Wyld Life loves 'Merica too

Wyld Life kids are really good at dressing up and taking pictures. They've got the faces down, the best props, the learning to quickly make interesting formations and they knew when to dive into the frame. I think if YL needs some new models for their marketing they should carefully consider using these kids.


This is Milly. She's crazy. When I started this school year so many people asked me if I had this girl in my class. She's loud and funny and outgoing and I'm really glad she's been one of the kids I've gotten to know this school year.

Tonight kids showed up that we've been praying for and pursuing in the hallways at school. There is no question that God is doing big things here. I love when Rachel and Caitlin can come and they're so goofy and awesome together. I love that the lines of who goes in which friend group and getting blurred and these girls can all hang out together. I love that they've got the vision that everyone is included and Young Life is for everyone.

We started the evening with singing the National Anthem to Audrey the flag and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Tonight we got to dance to Party In The USA, I know it got overplayed for awhile but I really think it's one of those songs that we can always go back to if we need to take a dance party to the next level. It was a good time.

We did some more 'Merican Spelling. Hilarious chaos ensued.

Tonight was a crazy busy night for so many of these kids with a track meet, soccer practice, lacrosse and cheer. It makes my night when the kids still want to show up after their commitments and their parents are willing to bring them.

We didn't have time to get to the 'Merica Trivia questions tonight but I'm thinking maybe you want to test your own knowledge and then quiz your friends:

Maddie and Jake got the honors of bobbing for toy soldiers in the applesauce tonight. Maddie actually volunteered to play this game and was so excited. Everyone started chanting their names, they had coaches yelling in their ears and the applesauce was flying.

While everyone is so excited for summer it dawned on us today that there are only two Wyld Life Clubs left for the semester. This has become such a regular part of our schedule and it will definitely be missed. I know these kids won't have a problem with making the most of the time we have left together.

I got to give the Club Talk tonight, it's an honor to get to share what's on my heart with these kids and offer them some encouragement and insight. I loved getting to sit in a circle of girls afterwards and talk about what stood out to them and how they think it applies to their lives. All of our own stories are intertwined and we get to be key encouragers, listeners, prayer warriors and friends for each other.
