Not the end.

CentriKid 2011 is officially over.  Two days ago I said goodbye to the 18 people I had been living with for a solid two months.  I held it together.  There was no weeping or gnashing of teeth or putting ashes on my head (although that would have been wonderfully dramatic and grandiose and a great…

final lap

It’s definitely been 2 (or maybe 3?) weeks since I last wrote a post.  Epic fail on my part!  But camp has been so busy and the internet so slow that I’ve struggled to find a few moments to gather my thoughts together into one place.  And now I suddenly realize that CK7 only has…

a delayed reaction

The following is a post I actually wrote about a week ago.  However, it was never posted because right when I finished writing it, I lost internet.  Since then, I have barely had time to breathe, much less post a blog.  But alas!  A few moments of free time have found their way into my…

before and after

I can hardly believe that two days ago I was hanging out with kids in Florida, being roasted by the sun and getting called out for my North Carolina accent.  Well it is now June 2nd (I think…), which means that CK7 is now in Ridgecrest, North Carolina!!  This post is really just a feeble…

He is enough

Cycle 4 has ended.  Rather than try and explain the things that have gone on at CentriKid by writing paragraphs and paragraphs, here are some of the random blurbs and thoughts that come to mind when I think of these past several weeks… Being present when a 4th grader made a decision to follow Christ…

Hellooo Florida!

So after about 16ish hours of driving (give or take a few hours…it’s all a little foggy now actually…) we finally made it to Eckerd College in Florida around 5 o’clock yesterday evening.  I have to say, there really can’t be anything more entertaining than spending hours in a car with a bunch of other…

The 12 days of camp

The 12 days of camp – no, it’s not a song, but it is the number of days in a row that CK7 is running camp.  Our first week of camp was last Monday through Friday.  The campers left Friday morning, and then a few hours later a new batch of kids came rolling in…

meet CK7

Wow…I am utterly exhausted!  Training week is basically over, and now our team is preparing for the campers to roll in on Monday.  It is amazing to see how God has brought 19 people together to serve Him together over the course of the summer.  I already love my team and can’t wait to continue…

oh my goodness

The above picture describes my current feelings of excitement.  Oh my goodness – only four  more days until I head to Nashville to meet my team and begin training.  *Freaks out.  I’m extremely excited and at the same time slightly nervous about what’s ahead.  I can’t wait to see how God will move this summer…

the art of obedience

In exactly 25 days I will hop on a plane to Nashville and meet CK7, the team that I will be serving with for a solid two months.  To say that I am about to Fiesta Explode with excitement is a complete understatement. God allowed me to be a part of CK5 last summer and…
