Settling In

New-Year-on-the-Mountain

How’s everyone settling in to their new year? Are you staying the path of your goals? Is one of them to create margin in your life? Is this the year you’ll make it to Whisper Mountain?

We hope so! We are in planning/preparing mode right now at Whisper Mountain! We have special days to celebrate together, special events to gather together and seasons of growing and learning together! WE ARE EXCITED FOR 2016!

As we finalize our schedule, we wanted to reconnect and say hello! And to let you know we are publishing a 2016 Calendar of Events soon — as in days! So be looking for it so you can plan to join us throughout the year for some fun, encouragement and refreshment!

We look forward to connecting with you throughout this year!

January has already brought some hiccups, frustrations and stress, but strewn throughout all of that are the moments of delight, togetherness, and purposeful living. Whisper Mountain is in full gear prepping for our summer program, expanding and improving our facilities, and filling the calendar with many people coming to escape their noise and encounter God's whisper! We are thrilled!

Have you planned a getaway to Whisper Mountain yet? Now's a great time to gather some people and make some plans! We would delight in serving you!

Bend Ahead

Road The title above reminds me of the response the road sign "Stop Ahead" always gave my brother when we were growing up.

Stop ahead

We'd be riding along in the car, he'd see the sign, then reach forward from the backseat of the car and grab my mom's head.  At her startled freaking out he would say, "The sign said to stop a head!"  Of course he thought he was hilarious!  (And he was, but I'm not sure Mom thought so!)

There's no bending a head today!  But there is a bend in the road!  At Whisper Mountain we are coming out of the breathe-easier days of late fall and early winter and are heading into the yikes-spring-and-summer-are-coming-there's-so-much-to-do days!

With the schedules beginning again today, I find I am beginning with a fresh perspective & motivation. The energy is just surging through my mind and body (having trouble shutting the mind off at night!)! Christmas decorations are cleared out, furniture is rearranged , some major messes have disappeared(finally!)… I'm in this serious nesting mood! You'd think I was pregnant or something (quick clarification…I'm not!).

I'm excited to be in 2010 (do we say this twenty ten or two thousand ten…I'm still not sure!). I'm excited about the work that is ahead of us.  I'm excited as I anticipate what God is going to do in and through my life, my family and this camp! By George, I'm just feeling so….excited!

As we take this bend in the road, I'm thankful and glad you are walking this trail with us (in a blogosphere type of way!)  Sharing the journey is much better than walking it alone!
