Flickering Light


It’s not uncommon for lights to flicker.   It’s an experience that, many times, goes completely unnoticed. You’ll be going about your business when all of a sudden, just for an instant, the light is gone.   We hardly even notice this phenomenon until it’s over because our eyes are so accustomed to existing in […]

Imagine it is Christmas morning and you are gathered in the living room with your family all around. The smell of the homemade breakfast fills the air, the stockings, filled with treats, are hung on the mantle, the Christmas tree is surrounded by presents, and you are all sitting down with your favorite hot drink […]

Eucharisteo


I remember as a little girl, I always loved the movie Pollyanna. Briefly summarized, the movie (based on a novel) is the story of a young orphan girl living in the early 1900’s. Despite her painful and broken past, she decides to approach life with the mindset of taking difficult circumstances, and turning them into something […]

Why Am I Here?


Two weeks ago, 100 students, parents, and TeenPact staff arrived in our nation’s Capital. Students came by planes and trains, short car rides and multi-day caravans. We had early mornings and late nights, lots of D.C. METRO rides and hours and hours of training sessions, tours, and small group campaign exercises.

Walk the Talk


At National Convention this past year, I had the opportunity to share a message about forgiveness. Driving home from the event, I knew I needed to work on this in my own life and thought, “Hey, I know a lot about forgiveness. This should be easy.” False. I found forgiveness to be just as difficult, if not harder. I found […]

Inspiring and Equipping


Endeavor exists to inspire and equip young women to glorify and enjoy God.   Over a year ago, when I was invited to step up as the Program Director for TeenPact’s Endeavor programs, I already knew that I loved the vision of Endeavor. The catechistic language was appealing, but, even more than that, such a […]

Inspiring the Next Generation


This year I was introduced to TeenPact for the first time.   When I arrived at the New York State Capitol for my first Four Day Class, I really had no idea what to think. Would these be a bunch of strict people who only use thee’s and thou’s? Was I going to listen to stodgy […]

TeenPact is Like a Deck of Cards


It was only last week that I drove away from TeenPact Survival Northwest.   Survival was absolutely amazing, and I’m coming to realize that words don’t quite express the things you experience at TeenPact. As I was thinking over what happened at this event, a sort of story started to form in my mind. Maybe you’ll appreciate reading it.   […]
