Several years ago I had the joy of being our church’s first receptionist. Prior to me taking the position, we didn’t have one particular person answering the phones or greeting people who came through the front door. However, as our church grew, the need to delegate some responsibilities (I’ll call them blessings) also grew. 

I soon discovered that this position provided an opportunity to meet many new people, both to me and to the church. It also gave me an opportunity to serve in a way that seemed to suit my personality. I am cheerful by nature, and I’ve been told that I have a “good phone voice” (I’ve always been a bit amused by that!) So, as I dove into this new area of service, I was filled with joy by being able to use a gift that seemed to come so easily to me...

Secure in Him,



  1. Thanks for linking up at InstaEncouragements Jo. I'm headed over to read the rest of this! :)

  2. It's amazing how something so seemingly small (a 3-word phrase spoken as lighthearted encouragement) could so dramatically transform your perspective and sense of responsibility. I like the creative take on "church receptionist", but I especially love your enthusiasm for shining your light wherever you go. Thank you for sharing this delightful inspiration. You've instilled excitement in my heart for the day ahead - how can I shine brightly today?

    1. Thank you, Jana! Yes, it is amazing...But God works in amazing ways, doesn't He? Thanks for dropping by. I'm so glad you were encouraged! Blessings, Jo
