Can't Break the Habit

Since I've been in the habit of getting up early every morning and going all day long, I couldn't just break that pattern today. I woke up early and began unpacking and washing clothes. I also started cleaning because my parents are coming into town this afternoon. Maybe in a couple of days I can truly begin relaxing.

I love being home though. After not being here for a month, it was an amazing feeling to open the door to HOME last night.

Brock's Parents' Week

We had a great time this week with Brock's parents. We went to Seaside. It's a great community where they filmed The Truman Show. We had some great cake there!

We went to some wonderful places to eat. We ate at a local Irish restaurant and two local seafood places. One place was right on the water and one was at a marina. We had good Thai food. There were 13 Thai places within a 3 mile radius. We counted them! We found the best one in town.

Brock's mom is parasailing right now as I type this! What a great week!

Difficult on the Psyche

We have been at camps each week for about a month now. There is one thing that I've noticed and remember from last year. It's hard to go from Friday of one week to Monday of the next week. On Friday, everyone treats you almost like a rock star at camp (in the pseudo world of camp, everyone onstage is equal to a movie star by the end of the week).

However, on Monday, you feel as if the students are saying, "Prove yourself to me!" On Tuesday, they are still checking you out.

We've noticed that on Wednesday morning, there is a turning point. By Wednesday night, the crowd is all about you. Last night, there were grown men jumping up and down asking Brock to use them onstage.

It's a funny thing how that works. At the beginning of every week, I think this group is not like the last one. They don't like us as much. By Wednesday night, I'm thinking that they love us and I love them too! It's a strange phenomenon that is difficult on the psyche.

Prayer in the Morning

I'm reading a book by David Cho, preacher of the largest church in the world. This is another book of his on prayer. He is an amazing person of prayer. I can tell that he is passionate about his readers (me) developing an awesome prayer life. In this book, he talks about getting up at 5am every morning to spend time in prayer with the Lord. He says that he doesn't set his alarm clock, the Lord just wakes him up almost as if to say, "It's time for you to talk with Me!"

After I read that, it seems as if the Lord has been waking me up early every morning in order to spend time with Him. Normally at camp, I just try to survive because the schedule is so hectic. I may get around to having some time with the Lord in the afternoon or whatever. Pastor Cho talks about the importance of praying first thing in the morning.

I've always prayed in the mornings like in the shower and stuff. Now, I'm making sure I have an extended time in prayer and Bible study as well. If I wait until the afternoon, I may not get around to it. Also, I've thought that I get soooo much time with the Lord at camp. We have two services a day and a seminar. However, there is a difference in corporate worship and that personal time with Him.

It's been really cool! I have more energy all day even though I'm getting up a little earlier.

Brock's Parents Visit

We just got finished performing a show here in Panama City Beach, FL at Big Stuff camp. I'm actually sitting backstage typing this right now. After we pack up, we will go eat lunch at our favorite Israeli place. Then, we will drive to Ft Walton Beach, FL to start a week of camp at SuperWow there.

I'm excited because Brock's parents are coming to Ft Walton this afternoon. They are going to be with us this week at camp. They'll get to see Brock perform some of his new illusions and they'll get to hear him speak. Plus, we'll take them to some great restaurants. They enjoy the art of eating and preparing food as much as Brock does!

For the first time in my life, I'm a little homesick. Normally, I don't have many friends at home, but now, I do. I miss them. I'm not a good phone talker, so it is difficult for me to keep up with everyone while I'm on the road. During the week, I'm so busy with camp that I forget about everything else. Now, I have time to think and I realize that I miss my friends at home.

I had a dream last night. The reason that this dream was significant is that it took place in the house that I live in now. Until last night, my dreams ALWAYS took place in the house that I grew up in even though I haven't lived there in 15 years. I guess that my home in Nashville is truly home to me!

Fun Day

Today is going to be a fun day. We are going snorkeling with the SuperWow staff. Then, we'll eat somewhere tonight and go to an improv comedy act. It's going to be refreshing!

