Click the italicized headline for details and location! There's a reason Camp Fontanelle is my favorite place. You'll have to visit to find out why. (Also, I'm working there on the fall weekends, so come by and say hello!)

Rules to Live By — written in my journal in 2014 and posted on my bedroom wall since.
Be kind and sweet to everyone you come across. Walk and breathe with grace, purpose, and empowerment. Attempt to slow down on over thinking Wear soft clothing. Listen intently to the words others say. Listen to God. Pray not for things, but for wisdom and courage. Be tough minded but tender hearted. Treat your body as a temple for your spirit. Allow balance between work and rest. Be comfortable in your situation and imperfections.
