Everything has changed…

19 08 2014

It’s been more than a year since I’ve even contemplated looking at my blog, much less adding any new posts. And what a year it has been! Since my last post, I have (in no particular order): quit my full-time job as a youth minister, quit my part-time job as a violin teacher, taken on a new job at a non-profit organization, rescued a puppy, written my thesis, graduated with my master’s degree, and survived nine months of pregnancy as well as one blissful month of motherhood. 

One year ago, I never could have anticipated the twists and turns that lay ahead in this journey. Even now, as I write and reflect, I’m amazed by all of the changes that have taken place in my family in such a short period of time. 

Needless to say, as I turn to my blog again, my focus has changed! While I still have several youth ministry ideas that I want to share on the blog, youth ministry is no longer my day-to-day reality. Instead, there is an 8-pound baby boy who is currently consuming most of my attention, time, and energy. My relationship with the church has changed: I’m back to being just a regular layperson and am very much enjoying that vantage point. And as I emerge from the haze of grad school, I’m also rediscovering my own identity and the things that I am most passionate about.

Bear with me in the midst of these transformations. I don’t know exactly what I will be doing within this space, but I am excited about what lies ahead. I am looking forward to new ministry opportunities and new creative outlets…and as always, will be reflecting on where those two intersect.

Hope you’ll join me in the journey!
