"I think he's a Jedidiah Jenkins. There's this whole category of guys that are Jedidiah's-- they're the greatest."

Haleigh Devoe-- such a rock star and one of my favorite parts of every school day. I love getting to spend time with her every single day.

Taylor Porter-- she is one of my oldest friends at this point and has such a beautiful soul. I love when she has to come back to Indy from Colorado so that our lives can overlap on afternoons like today. I need more of her in my life.

Grace Tully-- this girl is so kind that it just makes you want to be her friend. When she was in 7th grade I didn't get to be her teacher, but I knew I wanted to know her because of how she carried herself at school and the company she surrounded herself with. She'll make you laugh till you cry and she's one of the most loyal 8th graders I know. 

Elizabeth and Allie-- I got lucky this semester and have both of these girls as students. They're sweet, kind, helpful, respectful, smart and full of potential. I love when I get to see them at Wyld Life.

Chloe, Hannah and I got to hang out with a group of 7th grade girls tonight during campaigners. We talked about so many good verses tonight, that kind that you read and think, "Yes, yes, yes. This is truth. This is so good." Sharing those words, working through questions, and listening to these girls is one of my favorite things.

"God began doing a good work in you. And he will continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again. I am sure of that... This is my prayer for you: that your love will grow more and more; that you will have knowledge and understanding with your love; that you will see the difference between good and bad and choose the good; that you will be pure and without wrong for the coming of Christ; that you will be filled with the good things produced in your life by Christ to bring glory and praise to God." Philippians1:6, 11

"So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you." Romans 12:1-2
