I’ve enjoyed taking a bit of a social media break during the last month, as I know many of you have. We had family in town for the holidays and just got to enjoy some down time. I tried to stay off my computer as much as possible for the last two weeks which meant I got some home projects done, read some new books and puttered around.
While all my family was in town we managed to capture some new family pictures.
As we move forward into the new year there’s some new stuff going on.
First, this week I start a 10-hour a week position as a local admissions rep for our alma mater, John Brown University (in Arkansas). We love John Brown and I am super-excited about the opportunity. I will get to visit high schools, attend college fairs and share my love of JBU with high schoolers. It’s exactly what I was looking for – a part time position that I would love, that would be flexible and that wouldn’t burn up all my creative energy that I want for writing and other projects. God provided just what I needed.
Second, I’m going to be an Aunt again as my brother and his wife started the process to adopt the MOST beautiful two-year-old girl from China. I cried the first time I saw her photo. So it’s good that they’re adopting her since otherwise we might have had to 🙂 It looks like I may also travel to China with them so that I can help take care of big brother and sister. Which probably means you’ll be seeing me do some fundraising for them to help cover travel expenses.
I’m booking speaking engagements for 2013 so if you have a MOPS group or adoption group that you’d like to have me speak at, I would love to hear from you. You can get a bit more info here.
