I’ve done work on websites before, but not with quite this level of responsibility. It was a little scary, but it was an amazing feeling when it was all done, running well and looking pretty. I learned some css (a kind of computer language) and generally had a blast helping a team whose heart it is to tell folks about Jesus and build community. Woohoo!
We grow when we stretch ourselves. Living in what is known is comfortable, but it doesn’t challenge our thinking or our abilities. I think we are healthier and just more interesting when we are learning new ideas or taking on a new challenge (I’m not knocking the known, just saying we need the occasional challenge too).
So why not try something new? Learn to speak Spanish. Visit a nearby museum with works by an artist you’ve never heard of. Read a book about sex and try a new position. Start a blog. (It’s OK to invite your husband along on the journey. He might enjoy the adventure as well as the company!)
