    Why I Serve at Youth Group

    Every Friday night I volunteer at my church’s youth group. This involves a few different jobs. I help with the general admin for the youth. I also help them track their quiet times and memory verses so that they can earn their scholarships for Word of Life Camp at the end of the year. On top of this, I lead a small group of girls whom I try and help apply the weekly lesson to their daily lives. I talk to teenagers and make a fool of myself, plan games or ice breakers. While doing all these things I try to have the biggest possible impact on their lives that…

I have felt like that so many times before. Honestly, if life were to come with a reset button, I probably would have pushed it way too early in life and missed a really good opportunity. Maybe when I was 10 or 11 and thought my life…

    Why I Haven’t Given Up on Christ, Christianity and the Church

    I was just reading an article on The Gospel Coalition called The Perils of Falling for a ‘Fyre’-Style Faith. Personally I know nothing about the Fyre Festival or its documentary on Netflix. I would never have clicked on this post, I just happened to read it because I follow TGC on on Feedly and so it was the next article in my feed. The article discussed how we as Christians sometimes try and oversell Christianity and a fantasy faith. This often results in a bunch of so called “conversions” to Christianity and then a bunch of new converts who feel that they haven’t received what they were promised (like the…
