My adoration rests in my SAVIOR. I'm a former missionary and current coffee snob, living on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This blog is my blog for ministry, and little parts of my life you may find fun, inspiring, or crazy. - Kristin, 21.
last fall, the Lord blessed me with the privilege of loving and mentoring a truly amazing group of high school freshman and sophomore girls.

how gracious i am for the opportunity to travel near them on their walk with God, and be their sister and friend!!

can’t get over how fully i am blessed! :D

can’t wait to see my girls tonight! <3

when you can feel God molding you into the person you’re supposed to be…

the feeling is absolutely incredible.

this summer, i dedicated my life to Christ in a new way. i decided to dedicate my time to my church and actually live to glorify God.

since then, i’ve begun working and volunteering at my church.

i’m a full-time teacher for an amazing class of 16 two-year-olds at our state-licensed child care center, and a small group leader for the freshmen girls in our high school youth group, insideout.

today, i got to take my girls out bowling after group with a bunch of the other high school groups, and was approached by one of the head-leaders of insideout. we never really get to talk much, other than stuff concerning iso.

he wanted to talk about the fact that his wife had sat-in on the last 2 meetings. he said that the freshmen girl group is one of the most challenging, and when they needed to find a new leader for them, they wanted one who could truly reach these girls and provide support and true friendship and mentorship.

he said he was skeptical when i “pretty much came out of nowhere” and volunteered, but decided to put me in. he recently wanted to check on how things were going after me being in there a few months, so he sent in his wife.

she reported back nothing but splendid remarks, saying i was “amazing” and “so wonderful with the girls”. he said she was blown away.

i was so happy, and so thankful. being a small group leader has truly been a difficult, difficult task, and i’ve worked so hard. it’s so nice to hear that i’m doing a good job. God has just helped me through this so much, and i can really see Him softening these girls’ hearts, and preparing them for such purpose-filled lives.

it’s so rewarding, and i feel as though i am evolving into what God has planned for me. i’m so beyond blessed <3
