For the past two days I have been on a planning retreat with the Bloom (Stadia) Leadership team in the hills of Tennessee. Tonight I am sitting by a fire and helping a couple fellow church planting wives create their own blogs. We have spent the entire day planning for Bloom 2013. I cherish these times we gather to work because we get to laugh and share and impact the lives of women planting churches all across the world. It has been a productive and tiring day and now we are just relaxing and sharing tech tips. And silly thoughts, and exhausted comments…and maybe a little Downton Abbey. Don’t you just love your girlfriends?
