A FRESH START to an exciting journey

cornerstone has been a growing//strengthening place

I am excited and very sad to say that this past thursday was my last day employed at cornerstone christian fellowship. Turning in my keys, signing paperwork, cleaning out my desk, and saying goodbye brought tears to my eyes. Closing a chapter in my life is always so hard for me. I am a very sedimental person, and I hold on to memories. I hold on to days, chapters, situations, and settings in my life. I will greatly miss working next to the most amazing people, and doing life together as we stare into the glare of the computer screen. In general I am an intervert But somthing about being with and next to people makes my heart very happy and very hard to leave.

The great news is that I am taking a risk and spreading my wings. God has been so faithful and at this time I am ready to continue to pursue my dreams. I have a lot of changes coming up that i am excited to share with you. I have a few large projects coming up, and also a revamp on some of my online sites. such as my blog. Woohoo. I am so stoked to have a new blog template and to continue to grow this community online. I hope you will stay with me through these changes. I really appreciate everyone who reads and comments on my blog. A huge thank you to all of you who are so encouraging. This new blog has lots of room to grow. I will eventually have a shop, ad space, and some new features on my official website. so many exciting things coming up.

    Email me and tell me more about your new adventure. I’m sure Cornerstone will miss you. But, like me, I’m sure they are celebrating your tenacious chase after God’s next mission field for you.

    Is Brian still at Cornerstone? When’s the BIG day? Is it getting closer?
