Back to Work

As of tomorrow, I am back to work.

After lengthy back and forth discussions with various leaders at my church, I was named the Director of Preschool Ministries this morning.

I am really excited about this for so many reasons, but there are two reasons that this is perfect for me.

One: I have a true passion for working with kids and watching them grow especially in their relationships with Christ. I am so thrilled to be getting to help our three, four, and five year olds start on their faith journey. It is equally exciting that Barrett will be entering the preschool program this Fall, and I'll get to see things from the parent perspective as well. Although, if I hate something, I'll have to complain to me!

Two: My part time job doesn't change the time I am with my kids at all. I will work while they are at school at the church, and I will work Sunday mornings which is nothing new to my family. I will have other responsibilities, but they are all things that I already do!

I have been wanting to "do something" for a couple of years now, and I really feel blessed that this has fallen into place.

Hopefully, I am still this excited when I actually start the job. :)
