In my last few posts I have been hinting that I have plans for my next step of life, and that I do!
After months of job searching the Lord provided, as always! I have accepted a job, have housing lined up, and tomorrow I am moving to Charlottesville, VA!
I am both thrilled and terrified to begin this journey!
Here’s the thing, ever since I graduated high school and attended a week of culinary school in Tuscany, I have been questioning the role of food in my life. As I planned 4-course meals at home, read Michael Pollen for fun, and sold dinner party packages at silent auctions, I always pushed further training aside knowing that cooking and caring about food could always be a part of my life despite other career goals. It is thrilling to finally have an opportunity to delve into these passions of mine through ministry! It is terrifying in that there will be lots of work to be done in a community that I have not even met yet – but after moving across the world to China, surely Virginia can’t be too bad. 😉
I’m not sure whether I will continue this blog, start a new site, or express myself in other formats but thanks for reading, following, and sending prayers throughout my journey. As I mentioned in a previous post, the journey is not over.
I am still “Taking the Call.”
