The days are longer, the sun is hotter, the grass is already getting brown and crunchy in my back pasture and the soil is beginning to crack.
Summer days are here again. (Technically for those of us in Texas, summer started in March, but no need to press the point!) It’s summer and that means…I’m off to work at camp!
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working at a Christian youth camp for the past several years. This summer (my sixth!), I’m going to be serving as their head wrangler, which means that I have pretty much the awesomest job at camp! I get to play with kids and work with horses and serve alongside some of the most incredible people in the world. First and foremost, I have the opportunity to share Christ’s love with all the campers who come to my horsemanship classes!
Unfortunately, this means that my blog posts are going to become somewhat scarce and far between during the summer months. During the week, we put aside our phones and laptops and focus on our purpose for being at camp – serving the kids and showing them Christ! :) I’ll still have internet connection on the weekends and I’ll be able to respond to emails then.
So, don’t go away! I’ll be sure to sneak back here every now and then as I have time on the weekends and leave a little surprise for you! Two book reviews are waiting, as well as stories from my summer adventures, perhaps a Villainy 101 post or two, and perhaps… if I’m feeling especially generous… I’ll even share an excerpt from my current work-in-progress Song of Leira!
Over the summer weekends, I plan to finish my rewrite of Song of Leira and get it all polished up before the ACFW conference in the fall.
For now, I’m off! As always, your prayers are greatly appreciated for the staff, and the campers, and the weather (no more droughts, please!). But most of all, please pray that this would be a fruitful summer. That the love of Christ would be evident in all of the staff, and that the Lord would do a mighty work in the hearts of all the campers!
Sneak peak at what I get to do during the summer. This was a rules video we made last summer to remind the campers not to bully… My horse and I were only too excited to get to be in it! :)
