A Hope-Filled Life (Literally): All about My New Job

Friends! Hello! It feels like it has been ages since I have been here (even if you hadn’t noticed!) — my life has been transitioning a TON lately and some things have taken a back burner to that. If you don’t follow me on social media, you might not know this, but ya girl got a new job!

I’m officially now on staff at my beloved home church!

It has been a long-held dream and prayer of mine to join the team at Hope, and I’m so incredibly grateful for the way the Lord has been orchestrating everything over the years and the last few months to bring this to fruition. I’ve called Hope home for 9 years, and have been involved in a lot over that time, so this is such an exciting new season. My title is Communications Coordinator, and I’ll be managing all things communications — the site, the worship guide, social media, emails, print materials, etc! DREAM COME TRUE FOR REAL.

I wrapped up my 3.5 years at my last job in early March, which was definitely bittersweet (my coworkers there were AMAZING and it’s weird not seeing my best friends every day!). I worked to be really intentional about ending well, setting my coworkers up for future success, and making sure I left on a good note, keeping connections and friendships alive and letting my team know how thankful I was for each one of them. It was a bit of a frenzy to try to wrap up projects, train people on my tasks, and write guides to hopefully help my successor, but it went well and I’m thankful I got to tie up that season of my life with a nice bow.

It’s been just one week of my adventure at Hope so far, and I’m already feeling so excited, thankful, fired up, energized, inspired, and humbled. Getting to work alongside ministry leaders, pastors, and creatives that I have loved and called friends for years is such a joy. Getting to help steward and share the story of our church, our people, and our God is an honor. To have a job that doesn’t really feel like work feels like hitting the jackpot!

So, so grateful.

I’m anticipating things to be a little quieter around these parts as I get settled into my new role and new rhythms, but know that all is well, and I’ll be back when I have some margin and some words to share.

Thank you to everyone who has been cheering me on, praying for me, and supporting me in this season— I don’t take a bit of it for granted, and am so blessed to be surrounded by such an incredible community both online and off. You all are the best!
