Personal Life Update:
Let’s save the ministry update for later, and focus on the most recent (and exciting) news:
Introducing Mark Henry Norton, born at 7:03 AM on Tuesday, April 12th; weighing 7lbs 14oz and 20 1/4″ in length.
We just arrived home from he hospital this afternoon. Mom and baby are doing excellent. Both are happy and healthy.
After only knowing him for 3 days, Mark seems to be a calm, inquisitive boy. When he’s not sleeping or feeding, he seems to enjoy looking around for colours and listening for sounds; his eyes always seem to be scanning the room. (Quite a change from our first 2 boys.)
This addition of a third son will be quite an adjustment for our family. In a world predominantly designed for families of 4, we have taken the next step in this adventure called family.
Thankfully, I was able to take a week off from ministry with the church to focus on my ministry to my family.
And speaking of ministry…
I experienced another change that will be an adjustment for our family. At the end of March, I transitioned from the Associate Pastor of Whitehorse Baptist Church to the Lead Pastor. This was an incredible blessing, but also a significant responsibility.
That being said, I can’t let it change my relationship with Nicole, nor my boys. I need to make sure I daily show the difference between of leading a church and leading a home.
With a new job and a new son, I have a lot to reflect on. This has already been and will continue to be a prayer-filled week off.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support for my family and my ministry.
