This summer has brought big transitions for us. Things are familiar, but with new twists.
We moved from Allendale, SC back to Greenville, but in a different part of town than we've ever lived. We are back at Grace Church, but at a different campus. I have a job working with children, but exactly what we will do is yet to be determined.
In the midst of this, our children are experiencing change as well. They are all still homeschooled, but going to a new cooperative. They are making new friends, especially at our new church campus.
Our daughter, Hannah, will be a teenager next month, and she recently took part in her first church mission trip. As you'd expect, she learned a lot that week. Even more, I grew in my appreciation of our awesome church, and all the staff and leaders who have supported us over the years.
I wrote about her experience on this mission trip, and how so many ministries at our church combined to help her understand herself and be in community.
Check out my guest post on the Grace Women's Ministry blog. It's called Beautiful Underneath.
“There is beauty and power in inviting, nurturing, and partnering. But to fully experience that beauty and power, the walls of self have to be torn down.”
