Camp is to me:

Hi!  I’m back from youth camp!  I’m still sooooo SLEEPY!  But I’m slowly recovering.  :)  It’s back to work and my regular schedule this week. 

I wanted to share a little bit of youth camp with you!

Camp is…..

Late nights with 9th graders jumping on the bed.

Watching teens eat chocolate covered twinkies (secretly filled with mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup!!!!!) hehe!  So funny!

The teen girls doing my hair everyday.  One day they put a red clip-in hair piece in my hair.  I must say…..I kinda liked it! :)

A super amazing worship band!!!!!!  You should totally check out The Jason Lovins Band!  They are my new fav.

Being able to serve the Lord alongside my husband!

But most importantly……seeing over 40 youth stand up at the end of camp to make a decision to follow Christ!  whoohoo!!!!!  It was amazing!

So, that’s a wrap!  It was a blast.  I will enjoy sleeping in my bed and using my own shower this week though! hehe!

I can’t wait to catch up with everyone’s blogs this week!!!!

Have a very blessed and joy filled day!

Hugs!
