Give It All Away

A few weekends ago I decided to participate in the neighborhood garage sale. I had accumulated quite a bit from my four years of college. I had all sorts of random things I would not need anymore. I thought I could make some money and then maybe go shopping with it! The garage sale went well considering no one else on my street participated in it. I made some cash and then debated on wether or not I actually needed the money I made. I knew that I did not NEED the money. I could easily do without it. I decided to give the money to people who could actually use it. I gave half the money to the little girl I sponsor through Compassion International and the other half to Campus Crusade for Christ International.

Compassion International is a great organization. I know that my money goes directly to support my sponsored child down in Haiti. She is provided food, an education and a Christ-centered support system. I love to write letters to her and one day I hope to visit her and her family. Campus Crusade for Christ International (CRU) is an organization that focuses on evangelism and discipleship. They were active on my campus and my roommates were actively involved with the organization. One of my friends will be interning with CRU this coming school year. I wanted to support her mission because I have seen first hand how my roommates have grown through CRU. Check out both of these awesome organizations!

Traveling Obsession

One of my favorite things to do is travel. I have been blessed with a family that loves traveling and takes trips as much as possible. I love planning trips and thinking about where I could go next. 

My brother is planning on studying abroad in Nagoya, Japan. I would love to go to Japan and see him so that is one trip I have started planning for. 

Another trip I would like to take is with Compassion International down to Haiti. I sponsor a girl that lives there. I have always wanted to visit her and see her face to face. 

A trip I would like to take for fun would be next to Argentina. It sounds like such an adventurous place. I would want to go ziplining through the rainforest and hike to waterfalls. I love being outside. These pictures make me just want to book a plane ticket! 

Where do you want to travel next? Please share!

Endure the Race

This is something that has been on my heart 
lately. Something that I struggle with. 
It is easy for me to lose sight when things
seem to be going the way I want. 
When all of a sudden things are not
going as I had planned, I get impatient. 

Let us throw off everything that 
hinders and the sin that so
easily entangles and let us run
with perserverance
the race marked out for us.
Heb 12:1-3

We should be running for 
Christ, not ourselves, &
we must always keep 
him in sight.

God to give you patience
to E N D U R E the
small trials you face

You Cover Me With Grace

Absolutely love this song. I will miss singing this at church. He broke our 
chains of sin and covered us with His grace. Hallelujah!
