Today I just finished my first semester of junior year and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
To conclude the semester, I took out some of my Wyldlife girls to dinner and oh my gosh I just need to brag for a moment.
Being a leader isn’t easy or cheap. You get unexpected calls and you get asked to take your girls somewhere or come get them or if you can go get food with them at the most inconvenient time and as much as you want to say no, you end up saying yes.
Sometimes you feel like what you are doing isn’t making an impact and this is where I was at with leading. I didn’t feel like what I have been doing for my girls has made any impact but tonight changed it all.
I picked up my girls and they told me that they were treating me to dinner at a restaurant and to a dutch bros (my favorite). They even tried to set me up with our waiter HAHA. They were letting me know that they want to start reading the Bible next semester and are willing to stick to a plan.
When I dropped one of them off, she was telling me how she started paying attention in her Old Testament class because I was taking the same class as her and she was actually interested. We talked for an hour about our favorite stories in the Old Testament and how it is so interesting to learn all of the events and history.
As I left both of them, they ran up to my car and said I love you and you have to let us know when you get home safely tomorrow.
These girls are 12 and are actually being impacted by me just being there. I’M SO HAPPY THAT JESUS IS WORKING YAYAY.
