Hi, guys. I know I'm been MIA for months. It's not that I haven't thought to spend time with my blog; I've thought of it almost every day. It's just that some new things have come into my life in the last couple months, and I've really needed to focus on them.
I had been feeling very overwhelmed at times, but that feeling is mostly gone. It started with our kids Bible club at church. We had decided to change the program we were using, and we had to be trained on how to run the new club this fall. That involved many meetings and planning.
Our Word of Life club started at the end of August, and we are now in full swing. I am working with 5th & 6th grade girls, and I already love it. My ministry involves discipling them and helping them go deeper in their relationship with Christ.
The second big change for me is that I have taken on another ministry. I started teaching Sunday School the first Sunday of September for the 4th-6th graders. I have taught before, but it's been a lot of years. It feels very new, and there are challenges in front of me.
In addition to all of that, I'm making some dietary changes. At the end of August I read an article on Kelly the Kitchen Kop's blog about which type of milk is healthiest, and I was blown away. It began a journey for me into the domain of Real Food. I have left the low-fat diet behind. No more processed foods for me! (at least to the best of my ability) My new motto is if God made it, it must be good. If man manufactured it, it's highly questionable. Anyway, making this diet move has involved much reading of books and blogs, and it's been both educational and overwhelming to take in.
So that's where I've been. I really didn't want to leave you hangin' any longer.
