It is pretty amazing to look back at 2011 and see all of the changes God had in store for me and my family. God revealed to me the exact date, well in advance, that I would not be working for the non profit organization I’d given 4 years of my life to — but I had no idea how God would orchestrate the change. I prayed – God what do you have for me in October? And while I had no idea, I trusted Him and He has provided for me and for my family in remarkable ways. I give God the glory for all He has done! And if that was the only reason for all the changes, that I would indeed give God the glory in it, then it was worth it to pass through this season.
But in His perfect plan, He has blessed me with some pretty amazing experiences these past few months. One of these experiences was being asked to write curriculum for Chick-fil-A’s WinShape Camps. I love everything about this project – the people I’ve met, the incredible writers I’m collaborating with, the Chick-fil-A culture and especially the free chicken during my meetings at their corporate offices in Atlanta… :) Most of all, I love allowing God to write curriculum through me. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that I will work for the next 2 months to complete these projects and look back and not remember half of the activities created. That’s because they won’t be my words, but His – creating the perfect environment for children to come to know Christ better at camp this summer. Love it!
Over the next 2 months, I will specifically be creating Bible Study and Worship materials for WinShape Camps for Girls – Junior Camp at Berry College (where they filmed Remember the Titans!), WinShape Camps for Girls – 1 Week at Young Harris, and WinShape Camps for Communities – amazing day camps in 63 communities around the US this summer! So if you have kids in elementary school, check out these awesome camps for your kiddos! If you minister in a community with a Chick-fil-A restaurant, check out WinShape Camps for Communities – where the restaurants help promote the day camps held at local churches as an outreach to your community. Maybe you can even host one of these in 2013!
You can find out info about all these great programs at www.winshapecamps.org.
Thank you, friends, for praying for and with me over these past few months. I have more exciting news to announce in the coming days so stay tuned!
Blessings for 2012!
