  •     Last summer I found myself discontent and unsatisfied with the current state of mind. Living in a small, rural town in northern Georgia I often find myself disoriented from the general interests and beliefs of those around me. Not that they’re not good people, its just that when one is...

  • My journey started in April. My Young Life leader at announced that there was a chance to go to Frontier Ranch in for our summer camp. Once I heard about the trip, it was a done deal.

  • Just above the horizon you can see the spike point of the new York city tower. This tower is none other than the Empire State building. This Famous Sky scraper is a magician of its own.

  • “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.”-François RabelaisThese words are so often quoted in travel magazines and young adult novels, but are seldom understood while read from one’s couch or lawn chair. From the comfort of my own bed, the impact of those words and the potential of the Great Perhaps fell...

  • It was a 24 hour flight from Maryland to Ilo Ilo City, Philippines. It was how my family and I spent our Christmas, which was also my older sister’s birthday. But it was a dream we had all shared since we were little, when we made hundreds of situations where we met our Lola, or grandmother.
