Julie and I are so thankful for all God did in our lives and the lives of our family in 2019. This was by far one of the best years of our lives. It’s hard to believe but this is our thirteenth tender Tennessee Christmas. This year Julie and I celebrated our 41 wedding anniversary. We love getting to spend so much time together with our family. We are so thankful and consider ourselves so blessed to also get to spend so much time with our Grands. They are so much fun and we cherish every minute! We know this is a gift not every grandparent gets to have. We are so proud of our kids, and how hard they work and how they seek Jesus even harder.
It’s also awesome to be back on staff at an amazing church! I love getting to serve the families and kids of The Belonging Company as the Executive Pastor of Families, Kids and Volunteers. Julie and I considerate a true honor to be surrounded by so many young families and get to do life with so many people who want Jesus over everything! If you live near Nashville we hope you’ll come and visit our church. If you can’t come here, check us out at www.thebelonging.co we livestream all our services. Next year we will be moving into our very own building, it’s going to be so cool! I love being a part of what Jesus is doing here in Nashville and around the world.
Julie is still traveling with Yancy and serving our family however she can. She helps me at church and in life with whatever she needs to, I am one blessed man to have such a helpmate. She serves our girls, and our grands so excellently!
I had the privilege Again this year to speak at several conferences, As well as got to coach some wonderful leaders, I wrote a chapter on Grandparenting Ministry for a new book from D6 called RECALIBRATE FAMILY MINISTRY and also got to write for several blogs and speak on a bunch of podcasts.
Thanks again for stopping by to catch up with us and reading about God’s goodness to our family. We love you all and pray God’s blessings on you and your family and hope our paths cross in 2020. I believe this is going to be a breakthrough year for all of us. I know it’s been said before but I believe it with all my heart, “the best is yet to come!”
Our wish for you is that you and your family have the Merriest Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year!
May the love and peace of Jesus be yours!
Jim & Julie
