Is it possible that even though teens today have more freedom than any other generation in history, we're actually missing out on some of the best years of our lives?Is it possible that what our culture says about the purpose and potential of the teen years is a lie, and that we are its victims?Is it possible that our teen years give us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for huge accomplishments -- as individuals and as a generation?And finally, what would our lives look like if we set out on a different path entirely -- a path that required more effort but promised a lot more reward?
I know i posted this once already, but it is so true! and i just have to post it again.
I would also like to challenge any christian teens out there, to just go nuts with your salvation!!!!!! tell all your friends, and thank God continually for His incredible gift of life and love! he paid the price willingly for us!! ...isn't that worth telling others about??
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

my first week of teaching 5-day clubs is over, and all I can say is wow!! God taught me so much, and i am so excited about finally putting all the stuff I learned at CYIA into practice.
we also had a club at the salvation army. that was so cool!! Usually we had 2 clubs a day, but on Wednesday we had 3 including the salvation army club!!
In the pictures me and some of my friends are just having fun!!!...'cause that's what we do best!!!

I am so excited about teaching clubs this coming week!! And in this picture I am practicing on the best "Talking Trees" (that is what we call anyone or anything, that you can practice your stuff on)
EVER! My siblings!! This year the missionary story is "Hudson Taylor" I am really glad I get to teach the missionary story a few times this week!! I love telling stories to kids!!
and I am just so thrilled to finally be doing this!! I know that this is right where God wants me!
Even so, it is not the will of your father in heaven, that any of these little ones should be lost.
