Week #1 of Summer Camp

As the Covecrest family has been preparing for summer camp, it has been quite a crazy and humbling experience. It is an incredible blessing for me to be able to witness the fruits that have come from this family praying all year for the Life Teen Summer camps. It has only been 3 days of […]

“Haylee, will you allow me to make you a gift to others?”

Alright…. so I have some things to process. I’m not quite sure how this is going to look in this blog, but I am going to try anyways! This whole year I have been discerning what to do for the future. Yes I know… this is SOO AGAINST the whole idea of living in the […]

We are Dust that Is Loved By God

This Lenten season has been incredibly blessed for me so far. Emotional? Absolutely. But beyond words blessed. I feel like the Lord is about to do something powerful in my heart and in my relationship with Him because I am an absolute wreck right now. These last few days have been a test for me. […]

Primary Vocation

Today for missionary formation, I was asked to lead on Primary Vocation. Honestly, I was at first a bit disappointed. Of what? I have absolutely no idea… When Chris was handing out what we were doing with formation, I remember hearing Paul get “evangelization”. He’s an amazing evangelist. I heard Paola get “authenticity”. She’s one […]
