Is it summer already? When did spring end and summer begin? Last month it was still cold, and rainy, now we’ve hit the 80 degree temps with the awful side of summer storms! How can it already be mid-June? I have so much to do and so little time! Thankfully I am organized enough to … [Read more…]

crazy few days…

I am back from New Orleans! It’s a good feeling and a sad feeling. My anxiety disappeared after a few days down there. I could see improvement and HOPE. There is still ALOT of work to be done, but the city is slowly getting back on its feet. More of the trip later… When I … [Read more…]


I am feeling anxious. Do you ever feel that way? That’s a silly question, I am sure you do. Even so, it’s an uneasy feeling. What am I anxious about? Well, I am not exactly sure, it could be several things, but overall I just feel uneasy. I wish this feeling would go away. I … [Read more…]

Prince Caspian

So…I just went and saw Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, for the 2nd time a few nights ago. Although I haven’t read the book, knowing about the Christian undertones made it that much more meaningful. I hear it was watered down and hollywoodized, but still the message came through pretty clearly. I hope that those … [Read more…]

So, in my previous post I mentioned the shock and disappointment in what happened to our student ministry this week. However…in just a matter of days, everything turned around for the better! Last night and this morning we held our GSM excursion and it was a blast! We had fun, talked about identity in Christ … [Read more…]


Our student ministry had been planning for this big spring retreat coming up this weekend. We just found out yesterday we won’t be having it because the lack of numbers from both ours and another church. It’s so frustrating. Youth Ministry is a mystery to me, sometimes. It’s specifically why that’s not my main/only focus…because … [Read more…]

the raven

The last three stanzas from “The Raven”: “Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil – prophet still, if bird or devil!By that Heaven that bends above us – by that God we both adore -Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore -Clasp … [Read more…]

one year (cont)

I am in awe of how much my life has changed in just one year. God does amazing things and I feel as if I have grown so much! I know I still have many years of growing and many experiences, and challenges, but I feel that the change that has occurred has been for … [Read more…]
