To know me is to know that having brunch on a rooftop patio in Uptown Dallas is about as outdoorsy as I get. However, the Lord has a great sense of humor and loves calling me into areas where He knows are out of my comfort zone. In fact, God got a good laugh about a month ago when He called me to go to Frontier Ranch in Buena Vista, Colorado, for Young Life camp for a week! Minus me being sick for two days, I was filled with so much joy after trusting God to guide me through a week in a place that was unfamiliar. Here’s what can happen when we allow ourselves to experience the beauty of answering God’s call to take a walk outside of our comfort zones. Continue reading

If you went to Kroger, Target or any other store in Dallas yesterday, then you know that the city’s’ first order of business for the new year was the start of the Carryout Bag Ordinance which requires Dallas customers to pay five-cent per single-use bag, paper or plastic.
