Hello Everyone!

Join us Saturday at 6:30pm for our bi-weekly Netflix Party movie night! This week it is between Bee Movie and The Lorax. I will send out the link a few minutes prior to 6:30, and I hope to see you all there.

On Monday I challenged you all to try something new. Could have been something you’ve been meaning/wanting to do, or it could have been something you were afraid to do, or maybe it’s all of the above. When I’m feeling down, there’s one simple step that often helps me to feel at least a little bit better. Changing up your routine, especially when it feels monotonous, can be a huge personal boost.

This week I stepped out of my comfort zone and made my second attempt at roasting my own coffee, and despite my apprehensions, it turned out pretty well!

I did it in two separate batches. The bottom roast was on the lighter side, and it turned out a little bit bland. The top roast, however, I cooked for a little longer at a slightly higher temp, and it turned out to be surprisingly tasty!

I didn’t come here to brag (although I must say I’m pretty dang proud), but I did want to encourage you to try something new! Maybe it’s intimidating, like roasting coffee was for me, but I guarantee it will be worth the effort.

And if you’re feeling defeated before you even start, remember what Paul tells us in Philippians 4:13:

“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

I hope you have all had a wonderful week. I look forward to seeing you soon.
