I had an amazing time at camp but I am SO thankful to be home and snuggling with my sweet hubs and pup. I am also grateful for my welcome home gift which I am excited to read and am told is meant to encourage me to “stay on the couch (reading) and never leave.” love my hubby.

I am sorry for my absence (which I, again, forgot to warn you about…oops), but I was at Young Life camp with my sweet high school friends having an amazing time and not spending time on my phone (and therefore, not updating the blog…)

A week at young life camp is chock-full of things to be grateful for, so I’ll give you some highlights.
Just some of the things I am grateful for:
getting to know a cabin of high school girls I didn’t know very well,
lots and lots and lots of laughter,
tears of joy,
sweet friends realizing how precious they are,
Jesus changing hearts and lives,
incredible sunsets,
hugs,
friends being real about hard things,
beachfront & parasailing,
and being reminded of who I was created to be.

Castaway is my favorite Young Life camp and I love the way God seems to use that specific place to meet my high school friends (and me). I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing ministry.
