Hometown Visit!

I am finally making my way back to Michigan for a week (I have an early flight tomorrow!). It's been TOO LONG (since December just before New Year's!).

Looking forward to catching up with a few people and enjoying the lake.

Time with family is my first priority, but if you want to get together, TEXT ME!

I have a wedding I am in, which is most of Thursday-Saturday, so beginning of the week is best for me!

Because SL has Impact Sunday, I am going to church with my dad at Overflow.

Hope to see you! If I don't see you this time, maybe next time around Christmas! :)

Protege Made Me....


Here's my TEDTalk video from 8/5.

There have been so many experiences this past year that have shaped who I have become. I am not the same person I was a year ago (thank God).

Today I had my exit interview with Heather and Emily, the two who have been over the protege program. It went well and I was able to share the impact this year has had on me. Likewise, it was really encouraging to hear them say what they have witnessed in my life this past year.

My challenge to you is: When was the last time you were uncomfortable?

We are coming to the End!

I'm two weeks away from the end of my protege year. It seems so unreal. As I talk to the girl who will be the next Events Protege, I am overcome with the same emotions I had when it was the beginning: nervousness about details and how it will all work out!

A few things to wrap up (although I hope to post in the next two weeks).

~ If you are contributing financially for the month of August, I will receive the money on August 29th. I'm not sure of the cutoff date, but it'd be nice to get it in by Aug 22nd to the office just to be sure! There are no words for how much you have blessed me this past year in supporting me. I could not be in DC without you. Thankful for each of you.

~ I am job hunting. I got accepted into the C. S. Lewis Institute (basically reading a bunch of books, attending lectures, and discussing life in a small group for a year), so I would really love to stay in DC. I had an interview on Friday with Americorps, a position tutoring kids in literacy. I have an interview on Monday with a job agency called Careers in Nonprofits. I am still applying to jobs in the area, so please keep me in prayer as I navigate that. Wisdom is needed.

~ I gave my last TEDTalk on Tuesday. I haven't posted it to Youtube yet. I was having an awful day (less than three weeks from the end of our program and I still don't have a job... just a little discouraged). I WILL post it soon!

Thanks for all the support this year. It has been a wild ride, and I'm looking forward to what God has for me next!
