I hope everyone’s New Year is off to an awesome start. I wanted to let you know of some exciting changes. My time at IJM has come to a close. It has been an unbelievable journey these past 5 school years. I have been able to work along side the most passionate students on the planet! I’m so proud of all the work we’ve done with Stand For Freedom, NorthStar, Justice Weeks and all the other crazy things to help bring an end to slavery.
As for what’s next, I’ve got some exciting things coming together. I’ll be doing some non-profit consulting and continuing to speak. My newest book will hopefully launch this spring and I’ll be taking a writing sabbatical to finish a new book after that. All of that will coordinate around a project about finding your calling and how to pursue God’s will for your life.
Because that’s what all this is really about right? Figuring out what we were born to do. Life is short. I know there are moments where it seems long (looking at you 3:00AM kids screaming wake up calls), but those moments fade quickly.
When it comes to pursuing God’s call for our lives, I believe he’s doing multiple things in the process. One of those is helping us realize who we are in him. The other is becoming the person that can accomplish all that he has for us. This is a process that takes time, which is why God doesn’t give us step-by-step instructions on what he has for us. He gives it to us in bits. We learn. We take steps. We get a little more. We take more steps. This both pushes us to accomplish his will for us and puts us closer to him as we walk in relationship with him. This is the part of the way he makes all things new in each one of us.
So, here’s to a new year where he continues to make all things new.
A few ways you could help this year:
If you would like to help with the launch of my new book, send me a message and I’ll add you to the inside team.
I am now booking speaking engagements for Sept-Dec. If you have an event I could help with, please let me know.
In the mean time, let’s go do the work we were called to do.
