Each weekday, I arrive at the offices of Ignite. Most mornings I am the first to arrive. I treasure this as it allows me to begin this part of the day quietly. Normally, I have got up around 6.30am ensured the kids get to the school bus, done some chores and checked my emails and spent some time with God before I leave the house. This means that in the silence of the first 30 minutes or so I can reflect on the previous day, plan the current day. Catch up on some prayer requests...you know the ones where people say "can you just pray for.......". Inevitably I say yes but sometimes, I forget! So this is the time to remember. I may read the word of God and ask Him what he wants to speak into my life. More likely at this time of the day I will ask Him what HE wants me to share with the team. I also use this time to read books on Leadership, ministry and journals that will develop me professionally.
