I’m grateful for the opportunity to champion and cheer my kids on in life. I’m grateful for my wife who pushed me to go on our Middle School camp here at Lone Tree Adventure Camp in New Mexico, though I just returned from overseas. I’m really glad I came.
Not only am I a witness to the work that the Lord is doing, as He is shaping and calling hearts to choose Him as the ultimate. He is at work within relationships: healing, bonding, connecting and encouraging – I see it all around me. The activities and teaching have been incredible! Camps are opportunities that create mile markers in our student’s life and our faith journeys. Maybe you got to attend a camp when you were growing up, do you remember some lessons from that experience?
I’ve seen the benefit of this for years. I’m grateful to serve on a staff with fantastic Youth Pastors, leaders and outstanding volunteers.
I’m also grateful for the opportunity to hang out with my son. Today, was extreme bonding day as we tackled different adventures. See some pics below. Though I’m aware that you can’t build a relationship upon shared experiences alone, you can certainly leverage them to foster a better relational connection.That’s a great reminder for every parent.
Don’t just enjoy experiences together – leverage them to grow your relationship and open up deepening connections and conversations.
