My awesome roommate (and best friend) took me to see the musical Wicked for my birthday. It's playing in downtown L.A. at the Pantages theatre. A lot of people I know have seen it and raved about it, so I had pretty high expectations. The super cool thing is that I was not disappointed. It was FABULOUS. It leaves in September, and I'm hoping that I'll get to see it again before it's gone. If you ever get the chance to see it I highly recommend it!

I feel like my life is headed toward a fork in the road. So many things about my life have changed, or are getting ready to change. And I must admit that I'm feeling a little lost. For the first time in a long time, I really have no idea what direction I should head in. Should I go back to school? Should I stay in California? Should I sell everything I own, and move to Europe? I feel like I did when I was 18 and trying to figure out what "God's Will" for my life was. For those of you who don't know, that's Christian talk for "What the heck does God want me to do?!" I thought I had that figured out, but here I am...wondering. I really believe that I have a purpose on this earth. And I don't want to screw it up! Part of me just wants to focus, and figure it out...another part of me is really at peace with the whole thing. I feel a little like Tony in "West Side Story"... Something's Coming!

Summer Camp 08

I spent last week up in the mountains with 100 teenagers...and YES I'm still alive! I had a great week at camp, and I got to see God do some amazing things in these young peoples lives. One night the camp speaker sent all of the kids out to go "Walk with God". They had to remain silent, and try to hear God's voice. Then everyone came back together, and a few of them shared what God had spoken to them. The cool thing was when he asked the kids to raise their hands if they'd gotten something from God. I was shocked when about 75% of them raised their hands! I just wasn't expecting that many kids to respond. It just makes me realize even more, that God is always ready to reveal himself to us.

Here are some photos from camp...
