Witness Essentials

So I've been reading a book for about a year now haha (I hate reading) And I need to tell you guys about basically just Melanie. I'm about done with Dan Meyer's book Witness Essentials, Evangelism That Makes Disciples and it's seriously so good. I've always been surrounded by other believers and rarely get the chance to share the Gospel with people, which stinks, but this book has some amazing advise/steps to help facilitate those hard, and sometimes awkward, conversations. After reading it, I feel more comfortable about being vocal about my faith and perusing the active Christian live we are all called to. So pick up this book or ask me to borrow it or something because we need to be more vocal and this will help. I hope you guys that are at public schools will pick this up and change lives...or at least plant some seeds for the Holy Spirit to grow. Anyways, get your hands on this book.

#DanRocks Idk why I did that but it was funny at the time hahaha

Galatians 5:24

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.

Hillsong United is my Anthem

I have come to a huge decision today and like usual, Hillsong United was the background music.

1. With their album "Across the Earth" I made my faith my own and surrendered my heart to the Lord.

2. With their album "Aftermath" The Lord directed me to Calvin for the next chapter in my life.

3. With their album "Zion" I made the decision today that will change the next two years of my life. God has sent me a lot of amazing people to pray for me and advise me on this topic. I think God is calling me to use my time in a different way now. I'm devastated about what I am leaving behind but I am confident that God is leading me into something life changing. Something much bigger than just me.

So no Hillsong did not make the choices for me that you see above, but they have always been the sound in the background when God is moving in me.

Summer Summer Summer

I'm so looking forward to summer!!! I'm exited to see all my church friends, sit around a fire with good conversation, hit the disc golf course with my boy mike, chill at the dunes, blair music in my car with the windows down and shades on, etc. Summer rocks but I still have over a week left at school. I thought these last few weeks would fly by but they are taking forever, finding joy in making me crazy. But until then...I'll listen to this.
