Early in my journey I saw the value of embracing a personal mission statement to provide direction for my days. I created a profoundly simple version that has served me well.
Have you noticed that no matter how your world is turned upside down or how much disappointment is heaped upon you, there is really nowhere else to look but up? Have you noticed that after navigating a particularly difficult season in life you eventually come around to an attitude of gratitude once again?
Transitions provide perfect opportunities to temporarily stop the tempo of life and linger to contemplate perspectives gained through change.
Building a successful ministry team, especially a volunteer one, is about everyone caring to the same degree. Wonderful things happen when a group of individuals with the capacity to care deeply come together and participate fully in a team. What follows is often a season I like to refer to as the glory days!
