3 Things I Plan To Do Now That Seminary Is Over!

graduationWell, this past weekend was a milestone in my life. I graduated with my M.Div degree in Pastoral Studies over the weekend.

I never thought that I would get a degree beyond a four-year degree, but with a bit of encouragement from some close friends, I started the process five years ago, and now am DONE!

As I returned home, I was reminded about several things that I said that I would do when I was done with seminary. Yikes. I (seriously) am going to hold myself to those promises??

I have put these things off, and now that I am done with seminary, there is really no excuse. So I plan to follow through on these three commitments now that seminary is over:

1. Blog

If you are a subscriber to this blog, you probably have noticed that I have not been sending out content near to the degree (pun intended) that I used to. I used to blow multiple times per week.

It is because I have been deep into seminary trying to finish, and I have struggled to find as much time cranking out blog posts that are quality and helpful to you.

Now that seminary is done, I plan to blog at least once a week for you! Hold me to it. Shoot me an email or leave me a comment if I slack on producing helpful content to you and your team 🙂

2. Exercise

I also have used seminary as an excuse to not exercise. Well, seminary is done so no more excuses.

I started exercising recently, and I plan to stick with it.

3. Read

I used to do book reviews on my blog regularly. Well, since seminary consumed my reading, I did not read near as many books as I would have liked.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I read books, but I am unsure you would like for me to review my apologetics or theology books over the last several years.

I plan to start doing some more reading on leadership, personal growth, and church life. So be looking for a review soon.

I look forward to building that connection with you again. If you have a question or topic that you would like for me to write about, comment below and I will write about that soon.
