Summer has arrived and is in full swing. The beaches are crowded, the malls are jam-packed, and every night is like a sleepover. I remember those months as a school-aged girl well. You count down those minutes as the time drags by slower than water boils. Finally the clock signals the school bell and you run out of the double doors rejoicing and searching for the nearest ice cream store.

I am far removed from high school, but working in a school for a period of time had me reliving all those memories. This year has been especially hard for high schoolers. Perhaps you have been part of a terrifying lockdown that was only a drill, but in the moment you had no idea what was going on.

22nd January

Anyone and everyone who attended North American Youth Congress 2015 can tell you it was a game changer. There was an unprecedented move of God that affected everyone in some way, shape, or form, whether directly or indirectly.

16th May

School has come and gone. The hype of ending the semester and graduation has finally come to a halt, and here I am with everything planned out and lined up for the next few years. Right? Wrong.

Like most of you, I am here at a crossroads; a time of transition; a point of change. To be completely open, I am in a weird spot. I am moving from a place full of growth and discovery to a very familiar place called home, where I will not necessarily fit in the same as I did before. This is a weird spot—not bad—just peculiar. I have only come to this place by growth and change. As much as I anticipated and planned for the journey of college, there has not been nearly as much planning and “readiness” for life after college … Read More »
