Passion 2017 Will Be Life-Changing

There will be thousands of college-aged people that are all seeking one thing: Jesus.

Passion 2017 Will Be Life-Changing
Passion 2016

If you have never heard of Passion, you are missing out. Passion is a conference for 18 to 25 year olds who are wanting to experience God. It takes places in the beginning of January each year. During the conference, there are sessions for big groups, smaller breakout sessions, and massive worship sessions. There will be thousands of college-aged people that are all seeking one thing: Jesus. Here are specific reasons why I am pumped to be going back.

1. It was one of my favorite experiences while I was in my youth group back home.

I was able to go during January of my senior year. I was amazed at how it felt to be surrounded by thousands of people my age worshipping Christ. Lives were changed and chains were broken and I can't wait to see what Jesus has in store for us this year.

2. Family Groups.

One of my favorite parts of the conference was being split into family groups. You get put into a group of people that you've most likely never met and it is awesome. I was able to meet people all the way from Michigan to Texas to Georgia.

3. The conference is being held at The Georgia Dome.

This huge conference being held in The Dome gives every Georgian such big heart and boost of pride. And even though I'm not originally from Georgia, I understand how important it is to the people that live here. (Seriously, these people can't stop talking about it.)

4. It gives you hope.

Many people have lost hope in our generation. People rarely see the good in us and nothing gives me more hope than knowing that there will be thousands (literally thousands) of people that are there pursuing Christ. It's such an unreal experience; goodness, I can't wait to go back.

5. The speakers that are going to be there are great spiritual leaders.

Louie and Shelley Giglio. Beth Moore. Francis Chan. John Piper. Levi Lusko. Katherine and Jay Wolf. Christine Caine.

6. The worship leaders.

Passion Band. Crowder. Chris Tomlin. Matt Redman. Hillsong United. Christie Nockles.

7. My expectations are high and I know I won't be disappointed.

I'm expecting this conference to be life changing to many people, myself included. I think God loves our expectations for Him to be high because it means that we are excited, involved, and waiting for Him to do something amazing.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
