This year has faced it's share of challenges, but I am excited to come home because I am in such a different place than where I was a year ago.
I went home last year pretty much burned out. I honestly didn't know how much longer I could continue in ministry. I was just so tired.
But, this year has been good. It has had some really hard seasons, but it has been so good. I have learned about conflict. I have learned about how to manage burnout. I have learned how to communicate better. I have learned how to ask the right questions. I have learned about God's greater vision for me. I feel stretched and grown and excited and good.
It has been a good year.
And I love that I am walking into time at home in such a different place.
I need rest, but I will be able to be so much more present and filled this time around.
My time at home is always crazy and this trip is no exception.
December 30-January 6--Portland, OR
January 6-23--Bay Area, CA
January 23-30--Orange County, CA
January 30-February 3--Knoxville, TN
February 3-10--Raleigh, NC
I am looking forward to my fill of quality time, Mexican food, and fun. A little nervous about the weather (just saw -17degrees in Colorado while it was 101 degrees here today), but excited about everything else!
See you soon!
