crank it like a chainsaw // FLOW 2013 (picture overload)

well, it seems that i have not blogged in over a month. sorry ya'll.

but it has been a crazy/awesome/beautiful past week. if you remember this time (sort of) last year, i went on a youth retreat with my church, called the FLOW. well i had the opportunity to go again last week! this was the sixth year that i went and the second year as a leader. it was amazing!

God was working through the youth and the leaders and it was so awesome to watch!

we also learned a new dance to wake us up in the mornings.

i also got to reconnect with some old friends, who are also blogger friends, that came as well. what was very cool about this reconnection is the fact that i have known these two for a good majority of my life! becca and ilene, ya'll were a huge encouragement to me! 
(check out their camp recaps here and here)

also, we went to a different  place than last year: white water express in ducktown, tn. this was very i had my first FLOW and it was so great and very nostalgic to be back to the place where my spiritual growth jumpstarted. :)

and now...... a picture overload 
sorry not sorry. :)
