Revive My Heart, Renew My Soul

Recently the Pure Witness Revival team visited our school. They performed songs and stories with a lot of interactive parts for the students to participate. They spread clear messages about how they turned and how we can always turn to God in our darkest moments, and when we have no one else to run or turn to. They were a very fun group and would be fun for more people to join them. Pure Witness is a group of teen missionaries that travel around the country spreading the word of God and encouraging us to keep God at the Center Read more »

Qualities of a Friendship

If one was to build themselves the ultimate best friend, and mould their interests and characteristics I know from experience that many of my friends have things in common with me.

The park ranger is actually an interesting job.  It involves a lot of planning, working to advertise the park, and to maintain and upkeep the condition of the land.  They also report and make public if an animal that could potentially Read more »

Decisions : What would I change

Decisions : What would I change

Last year, one day I had a quiz.  We had been told about the quiz two days in advance.  I had not had much time to study the first night because of soccer practice, but I had planned to study hard the next day.  The night before the quiz my favorite team was playing, the Golden State Warriors, against their biggest rival, the Cavaliers.  I knew that I should study and just watch the game later.  I didn’t though.  I then put down my study guide, and watched the game.  When I got my quiz back, I was disappointed with Read more »
