A Day in Chinatown

On Sunday my roommates and I took my sister Jenny to Chinatown in LA. It definitely felt a lot like home. The smells, the sounds, the people, and the foods all reminded me so much of Thailand. It was actually kind of like night market in Chiang Mai. We had lots of fun and took lots of pictures! Here are just a few. My next blog will be about my favorite purchase of the day!

Candace, Me, Jenny, and Leanna on the street.

We do love to shop.

Sisterly love

Jenny is here!!

My little sister, Jenny landed in the wonderful California on Friday! We have been having a great time together. Since we do not get to see each other that often we have been catching up on old times, laying out by the pool, and watching movies (Jenny has been at camp for the whole summer and so she hasn't been able to watch TV). Yesterday we went to Chinatown and is was a lot of fun! We took lots of pictures so I will be posting them soon. So keep checking for updates!

I am an Animal Lover

I was looking through some old pictures from my childhood and saw the many of them have a common theme. I am an animal lover.

Today started out a good day but turned into a stressful day. It is weird to think about how when I was in high school, the trials I faced seemed like they were so huge. Now looking back at them and they seem so simple. Each trial faced as life goes on continues to feel so much bigger than the last. In high school I worried about leaving my friends for the summer or if I should stay with my family or try to find a job for extra “spending money”. Now it has turned into worrying about not being able to be hired by anyone or how I will pay for this months rent. Sometimes I wonder why some days seem so easy and other days feel like the world really is on my shoulders.

One these reoccurring days of the past month I am reminded of a speaker in my discipleship program where he challenged us with this thought. He told think if the moment that our walk with God was the greatest? Think of why it was the greatest? What were you doing for it to be at this point? Then ask yourself why am I not at the point right now?

On days like today where I feel like I am not in that much control of my own life I think about this that question.

I am reminded of my life theme verse from Jeremiah 29:13

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with your whole heart”.

Question answered.

First Limo Ride

I am currently interning at Parkcrest Christian Church in Long Beach for their high school ministry and loving every minute of it. This past Saturday night we had our little commissioning time for the 8th graders that are moving into high school. We "kidnapped" them and took them in Limos and then on a scavenger hunt. It was my first limo ride. Not exactly what I thought my first limo ride would be like full of sweaty teenagers. But it was still rockin!

Becca's Bridal Shower

Two Saturdays ago I was able to go to one of my good friend (since Freshman year of college we starts a big butts club) Bridal shower. Becca will be getting married to Matt on July 11th and I cannot wait for their wedding. It is crazy to think how they both have been good friends of mine throughout my college years. I am so happy for them and wanted to share two some pictures from the shower. Your day is almost here Matt and Becca!

This picture is of some of girlfriends. Leanna (my roommate), Tina (Fellow MK friend), and Charity (she is going to be famous some day).

New Things

So I finally broke down... I decided since everyone in my family, my mentor, relatives, friends, and many more all have blogs I would convert too. It will take me a while but I think I will get the hang of it. Any suggestions feel free to add! I am a newbie at this.
