When I have a lot of work to do I will sometimes take my trailer to a campground 18 miles from home and set up shop. There’s no WiFi so I stay on task with my writing and enjoy the space. I treat it like a little retreat house. Simple. Full of comfort items. Peaceful. My Max is in storage for the winter so I’m working in my guest bedroom which somehow gives me the same feel. I am counting the days though until I get my rolling retreat house back! For me owning a trailer is about more than camping. It’s a place to go even at home. @golittleguy@golibertyoutdoors#retreat#mobileoffice#myspace#tinyliving#trailerlife#aroomofherown#getaway#findyouraway#workspace
I had this full-circle moment with the Lord as we sang “Reckless Love” at @nxtonline#Breakaway2018 this weekend. I remembered back 18 years ago to a frosty January weekend when I went on a high school youth retreat.
I grew up going to church every Sunday, but I went to that retreat with middle fingers to the sky having lost all faith in God due to the bullying and depression I had been wrestling years prior.
My normal youth leader wasn’t able to attend the retreat, so a guest leader stepped in. He told me about his friend’s suicide and I saw myself in the story. He patiently answered every question my anger fired his way. At the end of the event, he uttered a simple phrase over me in prayer: “I see the God in you.” I’m not sure what exactly happened in that moment, but all of a sudden I believed. All of a sudden, I had the insatiable desire to read the Bible and pray and meet this God for myself rather than through empty traditions and routines. I grew up catholic, and while I would disagree with many things theologically at this point, I can’t deny the impact of that moment for me. How much I needed to know I had someone beside my parents believing in me. Someone to show me my life was Christ’s to use, not mine to take.
Flash forward to this past weekend, and now I’m a youth leader trying to do all that for my students. I have been with them since freshmen year (most are juniors) and have heard many of their painful and traumatic experiences. But honestly, I see so much potential in each of them. To hear them pray, to see them worship, to see them strive to live for God: I know one day they are going to live in the fruit of those moments. I know firsthand how God can turn a troubled teen into a future youth leader.
In this moment of worship this weekend, I began to see the generational impact. Me pouring into them, leads to them pouring into others, and so on, and so on, and so on. How many eternities will be impacted, lives changed, families healed, etc?
Only God knows for sure. But the possibilities are limitless.

My thumbs are swollen and sore from hours of removing the very thin plastic-like skin off gigantic San Pedro cactuses. But there is SO MUCH beauty + sacredness in preparing our own Medicine, all for the upcoming retreat. I am singing mantras and whispering prayers into it as I go. 🌵

What better way to start the day than waking up at 6am and training Muay Thai on the beach? ...
Agnes (at 50 years old) has more energy and drive than most people half her age. Her passion and love for life is contagious and we are so happy she came with her friends from Chicago to this retreat. ..
That’s the beauty of these trips. Sure, the environment is beautiful and the training is great, but it’s the people who really make it all worth while!
