We had such a great time talking about “Prepare” last week!
This week is going to be an amazing mix of helpful, practical advice, while also coming alongside each other to acknowledge the heart-wrenching, exhausting process it is to pack up your life and move it to another country.
Here’s what’s happening this week:
Tuesday – Join us as we talk at Book Club about the range of emotions we experience in our line of work: gratitude for the privileges we have, guilt over the same privileges, and frustration at the systems we can’t seem to influence. Come write a prayer for the city you serve in!
Wednesday – “Can I take my whole kitchen?” we’ve all asked ourselves. Ashley Felder will share with us her list of must-have’s for her packing list. Save yourself the mental energy and come copy her list! AND… she’ll have a fabulous new recipe to try out (or to save for a future day when you’re un-packed.)
Thursday – Lovely Laura will be sharing about the freedom that comes with learning to live in simplicity. Oh, the power of less…
Friday – Join us at The Grove beginning at 6amEST. Bring your link-ups, comments and art on the prompt “Pack.” I’ll be sharing some great tools to help your packing process. We’ll talk about the #1 thing I wish I would have packed, and that “I can’t believe I actually brought this across the world” item (what was I thinking??). We’ll share about the unwanted emotional baggage we carry with us too.
Know someone moving overseas? Throw them a life-line and share Velvet Ashes with them this week!
