Let’s try this again…

Maybe it was not the wisest thing to start a blog with 2 weeks to go until a huge work event… and by work event, I mean an awesome weekend camp for middle schoolers. I work for Still Water Sports Camp, an incredible ministry that provides a fun, Christ-centered camp environment using sports and adventure activities to reach out to middle school-age students. We just had our big winter retreat, Weekend of Warriors, this past weekend and it was awesome! We all saw the Lord moving and challenging the students and staff! The vast majority of students accepted a challenge to cross that line in the sand and start living out the faith they claimed. It was incredible!

I can go on and on about how much I love working for Still Water…
…using sports to connect with kids
…giving scholarships to allow students of ALL socioeconomic backgrounds attend a high quality sports camp
…talking with parents about how grateful they are for both the financial support and life-changing experience for their children
…the transformation and community among staff
…seeing God provide for the ministry and work in the lives of the kids and staff
Like I said, I could go on and on. If you want to check out more for yourself, you can visit the websites:
For now, here are some pictures from the weekend:


This cross is right in front of the outdoor pavilion where we held "Chalk Talk," our worship and speaking sessions. It is such an incredible picture to see God’s beauty both in the creation (seriously, how beautiful is that water?) and in the message of the Cross.

Circling up to pray…


Krud War: The biggest mud/food fight I have ever seen. Smells disgusting, but the kids (and most of the staff) love it!


How do they get clean, you ask? Well, how about jumping into the appropriately-name Frio River in January…

And just for fun… a 26 week baby bump picture.

All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain.
He washed it white as snow.”

Thanks to Dempsey Thornton who let me use her pictures because I did not take any... oops.
