In this episode, I chat with Jessica Leigh Hoover.
Jessica Leigh Hoover is a wife, mama, writer and grace lover. Her family has a bit of wanderlust which has taken them all over the place including West Africa. Currently she is doing life in the hills of Western, North Carolina with her husband and 3 year old daughter. Her journey has been filled with loss, laughter and everything in between and she writes about it all on her blog JessicaLeighHoover.com
In this episode Jess and I open up the episode with a chat about living in Charlotte and her new house.
Jess then shares the story of how her and husband were missionaries in West Africa three years ago. They came home before their term was up because Jess was pregnant. That sent them back into the professional world. After a year and a half in Charlotte they made a big leap to return to working with their sending agency stateside. After a year of raising financial support, Jess’s husband was offered a job in his professional field again- completely out of the blue.
It was in this decision whether to remain with the agency or return to the professional field that God asked them to trust Him, even when the decision didn’t look like the presumed faithful thing to do. Jess shares how the story unfolded and the lessons they learned along the way.
