Been Gone for Jesus

Learning

Yes, I know, it has been way to long since I have posted. Sorry for the wait if any of you guys were waiting. First things first…..I was gone for Jesus. Sounds funky, huh? Well, I attended Centrifuge which is an amazing camp. It is a church camp which focuses on you learning about Jesus without pushing it. I got to participate in tons of crazy fun activities and learn about Jesus. I definitely learned a lot in that one week I was there. I am just glad I was able to have more questions answered and able to grow in my love for Christ. I also came to the realization that I want to be a Centrifuge staffer when I hit 20 years old! I feel like that would be the perfect summer job for me! It has great benefits too. Next year, I get to be a leader when the youth goes. I am sooooo excited! I get to actually sit back and watch the kids learn and grow right in front of me! After Centrifuge I had to work some orientations for my college and that was a crazy rewarding experience. I got to learn more about my school and help others figure out what to do, where to go, etc. I even made sure it was fun 😉 I have also been able to grow closer to my other team members. Tomorrow I have to work another one and I am genuinely excited about it.

Lately I have had a mishap happen. My roommate, Ashton, texted me and told me that she was not going to be attending the college anymore, therefore, I need to find another roommate. She said she would keep her spot in the room until I could find one. She was not mean about it. She just saw a different future for herself. So here I am freaking out about not finding a roommate because it is so late in the summer and everyone I know has already contacted their roommates. I was extremely nervous about having some random person getting thrown off the waiting list and into my room. Well….today, Ashton texted me and asked if I found one yet and I had to tell her no. She texted back immediately and told me “Thank goodness because I decided to stay”. UM. HELLO. I am one happy camper!!!!! All stress was taken away from me in that moment and the only person I knew I needed to thank was God. He definitely blessed me in that moment. He made that work together for my good!

On that note, I am going to go and read my new book. Bye everyone 🙂

 

My Expected Introduction

Yes, this is my first time blogging. I am so completely new to all of this, but just like all of you guys, I will learn eventually. My name is Alley and I am a complicated girl. That’s probably what makes my life so crazy and beautiful. I will not be updating all the time, but I will update from time to time. I will share my thoughts, opinions, rants, any crazy event, etc.  I hope you guys will enjoy reading up on all that I go through or do from day-to-day. 

Now a little about myself….I am in an amazing relationship with Jesus and my boyfriend, Caleb, as well. I have my moments, but at the end of the day I still serve Him. I am going to be a freshman in college and I am so excited to experience something new. I read a lot and tend to take loads of interest in other people’s lives……no….not nosy and up-in-your-biz kinda thing. More like, tell me all about your dreams, goals, things that make you mad, things that make you happy, your passions, etc. I can be selfish a lot, but I can also be one of the most caring people as well. I have strong beliefs in feminism and rape culture. So yes, I will talk about that from time to time, but it’s what makes me unique and well, me. I hope to die being a big encouragement to people and to have helped them learn self-freedom. I could go on and on telling you guys about myself, but I think I’d rather have you guys figure it out.
