Six-Word Saturday #82

Great first week at new job!

This past Monday, I started my position as a part-time church administrative assistant. One of the perks is that I’m receiving on-the-job-training. The former assistant will be there about ten hours per week for the rest of the month. She’ll also be available to answer questions in the year ahead about projects I might not encounter in December.

So far, I’ve answered phone calls, sorted through mail, prepared meeting reminders, and reserved rooms. I’ve also edited and printed various publications such as bulletins, posters, and newsletters. There were a few projects for which I compiled handouts. During the week, I got familiar with the office layout, took lots of notes, and browsed some manuals. I’ve also met several church members.

Another perk is that the work ebbs and flows. It’s pretty busy on Monday, because the church office is closed over the weekend. By mid-week, everything wound down, and I had time to experiment with software and with publication design. It got hectic again on Thursday, with lots of calls and visitors. I like the variety.

That’s my week! How about yours?

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:

  • Joni: The unforgettable story of a young woman’s struggle against quadriplegia & depression by Joni Eareckson
  • The True Story of the World’s Most Beloved Animal Sanctuary by Samantha Glen
  • Brothers in hope : the story of the Lost Boys of Sudan–refugees by Mary Williams
  • The Inner Life of Cats by Thomas McNamee
