Stars, Sailing, and Spirit

Desert to Sand Hills

Hey Y’all These past two weeks I have been to the camps in both Arizona and Nebraska. The two camps could not have been anymore different from each other but they were both very moving and spiritual in their own way.

Hope is Action part 2

God is absolutely amazing. I posted yesterday about hope in action and then last night we had one of the most powerful worships I’ve ever been to, about just that. Be prepared for some tears from this post. We began worship by being led, with our eyes closed, to our chairs by the kids who […]

“Joe, why aren’t you eating a S’more?”

“Joe, why aren’t you eating a S’more?” Ahh, I’m glad you asked. Let’s chat. S’mores an all American camping classic. If you didn’t eat s’mores by a campfire, did you even go camping? At our summer camps, S’mores were served as a treat at least once during campfire. To some of you who aren’t familiar […]

And so it goes

So I experienced being a floating counselor once again while I was at Craig Springs. I really do think that I’m getting the hang of this free time thing where I ignore that I have free time. I am conflicted on whether or not I think that is the preferable form – when applicable. It’s […]
