My Summer Trip

So, to update y’all on my summer. Last week, I went on a trip with my church to the Wilds Christian camp, in Ashville North Carolina! I went with a lot of people from my youth group for teen camp. I had an amazing experience while I was there. Hanging out with friends, eating some fantabulous food, and most importantly, learning about and serving God. He spoke to my heart about so many things… He totally changed my life. Now this might not sound good on a cooking blog and all, but while I was at camp, I realized, maybe I was too revolved around what I wanted to do with my cooking career, and not really thinking about what God might have for me to do. One night… August 5th to be exact… He really spoke to my heart, and was telling me that really, my life is His, and not mine… I need to do what He wants, and not what I desire.  So that night, I fully dedicated my life to Him. Now let me say this. I am not throwing away all my passion and desire to cook. I will still carry on this blog, and keep cooking. But if in the future, He has something else for me, I am just fine with doing whatever it is! And if cooking is His plan, then GREAT! I’m all for that! But I’m in His hands now. And no man will EVER pluck me out of my fathers hands!

So, finishing off… I should tell you a little more about what I did at camp. I had an amazing counselor. And 4 awesome cabin mates! Such sweet girls! We had chapel twice a day, and Christian life seminar once a day. Every day, we had a game out on the field. Very intense games. Some people took them a LITTLE too seriously! I got to spend a lot of time in Gods word. He really showed me things I didn’t even know were there. I had the best week of my life there. I will hopefully be going back next year. If God willing allows me too!

Summer is almost over, so once it is, I will hopefully start cooking again! Just bear with me! I’m a busy gall! 😉
