Would you like to hear an Epic Tale? No I’m not talking about a fantastical story of fiction. I’m talking about a blog post inspired by something I learned or experienced at my church, Epic.
This weekend I spent some quality time with one of my nieces. She asked me did I go to church. It felt really good to be able to tell her yes and explain that I go to Epic. I have not been a church gooer since childhood until visiting Epic last fall. Since then I’ve become a regular attendee. I’ve written about my church experience a few times before. From now on I will refer to life lessons picked up from church as Epic Tails. Cute right?
The last four weeks at church have covered a series called choices. The idea is that we can have a happier life if we make better choices. But how do we do that? The pastors provided 4 questions that we should start asking ourselves when its time to make decisions. Before I share the four questions I have to say, what I like about them is that they are very practical. It wasn’t just pray about it, but an actual filter through whitch to pour our choices through.

Questions 2 and 3 have already been a part of my decision making process. I have learned not to ignore red flags. My decision to use a sperm donor instead of just “going out and getting pregnant” was largely based on the story I’d have to one day tell my child. Questions 1 and 4, however, need to become part of the process.
I guess I can start now. Am I being honest with myself when I say these pizza rolls I’m about to eat won’t hurt my get healthy plans?? Not really.
What do you think of the questions? How do you make important and not so important decisions?
