7am-9am The Usual Morning Routine
9am Holy Hour
10am Team Meeting
This is a tactical team meeting. Father and Tara (the staff associate) join us for a bit of the meeting to go over dates of upcoming events and anything else they want to discuss. Then, we continue the meeting for another hour or so. We discuss things like or upcoming Senior Night, Student Missionary Events, Student Leadership Summit, Interview Weekends, and whatever else needs discussing/planning! I like this meeting because I like details and we do details in this meeting!
11:30am Run Home and Get Ready and Eat Lunch
I ran back home to get things in order for the rest of the day. I had to get ready for a couple dsicipleships and things like that.
1:15pm Leave for Teaberry* for D-ship with Carole
Carole is one of my 5 disciples. She’s totally legit and totally fun (she loves pink. sparkles. baking. soccer.) She’s plays soccer at a college just across the border (in Minnesota) and is going to start a Bible study with her soccer team. I’m so excited for her to start this! We went through the first chapter of a Bible study written by Varsity Catholic and made specifically for athletes! She’s excited to go through it with her brand new Bibles study!
2:45pm Back to Campus and jettin’ to the Union
I hopped in my car and drove back to my house. I then grabbed what I needed and went to the union.
I had 15 minutes until my next discipleship so I started reading the first chapter, on 3 kinds of friendship, in Men, Women and the Mystery of Love.
3:15pm D-ship with Brookelle
Brookelle is a senior. She’s great. Just applied to Vet School. I’m sure she’d appreciate any prayers you could spare for her applications and upcoming interviews! We talked and got to know each other a bit (this was only the second time we’ve been able to meet). Then, I lead her through Lectio Divina. Next week, she’s leading me through Lectio.
4:30pm Drop stuff at home and drive to Panera**
I had supper with a girl in my “down-chain”, Jenny. I mentioned her in a past post–she’s the one who called me “grandma” (because she’s my disciple’s disciple…aka, my granddaughter disciple). Jenny and I had a great conversation and lovely dinner. I also invited her into our newly beginning Intercessory Prayer Team!*** She was delighted at the invitation and I’m so excited she’s on board!
6:00pm Look at Pictures of Monica
Monica is the niece and goddaughter of Zoe, a senior here (who, I should add, I think is totally great!). She showed Kelsey and me pictures of sweet Monica for a while. She was cute enough to get her own section on the what-do-I-do-everyday post!
6:15pm Read! For real this time!
Kelsey and I lead a Tuesday night book study and we’re reading Men, Women and the Mystery of Love. I wasn’t reading the book for fun earlier–I had a chapter to read before our book study that began in just over an hour! It was poor planning on my part. It’s always my goal to be finished preparing for any book/Bible studies by the day before I have them! Fail this time–wasn’t the first, won’t be the last (just wait until Wednesday’s post). But, next week I’ll schedule in reading-time for Monday!
7:30pm Book Study
Every week 15-25 women come over for our book study. We had a great discussion on the three different kinds of friendships. You should check out Men, Women and the Mystery of Love for a great read! Eye opening and enjoyable!
Mass was followed by chit-chatting with people in the vestibule for a while. Then, I went home. Tuesday nights are Kelsey and my we’re-really-not-tired-so-let’s-chat-for-far-too-long nights. It’s a problem. You’ll understand why when you read about Worthless Wednesday’s! 🙂
*Teaberry is a cute little tea/smoothie place downtown Fargo. It’s cute. I like it–even though I’m not a big fan of tea.
**Panera Bread Co. just opened on Monday over by the mall. Everybody’s obsessed.
***We’re working on starting an Intercessory Prayer Team here on campus. It will be made up of about 8 of us and we’ll meet weekly to pray together and we’ll fast together as well. We will specifically intercede for the needs of the campus! I’m so excited for this!
