A Change

Life has changed a bit for James and I. James is still studying and mapping in the Geography Program, and I must say he is doing a fine job. I, on the other hand, have taken a full time position at the coffeehouse. I am absolutely loving it right now. Currently my position with the CCO has changed to associate status (meaning I’m working roughly 10hrs a week with campus ministry). I believe this was a good decision and I am looking forward to this year as I strive to learn all things local business and everything I can about the bean. We are in the process of sending out our final newsletter. I look forward to sharing more with you and explaining it more in depth if you would like.

Therefore I am taking over this blog. I want to share my thoughts and ideas. I want to be more intentional about recording life here in this town and sharing the fun things that I am finding and learning. I hope this is intriguing and thought provoking. I do not think much will change, but I hope there can be a bit of inspiration here.

For Rent

So the search begins. Yes we are looking for an apartment/house/anything! The other night James and I came up with a list of things that are important to us when it comes to searching for a home. Here are a few:

  • Pet Friendly
  • Affordable (!)
  • Close walking distance to work and campus
  • Guest/student friendly (to have student over to diner or an occasional guest stay)
  • Workable Kitchen (counter space and double sink)

We ordered a list of 12 and then prayed over the list and also for wisdom.  May we find a place, in through it all may we be discerning and wise about our options!  Please pray for us and our search…


p.s. James’ trip went great! He said that the weather was beautiful in the beginning of the week and they march right into rain during the end of the trip. Needless to say, it seems to be rejuinating and good all around.  Thank you for your prayers!!!

Greetings fellow bloggers and friends. James and I decided that we would like to start a blog together. In this space we desire to share the interesting tidbits of ministry, life and other random thoughts. As many of you know James is currently working with the Pisgah Program and I am working at The Commonplace Coffeehouse. Two very distinct ministries in completely different settings, however there are great places of connect. We hope that you can join us in these stories and maybe share a few of your own.
