"God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—my whole life one long, obedient response."

"The Gathering"

This past week I was able to go with Danny to the Gathering (a really cool get together for PDYM Mentors). I was able to meet a lot of his friends and guys he is always talking about. It was amazing to see a bunch of youth pastors get together not to compare but to encourage each other.

For me I was able to meet and hang out with other youth pastor wives. To be honest I was really nervous because I did not know what to expect (and I am a dork like that), but it was one of the most refreshing few days I have ever had in this kind of setting. It was so wonderful to be able to hang out with other women and be able to share with each other what we experience and to relate with each other.

For me personally what God whispered to me was the importance of having other things in my life outside of "church". Basically, church should not be my whole life. I know it is not like it is rocket science but it was something I needed to be reminded of.

The other big blessing for me was the new friends that I have!! I cannot wait for the next year!

(big thanks to my sister Michele for watching my boys so I could enjoy the time away)
