Jeremy & I are youth advisors at our church. Here are some photos from the Winter Retreat in January. Jeremy spoke that weekend on LOVE. He did an amazing job(of course I'm bias) and really challenged the youth (and leaders too) on their views of what love is.

Is it warm fuzzy feelings or a choice to love someone?

a hilarious game where they had to feed each other baby food

you can almost hear the laughter in this picture

the whole crew

It was snowy in Laurelville, which made for great skiing at Seven Springs!

{an oldie but a goodie}

We sang this hymn during worship this morning. An oldie but such a goodie and really spoke to our hearts.

"Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart."

{pray for Christchurch,NZ}

Pray for the people of Christchurch, New Zealand who were affected by the earthquake. It seems there are so many natural disasters in that "neck of the world" in the last few weeks.

Here's a picture of Jeremy & I in front of the Cathedral that partially collapsed. We stayed only a few yards from it right in the center of the city.
