First Week

At the request of Emily I will update you on my new job. I started on Monday after 4 wonderful days off. Last week was amazing just to catch up on life, get to hang out with my 7th grade small group, and see friends. It was so refreshing.

The new job is going great. It's very different than what I did at PwC, but I think it's going to be really interesting once I get the hang of things a little more. Most of all, I love the atmosphere. The people I work with are great. It's so different to be here. Yesterday we had staff prayer - I felt more like I was at a bible study than at work. And even though I work on the business side of things, it's really neat to be in this atmosphere and just to be a part of a ministry that I love.

Anyway - you will get more updates as I settle in. Thank you for all your prayers in this process. I feel very blessed.

Launch Retreat

For Labor Day weekend I went a young adults retreat with my church at Pine Cove. Even though it wasn't my usual favorite thing to do - because it involved getting out of my comfort zone a lot more than I would like - I ended up having a lot of fun. There were a lot of team games - which means I got to play a significant amount of volleyball, which means I have been a bit sore this week! The speakers were great - I always enjoy our pastor, and I'll jump on any oppurtunity to hear Matt Chandler speak! I'm excited about showing up to more young adult things at church now because I'll actually know some more people.

My possible favorite part of the weekend was just getting to be outside. East Texas is absolutely georgous with the trees and the weather cooled off just right. It was so nice to be out of the city and just enjoy the outdoors!
