The past couple of weeks have been busy but SOOOOO good.
We've heard from amazing speakers such as Matt Nichols (team/ministry building & reaching out to the lost), Paul O'Rourke (God's heart for children), Dan Pankraz (youth branding & marketing), and Tom & Carrie McClung (biblical worldview).
The thing that God is continually highlighting to me throughout lectures and other work/ministry time is the importance of being intentional.
One thing that Matt Nichols kept saying was "it's about doing life with people"
Now, this is easier said than done because when it comes down to it, I believe we can all agree, everyone has their own drama- we all have family, friends, co-workers and as humans we're not perfect, we mess up.
Our actions have consequences good or bad and we affect those around us, good or bad.
However, all this aside, investing into someone is one of the most satisfying and rewarding things you can do. I love encouraging and helping people grow-in any area of life! I want to continually be challenged to reach out to those around me and I pray that I would have the strength to keep going even if it is difficult because I know it will be worth all the effort I put forth.
Hope you are a splendid day!
