A Judicial Journal


It’s finally summer! My friends are sunburnt and applying for seasonal jobs, and today I finished my Judicial homework. My mom gave me this notebook and suggested I jot down some thoughts at the end of each day.   Day 1 – Sunday Today I flew by myself for the first time. At the Richmond […]

The Stories of National Convention


There’s nothing quite like arriving at National Convention.   After surviving those last few minutes of driving (which are the longest part of the trip), you swing your car door open, and you’re greeted by a hot Tennessee breeze and hundreds of excited strangers. Even for the most extroverted of us, this sea of faces […]

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. We gathered for Back to D.C., an event chock full of […]

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 […]

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.   […]

Join the Brotherhood


Who are you? Think deeply on these three simple words. Sure, you might answer quickly with your name, where you’re from, or your hobbies. But is that truly answering the question? Are these surface level facts the defining makeup of who we are? Is it our past; the decisions we’ve made, the people we know […]

A Vibrant Community


Last summer, I had the opportunity to attend Judicial, my first TeenPact Alumni Event. It was such a full week––spiritually, intellectually, and relationally. Throughout the program, we were all stretched in different ways, and it was incredible to see people excel as they stepped further and further out of their comfort zones.   I have […]

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 […]

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 […]
