It seems nearly every week that a ministry or marketplace leader asks me about the blog, and how it works, not the technical aspects but the regular rhythm of sending out new content nearly every day. It took me more than a year of writing a blog to get into a good rhythm, but typically I spend a few hours one night a week and write 3-4 blog posts in batches, and then send them in to be edited and scheduled. The inspiration for each post can come from a variety of places: questions leaders have recently asked, something I have read, or a burden the Lord has given me to say something specifically. I have been as many as 9 weeks out in blog content, but typically I am 2-3 weeks out in scheduled posts.
And then there is now.
I don’t have anything scheduled.
This week I am speaking at one of our student camps while my girls are attending one of our kids camps at the same location, and next week I am taking Kaye on our annual summer just-the-two-of-us-we-get-to-sleep-in vacation.
I thought about writing a bunch while at camp but remembered a conversation with Trevin Wax who I am honored to serve alongside. When I first started blogging, Trevin was a big help and encourager in content and how to plan a blog. Trevin usually takes July off from blogging so he can proactively get ahead with new content. I am going to follow his example and take several summer weeks off from posting new content. All is well. I am extremely grateful for my family, my team, and the role the Lord has given me. I don’t deserve any of them.
I will be back soon!
