It's a new year (February still counts as "new year" season right??), and we're full of inspired ideas and personal renewal. We hope the new year has brought renewal, rest, and inspiration for you as well. In January, our TWU faculty team met for our second annual retreat. Many great ideas and plans came from this retreat, but the ones we want to share with you right now regard this blogging space! We have MANY wonderful ladies on our team that are gifted in many ways. One of the things we focused on during our retreat was our individual strengths so we can all flourish in serving together as we operate out of our strengths. As a result of this, we built and added to several focused teams, one of them being a blogger team! We now have a team of 8 women who will be regularly blogging here. Many of them blogged before, so you will of course recognize them, but we have some new faces (and typing fingers) joining us. Having a team will also bring more energy and creativity here, and we're excited and hope you will be too!
For some of our first posts of this new year, we want to take some time to allow you, our readers and friends, to get to know the women behind the words. We'll also be introducing a new blog design and talking on new topics, but first and foremost, we want to connect with you! We want to engage you, serve you, speak and share encouraging words of truth with you, be honest and real with you, we want to be real friends (as opposed to the surface level kind of friends who don't experience the ups and downs of life together)! And not just real friends, but real spiritual, gospel friends.
Tim Keller says, "Spiritual friendship is eagerly helping one another know, serve, love, and resemble God in deeper and deeper ways." We want to know you. We want you to know us. But more than that, we want to help each other know more about Jesus, His truth, and serving. We want to push each other to resemble God in deeper and deeper ways! So join us back here in a few days and enjoy meeting our lovely writers.
We'll be back soon!
