Tonight was an extra night at Young Life for a couple reasons--
8TH GRADERS! Now that we're nearing the finish line of the school year our 8th grade friends are officially welcome to start coming to Young Life. They get a picture of what it looks like with all of these older kids before things slow down during the summer. It was so exciting to have this crew of girls at Campaigners tonight.
MY GAL PALS! I get to see Kegs, Genna, Hools (and Samone and Erin) nearly every week at Young Life but that doesn't make it any less special. I'm consistently thankful for this crew, their friendship and the role that I get to play in their lives. Whether we're laughing to the point of tears, talking about hard stuff, volunteering at Wyld Life or they're driving me nuts-- I'm always a fan of them.
Our small group at Campaigners with Kylie and Emily Paxton tonight was quite the crew of friends. With 8th graders, Juniors and a college Freshmen in the same room there was so much to share. I love when we come together with different experiences, different perspectives, different stories and grow together.
These words are gold. Maybe this is what you need to hear today.
If you're not sure what your thing is, maybe now is the time to figure out. God wants to partner with us as we go after our passions. Love does.
