Lesson 17

1.  I am only accountable to God, in my ministry and personnal life.
2.  I don't have  a mentor, but would love to have one.
3.  My plan would be to visit other church's in the area and get an idea on thier belief system and maybe find the right mentor.

Lesson 16

I don't really see anyone as a soul-friend at this time. I know I need to visit more at service's, I am more of a one on one type person and not comfortable in bigger crowds.
Outside of the ministry I do have a good friend although our beliefs differ from each other we keep each other in check with respect and honesty.
This doesn't mean that someday I will not find a soul-friend through prayer and patience I believe all things are possible

Lesson 15

I think a simple place outside the church building in the court yard would be my place to  hold worship.
I have a garden spot I use for weddings I can convert for meetings simply by re arranging a few items.
I can use the speakers and computer for music.
I would play the music, than ask for prayer requests after the closing prayer, we can congregate and visit with each other.

Lesson 13

Traps
1.Self Awareness- Growing up as a girl scout, I always plan ahead, I like no surprise's but when they happen I am prepared.
2.  Respect   the sex-  I have a good strong marriage it took many years to get to this place, with my experience's and age I feel I can handle this feat well.
3.  Money-  I only except donations which always goes back into my ministry.
4.  Compassion Fatigue - I believe in taking care of my body, spirit and mind. This is always my first consideration.
5.  Pride- This is a downfall for me and I have to work on it a lot by not over judging or reacting to fast it is a daily shore.
