Be ALIVE for it {Weekend Recap}


This weekend we were away with the youth of our church. It was an awesome time!! We went to Timber Ridge Camp @ Trout Lake up in Pine River. So fun! These were the girls in my cabin along with my sister-in-law Steph. So great!

We were SO blessed to hear teachings from Mark (my dad-in-law), Steph & Joshy! It was soooo cool to see them obey God in what they had to say!! God really did work and it was beautiful.


Chains were for sure broken and God was glorified! Saturday night there was BREAKTHROUGH and it was so evident. What an answer to prayer! I am so proud that God is working and doing business with the youth of this generation. It was the coolest thing to witness and experience!!

We had a lot of free time too... snow tubbing, cupcake decorating, games, cabin fireplaces, snow... so good and relaxing. Oh and AWESOME food!! Here are some photos:


I love spending time with youth, my family & Jesus. This was an awesome weekend with the theme of "Life is Short... Be ALIVE for it!" There was so much truth spoken and I learned a lot!! God wants us to DREAM BIG for our lives and have vision and purpose. That is a meaningful relationship with him!!

Not to mention... I love doing LIFE with this handsome man - my hubby!!

Happy Monday - New week!!! Blessings to you!

I just found your blog and I'm a new follower! I am also a recently married 20-something learning to live as a wife! Your weekend seems like it was a lot of fun! I'm going on a Women's Retreat with some ladies from my church this upcoming weekend and in March I'm going to REVOLVE, a retreat for teen girls in Baltimore. I'm so excited to share the experience with the young girls of my church.
