Life Lessons from Yoga

What’s your go-to favorite workout? Mine is definitely yoga! I love it because not only is it stretching, toning, a full-body workout, energizing, and healthy – it’s also gentle. While I enjoy the occasional Zumba session, generally, crazy intense cardio workouts are not my thing. Yoga is perfect for me. Last year I discovered the…

Tracking My Year in Words

For 2017, one of my big goals is to consistently use a planner. I’m mainly going to need this organizational skill over the camp season when life, work, and ministry are busy busy busy and full of deadlines.
