This weekend I went as a sponsor on a youth girls' weekend. It was a great time on several levels.
One - I got to do something I haven't had much opportunity the last 6 years - participating in an overnight youth trip. When you are married to the youth minister and have young children, you don't really get to do any activities that go longer than 8pm!
Two - I got to hear some great music - Natalie Grant, KJ52, Hawk Nelson, and Ayesshia Woods! This was definitely an ecletic mix and even though I'm 35 years old, the noise level didn't bother me at all. I love the excitement that only teenagers can have!
Three - I heard some great messages that while geared for teenagers, also had some nuggets of wisdom for this mom!
Four - I got to spend time visiting with a friend on this trip that I don't often have much time with!
Five - I had time to visit with girls that I usually only see for a few minutes each week.
Thanks Lance for asking me to go - I wouldn't have volunteered on my own, but I'm really glad I went!
