Hi friends! Cait (& Jess) here just poppin' in to share a little Munson fam life update:
Earlier this year, Jess began leading again with a high school ministry called Young Life. If you know Jess, you know that for a long time, he has desired to make ministry, specifically through the organization of Young Life, his full time job. After putting our heads together (& lots of prayer and heart change), tomorrow my lovie begins his first day with Young Life in Central Pennsylvania.
As for me, I am no longer working night shift (all the praise hands), and accepted a weekend day shift position on my unit (I call it my little life boat). While working every weekend is unconventional, I'm grateful for sleep filled nights and daytime living again. It is such a gift I took for granted. This position has also freed me up to start NP school at the end of August.
We are excited for how God is leading us; we are so glad to share our news and would love to share more about the process of getting here, moving forward from here, and how you can pray with us and for us!
Generally, I'm extremely private. I do what I need to do to live my life, and let you live yours. But I've had to explain my life so much lately, I thought I'd give an update on a few different areas.
1. For those keeping up on my health updates. I have been, for the last 4 years or so, battling some chronic infections that all got flared at the same time. This has caused both extreme adrenal fatigue as well as a new autoimmune disorder called undifferentiated connective tissue disease. It seems I generally flip between the symptoms of fatigue and exhaustion from the infections, or pain from the connective tissue disease. Lately, fatigue has been less and pain has been higher. Which is great. I'll choose pain over fatigue any day.
2. Nonprofit. It's that time of year again, where I'm trying to find connections for our nonprofit YES! Kindness Works. Our annual fundraiser is August 10th (save the date). We fund a school in India to keep children educated and out of child slavery and girls out of the sex trade. Please please please reach out if you would like more information on how to attend or how to get involved. We are looking for companies to donate to our silent auction in August. If you have any suggestions, please comment or send me a message.
3. For everyone asking how Jeff and I are doing, it's really great. He has been amazing during my health journey, and I owe a lot of my calmness and understanding around everything to him.
4. Private coaching. I am no longer taking private anxiety coaching clients. With all of my health issues, I have decided to focus my energy on myself (which is insanely hard for me to do). Anything extra I'm pouring into the nonprofit. I apologize for everyone who has been on a wait list. Please understand that I want to coach you all with everything I can give, but I just need to prioritize my health at the moment. As always, if you ever have any questions, or need help through anything, PLEASE know that you can always reach out.
It's so hard for me to give updates that show any struggles I'm currently going through. I've decided my goal for April is being vulnerable. So you might be hearing more from me soon. ✌❤🌲Jess
