I hope that your New Year is off to a great start. My 2015 has started nicely and I have many exciting things to look forward to this year. I’ve already been accepted to speak at two different autism conferences, one in Nebraska and one in Maine. In October, I will be headed back to Northern Ireland to speak at an event hosted by Autism NI, the great group that I met with last year when I traveled to Europe.
This month, I am proud to say that I have written an article for Fargo Monthly magazine, sharing my story about life on the autism spectrum. You can read the article by visiting Fargo Monthly online.
Also, I recently began a new job. Aside from my work at Specialisterne, as of November 2014, I am the new campus pastor for my church. In that role, I help the students at North Dakota State University with their faith walk and spiritual growth. I also help lead service projects with the students and focus on outreach to the campus community, through my church. I’m very happy with my new role and am excited to help students and other members of the university community grow in their faith.
In the church role and my many other roles, I’m excited to see what God has planned for me for the year ahead.
Currently, it is 0 degrees in Fargo with a windchill of -14. Overnight, it’s going to get to -18, with windchill values around -30 to -50. So yes, it’s cold.
I’m going to go make a cup of hot chocolate now.
Until next time…
