a small snippet

This is just a glimpse of what I took away from Worldview Academy....

  • Engaging the culture is more than just having intellectual conversations, it's about loving others.
  • I often assume that people aren't interested in spiritual things. But they are; and if Christians don't engage them, they will be taken captive by the world's spiritual ideas.
  • What you fear is what you will worship.
  • Courage is fear in it's proper perspective: fearing God more than men.
  • I should never accept the label "rebel," because I am always under the authority of God.
  • Truth is Truth, regardless of how one perceives it.
  • The five pillars of leadership are meekness, integrity, vision, attitude, and empowerment.
  • We do not argue anyone into the kingdom, but we are called to give a defense of our faith.
  • The gospel is a conversation, not a presentation. 
  • Jesus wasn't "nice," but He was truthful and loving.
  • I have more influence on people than I ever imagined.
  • I can turn what is common in culture into pulpits to proclaim Truth.
  • Movies are the teaching tools of our culture.
  • God did not invent relationships; He IS relationships. So when we cultivate a relationship with God, we are joining Him in who He is.
  • I do not think critically enough.

You know those moments when your heart is so full that you don't have the capacity to express it in writing (much less the time to do so)? Well, I'm having one of those moments. Of course, it's wonderful to have God doing so much in my life! But I shall spare you the plethora of deep, lengthy posts, and give you a few snippets into the life of yours truly. =) And as always, I'd love to hear about all the goings-on in your lives as well!

So then, I am....

...constantly being amazed by an amazing God...

...processing all that I learned at TeenPact National Convention 2012...

...learning more of what it means to treasure Christ...

...freaking out/getting excited that I will be in college in, like, 11 weeks! Cra-zy...

...loving all the travelling I've been doing...

...writing lots of graduation thank you notes...

...trying to find time to read the mountain of books I optimistically started...

...preparing for an INCREDIBLE week at Worldview Academy (coming up SOON)....

So, what's up with you?
