Discovering Your Potential

Last night at the Coastal offices, we had a Discover class -- it was my first time to attend, and I was excited to learn more about what God has designed and called me to do, especially NOW in my current age and stage! The goal of the class was to unite our unique personalities with our God given spiritual gifts to help uncover next steps for making a difference in our community and grow in our ministry potential! 
If you are in South Florida, I would really encourage you to attend the next Discover class at Coastal Community Church! I loved that the class was a combination of fellowship, teaching, and inventory tests -- that ended with time to evaluate our specific next steps, individually, in our current life situation.

Personally, I have been trying to figure out my new roles in ministry both at home and with my family. It is a challenge to figure out what to say "yes" to and what to decline outside of the home. Sometimes the things I should to say "no" to may be things that I would have wanted to do, but either can't do in this stage of life, or doing so would overextend my family. I'm not the only one [or arguably even the main one] I have to care for anymore, and my choices also have to reflect that. 

Josh is good about encouraging me and providing opportunities to get out with friends to hang-out or do ministry together. 
I've found that being an extroverted stay-at-home mom has proved to be quite the challenge in a place where moms I know are working outside of the home during the day, when I'm by myself. So, here are a few of my goals that I wrote down at the end of discover as I looked toward how to continue to grow, now:: 

My Family 

- get out and explore nature more with Marshall -- share the joy in teaching my kids to enjoy and appreciate God's creation 
- intentionally teach Marshall more songs based on faith and scriptures 
My personal favorites for faith songs: Ask Me Whooo (for younger ages) and Seeds Family Worship (for older ages)
My Faith/Church
- work on piano skills
- come alongside Josh in worship ministries
- co-lead a small group in our home with Josh
- become more disciplined in my personal walk with Christ 
- continue to serve in worship ministries, children's ministry, and Adopt-a-Block

My Field of Opportunity/Job
- continue to grow in my knowledge and involvement in Worship Arts
- Listen to new music
- Be intentional about voice lessons and helping others in music
