A Step of Faith Is Now A LEAP!

It was a little over a year ago that I announced on my blog that I was stepping out to officially launch LEAD Women. ( If you’re curious about that, you can read that post here). And with the pilot season and now a…

Living a Spiritual Life in the Midst of the Daily Hustle

If you’re like me – a result-oriented person and lover of ticking off that task that’s been scheduled in my bullet journal – then you’re likely to understand this tension. It’s the tension of there is lots to do today AND I need to…

What Jesus Gives You Cannot Be Taken Away

For a couple of weeks now the album Blackout by Steffany Gretzinger has been playing on repeat. It’s been one of those in season albums for me as every song on this album has had some sort of meaning and ministered to me. And…

She Became Reverend Carmen Kampman

It’s been two weeks since my ordination to Christian Ministry in the PAOC; since I went from becoming a licensed minister to a Reverend. It’s still surreal, but I know things have shifted deep in my own soul and for others. For example, just…

Why Good Governance is Essential and Why Who You Choose as a Chair Matters

In previous posts, I have discussed the role of a chair, why policy matters, and other types of questions. Today I want to specifically tackle two things because they are burning in my heart and I need a constructive outlet. Why Good Governance is…

Board Series: Board Size, Why Policy?, and Other Questions

Good morning (or afternoon or evening, depending on where you are)! In the wake of several conversations that, in one way or another, had to do with board governance, I’m writing this blog post to address some of the great questions I have recently…
