We took some time to be with friends this week. Friends who do what we do. Friends who understand what we do and what we carry. Friends who you can talk crazy honest with. The story, the dreams, the fears, the risks, the sacrifice, the rewards, the wisdom and the mistakes. As you launch what is within your heart, you need these people around you. They are refreshing, they are honest, they are real and they stir more in you
As you launch what is within your heart, you need these people around you. They are refreshing, they are honest, they are real and they stir more in you than any book or podcast ever can.
Face to face. Loud and crazy families around us. Navigating school break, pastoral emergencies, logistics of a launch, fundraising, preaching, laughter and tears of your kids, whispers between husband and wife when they are not listening to talk ‘shop’ because the need can’t wait until they are not around….. all the ebb and flow of parenting, pastoring and playing …
And watching friends do the same … perfect! Make sure they are in your world. Glean and encourage. Hang out. Laugh and navigate it together!
