Never underestimate the power God has to surprise you.
Just a simple word of wisdom for y'all today. I was recently blown out of the water on so many things that I don't even know where to begin. Pray for Him to surprise you today, because I guarantee He will ;) Til the next new day ♥ ,

Simple Inspiration from a Friend

     Lately it's been a lot of realizations of becoming a real adult. A real grown up where life is getting ahead of me and I am going to have to really buckle down and deal with some hard crap that I've hidden for so long. There are things that I want that I know I am not ready for and there are things that I feel ready for that I know won't be for a long while.
     With all that said I am deciding to just not focus on those things.... at least not right now. Right now I want to focus on the simple things that bring us inspiration as the day goes on and as life goes on. So these are some things that I love, that I have always loved and I will always love that make my jaw drop and heart sink and eyes sparkle.... one of my really good friends this a couple posts ago which in turned inspired me to think about this list. She's awesome and y'all should all check her out at

Star Gazing
Dancing with someone
Mountain Views
Road Trips
Disney Magic
Christmas Lights
Camp sites 
Fireside crackle
a Lake Dock
Sound the water makes
Open Fields to take off running
Laughter that hurts
Little Giggles
Embarrassing moments
Human Touch
Roller Coasters
Silence from Snow
Cooking and Singing in the kitchen

That's just some, there are always more things that I find through out the day that I thank God He has made these little things that make me smile and remember that life may be moving fast and I may be becoming an adult but I might not have to grow up... at least not quite yet :)

A Good Night Prayer

 And as I lay my head to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. And if I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take....

     Lord I thank you for unanswered prayers and friends who love me. I thank you for people in my life who have the courage only through you to tell me out of love when I am screwing up and where I need help and that they love You enough to take action and help me when they know I won't seek it myself. 
     Lord I thank you for the kids we are serving and loving and the opportunity to speak into their lives. Lord we know that each kid was not a mistake and that there is a reason each leader holds validation with a different group of kids. Lord I thank you for differences and love. Lord I thank you for the unknown reason why I call the girls that I do. 
     Lord I pray for peace and settling with the things that I have done and the things that have been done to me. I pray that I am able to place them in the boxes they deserve to be put in as part of my past and things, people and events that made me who you are bringing me to today. Lord I pray that as I put these things there that You help me to keep them there. Using only when prompted by You in a way to share Your victory and love to a child of yours who may be coming to know you. 
     Lord I thank you for endless strong conversation and the reassurance a hug can do. Lord I thank you for your love and the love you show through others in my life. 
     Lord I thank you dancing and country music. It seems silly but that is who you made me to be and I wouldn't have it any other way and I know someday, someone will love it as much as me. 
     Lord I pray for college girls and high school girls in Conway that you have yet to have me meet. I pray that you are softening their hearts to you as we speak. 
     Lord as we sleep I pray that you protect the people I love. My family, my friends here in Conway and my friends back home. Let all of them know how much I respect having them in my life. Protect them tonight. 
     Lord I thank you for your love and your salvation.

This is what I do

   To everyone who is wondering what it is that I do. To all my friends that want to see another YL Club. To all the people that I've been trying to share what Young Life is.... here is a tiny window to what I am doing in Conway. I am a Young Life leader who shows up in the lives of high school and college girls. Every week with the high schoolers we have something called "Club." It's a chance for the kids to laugh and do things that they would have never expected and listen to a great message with their leader sitting right beside them.
     We kicked off our spring semester last night and I think I can speak for all the leaders when I say this semester is going to look a little different and we are all SO FREAKIN' EXCITED!!!!!
     So here is the start to what is going to be an awesome semester of Young Life in Conway, Arkansas!
