After the whirlwind that was 2017, 2018 has, similarly, been filled to the brim — and 2019 shows no sign of slowing down. I understood that 2018 would be a year of change, and it’s certainly lived up to its billing. From changing jobs, to getting ordained, to moving into a new house, to entering full-time ministry, this year has been quite a ride. But through it all, God’s been faithful and gracious. I couldn’t be more thankful for what God’s brought me through and what we’ve been able to see and do and be a part of.
