Tomorrow, which is actually today, is my last day at Feather Sound Community Church. I'm not gonna lie, it's going to be a tough time saying adios to the youth group. I've been at that church for 20 years, grown up in the youth group, and watched it go through many changes. So much of my life has been invested in it, but it's time to open a new chapter in my life.

I can only hope I've impacted those kids as much as they've impacted me. I mean, they are so amazing. I have had the privilege of leading them over the last year, but for the most part I feel like they've taught me more than I could ever teach them.

But even though it's going to be difficult to leave, I know I'm doing the right thing. I believe God is calling me to The Movement Church, so that's where I'm gonna go. Being obedient has always been a struggle for me because of my independence, but I'm going and I'm trusting God that this is the right thing to do.

I've attended a few services already and I've never been so welcomed by strangers before in my life. These people are so real and honest and they love God with all their being. It's incredible. And I am so excited to be a part of this.

In other news, Tim Wagner and I have started a band called The Exceptions and we had our first practice today. It went really well. We almost have one complete song and we're probably gonna record a rough track next week. All we need now is another guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer...

peace, love, and high hopes.

Five Question Friday?

So I guess there's this thing every Friday where we can answer questions about ourselves so you guys get can to know us better. Here goes:

1. What do you do when you have time to yourself?
I mostly just hang out at home, chill on the computer, or do whatever I can think of with friends. Sometimes I like to read or lay out but I mostly like spending my time with people I love.

2. When you look out your kitchen window, what do you see?
The inside of our front "patio." There's a BBQ out there, some plants, and a table and chairs. I can also kind of see the houses across the road. Oh! And I can't forget the daily 4:30 pm rain.

3. Who/What would you want to be reincarnated as?
If reincarnation existed, I would probably want to be reincarnated as Ellen Page because I like the roles she plays in movies and it'd be super fun. But I'm golden with one life on earth =)

4. What is your biggest pet peeve about other people's kids?
I work with kids a lot, so I see kids do a lot of things I wish they didn't. Like, when they're rude or don't listen when we're trying to explain why they can't do something because they could hurt themselves. Or when they beg and beg and beg their parents for something they don't need and their parents cave. I'll stop there.

5. Regular or Diet soda?
Regular. Always. First of all, it tastes better. Secondly, I'd rather not add more chemicals to my body that could be cancerous than I already do on a daily basis. Just sayin.

peace, love, and fives.
