Retreats are Tiring....for the leaders.

We were part of a team that took about a 100 University students on a ski retreat recently.  We packed out a church, sleeping on floors and pews, and had a grand ol' time.  Over the coarse of the weekend, we estimated that our kitchen/food crew slept a total of 9 hours over the course of 3 days as they bought food for 100+ people and cooked and cleaned like Kitchen Champions. 


Heidi led that Kitchen team of superstars with Elizabeth and Josiah in tow.


6 short life reflections that being on the kitchen team taught us:
  1. If you want to serve people, expect to get tired.
  2. The people you serve will rarely grasp how much effort it took care for them....but they shouldn't need to.  It was never about that to begin with.
  3. Teamwork is quintessential for accomplishing anything notable.
  4. In many cases, your kids don't have to keep you at home.  Make your activity fun for them and it'll turn into their adventure too.
  5. Serving others will expose your own sin....especially your selfishness.
  6. Make service your priority and your mission, and you'll find your heart will joyfully follow soon thereafter.
