Happy Blog-iversary

I can hardly believe it’s been a year since I started this blog.  Mainly, it was an attempt to journal everything God is doing along this awesome journey of church planting.  It’s also been a great way to keep our friends and supporters in the loop as we celebrate the “wins” along the way.  Here’s a look back at some of the most memorable posts:

Our big announcement that God was calling us to plant a church down unda prompted my first post. A short while after, we made the announcement that we would be moving to Newcastle.  Our son, Brett, had a wonderful reaction to the news and I wrote about it along with an encouragement to us all!

A three-part blog on why the church matters ended with a celebration of the fact that the church is not a place we go, but a people who ARE!  Shortly thereafter, we had our biggest transition to date, leaving staff at Celebration Church and ending a wonderful fruitful season there.  This meant No Turning Back!

This great video articulates our vision and story (and has cute footage of my kids who have already changed so much!). Then, we started the year off with prayer and fasting and God really spoke to me deeply about breaking through to Him!  One of my favourite posts prophesied the amazing neighbours God has placed us among.

I DID have a few moments of wanting to throw in the towel on this whole gig and I wrote about one of them in early April just before we left.

Perhaps most significantly, I can testify to God’s faithfulness in his provision.  First with our house and secondly with the first Lift Church members!

I am looking forward to many more testimonies of lives changing and a city being impacted by our team as it continues to grow.  I hope you will follow along and be a part of all God is doing in and through our family.
