Personal Narratives are the central focus of English Composition in Room 201 right now. Did you know that conflict is one of the most important elements of a personal narrative? Today the conflicts in my own life included having a student throw up in class for the first time ever, driving around in the pouring rain trying to get my car to no avail, and feeling like my stomach was going to implode. It was an odd day.
But even though it was a rather dreary morning there were still great moments.
1. I got to try out the new Huddles in Carmel with Darian. She's an 8th grader that I've know through Camp T and Wyld Life for a couple years and she asked me to be her confirmation mentor. I'm so excited to get to know her better and to watch her grow as God works in her life through this process. Today we talked and laughed and made Top 10 Lists about the main characters in our lives.
A girl came back tonight that hadn't been to Young Life in awhile. She told our group, "I love that at Young Life I can just come back and fit right back in. Everyone just accepts you here. Like if we were all talking at school there would be walls up but here we're all just honest with each other."
