So much has happened. In the past month I have completely uprooted my life and moved....to Florida? Yea, never thought Id be saying that but if I've learned anything from this process its that I don't know anything.
Watching a Sewanee rugby game at my sisters family weekend in November, I struck up an intense conversation about my life to one of her friends dads. I had no idea he was an Episcopal priest, and that I would eventually work for him as his new youth minister.
Youth ministry? Many of you are probably shaking your heads. You will laugh when I say that when I was 12 years old thats what I wanted to be when I grew up. Bought a guitar and everything. As I got older I got distracted in school, activities, friends, guys, you name it. It was only when I got offered an interview did I remember that this in fact used to be a passion of mine.
I really did some 'soul searching' or whatever you call it and decided to go for it feet first and ask questions later. This tends to be my life approach and it hasn't steered me wrong yet. I have full faith that Gods always looking out for me. I have only found lots of joy and reassurance from this decision.
Many challenges lay ahead including building a youth program from scratch as well as adjusting to a completing new town that’s so far from my beloved Nashville. But no worries I’m still the same old girl that’s always up for a long chat, shopping day, beach day, and a good time no matter when or where...
