Nancy's Story

Choosing Rest

You haven’t heard much from us this summer because as a ministry we tried to pull back and take time to rest. I can honestly say, “It has been so wonderful!”

For me personally, I took the month of July off from the “work” of ministry. It was a month of not taking naps everyday in the hammock (which isn’t a bad thing!) or heading to the mountains to be by myself (which sounds great) but it was about being intentional with people – enjoying the moments, showing up, being present, letting go of “to-do” lists.

COME

As I sat down and had intentional time with Jesus the last few days of 2017, I asked Him what my word for 2018 should be. I had some ideas that I was thinking about, but it’s amazing to watch Him specifically answer when I specifically ask.

He showed me a word that wasn’t on my list yet and all of the sudden it jumped off the pages afresh as I was reading through Isaiah:  COME

The Ripple-Effect Investment

Last week I had one of those weeks where I was doing a lot but I began to think, “Does any of this make a difference?”

Do you ever feel that way? Your wheels are spinning, your to-do list is long, and you stop to gain perspective . . .”will this really matter for eternity?”

Waiting Well

In the past couple of years, I’ve had to do a lot of waiting.

Waiting for our house to sell.       

            Waiting to purchase a house.                       

                        Waiting for my husband to get out of surgery.

                                    Waiting for a ministry to launch.

                                                Waiting for the call of God on my life to be fulfilled.

                                                            Waiting for a job for my husband.
