By Our Love


They will know us by our love.   Never has this sentence made more sense in my life than this last semester of my life.   I have been blessed. I grew up in a Christian family and was involved in our local church, speech and debate, and of course, TeenPact. Each of these groups are […]

For the Dreamers


I had it all planned. I knew exactly what I was going to write, but God placed something new on my heart very recently, and I need to share it with you.   I have been a dreamer my entire life.   There is so much in this world that I want to see and […]

Stay Salty


If you’re like me, you probably heard at least one sermon about “salt and light” growing up. And if you’re like me, you probably don’t recall the “salt” part being addressed nearly as much as the “light”.   Around nine months ago, I noticed that while I could tell you all about being “the light […]

Show Me


Since last October God has blessed me with a job as a barista at Starbucks. I love my job because the work environment allows me to be creative. I enjoy getting to know (most of) the regular customers that come in, and I really like working with and getting to know my co-workers.   Recently […]

Through a Lens


Every day, Alan traveled with his father down to the southern coast a few miles outside the town of Dundee.  His family was entrusted with the task of caring for an old lighthouse that stood out on the rocky coast of Scotland.  There, his father taught Alan how to maintain the equipment, refuel the lamp, […]

Irrefutable Love


As a Christian in this culture, it is easy to become lukewarm or even doubtful of our faith. Our school system teaches an absence of God and we are faced with constant distractions. Our country has become increasingly indifferent to the gospel and is rapidly drifting away from the Christian ideals that America was founded on. It is a sad truth […]

Life Together


In 2007, a platoon of soldiers left for a 15-month deployment in Afghanistan. They were headed to outpost Restrepo in the remote Korengal Valley. Named after a brave Army medic who had given his life defending the outpost, Restrepo was considered one of the most dangerous outposts in the entire country. The soldiers stationed there […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Power in Weakness


Dear TeenPact Nation, You may have heard me talk about 2 Corinthians 12:9, which says, “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, most gladly, I will rather boast in my infirmities that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”  Just think about […]
