On Thanksgiving, I was thinking about everything in my life I had to be thankful for. I wanted to take some time to thank YOU, my ministry partners, for your generosity, prayers, and encouragement. I could not do what I do without you! I know that sounds cheesy, but I mean it. Getting to do this for my job feels like a dream come true, and I absolutely love it. I am passionate about what God is doing on campus at UTD and what he is doing in the lives of the women that I get to work with. So thank you for allowing me to do what I do. I am so thankful for you!!
I had the privilege of preaching at our Friday Night Fellowship a couple weeks ago! We did a series about discipleship, and I talked about obedience as a response to the call to discipleship. Here is the link!
I also got to preach at my church that is actually the church I grew up in before they planted a church in Wylie that my Dad ended up pastoring. A lot of our UTD students attend there so I have been going the last few years. It was such a neat opportunity! I talked about the importance of one-on-one fellowship and share lots of stories of how Northeast church taught me those values. I tried to give some encouragments along the way.
Here is the link, and I start around the 22 minute mark: https://www.thenortheastchurch.com/content.cfm?id=315&download_id=1476
We had our Pizza Theology in November and it was awesome! Once a semester, we get together with the other FOCUS ministries on our different campuses and do two hours of lecture on a theological topic, an hour of eating pizza, and two more hours of lecture. It's one of our most attended events all year and was a great success! The theme was, "How to Think Like a Christian". I've linked it below in case you're interested!