Friday, June 22, 2007


Camp is so draining. Brock speaks and does magic 3 or 4 times a day. Did you know that 25% of your physical exertion is your brain? Well, our brains are on overdrive. Also, 30 minutes onstage is equal to an eight hour work day physically. We've been onstage an average of 2 hours a day. This does not include the times that we are talking with people before and after each show.

When Brock speaks to the adults in their seminar, he tells them that you have three gauges in your life: PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL. You must make sure that they are full or else you are vulnerable to sin. Honestly, right now, I'm less than half full on all three of those gauges. I can feel it too. It's going to be difficult for me to go today and be "on." When everyone gets on your nerves, you know that it's YOU.

I need to make sure that I do whatever it takes to refill those areas in my life this weekend. That's the only way that I'll be able to make it through the next week!

Pseudo World

Camp is like a different world. When I am here, I cannot think about anything else. I want to call people from home and talk with them. However, I feel like I'm on "go" all the time.

Brock did call one of our friends the other day and put her on speaker phone. She was in the car with a couple of our other friends. It was fun to hear them all. I miss them! It's hard to believe that other people are continuing their days and lives.

Still, life goes on in this pseudo world of camp. We perform and speak at all of the morning services. Then, Brock speaks at a seminar for an hour. At night, we go on for about 20 minutes. Usually, in the afternoons, we crash! It's fun though. Tomorrow is the last day of this camp.

Little Dan's Adventures at Disney World

When we went to Disney World, we took a bobble head that we acquired at the previous camp around with us. We had different people take pictures with him and all kinds of stuff. Little Dan got his picture taken much more than us at Disney. Watch this slide show to see:

Superwow Camp

Yesterday went well. Shannon and Jessica worked really hard and got things done. We performed our show, ate lunch at our favorite Israeli place, and headed to Ft. Walton. Then, we had to pull over and place tarps all over the bed of our truck because it looked like rain ahead. It rained on us slightly on the way over. When we got to the venue, it was about to pour. We quickly unloaded everything under the covering at the loading dock just before it began to dump. We definitely got wet though!

I love SuperWow! Even though we are so different and have so many special requirements, they accommodate us. We are such a fit with them.

Please pray for us extra this morning through Thursday morning. Brock is speaking those three mornings. Pray for God to work in people's lives and revival to come in individuals and churches.

Hard Schedule

We just performed at Big Stuff in Panama City, FL. Now, we are going to eat really quickly and head over to SuperWow in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. We begin there tonight! I'm beginning to feel a little tired of people and tired of camp. That's not good, because we are just beginning. Pray for supernatural strength. Also, pray that the students at SuperWow are really receptive to Brock right from the start. Thanks for praying...we need it out on the road.

Fun at Disney World

We had such a blast at Disney World! Jessica said that she was scared of roller coasters, but she road everything that we did and loved it! Our favorite rides were Everest and the Tower of Terror. They are more than a ride. They're an experience!

We also went to the light parade and fireworks at the Magic Kingdom. It was amazing! They would change the lighting of the castle and fireworks would explode to the beat of the music. Disney does everything so well.

The best part of the day was Dan's adventures. At the last camp we were at, they had extra bobble heads that they had made of the director, Dan. Somehow we acquired one. So, we took Dan everywhere in Disney World. He had his picture with people who worked at the park, in front of the castle, on the monorail, all over! We took way more pictures of Dan than we did ourselves. It was so funny! One guy said, "In a way, I want to know, but in a way I don't," as he walked by us snapping a picture of Dan the bobble head. I'll try to put up some pictures of it tomorrow.

Brock spoke about holiness the other day at camp and it convicted me. He told about how we treat the symptoms instead of going to the root of the problem. He used the story about his wasp sting as an illustration. Whenever he broke out in hives and was itching all over, he wanted to go the the pharmacy and get some salve to put on it. However, he needed to go to the emergency room because he was dying and didn't even know it. The hives were just a symptom of what he had...what he had was poison on the inside.

