Reflections of Family Camp!!

 ** Our second annual Memorial Day Weekend Family Camp was this past weekend here are some highlights:

1) The weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!

2) The boys did a great job playing an acoustical set around the campfire on Friday night!!

3) Family Camp doubled in size from last year!!

4) Our speaker, Boomer Roland, did an amazing job!!

5) Mike and I had the strength to get through the weekend!!
(Thanks for the PRAYERS)
6) We had opportunities to pour into the lives of each family who came!

7) We had great leaders to do our workshops & nursery!!
 (No picture as I did not have time to ask for permission; they know who they are!!)
8) There was a three year old who went down the black banana THREE times, he went to do it again but decided he could not as he could not get his "teeth to stop chattering" this little boy also made a memory as he was asked his age to which his reply was "I'm STILL THREE!!!" (very cute & adorable)

9) Our work project went well, had several families participate!!
10) Our passion grew even more to work on a full time basis with families to share what God can do in a family unit!! I am constantly reminded of God's restoration in our marriage and how he has bonded us together through the grace and forgiveness he offers. I want others to see the redemption by sharing with them and giving them tools to help equip them to spread the word! I am reminded of the verse John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full"
Satan will do what he can to steal our focus, to steal our priorities, to steal our joy that we find in balancing our lives so that we may have life and have it abundantly.  He will kill and destroy our hopes, our desires & our dreams.  But, our ways are not ours and our thoughts are not ours. We must constantly be transforming our minds instead of conforming them to the patterns of this world so that we may have the life He has promised. The road is not easy, but it worth the fight.
