le job

I have to brag on my work just a little bit. Or a lot.
I love my job.
Actually, that’s not accurate. I don’t care for the actual technicality of making food and selling it any more than I care about brussel sprouts. It’s alright.
What I really love is the people I work with, the people I work for, and the purpose behind what we do together.
I get to work in an environment where there is more laughter, positivity, and fun than I experience on my time off. I get challenged every single day to be a better person and help others become better. I get to be a mentor to young people who let me into their lives and want my input. Sometimes it’s more personal fulfillment than I can handle.
I have worked for the same boss for 5 years, and I have never, ever felt that he didn’t trust me.
Most of the time, I think he trusts me too much.
The other leaders with me at work are my best friends. We care deeply about each other, and we submit to each other in all things.

I work for a company that cares more about me as a person than what I can do for them.
This makes me care more about my people than what they can do for me.

I love getting to know a person at work and helping them figure out their strengths so I can help them hone in on what they are best at doing and then let them do it and gain confidence in their abilities.

I really, really love awkward teenagers who have no idea how cool they really are; because when they start working with us, they’re about to figure it out.

It hasn’t always been like this. I’ve wanted to quit more than once for sure, but there are seasons to everything, especially work. I think I am currently in the best one yet.

I am abundantly blessed with my job.


  1. I'm so glad that the Lord has shown you some purpose in your life. I know you were asking/praying about it for a while. Love you!!
