My schedule for the last few weeks has kept me from jumping into, THE SHARE YOUR WORLD CHALLENGE. Our lead pastor at Cornerstone Church (my boss) left four weeks ago ,and for the last month I have been working through the decision and process of transitioning into his role. This week the deacon board voted to advance my name to the congregation and so the last step of the process has begun! There are a few more steps to take, but before I go back to addressing them, I wanted to take a few moments to answer the questions this weekly challenge brings.
My answers are below. When you have finished reading here, please click the underlined link above and travel to Melanie’s site to see how her other contributors have answered her questions.

I am pretty sure I have never swallowed a spider but I have swallowed mosquitoes.
