Why hello there!

Between camp & work this summer has been a little bit hectic for me. But in comparison to a very close friend of mine, it's been a breeze aha

In just over a week, she is embarking on an 11 month mission trip. 

Eleven months. Like, what?? 

Part of me thinks she's a little nuts haha And part of me thinks that it is SO awesome. I'm in crazy admiration of  her courage and her faith. It will be a life-changing experience and I cannot wait to see how she grows & changes. 

Today's post is dedicated to her. For all the adventures she is about to go through and for everything she is going to learn in this next year.

This verse was in a devotional email that I get and it so resonated with me today.

"Be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt! 
For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9 LB)

You don't need to go around the world to experience adversity, it happens here in our everyday lives. But no matter where we are or what we're dealing with, we don't have to be afraid or discouraged. And that is something to encourage us all.

So here's to all the crazy adventures that life brings our way and the courage to deal with them all :)
