Did I Design a T-shirt?

I’m so excited to share with you something I designed for you! Bonfire is an awesome site that you can use to create t-shirts and other apparel, then sell it and make a profit or fund-raise. In the interest of raising money for schooling and mission work (which are closely intertwined), I designed a couple of shirts. The design is mostly the same, just one is made more with guys in mind and the other sized for girls.

 

Each one costs only $19.99! The way this works is that the campaign will be open for three weeks, and at the end of that time, if the minimum amount has been met, (5 shirts bought), they will be printed and sent out. Otherwise, no shirts will be printed and you will get to keep your money. Anyway. On to the important details!!!

….

Ladies Shirts

The shirts come if four jewel-toned colors. Ladies’ colors are orange, teal, scarlet, and light olive.

Gentlemen’s Shirts

The guys’ shirts come in light olive, gold, cardinal, and Tahiti blue.

….

The pros of buying one of these shirts?

1. You’ll have an awesome shirt that also shares your faith.

2. You’ll be supporting my work in spreading the Gospel.

Spread the word! Have a friend that loves t-shirts? Share the link! I’ll be very grateful!

Campaign ends in 20 days. Shirts will be shipped out on May 2, 2019

And one final thing. If you’re interested in creating your own apparel, click here. Using this link, for every shirt you sell, we’ll each earn $1 up to $100!

Ok. Done with all the ad stuff. Back to your regularly scheduled programming. And thanks for reading. 🙂

(thank you to pinterest for showing me the ad to bonfire in the first place, what would i do without you?)

moments // 2018

When thinking of a word to describe 2018, “whirlwind,” comes to mind. Good, bad, amazing, sad, confusing, disastrous, depressing, uplifting, it had it all. I spent time at home and I flew thousands of miles. I climbed mountains and I went to the ocean.

But most importantly, I grew. I became closer to God. I had more opportunities for outreach and evangelism. I came to know more about myself and those around me.

So here are some pictures. Well, not just some. A lot. I may or may not have put a lot of my favorite pictures in my post. (and currently it looks like WordPress is going to mess up the quality – oh well)

So don’t scroll too fast. (I mean you can if you want, but you’ll miss what I have to say about individual pictures and experiences.)

In May I went backpacking with my family, saw my first bear in the wild, and graduated from high school!

In July I had the privilege of being a summer camp counselor. This is how I described it on Instagram:

Two weeks serving. Some would say you’re just there to watch kids and make sure they stay out of trouble. But that isn’t it at all. It’s watching miracles. Seeing hearts touched. Becoming more and more a friend of my Father in heaven and seeing others do the same. It’s incredible. It’s an experience I wouldn’t trade for anything else.

(it feels really awkward quoting myself)

The summer camp I work at is actually very different from many others. It focuses on Biblical teaching, mission work, and practical skills. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun!

In between {vegan!} banana splits, swimming, singing, camp mail, and all the things we learn, it’s hard not to have fun!

I’m just gonna encourage you to check out that picture right below this. Between hiking, swimming, canoeing, and backpacking, I managed to get myself a some pretty rad Chaco tan lines, if I do say so myself. K, I’m proud of the weirdest things…

Speaking of backpacking, I went on three backpacking trips in 2018. Two with the fam, and one with friends.

Look at this little friend we found! This little snake was a beauty slithering in the middle of the trail. I can’t resist these things. Of course I had to hold him!

(Note – because I don’t want to get in trouble: Don’t go around picking up snakes. Or be aware of the danger if you do. Basically, if you get hurt, I’m not to blame. Your common sense is.)

Little Brother (who is now taller than me) carried some popcorn over about 4 miles of trail, and once he popped it, the whole camp came begging for some.

In November, our community was the center of a devastating natural disaster. We were gone for two weeks, and turned hard times into good times by visiting the ocean!

To finish off the year, I flew to Houston, TX to attend the annual GYC conference.

First off, I don’t like big cities at all. But…

The conference was amazing! I spent time with friends I hadn’t seen since July, learned how to form an effective public talk, and even got to see Pastor Ted Wilson speak live. That was an unexpected treat!

And that is my year. SO many miracles. SO many lessons learned. (Oh and I became an adult, like what…?!)

I like public speaking more and more. I love my campers. And Chaco tans. And canoeing. And I prefer trees and lakes over skyscrapers and cement any day.

But wherever God needs me is where I’ll be. And that is my goal this year. To listen to His voice and see what He has in store for me next!
