At our MSA staff meeting just before my recent trip to Australia, we discussed the importance of our families and how they impact our work.
Our families shape not just who we are but also what we are as an organization.
I am very aware of that as I reflect on how my mother influenced my life. I am so grateful to God for her and the ways that she helped shape all I am and do. Even in her death she continues to influence me and shape my work, MSA and the life of others. I am so grateful to the many of you who have prayed and comforted me over these days and for the encouragement from those of you who have drawn strength and faith as I shared my journey.
Here is a complete list of the prayers and blog posts I wrote during this important journey.
