A journey that may not have happened, but I am so glad it did. When beginning this journey, I had recently lost my job in Family Ministry (Children and Youth Ministry). I decided that to make my ministry better for the future this would be of great help and boy, did it ever. This experience was something amazing. I came in with a different situation than the others in my group yet, I never felt like I did not belong. Not only did I learn so much to help in my ministry and calling, but I also learned that with a strong faith I could overcome so many of the obstacles that came into my path, both in my professional and in my personal life. I have become a stronger person, deepened my faith, and made some wonderful friends along the way. I am so very thankful that I did not back out of this group and I will take all that I have learned from this Cohort wherever God may lead me.
