Me and my daddy at Christmas!

Happy Father’s day to the best dad in the whole world!

I love you daddy, so much! I love so many things about you. I love the way you have ALWAYS made sure I know that you love me. You never let a day go by without telling me how much you loved me. There was never a question in my head whether you loved me. I KNOW YOU LOVE ME SO MUCH!

I love how you would tell us stories in the car when we traveled about your life before having us. You always have the most interesting and cool stories!

I love how you would sing with us in the car AND make up songs about us. I always felt so special.

I love how proud you are of me. I love how you tell everyone about me and my love for Jesus.

I love that you never meet a stranger, and that you instilled that in me and Meagan.

I love that you would do ANYTHING in the world for me that you could.

I love that you have been married to my mom for 36 years(?).

I love how you like to make me breakfast in the mornings, like Coco Wheats or this last time you wanted to make me blueberry pancakes.

I love that you flew me home to surprise mom one year and it cost a fortune.

I love YOU so much!

When I was little, I never wanted you to be away from me, or I wanted to go with you places because I thought I would keep you “safe”.

I love that you drove to Lynchburg like 10 times in my first 2 years at college.

I love that you call my phone and when I don’t answer you leave me a voicemail that says “I just wanted to hear your voice.”

I’m sure there are more, but I’ll end with these. I love you so much. I am so thankful you are my daddy! I think I love you more and more everyday! I’m praying for you! 🙂

Love your favorite 24 year old daughter! 🙂


Only 3 days left until I am headed to the airport and boarding my plane to fly to ROMANIA! Tomorrow we have some training with some girls that weren’t here a couple of weeks ago. We’ll have some good time in the word, and fellowship together over lunch and pool time. What fun!!!

I just got back from ATL tonight around 9. I have a pretty full day tomorrow AND Tuesday. Very little time to pack for the 20 days. Lord, help me! 🙂

Me sitting in the prayer room at IHOP-ATL!!

So I didn’t get a chance to write yesterday. I spent the day laying by a pool here in Lawrenceville. It was really awesome. It looks like a kids pool, and it was FULL of kids. Its called a leisure pool. We played in it all! It even had a lazy river to float down, and a whirlpool area.


Then I spent the evening listening to Lou Engle of the Call. It was powerful night of contending for issues such as abortion and the homosexual agenda and the spirit of Jezebel. We were praying over the men of the church who are struggling with issues of compromise and immorality. God desires a bride who is righteous! And He is able to deliver us out of our sins! It was powerful!

Today has been a day full of the Lord! I am about to go into a session where Corey Russel is going to speak. I’m excited! Have Your way God!


I leave for Romania in 4 days! It is quickly closing in on me! There are 3 of my team members (one is my team leader) who live in Georgia, actually in Lawrenceville. So we met up at the prayer room and had a meeting about what I will be doing in Romania! Me and my friend Stephen will be teaching small groups about walking in the Spirit. And God is preparing us! Its really exciting. We also talked about the game time, I will be helping lead the games! This will be a really fun time, and a time where we build relationships!

Break in God! Prepare us for this trip! Do what you want to in us and through us! Change these campers lives forever! Let them fall more in love with Jesus! Amen!

girls IHOP-ATL1

So this part of the post isn’t about Romania…yet. But this is a picture of me and Jess and Kirsten 5 minutes ago!

We are at IHOP-ATLANTA! We were blessed to be able, at the last minute, drive down and attend the Passionate Pursuit Conference.

We are staying with Kirsten’s parents who are so awesome! They just rented an apartment two minutes from IHOP-ATL for 6 months so that they can do an internship!

They love Jesus so much, it’s incredible!

So we don’t even have to use the car at all while we are here. We grabbed our backpacks and walked the short distance.

So here we are, ready to hear from the Lord!

We are here until Sunday afternoon then we head back to Burlington!


We leave for Romania in 6 days! It is crazy!  I feel as if there is so much to do, and then we go away for three days! But God is good!

Here are some things I am praying for, for out team and Romania and myself:


fall in love with Jesus


death to LIFE



walking in the Spirit

Camp in RO

This is Camp Lighthouse. This is where I will be spending ALL of my time while I am in Romania.

Camp Lighthouse

This is inside in one of the main rooms. This is where all the services and worship times will be held.

Camp Lighthouse 1

This is a good picture of the buildings that are on the land. I am pretty sure that they might have built more buildings since these pictures were taken. These were in 2007.

Camp games

And the place where we build the relationship with the kids is during GAMES! This is a pivotal time during camp, this is where we get to know them and love them!

RO buteni

We are staying in Buteni (pronounced: Buten), Romania. I couldn’t find a map with Buteni on it in relation to other cities etc…so I made my own. I think this is around where Buteni is. But that is not 100 percent. Its for sure 2 1/2 hour car ride from Timisoara, which is kinda covered in the red circle I made. 🙂
