I thought I would update you on a few of the things I’ve shared with you here at Work in Progress Wednesday.
During our first ever WIP Wednesday, I talked about wanting to memorize Scripture more and mentioned joining up with the ladies at Do Not Depart for accountability. I have signed up to begin memorizing 1 Peter 1 with them next week!
Then I talked about finding rest and trusting God’s plan–especially in regards to this blog. Let’s just say that one is definitely still a work in progress. I find myself conflicted between wanting to improve at my craft to better serve the readers and the hidden motive of wanting to “improve” to increase the numbers. It’s a daily battle.
Literally–daily, I tell myself, “The Lord has got this. Let it be.” What is your it?<—Click to Tweet!
Next up was my vision for Tot School with Thomas. I did faithfully write my lesson plans, so that I have some to go from now for August. However, I realized I wrote out way more stuff than we are getting done. Partially because I just wrote too much and partially because I’m not making enough of an effort to do the activities. We’ve done well at reading our Bible story. What seems to work for us is reading during meal times. He will actually sit still and listen to the whole story!
I shared with you my desire to be mentored and call to mentor. I’m really excited to say that I am meeting my my mentee TODAY! I hope she is as excited as I am. I’m looking forward to seeing what God does with this relationship! This post really seemed to resonate with a lot of you–I’m wondering if any of you have stepped out as well. Leave a comment and let me know!
Writing mission statements was also a post that lots of people related to. I would love to read your mission statements if you’ve written them! Share in the comments or link-up to your page that shows your mission statement. I have yet to do anything towards getting our mission statements in print and posted–mostly because that requires funds that I don’t have right now. I do have a lovely friend kindly offered to help me out with it once she gets her shop up and running.
The next post was just about feeling stuck and being tired. Some days are just like that, right?
Finally, last week I talked about really wanting to be more consistent on writing my eBook even if its just a couple of hours a week. I’m excited to say I wrote both Tuesday and Thursday last week for an hour each day. I feel better knowing I at least did something! I took some of y’all’s suggestions too and have gotten some post-its to write down my ideas when they come to me and I can’t write them out.
I hope this post wasn’t too much of a bore. I wanted to let you know where I am though in working through some of the things I’ve shared.
