Still at Ridgecrest

The Lord seems to speak to me alot when I'm at Ridgecrest. He spoke to me here as a teenager and He's speaking to me now.

When I worked here in the summer of '98, he taught me about being content. I had just graduated from college and had no idea what was next for me. I had no prospects for a boyfriend much less a husband. I was registered for grad school in order to reach my career goal of being a child psychologist. However, the idea of getting a regular job, and a family, and a house with a white picket fence did not seem very appealing to me at the time.

So, I learned to be content with the idea. I got myself ready for a mundane life. I was okay with just me and God and no guy. My roommate, Gin, said, "You know you're going to meet THE ONE soon. That's how it goes. As soon as you're okay with not having your guy, you meet him." She was right. Brock and I were already close friends, but there was no romantic interest at the time. Two months after I got home, Brock and I got together. Within a year, we were married, and I began the biggest adventure of my life.

I wish I was there with you. I haven't been in two whole years! That's the longest I've ever been without going to Ridgecrest in my life. 1998 was the best summer ever. It feels like it was not that long ago. God had a purpose for all of us that summer. We probably still don't know His complete plan for us yet.

Kerry and I loved the show. We watched it with his family. We're praying that people will continue to be drawn to Christ because of it.

Love You,
