Hard things come in life. This week I have been continuously reminded of my past. Four pretty major things poppped up and tried to scare me. My past sin by satan and my past joy and growth by God. There were several things that happened that could have easily taken me down. Continue reading “God’s Sense of Humor (Camp Devo’s #4)”
Living in a Christian community like a camp can be difficult. With Jesus as our savior, it really shouldn’t be. However, sin all too often gets in the way. I have been blessed with an amazing group of believers. Here are some ways to make sure we are working together and not hindering each other while serving the Lord together. This list is almost more for me than for you, but I thought I would share!
I went to bed the other night and was listening to an Adventures In Odyssey (I know, I know, way for me to adult). The episode was about Ruth. In the middle of it, this thought came to me. I shot off of the couch I was sleeping on and grabbed my pen and notebook laying on the coffee table next to me. I started scribbling as fast as I could. I could not see what I was writing, but the thoughts were so solid in my mind! God truly laid this message on my heart.
As some of you know, I am working at a Christian camp on an island this summer. I wanted to share my devotions from this morning with you. They were amazing.
Another one was gone. My family fosters children. We don’t necessarily do it to adopt. But to be the in between home. The home that children, when taken from horrible situations came to recover, learn about Jesus, and be loved. Continue reading “Another Child Gone (Foster Care)”
Well, number one, I want to encourage all of you and tell you what I have learned. But secondly, I want to be able to look back on this post and see all that God was currently teaching me. Because it is a lot. And it is not comfortable.

I’m waiting for the crowds,
The goal was to evangelize;
Spread the Gospel aloud,
But only to quickly realize…
I’m afraid; I cannot speak
What am I supposed to say and do?
It’ll come out like a squeak.
Looks like my attempt is through…
The streets are filled, but I’m ignored,
Terrified; I can’t do this alone!
What do I do, My Lord, I implore!
“Child, you aren’t on your own…”
Once I sat on the bench, dejected;
Now I’m no longer filled with fear!
I declare His Word – but they’re rejected,
Pearls before swine – I move on from here.

Everything in my life is currently changing. I graduate high school in a few days. Although it is a day I am and have been looking forward to for years, I am nervous beyond belief. Along with all the excitement comes deadlines and change.
Mom. ❤ Such a simple word with such a huge meaning.
You are the life that I came from.
