"Family First" Friday's

But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. ~ Joshua 24:15

Welcome to a BRAND NEW weekly adventure here in Mel's World! There are three things that are so very important to me and are the central theme of everything in Mel's World and that's Faith, Family, and Friends (in that order).

I'm so excited to start a new journey with each and every one of you with the new series called "Family First" Friday's. Each Friday we'll meet here in Mel's World and talk about some steps and strategies to keep first things first, and in this case, that's your family!

Being in ministry for over 8 years now there are lots of things that I have witnessed with my own eyes and in my very own life. I've been the one in pursuit over the years to be "Patty perfect Pastor's Wife" (which I have failed miserably at); I've been a workaholic, a perfectionist, and totally controlled by what everyone else wanted me to do instead of what God called me to do first, and that was to take care of my family.

After nearly loosing my son in 2005 during a 51 day stay in the PICU I have learned that no matter how fantastic your ministry is if you don't take care of your family it really isn't worth anything. From mega-church to a small church plant God has taken me on a journey of growth and I can't wait to share with you some of those insights every week here in "Family First" Friday's.

Buckle up, open your hearts, and get ready to join me each week as we learn to put our "Family First" and still seek to be all that God has created us to be!

Seeking JOY on the Journey,
