I suck at blogging...nonetheless

Five months ago I started another series. Yeah, five months ago. All 8 of you that probably read this blog already know what's going on in our lives, but I'll give an update anyway, along with a reason why I might, just might, start keeping this thing updated.

I resigned from my youth pastor position at the end of June, and joined the staff of YouthFront, a youth ministry, church-assisting organization in Kansas City. I am now funded 100% by support, so that has meant a busy summer and fall of meeting with people almost daily and inviting them to partner with us in ministry. Never thought I would do this in ministry, but its actually pretty fun to share our story with others. Maybe I'll post on the theology of support-raising sometime. Anyway, in the midst of raising support, almost a month ago now, Amy and I had our second child, Svea Joy Leafblad on September 24. She's beautiful and Soren loves her. Hence the picture above.

Amy and I are moving to KC in November, and can't wait to get started with the daily routine of ministry at YouthFront. This is a reason why I think I might start posting more often. We have committed to keep our supporters updated by a newsletter every other month, but I'm thinking it'll be good to post some thoughts from ministry on here for supporters, and others, to interact with. Part of my role is to be in conversation with various youth pastors and youth workers, so I'll be thinking a lot about ministry and theology, so this might be a good outlet. But, then again, I've said that before, right?

If nothing else, visit me later this week as Zondervan Press kindly sent me a review copy of Scot McKnight's soon-to-be-released book The Blue Parakeet so I'll be posting a review of that shortly. So maybe this blog lives. Maybe.

good to hear from you and see your beautiful children.

Great to hear about God's faithfulness in providing. PS we never got a news letter.

Josh --

Does that mean you got the package from us? There wasn't a "Leafblad Family" newsletter thing in it?

If not, we'll send you one for sure.
