This weekend I had the opportunity to get away with both sides of our family to Pigeon Forge. Between the aquarium, Dollywood, lots of eating, and a ton of time just catching up it has been a great get away. Physically I am still pretty worn out and hoping to catch a nap tomorrow, however I definitely wouldn’t trade this time away.
On a more personal level I have been trying to get back in the habit of doing some more reading and personal studying. Last week I finished a book about effective ministry tips. And one of the biggest ones is just the simplifying. Finding what my focus is in ministry and simplifying so that I can put all my best gifts and passions towards being the best servant for God possible. Since then this is an area that I have been thinking about and praying about for the future with whatever God has me doing. I really want to make this a goal so that I can serve God to the full potential that He has given me!
