I Miss Writing

So. I’ve not written for a while. And I miss it. A lot. So what’s happened over the past two months?

I held my second HSA get-together. Another grand time. I got to meet some new friends and visit some old. I did a lot better this year with my people skills, so I’m rather proud of myself. 😉

The very next weekend I spent in Columbus, Ohio at the Dare 2 Share Blaze conference with some awesome friends. It was an amazing learning experience. Starfield was there to lead worship and that was an absolute blast. I laughed, I cried. Garrett, Kate and I went to the youth leaders’ breakout session which was good. I was very happy to be able to do that. My favorite thing that I learned was relational vs. relentless evangelism. Some people — like myself — are relational. We’ll get to know someone and try to let out lives be the witness. Others are relentless. They’ll tell anyone and everyone about Christ without any form of relationship. The point was that we should have both under our belts. It encouraged me to work on my boldness and people skills, but still maintain my relational tendencies. I came away from that weekend exhausted but ready to do it again in a heartbeat.

Then a few weekends later I went to the Ohio Winter Rendezvous. Got to see and meet even more friends. I spent most of my time in a corner between the snack table and window. I got the best cell phone reception there. 😀 I pined for home and a person back home, but managed to have a little bit of fun. 😉 A big thank you again to Mark for not letting me sit and be lost the entire time. Thanks as well to Jason and Ben and Jamie for sitting and talking to me, taking my mind off the waits between conversations.

Some things I’ve learned about myself lately: I am capable of feeling extremely girly/feminine. I can miss people so much I cry at night. I can smell things that I associate with people in my dreams. I have conflicting personality traits. I am becoming way more comfortable with public speaking.

Hopefully, I’ll have a bigger blog post of more substance up soon. Hope you all are doing well. 🙂

  1. I had a great time talking with you too Kayla. Even though you insisted in “maintaining a status, rather than updating it”. 😉

  2. Evangelism works best in a relational way. There are times when truth can be proclaimed without an existing relationship but I think we may overdo that a little.

  3. You’re like a little sister, Kayla. Was my pleasure.