He went on to say that sin is like this. It kills us from the inside out. We need to go to the root of the problem. The only way to do that is to allow Jesus to cleanse us.

At one point, Brock mentioned that he knew many ministers in which their lives are ruined due to sin. When I began to think about friends of mine that have fallen this year, I broke. The Lord broke me. I was so broken over the sin that has come in and destroyed peoples' families and ministries.

Brock was so serious and almost harsh when he spoke about sin. That's because sin is not something to play with. We need to take it VERY seriously.

Friday, June 15, 2007


Well, we finished our toughest week of camp for the summer. This one was tough because Brock had to speak and perform illusions both morning AND night. It was so draining but good.

Now it's time to celebrate! We are going to eat at a wonderful Cuban restaurant today. We're even going to get the bread pudding for dessert. It's called the Columbia and was built in 1905.

Then, we are going to see the Pirates III movie. Tomorrow, we are going to ride the Pirates of the Caribbean ride! We scored 4 tickets to Disney World! We found out that we got the tickets on Wednesday afternoon. Brock wanted me to keep it a surprise from Shannon and Jessica. I told him that he better tell them soon, because I cannot keep a surprise in very long. He decided to tell them from the stage that night. Shannon looked at me and said, "Really?" I confirmed it because you never know when Brock is just saying something random. We go to Disney World tomorrow!!!!

Lakeland, FL

This camp that Brock is speaking at is in Lakeland, FL. I was actually born here and we then moved to Daytona Beach when I was 3 years old. However, all of my family besides my immediate family still live here. My mom flew in from Texas this week, so she is here as well.

It's been great to have them around. I was able to go and eat my grandma's great biscuits. Also, my mom came to the service last night and she along with some other family are coming tonight. It's been fun!

Sharing With the Ministers' Wives

Last night, the camp had a special time with the ministers' wives. The camp director's wife had asked me to come and share a little. All afternoon, I thought about what to share. I really felt like the Lord wanted me to share this story: After only being married 3 months, we came home one day to find that our trailer with all of our gear in it for this ministry had been stolen. When I asked the Lord what to do, He told me, "Pray specifically and I will show you my power." So, I began to tell Him what we needed that week. We had zero money and we needed $545 for rent. We also needed $50 for groceries. Therefore, I prayed for $595. The only thing we had booked for that month was that Brock was going to fill in for his dad preaching at his church. They were going to pay us $150. That was so much less than what we needed. However, when we were done at the church that Sunday, Brock handed me a bunch of checks that people had given him. I hadn't even told Brock about what I was praying for. I counted up the checks and it added up to $595 exactly!

There is so much more to the story, but I felt that was all that I needed to share. After that, the leader of the night asked people to share any supernatural experiences that we've had with the Lord. I began to think about which story I wanted to share as others were speaking. I felt as if the Lord was gently saying, "You are done." He didn't want me to share anymore. I think that if I shared anything else, it would be out of the wrong motivations. So, I held my tongue. Those of you that know me know that this was very difficult for me because I'm a talker. Plus, I love to tell stories about my adventures with the Lord. I felt so happy that I was obedient to the Lord though! It feels so good to do what the Lord wants you to do even if you don't know exactly why He wants you to do it a certain way.

New Camp

Yesterday was a difficult day for me. I needed to run some errands in the morning. It is always difficult to do that on the road. It seemed like everything that could go wrong did. Then, Brock, Shannon, and Jessica were waiting on me to leave. I was an hour late because I ran into so many snags.

I finally made it and we went to a new camp. I think that I was really nervous about this new camp, too. All of the other camps that we are doing this summer, we have done before. This camp is new AND Brock is the speaker for the entire week. That means that he speaks in the morning and night. That's a lot of pressure!

Last night ended up going fine, though. We got there on time despite my delay. Everyone is so nice and I can tell that it's going to be a good week. Pray for us this week. Pray that lives will be changed and revival will occur.

Surprise at the Airport

We picked our intern for the summer up from the airport today. This is how I greeted Jessica.

