In a day where every space on the calendar is filled with something--sometimes multiple "somethings" to accommodate each member of the family, it's easy to dismiss the items that actually add value to our lives. There's plenty of good things on the schedule, but are they the best things for this current season?
As ministry wives, we may continually feel like we are stretched beyond the limits of our own sanity at times. And it is because of this stretching that we place our own needs farther down the list. But what would happen if you put one thing, every three or four months, on the calendar that was just for you? Just a few hours that you intentionally set aside to connect with someone with fresh perspective but similar pressures, joys, highs, and lows? Furthermore, what would your personal schedule look like if you asked the Holy Spirit what He wants you to do in self-care?
But what would happen if you put one thing every three or four months on the calendar that was just for you?
Let's Connect events are the perfect opportunity to take your great intentions to great connections! These casual dinner gatherings are being hosted by ministry wives across the nation. By their definition, they are simply made up of dinner, laughter, conversation, and authentic connection. Here's what one of our veteran Let's Connect hosts had to say about the nature of her quarterly event:
"I've been surprised at times with the turnout, either by more or less than I expected but have found ministry wife friends here that I may not have connected with if I had not reached out. I always have each one tell the funniest thing that has ever happened to them in ministry. Believe me, ministry, people and praying for people can be quite hilarious. LOL ...I would encourage you to take your staff wives or even one friend that will listen to your heart, let you vent, and perhaps promise to pray for you."--Let's Connect host
