So, if you've known me for more than five seconds you know I'm a Christian. My whole being, all the way to my core is in love with Jesus, so when writing a post about a Core Value I'm grateful for, what else would I write about but Jesus? However, Christianity is such a big … Continue reading Have Courage
This week's topic is gratitude for something you've created. There's not much I've created in my lifetime. I try to be crafty (the artsy kind, not the evil villain kind), but there's just not a lot I've really done. But one thing I have created is this blog. Guys. I am so freaking proud of … Continue reading Apostellomai
I love gifts. I love giving them and getting them, Christmas and birthdays are two of my favorite things. However, I think the best present in the world are the small, spontaneous ones that you know will mean the world to you. That's why one of my favorite gifts I've ever received is a care … Continue reading The Best Gift I’ve Ever Recieved
I love bringing new people on new adventures. Or is it old adventures? Disney World is my home, and sharing it with people I love is one of my favorite things; which is why when four of the staff women decided to spend a day at Magic Kingdom I gladly hopped on board! I’ve never … Continue reading Zip-a-dee-do-da-day!
So, a metaphor we use for teaching our students on the Disney Summer Mission is ‘big wave surfing.’ We compare learning to surf to learning how to do evangelism. Evangelism, just like surfing requires a lot of faith and trust (and maybe a bit of spiritual pixi dust). I don’t know how many of you … Continue reading I’ll Surf ’till the Sun Sets Beyond the Horizon
It's shocking how much can change in a year. As I've journeyed back across the country to Florida and spent my first few days on staff with Cru, that's something I've been continually reflecting on. About a week ago I sat in my hotel in the panhandle of Florida, halfway through my 13 hour drive … Continue reading Be Prepared!
There are not words to describe the incredible joy God has brought me through the Walt Disney World Summer Mission. I am still astounded at the many incredible things He has done this summer. I had so much anxiety going into this mission over whether I would make friends, whether I would grow spiritually, whether … Continue reading “The Dream that I Wish [Has] Come True”
So far, most of my blogs posts have been about the people on project, but I have written very little about work. This post, therefore, shall be about my co-workers. Working at Disney is amazing. They put so much effort into making sure each guest is having a magical day. They really make sure in … Continue reading “Whistle While You Work”
I am so full of love. Everyone on this project is so loving and encouraging, and has built me up in so many ways. A little over a week ago, we were having Women's Time as we always do on Mondays, but this week was special. We spent an entire hour intentionally with our roommates, … Continue reading “You’ve Got a Friend in Me!”
Wow, so much has happened in the past two weeks (only two??) since I've gotten here. Rather than doing several small posts about various things that have happened, I decided to combine several stories into one blog! Here we go: Our second day here we met in our Discipleship Groups and did something called Soul-to-Souls. … Continue reading “A Whole New World!”
