The Order Of Life

The Order Of Life

When revenge, jealousy and personal gain are at the top of the list of life's priorities disorder will never cease and direction can't be found. “All who indulge in a sinful life are dangerously lawless, for sin is a major disruption of God’s order. Surely you know that Christ showed up in order to get rid of sin. There is no sin in him, and sin is not part of his program. No one who lives deeply in Christ makes a practice of sin. None of those who do practice sin have taken a good look at Christ. They’ve got him all backward.” ‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:4-6‬ ‭MSG‬‬ https://www.bible.com/97/1jn.3.4-6.msg I must keep perspective of God's order in my life and the lives of those around me.

Work and Family Experience: Stonebriar Community Church

2012-2017  I worked at Stonebriar Community Church full-time from 2012 to 2017 in the resource and support areas as Webmaster and Director of Web Services.  We established and began growing a social media strategy and presence for the organization. Also, we formed and implemented a plan to redesign and develop organization websites. Resource and support staff departments were excellent under leadership of the Senior Director and Business Administrator. Family and personal experiences were great during this time. During 2012 to 2017 there was little down side to the job or work environment in the resource and support staff areas. It was a very unified team - not without challenges, but collaborating together through it all.

Also, our special needs son found a place to establish meaningful connections - it was such a relief to find this level of support and care as special needs parents. Pastor Chuck Swindoll and...