Rip Tide

Yesterday, after our show, we were eating lunch at a place right on the beach. As we were waiting for our food, we heard a guy yelling, "Help!" Everyone looked over and began searching the beach with their eyes trying to find where the cry for help was coming from. Before I knew it, Shannon said that Brock was out there. While we were all looking around, Brock ran out on the beach, got in the water, and was swimming to the drowning victim.

Luckily, the guy was on a float, so that prolonged his rescue time. However, another guy had jumped in to try and save him and he was drowning. They were caught in what is called a rip tide. The panhandle of Florida is known for having bad ones. In fact, 3 people have drowned in the last two weeks in this area because of rip tide.

Brock has been through this before, so I was not worried about him. He once saved two people's lives caught in a rip current in the ocean at dusk. At that time, we were the only ones on the beach, so it was a lot scarier.

Brock was able to help the guy on the float get hooked up to a jet ski who then, towed him in. Brock along with 4 other guys formed a line to the shore. Planting their feet, they were able to pull the other guy out of the dangerous current. If you are planning to go to the beach for vacation, study up on rip tides. They can be fatal!

Relaxing on the Beach

We've had such a fun week this week. We had friends come down to hang out with us. Plus, we've hung out with some new friends that we've met here at camp. We have eaten Israeli food, Moroccan food, and lots of seafood. We went to one place called Old Bay Steamers and got a whole big plate of crab legs and gigantic shrimp. It was incredible.

The weather has been perfect. We've taken walks on the beach everyday. Yesterday, we laid on a float in the pool for a couple of hours. It's been so fun. This week, we only have two shows compared to our average of 9 shows per week for the rest of the summer. Therefore, we are taking advantage of the time to relax on the beach. We might as well...we are here anyway!

Mexico Trip

After Spirit West Coast last week, we went with some friends down into Baja, Mexico. We stayed at this incredible Spanish style house with tile floors and a courtyard area. The house was sitting on a hill overlooking the ocean. It was beautiful.

The guys road dirt bikes everyday. In fact, one day, they road some of the trail that was going to be run the following weekend in the Baja 500 race. We met them at a ranch out in the middle of nowhere for lunch and brought them some fuel.

The best part was laying on the hammocks at the house overlooking the beach. I was in heaven sitting there reading or listening to my ipod. The tacos were a close second for the best thing. We had a lot of tacos. Let me tell you, tacos like the ones in Mexico cannot be found here in the states! I'll try to put up some pictures from that trip tomorrow.

The Living Water

We are at Big Stuf right now. It's a camp in Panama City Beach, FL and Daytona Beach, FL. We will be here on and off all summer.

We have a new illusion that is incredible! It's a great ministry tool and the idea was given to Brock from the Lord. It's hard to explain, but Brock uses an illusion to show that if you drink from the Living Water, you will never thirst again. We've only practiced it one time before.

I woke up one morning last week and felt like the Lord was saying that we needed to perform this illusion at Big Stuf camp. It doesn't go in the particular show that we are doing here, but Brock decided to do it yesterday anyway. It was indescribable. At one point, some of the students were so moved that they jumped up out of their seats. By the end of the illusion, everyone was up out of their seats!

Then, the director of the camp came onstage and said that he couldn't believe how the Lord worked. He and Brock had not spoken at all about the show content yet what the director was about to say next was about water and the Living Water. It was an amazing connection! The Lord is amazing! Not only did the new illusion go so much better than we imagined, but it flowed with the message of the camp as well.

We saw a Cirque De Soleil show here in Nashville last night called Delerium. It was great! It's so creative and beautiful to watch. The focus of this show was dreams. They talked (well sung) about that time when you are in between reality and dreamland. They tried to coerce us into the dreamland side. I really started thinking about that time when you sleep. I mean I spend 1/3rd of my life in dreamland! Too bad I cannot remember it.

We try to see as many live shows as we can so that we can learn. Some of them are excellent and some are not so good. This one was well done.

Pray for us today and tomorrow. We leave town today for the summer. We do our first show of the summer tomorrow morning, so remember us!
