The past year was pretty quiet on Dan Scott’s Blog. 2012 was quite a blur of transition into Southern living for my family in Georgia. We’re thankful to have our first full year under our belts. It’s been quite a ride, and we’re still not quite settled yet. But with each moment and new memory we create, Georgia is beginning to feel a little bit more like home.
Here are just a few highlights of 2012:
Making a House a Home | We painted… yes, we painted some of it Orange!
Orange Conference | After attending every year since the Orange Conference began, I had a blast working it from the other side. One incredible event!
Albania | I had the opportunity of traveling to Albania to train church leaders how to use 252 Basics. Absolutely amazing to see how the Orange Strategy translates in a completely different culture. God is using the Albanian church in amazing ways!
Summer Fun | We took the kids and headed out for a summer on the road. Between Camp Kid Jam and fun with family, it was definitely a summer to remember!
New School for the Kids
| The kids started a brand new school and absolutely LOVE IT! Also, Jenna
is the VP of Communications on the PTA board. We’ve been busy bringing the world of social media to Kelly Mill Elementary. She’s a rock star!
Volunteering in UpStreet
| I began hosting and storytelling with UpStreet at our church, Browns Bridge Community Church
. It’s been fun to say the least.
New Role with 252 Basics
| This fall also marked a new transition in my role with 252 Basics at ReThink
. I’m now the Director of Children’s Ministry Strategy, which among other responsibilities includes leading the 252 Basics team in creating Orange elementary curriculum. It’s been the hardest job I’ve ever done, but thankfully I’m not alone. I have an amazing team of creative storytellers, insightful children’s ministry leaders, and CRAZY organized editors and project managers who lead with me.
Fall Family Fun | We took full advantage of Georgia’s beautiful fall weather. We hung out on top of mountains and hiked all over North Georgia. This is quite a state!
Christmas in New York and New Jersey | We ended the year with yet another road trip to New Jersey to be with family for Christmas. And of course, we just had to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center!
This was a good year, and I have nothing but great expectations for the year ahead!
