Jesus loves me.

I am incredibly grateful that Jesus loves me, not inspite of, but smack dab in the midst of my life. I stand on holy ground at this moment. I am at Camp Keystone, the camp I grew up at – as staff kid, camper, counselor, staff member, and now I come as event manager. I…

All the things

I’m giggling at myself as I do some scriptural research. I read a scripture verse incorrectly, yet I LOVE my accidental misspeak.
