  •          Just four hours north of my hometown is one square mile that could very well exist in another world.   When I arrived alongside my youth ministry in this other world, in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District, I had no idea what to expect. We were scheduled to help City Impact...

  • This August, my family and I took a seven-day cruise to Alaska. Now I know what you're thinking, we went to Alaska to see wildlife, glaciers, and snow in the middle of August. Are you nuts?

Last summer I went to San Diego, California to visit my Aunt Terri with my boyfriend, Kenny. I have been to California twice before this vacation...

I never figured on learning something about myself in the process, but the trip turned into much more than a race for me. It turned into a valuable experience.            ...

  • As the plane flew over water and edged more and more towards the runway of LaGuardia Airport, a heightened sense of anticipation began to set in; I’d been waiting for this moment for nearly a year and couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that it was actually happening.  As the plane moved...

  •  “The day has finally arrived!” I exclaimed to myself as I drove to the airport. I was flying to Cancun, Mexico. It’s my first time there. I am nervous, scared, anxious, excited and beyond happy. During the flight I keep trying to imagine what the moment is going to be like when I arrive and I see...
