Making the most out of extended weekends

Ministers don’t have a lot of extended weekends. That is why when you do, you have to enjoy them.

Watch this short video to find out 3 things you can do on your next extended weekend so that you don’t waste it but use it for YOU and YOUR FAMILY wisely.


What can you do when you have an extended weekend?

  1. Chill Out! Turn your computer off, don’t answer your phone and just relax.  Enjoy time with your friends and your family. Trust me, work can be put off one day…especially when the office is closed!
  2. Follow up on things at home. There are times when ministry takes priority over what happens at home.  So, when you have those extended time off, you need to catch up at home.  Not catch up on work, but catch up on housework.
  3. Do stuff you love! Whatever it is that you love to do but never have enough “time” to do it…do it and enjoy it! Don’t feel bad about it…just do it! Again, work is with you constantly and you can always be doing something. But on these extended weekends do something that you love to do. You won’t regret it.
