So, my Fall Break went more fabulous than I had originally planned.

I ended up getting to go to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX for FREE!
If you have ever been too or looked at going to Great Wolf Lodge, you know how expensive that place is and to be able to go for is amazing!
The reason I got to go is because of a lovely lady from my church who recieved free 8 tickets from her nephew who recieved them from teh CEO of Great Wolf Lodge. You may be wondering how he got to even meet the CEO, well let me tell you.

If any of you have watched Undercover Boss on CBS, you know what I am talking about. About a month ago Great Wolf Lodge was featured on Undercover Boss. (For those of you who haven't watched it, the shows plot is pretty cool. A CEO of a certain company goes to the companies sites and pretends to be just a regular employee. At the end they introduce themselves to the employees they worked side by side with during the show at the CEO.) Well my friend from high school works at Great Wolf Lodge and is the aquatic supervisor there. He was on the show (which is a pretty big deal for Ryan, OK) and at the end of the show the CEO actually told him that she would be paying for his flight school and he would get 8 free passes for his family for the park. Guess who got one of those passes? Muah. :)

It was an amazing time with amazing people and it was good to catch up with an old friend.

On another note, sitting in church tonight the first song we sang hit me pretty hard. I need to apply it to myself. "Let The Beauty of Jesus Be Seen In Me"

In Him,


Just Do it.

Okay, so I've been trying to post pictures from this website for about half an hour, but blogspot isn't letting me. Go to this website, you'll like it.


Just do it.

In Him,


Oh, Fall Break.

"You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love." -Galatians 5:13

I used this verse today in a speech I gave for my Speech class. This verse says a lot to me. I am constantly struggling to improve my relationship with God. I have my highs and my lows, or as my mom would say my highs are when I'm "high on God". I have come to realize the only times that I am truly "high on God". These times are when I am at or have just come from Camp Lu-Jo or when I am hanging out with my Christian friends. These are the times when I am truly happy with who I am. I am constantly wanting to improve my relationship with God, which is definitely not a bad thing, but this verse is also telling me I need to serve others by helping them get closer with God. That's just thing, how do you bring up God in a casual conversation? If you got the answer, comment on this post.

So, it's Fall Break and I am going to not only use this time to work on school work and catch up with sleep but also to try to improve my relationship with God.

Won't you join me?

In Him,



Is it possible to ever have a "perfect" relationship with God?

This may be a stupid question but it just popped in my head this morning at church and it's just one of those that I can't answer for myself.

Isaiah 53:6

In Him,


When God Calls....

So, here lately I feel that God has put on my heart to do something I believe I should of done a long time ago, so I'm going to become a nun...........


But, seriously He has put something on my heart & I am going to follow His wishes.

I am at home this weekend and boy do I have a busy weekend ahead of me! 1st of all, I have a birthday party to go to tomorrow! and then I have a lot of homework to do after that. Sunday, I am putting whatever creativity I have to use and taking pictures of my cousin and her 2 year old son, which made me realize I really want a REAL PHOTOGRAPHERS CAMERA!! Hint, hint, mom! But it will be an exciting weekend!

Also, this week has been a little rough for me and I have been kind of struggling with my relationship with God. I guess you can say I've been a little depressed and for no reason. But several times this week I have heard a song that has helped me a lot. It's amazing what God can do through that radio, but it's also amazing what God can do..period!

Here are the lyrics:

"Praise You In This Storm"

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say "Amen", and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to you
And you raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

But as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away


I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

[Chorus x2]

In Him,

So, here lately I have been a little down.
So yesterday I messaged my good friend Kenzie and asked if she would meet me for coffee so I could vent and get advice. Like the nice lady she is, she agreed.

We met at All About Cha, a cute little coffee joint in Edmond, and told her what was on my mind and she gave me advice, not just any advice, but good advice.

I'm not going to lie, this past week, I have been forgeting to serve God and put Him first. After I realized I had been doing this..I WANTED TO SCREAM and I was so dissappointed in myself, so that's when good ole' Kenzie came into play. I belief God puts people like that in our lives so we can have someone to turn to when things get tough. I mean I have other friends to turn too but for someone reason God put Kenzie on my heart to talk to and I am sure glad He did! I couldn't ask for a better Kenzie Keck! :)


In Him,


I Do

Oh, what a great day it's been.
I got to sleep in, for once.
& I went to a beautiful wedding and watched one of my friends walk down the isle and say I do. :)
(& i have to say it really makes me want to get married, but of course, I will let God's plan take it's course for my life.)

Here are a few things that make me happy:
- Weddings.
- New Notebooks.
- New Make-up.
- Watching movies.
- Sleeping In.
- Church.
- Talking to my parents on the phone. :)
(even better, talking to them in person)
- Serving a great God.

In Him,
