This summer I volunteered at Royal Family Kids Camp, a camp geared toward foster kids. This week was one of the most exhausting, yet fulfilling, weeks I have ever spent investing into the lives of kids. In the longest post I have ever written, I want to share with you this incredible journey that taught […]
The last couple weeks at Learn for Life were really cool. As we reviewed C and A for the second time, I was able to see some improvement in the students’ reading. I had heard that Learn for Life also runs during the school year, and I was able to get a little bit of […]
Usually I’ve been posting these summer updates Wednesday and Saturdays, but I was driving all over the place yesterday, so I’m sharing with you today.
First part of this post happened after week 4 of Learn for Life. A whole weekend at Lifest! This was the first time I was going to be […]
This week was a great week, partly due to the fact that I was leaving for the weekend, which I was super pumped about, but I was also making connections with each of my students and I was also starting to see their confidence grow a little bit. They were no longer making excuses for […]
So by my third and fourth weeks tutoring at Learn for Life, I was finally in a routine. I knew where I would need to park, and I wrote down each of my student’s names and their classrooms. I was able to get the lesson started within a couple minutes, and I figured out how […]
Continuing from my last post, I am going to be sharing about the next part of the CAFE method. By the second week, things were no longer new, and I was able to get used to what I was doing each day. I only got lost a couple times, and I was able to figure […]

Learn for Life is a program set up for struggling readers. The idea is that students should be able to read well […]
The last few months have been just a hair short of insane, in both good and bad ways. I apologize for not updating for a while, but I have returned with lots of news, and more to come. I tried to condense everything and keep it short and sweet for you, so I have listed […]
“God is never going to give you something you can’t handle.” I’ve heard this so many times. I read a book called Wolf Story where the mantra is “Always strength comes for the task.” The origin of these quotes is 1 Corinthians 10:13, and I take these statements to heart, as if they […]
My last couple of posts have been talking about purpose. On December 8, 2014, I finished drafting my own life purpose statement. This was the accumulation of nearly two years of evaluation, prayer, and study. Now that I have finished, I want to take what I have learned and pass it on to you. Maybe […]
