Celebration And Time Away

Those of you who follow me on social media have seen some of the photos recently talking about my wife finishing up her Master’s degree. She’s been working for the past 17 months on her Master’s in Educational Leadership. Some of the rolls she could take with this would be as principal, director of Special Education, or as professor at a university as a teaching professor.

Co-Occurring Program Coordinator

This week is another new change for me. I can finally announce that I will be moving into the position of Co-Occurring Program Coordinator. I will still be doing Co-Occurring treatment where I work with clients on mental health and substance use treatment. But on top of that, I will help create and build up our program through an administrative role as we implement several new treatment components to our agency to help people find recovery in the Ashland county area.

I’m super excited but would love your prayers as I go into this new endeavor.

There is certainly more in the pipleline to come as well as other things I’ve glossed over because there is so much fun stuff.

Easter 2019

This weekend’s Easter Sunday was so good for the soul. Did I get to sleep in? No. Did I get stuff done for work or other side projects? Nope. But the weather was nice for an egg hunt, we got to spend time with family, the message of Christ empty from His tomb was so renewing, and the children smiling (at least when they weren’t crying from candy withdrawals) was so good to see.
