I'm sure y'all are in full Christmas spirit, I know I am! I've been thinking a lot lately about the Christmas songs that I'm listening to. Many of these songs are songs of worship towards God and Jesus. Below I've listed some of my favorite Christmas carols and how they reflect back to God! As you hear them this season, remember to thank God for all that He has given you and for sending His only son! And how cool is it, that as we listen to these songs, we are worshipping God!

Oh Holy Night
This song gives me chills! This song is one that I think everyone needs to carefully listen to. The first verse describes how our heart and our world is changed because of Jesus. We are given hope and given life through Christ. The last verse talks about how our chains are broken and and we can praise His holy name! My favorite part of the whole song is when it says "Fall on your knees". I'm sure you're thinking that is a strange line to like, but it paints the perfect picture of how we should worship God. 

Little Drummer Boy
When I was your age, I did not like this song. I honestly found it annoying. But now it is one of my favorites! We often feel inadequate and like we have nothing to give back to God. Like in the song, the boy had no gift for Jesus, but he played his best song on his drum for Him and the baby Jesus smiled back at him. Jesus didn't ask for these amazing expensive gifts, He just wants us to give him our best and all that we have.  

Away in a Manger
This song reminds me of a lullaby, and the first part talks about how there wasn't even a crib for Jesus. Jesus didn't even have a bed and He still didn't cry! What a great reminder during a season when the world says we can only be happy if we have everything we want. Jesus was happy just being in his mothers arms. The last verse of it is beautiful. It says "be near me Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay close by me for ever and love me, I pray". This is something that we should be praying every day, not just during the holiday season.

I hope y'all take the time to listen carefully to Christmas carols this season and to sing along and worship God! Here is a link to download some Christmas carols from LifeChurch, my church in Oklahoma. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/lifechurch.tv-carols/id482496069?mt=2

Hope y'all have a blessed day and sing some Christmas tunes :)

Love ya!

Let It Snow!

Let it snow from the island!!

Greetings from the tropical winter wonderland! 

We have had so much fun the last couple of days playing in the snow! It is absolutely beautiful here! But it is also very weird to see kamp and Branson all snowy! I normally hate the cold and think the only thing that makes the cold okay is snow! Here is a picture of how pretty it has been the past couple days!
I love how the snow covers the ground! Just like the dirty ground is covered in a blanket of pure clean snow, God takes our sin and covers us in a blanket of forgiveness. With this forgiveness we are purified and made clean! This is such a wonderful reminder during the Christmas season! God sent His only Son to die on the cross in order for our sins to be forgiven! God thought through all the details when He made the earth!!

“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.

Isaiah 1:18

God even says in the Bible that our sin can be white like snow! So next time it snows, or you see snow on television if you live somewhere warm, remember that God covers our sins with a blanket of forgiveness!

Love y'all and stay warm!

How was your Thanksgiving break?! I'd love to hear about all of your holiday traditions! I spent most of my break in Branson! Dianna (she was on leadership this summer as well!) came to visit me! We drove by K1 and talked about all of our memories from last summer! We also watched some movies and went to all of our favorite Branson restaurants! 

Last Tuesday, Katey (she was a UC and a Kitchie at K1!) and I went to Fayetteville for dinner and to see the Christmas lights! Look at how pretty the lights are!

Katey also spent Thanksgiving with my family at the Lake of the Ozarks! My grandparents live there and my mom and siblings drove down for the week! We had so much fun watching movies and working on some homework! The lake was beautiful on Thanksgiving, the picture below is from our front patio!

What did you do over break? What were you most thankful for? I am so thankful that Jesus died for me on the cross and that I get to worship and learn about him daily! I'm also thankful for my family members and all of my friends and YOU!

Happy 1st day of December! :)

Love ya!!

Hi Girls!! 

I came across this today and couldn't help but pass it along!

How cool is it that God, will fight for us! Now, we can't just sit back and expect God to just do everything or that we won't go through hard times. We must rely on God and pray asking for Him to fight for us when things are tough! Take some time and pray today, asking God to help you get through any hard times! 

Email us (logan@kanakuk.com) and let us know how God is working throughout your life!

Love y'all!

Thanksgiving Rolls

Hey Girls!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! And I LOVE Thanksgiving dinner! Not only is it yummy, but I get to spend the whole day with my family! One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving dinner is the rolls! How cool would it be to make your Thanksgiving rolls extra special this year?! 

I found this recipe for Gratitude Rolls online! You can find the original recipe here: http://beautyandbedlam.com/thanksgiving-food-tradition-gratitude/

What you'll need:

  • Parchment Paper
  • Crescent Rolls
What to do:
  • Have guests write what they are thankful for on the piece of parchment paper.
  • Then when you roll the crescent rolls, roll the note inside!
  • Follow the baking direction on the can. 
Once the rolls are cooked and you're eating them at dinner, you can share the note inside! Then everyone can guess who wrote which note!!

Can't wait to keep sharing some Thanksgiving crafts with y'all!

Have a good weekend!

God Delights in Us

Hey Girls!

Today we had the amazing opportunity to learn from Matt Chandler! He is a pastor in Dallas, Texas and flew all the way to Branson to talk to the Kanakuk Institute about Jesus! What a blessing! One thing that stood out to me today was when Matt said that God likes us and He delights in us! This is something that we need to be reminded of every day! This verse shows us how much God loves us!

Zephaniah 3:17
The LORD your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.

