I probably wouldn’t have made it without this one.
This is Jessica. She is a coworker of mine, soft-spoken and sweet. One day we were working and I started talking about this trip I was going to take in summer of 2013 to the Camino de Santiago.
“Here,” I said, “I’ll forward you my group information so you know what I’m talking about.”
A few days later she approached me softly and said, “I think I want to go on that trip.”
I was shocked but excited. Over the next few months we compared buys and I made her hear me out on all of my issues. We developed a character–Jennifer–who would deliver hard news for us. If anything tough needed to be said, we would “channel our inner Jennifer.” This and Jess’s encouragement helped me be a better group leader.
Pray for Jessica today, that she would know her faith family and feel love, peace, and joy in her heart.
