The Summit Ministries Student Worldview Conference was one of “thee” best experiences I ever had as a young adult. It was another one of those turning points in my life. I felt like I stepped onto a whole new level, with a lot of adventure. Not only did I take my very first solo flight across the nation from Florida to Manitou Springs, CO and was by myself for two weeks with the challenge to make new friends, but I left Summit with one of the largest burdens yet–to encourage, teach, lead and share my experiences, knowledge, and passion with adolescents and young adults alike (my peers). I was inspired and greatly encouraged at Summit because I had the wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded students from every where in the United States (including Hawaii) and Uganda, Africa. WOW.

The very week I returned (this was in June), I got to work. I came home with a two part Sunday School/Bible Study curriculum called “Thinking Like A Christian” and “Countering Culture,” both of which I presented to the Elders of my church in order to teach to the 10% minority of the youth group who were as excited as I was (and am) about worldviews. Having been approved, I took off and started the study in Fall 2010 with 16% of the youth group (4 high school students). This was great! We had SOOO much fun learning how to “think like a Christian;” and the best thing was that we all learned from each other. That included me. This was very promising to me that there are young adults out there who still are willing and seeking to step up to the plate and lead.

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. ~Colossians 2:8

After a week being home, I was off again. This time to Virginia Beach, VA at Regent University with my family for the National Christian Forensic Communication Association (NCFCA) Speech and Debate National tournament! Why was I there? It was all because of our HOLY GOD! This was my third and last year competing in the league and at the Regional Tournament, I once again did not make it to finals. YES, I was disappointed, BUT that did not cause me to question GOD for HIS WAYS. I just accepted it and moved on–to Summit, of course. 😀 While I was at Summit, my mother received a call from the National Board saying I was qualified to Nationals. That was amazing! What happened was this: 3 competitors, who had higher points than I were not going to the tournament for w/e reason, thus their slot rolled down to the next person–me! Now, who can’t say that was all God’s doing?

Looking back, I can now see that God’s answer to my prayer to qualify to Nats was never “NO,” but instead “WAIT.” And that was something new I learned spiritually.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. ~Proverbs 3:5-6

Not only that but I moved on the Semi-Finals in Nationals and was awarded fifteenth place in the nation in Illustrated Oratory.

In July 2010, almost a month after I returned from Summit, I started this blog.

(The one you are reading now)

At Summit, one of the lectures we had discussed about how Christians can use the internet for things like social networking and blogging all for God’s Glory. And that’s what I wanted to do. I was so excited to start a blog as soon as I got back from CO, but the only thing that slowed me down was that I needed to find the right name for my blog and one that was currently not being used by anyone else… That was not very easy.

In September 2010, I organized a “Reading of The Constitutionevent, during the U.S. National Constitution Week, at the university I have been taking classes at. This was a first timer and a little intimidating as it was also my first time stepping out of my box on campus. With the help of some new Christian and politically conservative friends on campus, I was able to kick off this great event with Historian Dr. Jerry Newcombe as guest speaker, an official reading of the Constitution aloud by college students on microphone, and PIZZA (one of college student’s favorite foods, I learned)!

Today, April 7, 2011, I have been listed as a Staff Reporter for the University Press on my campus. For the past two months I have been contributing to the college newspaper by writing four storys, 3 of which were put to print. Journalism is a completely new writing style for me, however I have learned A LOT and quickly. Every story I have written required me to interview people like the County Commissioner, Professors, Campus Deputy Chief, students, and the Interim Provost. This is something I have been truly enjoying and it has been expanding my skills to a different level.

Bottom line is, Summit Ministries really helped me take off doing great things I would probably not have really “felt” like doing before. I definitely encourage young adults and parents to look into setting asside two weeks in the summer to attend one of the many sessions Summit Ministries has to offer. You will never forget it and you will be a whole different person. Trust me. I am.

PS: By the way, sorry about the loooong story; I do not normally write this much. I like to-the-point posts. But this was critical. I just felt REALLY compelled to share my story with you.

What are your spiritual gifts? Did you ever want to know?

Well, take this test and find out! Know where you can help out by knowing what gifts God gave you.

Here is the link.

 

This is a must read because it is probably one of the best things the Smithsonian will ever do:

By literally cutting and pasting biblical passages demonstrating the life and lessons of Jesus Christ from several Bibles, Thomas Jefferson put together a book that he titled “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth” during his retirement in 1820. (more…)

This poem was written by Hon. Roy S. Moore, former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, who lost his job because of the ACLU and other groups suing him to remove his Ten Commandments monument, which he refused to do.

America the Beautiful

America the Beautiful,

or so you used to be.

Land of the Pilgrims’ pride;

I’m glad they’ll never see.

 

Babies piled in dumpsters,

Abortion on demand,

Oh, sweet land of liberty;

your house is on the sand.

 

Our children wander aimlessly

poisoned by cocaine,

Choosing to indulge their lusts,

when God has said abstain.

 

From sea to shining sea,

our Nation turns away

From the teaching of God’s love

and a need to always pray.

We’ve kept God in our temples,

how callous we have grown.

When earth is but His footstool,

and Heaven is His throne.

 

We’ve voted in a government

that’s rotting at the core,

Appointing Godless Judges

who throw reason out the door,

 

Too soft to place a killer

in a well deserved tomb,

But brave enough to kill a baby

before he leaves the womb.

 

You think that God’s not angry,

that our land’s a moral slum?

How much longer will He wait

before His judgment comes?

 

How are we to face our God,

from Whom we cannot hide?

What then is left for us to do,

but stem this evil tide?

 

If we who are His children,

will humbly turn and pray;

Seek His holy face

and mend our evil way:

 

Then God will hear from Heaven

and forgive us of our sins,

He’ll heal our sickly land

and those who live within.

 

But, America the Beautiful,

if you don’t – then you will see,

A sad but Holy God

withdraw His hand from Thee.
