Why I Write (Revised)

When I started this blog, I needed the place and space to write and work through the transitions from teaching to becoming a student again. I wanted to track and trace this journey as best as I could. Most of my blog posts at the beginning were about education. I still watching and waiting to find out whether I would still have a voice in the world of education. I was wondering whether I would still be able to relate to my teaching friends.

Then, I started writing on a hidden blog prettypreacher.com to try to work through the preaching I felt called to and the preaching opportunities I was encountering. I didn’t want to announce it to everyone. I didn’t want everyone to know that I was pursuing this because I was just getting started and the possibility of failure loomed.

But know as I start my first pastorate and I prepare to journey with this amazing community, I want to bring it all back together. I want to be me and I want to take you with me on this journey.
