**My friend Joanne, wrote a book! And it is here! MISPLACING GOD (and finding Him again) looks like it is REALLY going to be great–I started it this morning! I will let you know more about it when I am in it deeper. GREAT JOB JOANNE!

**My husband has been teaching Sunday school for our high schoolers at church for almost 4 years. With a few exceptions, he has taught each week, during the second service. Although a difficult choice, Sean decided to step down from that ministry. This past Sunday he was thanked by the students at HOT OFF THE GRILL! (What says high school quite like greasy food?!). They bought him a soccer ball (appropriate) and each signed it. It has a picture in the middle of all the kids and Sean at winter camp. Too cool.
Sean, I admire your commitment to the students and appreciate how consistent you were, week in and week out. It’s not common these days to find someone like you to work in ministry and I am proud of you. I know that God used you to reach out to the students. I look forward to seeing where else the Lord will use you at our church.

**I am learning how much people value honesty. I find that the more I open up to others, the more they open up to me and the more that the Lord is able to work in a relationship. So….how about a little honesty?
At the same time I was being hired as the children’s director at our church (about 6 years ago), I was applying to several Masters Programs and also several seminaries. I was accepted to several of each (And denied as well), but decided to pursue my career at ShoreLife. While I don’t regret my last 6 years as a children’s director, I do often wonder what would have happened in my “professional career” had I pursued my education in that way. The line of work that I wanted to go into, intrigues me and I think about it often…wondering if 1.) I would have been any good at it 2.)would even be pursuing it HAD I gone to school and 3.) I would have enjoyed it as much as I think I would.
So there you go. If that isnt good enough……well…..how about this………
*I hate washing my hair. I hate it I hate it I hate it and will avoid it by pulling it back and calling it a “hairstyle”, putting baby powder in it to soak up the grease, wearing a hat or using a headband. Sick, i know…
*I want to be a super-spy.
*I wish I had skinny legs and I have come to grips with no matter HOW much I work out….I won’t. And it’s ok. Really. I’m ok with it…….(weeping quietly…..)
