Promoted and Tenured!!!!!!

It is official... Kevin was promoted and tenured at Indiana State University!!

He's been working so hard to reach this huge professional milestone for the last 6 years and it's finally time to celebrate.

We arrived in Terre Haute. Indiana as a family of 3 back in to 2015. 

Little did we know how much our family would grow here.  

We have worked really hard on making our house a home.

The kids go to wonderful schools. 

We have found numerous ways to get plugged into our community.

We've made good friends.

We added TWO boys to our family here.

We love being just 2 hours away from nearly all of our family.


We are all thriving in a city that was never on our radar.

God's plan is better than our plan and our family is proof of that.

Kevin's been busy teaching, researching, publishing, mentoring students, counseling, getting licensed, advising, working with veterans, consulting, guest lecturing, volunteering, lecturing, learning and teaching both virtually and in person.  

It's been a busy 6 years.  He's worked year round to get the job done.  We're so proud of him!

We got married and he started graduate school back in 2004 with the dreams of one day becoming a professor.  We had no idea what the road to professor would look like back then.  I would have been shocked to hear the words - Arkansas, Mississippi, 3 kids, many moves and stay at home mom way back then.

God has been so good to our family.

The years haven't all been easy.  There were plenty of hardships and unexpected trials along the way.  We are happy to have worked through all of them together and come out on the other side.  In the moment, things often seemed really hard and our path forward seemed unclear.  But, now years down the road, we are seeing that this is exactly where God wants us to be.

Way to go Associate Professor Kevin Jordan!

We wish we had gotten to go to an in person ceremony, but we will make sure to celebrate on our own!

And he gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers because, "I couldn't have done it without you!"
