God is at work!

Well Acquire the Fire was AWESOME!! God worked in so many ways and it felt so good to be a part of it! I love my youth group a little more every day and I want SO badly for them to understand that for as much as I love them, God loves them a million times more! There was a drama that we watched at Acquire the Fire and all of us were moved to tears. Basically, it builds up to a VERY intense moment where a teenager is about to commit suicide and before she can, her friend puts his arms around her and starts singing, "Oh, how He loves us." It was SO moving and awesome and the whole building just started singing, "Oh, how He loves us, oh, how He loves us." And HE DOES!! I thought by teaching the youth group, I would be helping them grow in God (and I hope I am), but at the same time, I'm growing so much and learning so much about myself and my relationship with God. He is awesome and I am in awe of Him. Speaking of which, we have our outreach project this Sunday and if you could pray for us, we would appreciate it! We're going to hand out food to the homeless and the kids are nervous about this because it's out of their comfort zone and mine too! I've done it before, but please pray that the right people come into our path and that we have the words to share with them. I'm excited to see what God does through the kids!! In other areas of life, there's not much going on. Nick has planted grass and has been lovingly tending too it ;) It's his pride and joy right now because it FINALLY started growing! I'm already started garage saling and have found, not one, not two, but THREE awesome deals. I got an old trunk, a dresser and a wooden chest for $10 each!! My house will be fully decorated before too long! I'm going to an auction tomorrow and can't wait to see what they have as long as it doesn't rain, of course. Easter Sunday (and Brooke's birthday) was GREAT!! We got to see some family that came down from Missouri and that was fun as usual! I love being around all the grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! It makes for a great day. Hope life finds you all doing well!
