tears of joy

Recent highlights:

  1. I haven’t killed my flowers yet! They’re blooming and growing. I’m so proud.

  2. I preached for the first time without my sermon completely written out on Sunday. The confidence to step away from the page and speak honestly was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I was so overwhelmed as I drove home, that tears started flowing down my face. I cannot believe God would use me to help someone connect to God.

Personally, people who write their sermons out offer a great ministry to others. They can post their sermon text online so it can be used again and again. There is a person in prison who gets my dad’s sermons every week because he writes them out. So for me, a combination works.

  1. I’m finally really digging into all this footage I got back in April of young leaders. And I’m inspired all over again! It will be used in this presentation for GBHEM & BOM chairs in August. I’ll put the final footage here too. So excited!!

  2. We threw a baby shower for my sister & brother in law last Sunday. Lots of family & laughter. Jason loved his Star Wars diaper bag. 🙂

  1. I turn 26 on Sunday! And my mom gets into town for a visit this Saturday. And they’re letting me preach again this weekend. haha.

  2. We are God’s instruments to do this work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you – from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. (1 Peter 2:9-10)
