Strength

From July 10-23rd, I spent my last two weeks as a camper at my camp, Camp Cho-Yeh. It was very bittersweet, to say the least. But, for a week in between, I took part in a program called Christian Leadership Training (CLT). I chose to go on the river trip and I spent four days … More Strength

Do Not Fear

A week ago today, I went on a trip called CIY (Christ in Youth) for the third time. Every year  I have attended, my faith is deeply impacted along with my life. I assumed that this summer I would learn more about my calling as I have for the past two summers and that would … More Do Not Fear

A Tough Place

One of my biggest struggles in day to day life is being overwhelmed. I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but I am so involved in so many different things that events and dates and times and assignments start to pile up so high that I don’t see a way out. I get frustrated, I … More A Tough Place

Lent Week 1

This year for Lent, I have decided to write out my prayers for the day. A lot of the things I have written are things I struggled with that day, things I know I’ll struggle with, and a lot of thanks. (FYI: I start each week on a Wednesday and they end on the following … More Lent Week 1

Tetelestai

This past weekend, I attended an amazing retreat at my church. One of my absolute favorite things about retreats is the amount of bliss and peacefulness and sheer joy you can experience, knowing that in a few hours you can worship your heart out with a bunch of other kids or sit and listen to … More Tetelestai
