Several folks have asked what we’re up to… So if that’s not you, I guess you can just ‘like’ this status because you’re in the know!
After leaving NBC in July, we became “professional” vacationers, not really on purpose just a lot of very cool opportunities fell in our lap. This was amazing not only for the fun times but because one of our main goals for this new season was to turn in as a family and spend lots of time together.
More recently I took a part-time job with Bixby High School to serve coaches and encourage student-athletes with the Spartan Code (also referred to as #DISC), a leadership curriculum I originally put together for the football team. I also started taking more speaking opportunities, specifically sharing the ’10 Things You should know about Teens& Tweens’ seminar with schools, churches and even libraries. Because of these two very cool opportunities and a couple more we are working on but can’t announce publically yet, we have created ‘Surge Leadership.’ This, prayerfully, will be a 501c3 that will umbrella several cool ministry opportunities and also be a beacon of leadership passionately seeking to help change the world.
As for the rest of the crew… the kids are hopefully beginning to settle in at their new school: Holy Family. This transition was a combination of a need for a full-day PreK and an incredible offer. Courtney received that offer, “that she couldn’t refuse,” from Murphy-Francy Law, which just so happens to be two blocks from the kids new school. Thus, God has been, and is, so good and so faithful, even in the midst of our doubts.
Thank you to so many who have prayed for us and checked in with us…we cannot even begin to tell you how valuable those texts, calls and cards are to us. Change is always hard and moving in a new direction is scary, especially when, at first, it appears to be so different from the previous decade. We are so excited for what we feel is a God led direction and focus. Please continue to pray for us and if you are looking for more to do, please go ‘like’ and even ‘share’ the new page: Surge Leadership!! More exciting news to come…
