My entire adolescent life, I had the privilege of watching my older sister pave the path for me and my relationship with my parents by making the sort of choices a stereotypical pastor’s kid would be expected to make. Nowadays she sets the example for army wives of blended families, all while making her home extremely welcoming to all who enter, never turning away even one of the bajillion kids in the neighborhood.
I am so proud to call her my sister, and also so excited to see her start this new journey of sharing her thoughts and experiences of raising a blended family, military life, and ministry on her blog.
She’s all kinds of awesome, go over and show her some love!
While this is my first year in full time ministry, it is not my first year experiencing the anticipation of holy week. It is exciting to watch our staff prepare and diligently place the Stations of the Cross throughout our campus. This year, our ministry team asked if our family would participate by providing something of remembrance for the 9th station.
