Back in February (is it possible to even think back that far?), some of our writing team spent an afternoon celebrating the first birthday of our AAC women’s blog.
We hoped to bring the celebration to you by reflecting on our first year and getting some feedback for the future. These plans, along with so many others, changed in the early spring as we pivoted in order to best support our readers in an ever-changing time.
However, one thing I’ve learned through 2020 is to still be looking for reasons to celebrate and find joy. With that, we want to celebrate one year (plus!) of publishing articles for our AAC women’s community! It’s been a vibrant first year of covering topics from motherhood, minimalism, blended families, recaps of AAC events, and leaving a legacy. Our women’s ministry team also wants to extend a thank you to the core blogger team that consistently shares their hearts and God’s truth through their gift of writing. Thank you Becky, Rachel, Katie, Nicole, Indigo, Elizabeth, Mindy, and our many guest writers!
As we look towards the rest of the year and even 2021, we want to hear from YOU. We want to know what you, our reader, wants to see in upcoming articles, so please take a moment to click here to give us some feedback.
As a thank-you, we will be selecting one survey responder to receive a 25$ gift card to Hobby Lobby! Submitting your name in the survey is optional, but it does enter you into the drawing for the gift card.
Thank you so much for your support and feedback!
Verse 10 tells us that God is found sitting on His throne. Note His posture. He is not pacing nor wringing His hands in powerlessness. He is sitting as King over all. He is communicating that He is confidently in charge. All honor and glory and power are ascribed to Him alone, not the other things in our world that we may find impressive or intimidating.

It’s not very often that having to make a big decision is easy. Most of the time, it leaves me feeling like a deer caught in headlights with eyes wide open and frozen in time, unable to make a move. As a family, we recently walked through just that.
As you may have already heard, our family has decided we are giving up everything that is comfortable and familiar to us, packing up, and heading South. We will be moving down to Clarkston, Georgia for the next three years to set up a youth ministry program for the refugee population that lives there. We will be partnering with an organization called Envision Atlanta. Technically, we will be missionaries.
To go on vacation or not to go on vacation — that is the question. Hundreds of thousands of schools, universities and other public institutions are closing worldwide, so should we really take that trip out west we have been planning for months?
For the past few years, we have been carefully working at reclaiming this area little by little from invasive weeds. It has been quite the process that can occasionally feel as if we are going nowhere. We succeed with new growth in one area only to have what appears to be more weeds growing in another. At times our hard work seems futile, but there is no area of my garden that reminds me more of God’s sovereignty, plans, and purpose.
