adminGood morning! My name is Gordon Michael Moore and I'm beyond excited to be sharing with you the joys I receive each day here with Adore. For starters, I only mentioned my middle name because I do go by both Gordon and Michael pretty regularly. I am from Atlanta, Ga and graduated from Georgia State University with a major in business marketing and minor in art. My mission with Adore is stationed in the Fifth Ward/Denver Harbor district through @adore_resurrection church. I work alongside @bmunaybarraza, @hawkward_life, and intern @annie.ledezma. The small family we've created within three weeks alone has been incredible. The kids I get to work with are such a grace and blessing and I can't wait to share what we do. Other random things: I love art and view everything as an art because God is such an amazing artist, I don't like cheesecake (*que gasp), I love good coffee and great beer, music & playing instruments, reading & writing are huge stress relievers, I know a few magic tricks, sarcasm is my first language, I watch any movie that won something at a film festival, and most of all I enjoy the community, friendships, and conversations that come from all of that. God bless and stay tuned. #lifeofjoy

adminY'all. This group of kids is so dang fun. So dang wonderful. So dang hilarious. So dang welcoming. I'm so dang thrilled to be spending the rest of my summer with these kids. Today, in the blazing sun, we played tug of war, threw countless water balloons at each other, and got wet on the slip and slide. These kids are truly living a #lifeofjoy!
adminThis Wednesday we had our first girls group. We went to a teahouse and coffee shop to get to know each other. This next Wednesday we will start a book study, as we read I Choose the Sky by Emily Wilson together. Please pray for us as we share our #lifeofjoy!
adminToday I played charades with the Mercer kids and took them to the pool and Mickey D's for ice cream (which ended up everywhere except their mouths). Then we came back home and hung out with some of the other interns. My #lifeofjoy includes letting adorable children make a bird's nest of my hair.
adminTonight at Family Dinner at the Hickmans we celebrated @annie.ledezma and @erikadonatto birthdays! What better way to celebrate than with this wonderful community on a beautiful Houston summer night?
