From Mary Koppel

Dear Friends,
Lately, I have been looking through my past posts on Dirty Sexy Ministry. I can tell you where I wrote each of my entries and even what inspired them that particular day. I find myself grimacing at my early writing, smiling or giggling at some topics, and even tearing up when I remember why I wrote what I did.
What I thought was a humorous escape at first became so much more to me. Writing Dirty Sexy Ministry helped me develop as a writer, explore my Christian faith deeply, ask myself the hard questions, and heal from painful times in my life and ministry. Dirty Sexy Ministry also exposed me to a new community of people who also earnestly did the same with their faith journeys. I am so thankful.
You might have noticed that I have not posted for months. During this time, I have transitioned into a new faith community and witnessed my daughter growing into a delightful little person. During this season in my life, I have decided to step back from Dirty Sexy Ministry. I will continue writing through 50days.org and other opportunities, and I look forward to being a guest contributor to Dirty Sexy Ministry at some time in the future.  
I have loved contributing to the blog. I have loved sharing my thoughts and ideas and hearing from all of you! Most importantly, I have loved writing with my dear friend Laurie. I am so glad we collaborated for many years on Dirty Sexy Ministry. Thank you so much for reading what I wrote and the support I have felt through the years.
May God bless you and keep reading Dirty Sexy Ministry!
Love,
Mary Koppel
