As the end of each year approaches, we of the blog team gather in a huddle to see who needs to move on to other endeavors. We don't force anyone out, but we acknowledge the changing seasons of life in our team members. In fact, we do this in the middle of the year, too (or any time a member has Life Happen).
And so, we will be saying goodbye to five members of the team: Liz Adair (as she has already announced), Faith St. Clair, Rebecca Talley, Margaret Turley, and Rene Allen. I thank them for all the words, feelings, and insights they've shared during their time with us.
New team members joining us for 2009 are Shawnette Nielson, Sarah Albrecht, Cindy R. Williams, Marielle Carlisle and Stacy Johnson.
I'm looking forward to a 2009 full of blessings and outstanding blog posts. I'm sure our new team members are excited by this opportunity, as well and I hope you will enjoy their posts.
