This morning... was great! Micah and I are starting our 5th year here at MWSB and we love it! It is such a good place for us and one thing that God has really been placing on my heart is staff unity and staff encouragement. We get so busy at investing in the lives of students that sometimes we really fail at taking the time to get involved in each others lives. There are 3 other staff ladies (that are apart of married teams... ie there are 4 married couples on staff - Micah and I are one of the 4) and 3 single ladies that cook for the students. We all meet with students and inevitably there are always similar issues that we all deal with. I had an idea that it would be wonderful to get together and be able to talk about how to deal with students with certain issues... not only to encourage each other, but to LEARN from each other. Today - we talked about eating disorders. Every year there are women with eating problems - it is a HUGE problem and it breaks my heart! I scheduled a guest speaker to come and share with us how to and how NOT to deal with someone with an eating disorder.
Over our cups of apricot spice tea and lemon mint water we were able to share a few hours just sharing with each other and gaining wisdom. It was good... heartbreaking but good! I am glad that it went well and I am gonna start planning for another time together.
