Over the past eight weeks, I have been blessed to witness the transformation of many lives here at camp, as well as at Life Teen Convention in Arizona. In the midst of the busyness of camp, I have taken time to reflect on the words Mother Assumpta shared with us […]

So for the past three days I have been tucked away in the suburbs of Atlanta isolated by a snow storm that struck earlier this week. A few years ago I spent a year serving in Saint Michael Minnesota, where as you can imagine it snowed a great deal. Unlike […]
Over the break, I took some time to find a few saint quotes for a Christmas gift I was giving to a friend, and I just wanted to share a few of them with you. Enjoy! Venerable Pope John Paul II “Love is never defeated” Saint Padre Pio “Prayer is […]

This week I have spent a great deal of time thinking about the parable of the Rich Young Man in the Gospel of Luke. In the midst of this parable, a young man meets Christ for possibly the first time, and Jesus asks him to sell all He owns and follow […]
So, it has been a little over a month since we arrived here at CoveCrest. It is hard to believe that we have already finished training and are diving more deeply into the life of radical hospitality and service. I love the life here, and am learning to appreciate LifeTeen’s […]
