All Glory Be To Christ

Over the past several months I have experienced a growing conviction which I believe to be from the Lord. Perhaps you can relate to what I’ve been going through. Paul writes about this very thing in Galatians 1.   “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of […]

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

    Have you watched A Charlie Brown Christmas? It’s a personal favorite to watch every holiday season. I thought I might use this 1965 classic to remind us of what Christmas is really all about.   All throughout the episode, Charlie Brown and his friends consistently misunderstand Christmas. At one point, Charlie Brown looks over at […]

Hearing God’s Voice Over the Noise

There’s something beautiful and insightful about spending time in the wilderness, surrounded by God’s beautiful creation; I can’t think of a better way to appreciate God’s majesty. That’s exactly what ASAP is about, spending the week completely shut off from the rest of the world and surrounded on all sides by beautiful mountains, by trees […]

The Foundation of My Faith

Trusting God

Tomorrow we vote to elect the next President of the United States.   If you are a current TeenPact student, you are likely saying to yourselves, “I am too young to vote in this election.” And that is true. However, as is often communicated at the State Class and other Alumni Events, you are not […]

Endeavor 2016 Recap

A few weeks ago, I was sitting on an airplane in the early hours of a Sunday morning. As people around me dozed, I found myself praying for the 41 young women who would be joining me the following day at Endeavor on Lake Oconee in Georgia. It was during that time that the Lord […]

It Is Well

This was by far my favorite TeenPact event I have attended. There were many times throughout the week that I felt God’s presence and His peace. Some of those times were through devotions or Rendezvous, while others were simply witnessing His hand in history through the museums I visited. However, worship at the Lincoln Memorial definitely […]
