Things are going well. We have our routine down and the kids seem to be doing great! We have learned the seven continents and are traveling to each. The picture is our continent cake! We have "traveled" through North America, learning all the states in the US and some major ones in Canada and Mexico. We then entered South America and did a large study on Brazil. Now we are in the continent of Europe and are studying Norway. The boys have one more lesson in their year curriculum of math so they will move on to the next level after making A's on most of their tests. Carmen is working on all second grade things instead of first. I am very proud of each of them and I thank God for giving me this opportunity. I see it as a very high calling and responsibility and am leaning on my Savior to give me the wisdom and strength that I need to fulfill this call.
The other role that is new for me this year is the role of being the lead pastor's wife. Most of my and Derrick's marriage I have been a worship pastor's wife. This was a role that was very familiar to me. I was raised as a worship pastor's daughter, one of my passions is leading in worship and Derrick and I have always been very comfortable in this role. God is stretching both of us and has blessed us with the opportunity to lead a wonderful group of people that we love so much and with them hope to reach the community which surrounds our church. In the last six months we have seen God do some amazing things and I am honored to be a part!
So these are my new roles that I will grow in daily and pray that Jesus be glorified. God has called you to a significant work and He will equip you to do it! Will you be faithful and do it?
