A Summer of GROWTH + New Beginnings!

Wow, it’s so good to be back at Hope! I am an RA in Dykstra this year and I am loving it so far. My residents rock and I just love being back in Dykstra with such an incredible Res Life staff. They’re so great! Look at them!

Dykstra Staff

I’m so excited for a year with them and all our beautiful Dykstra ladies!

This summer, I was a counselor at Covenant Harbor in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, and it was truly life-changing. I learned so much about what God is really like, how incredible his love is, and how full he really can fill our lives and hearts. I also learned a ton about who I am and I feel like, for the first time, I truly became myself at camp. It was such a cool feeling and even though it might sound weird, I’m making sure to stay myself while I’m at school! Camp just blew my mind in so many ways that I really needed and, while I was way too stubborn in getting there, I’m so glad that God put me at Covenant Harbor this summer. I needed it and needed Him in so many ways that I had no idea about until I went.

Here are some pictures from camp! It was the best!

My summer was incredible but I’m so glad to be back at Hope as well! It’s going to be an incredible year!