  • God is with you! Not just sometimes or when things are going well, but ALWAYS!
  • Mighty means with impressive power or strength! God saves us with His power and strength! Nothing can break that!
  • He will delight in you! We cannot mess up! God takes great pleasure in being with us always!
  • He will quiet you with His love. I like to think of those moments when I'm upset and crying or frustrated, that God is there (because He is with us always!) to calm  me down and quiet me!
  • He will rejoice over you! THIS IS HUGE! God will rejoice over us! We take time to rejoice in Him and all of His marvelous works and He does that for us!
Can't wait to share more of what I am learning with y'all! 

Miss ya!

Hey Girls!

Tomorrow I give my Bible Overview, where I basically teach the whole Bible in 30 minutes. As I've been preparing for this, I have noticed that our God is very detailed. Look at this example with Moses:

Exodus 14: 29 "But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left."

This passage comes right after God parts the Red Sea for Moses and the Israelites. Notice how it says they went through the sea on dry ground. If you think about it, the ground would be wet and you would sink into it. But no, God allowed them not to sink and the ground was dry so they could safely walk across. 

Could you imagine walking through the Red Sea on dry land with a wall of water on both sides? How crazy would that be?!

God pays attention to the little details, don't forget that!

Love y'all!!!

Hey Girls!

It's already starting to look like Christmas here in Branson! The landing already has reindeer and Christmas trees set up! As much as I love Christmas, I get so sad that Thanksgiving is so easily skipped over. I think that it is important that we are thanking God for all that He has provided for us!

Last week I had to go through all the cabins and take down some cleaning signs that were left up. I had to stop and thank God at the beauty He created. Kamp is beautiful in the summer, but it is just as beautiful in the fall!

Here are some pictures from the cabin area!

This one is from Cabin 2's porch.

Look at all these colorful trees! This is on Cabin 15's porch!

I challenge you pray and tell God how thankful you are for all that He has created and provided for you! Make sure you're telling your parents and everyone around you how thankful you are that they are in your life and for everything they do for you!

I'll leave you with one last thing to let you think about: What if tomorrow you were only given what you thanked God for today?

Hope y'all are having a great start to the week!

I'm thankful for you!!

This is one of my favorite holidays because I love dressing up and the CANDY! When I was growing up, my mom would always make our Halloween costumes. I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of my old costumes with y'all!

Here is the bee costume my mom made! I don't know why I was so sad! And my cousins were Power Rangers!

Can you believe this is when I was two years old?! My mom also made this costume!

My mom didn't make this costume, but you can see the pumpkin I carved by my feet! The clown is one of my dear friends still today! 

What are y'all dressing up as this year? What's your favorite candy on Halloween? Comment below with your answers! 

Love y'all!

Hey Girls!

Yesterday we were discussing our Bible study over Abraham and we talked about Genesis 18:14 which says "'Is anything too difficult  for the Lord?.." This verse goes on to talk about how God will fulfill His promise and give Abraham a son. But how often do we think that things are too difficult for God? I think God can't handle a lot of my problems, which is not right. He could handle each trouble I face, way better than I could ever plan. I think that some of the things I am dealing with are too little for God or that God can't handle it. When really, I can't handle it without God. I have been trying to pray and ask God for assistance when things begin to be hard to handle. I encourage you to do the same!

Here is a picture that I had hanging in my dorm all throughout college. It was a great reminder that God's plan will ultimately prevail and that nothing is too difficult for Him!

I hope this encourages you this week! Miss y'all!

Love ya!

Sorry I haven't posted lately, I was able to go home and visit with my family! On Friday night, I went to my old high school's football game to watch my sister perform with the marching band. They have a really cool tradition called Light Show. Light Show is where they turn all the stadium lights out and perform the whole marching show with glow sticks! I haven't been to a Light Show since I was performing in one during high school! 

This is a picture of my drill team friends and I after Light Show in 2006!
Here is a picture of my youngest sister and I watching this year's Light Show!
While I was home, I also got to just spend a lot of time getting to catch up with my mom and grandma! We spent hours just talking about everything that was going on! It was such a fun weekend and I am so blessed to have such an amazing family! Hope y'all had a good weekend!!

Love ya!

Hey Girls!

I was just thinking about Kamp and how much I missed spending the night in the Party Barn! It was so much fun to get to swing at night and have ice cream sundaes made by the lovely Osages! One of my most favorite memories about the Party Barn is when I got to give the nightly devo for my kabins when I was a U.C.. 

Jesus says "...let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 5:16)

That verse is a great reminder of how we must be an example of Christ for others. We should be servant hearted, love unconditionally and be encouraging. Not only should we do good works, but we are called to revert all the glory, back to God. By giving God all the glory, we will humble ourselves before him and show others that we are not living for the approval of man, but for the approval of God. Keep on living a life that shines for Christ!

Miss ya!!

Lately, I feel like a lot people I know are questioning why I am at the Kanakuk Institute. It made apprehensive to tell people that I was spending 9 months learning about God's word and the Bible. Then I came across this picture.

The second half of the verse Romans 8:31 says "If God is for us, who can be against us?" and I find so much comfort in that verse. We have no reason to think that God has anything less than the best planned for us! Sure, times may be tough and people may question why you're following God, but we have God on our side. He will guide us and cheer for us every step of the way! Save this picture or memorize this verse for those moments when you feel like everything is going against you!

Love ya!

It's FRIDAY!!!!

I have a treat for y'all today! I love ordering Carmel Apple Spices at Starbucks, so I thought I would share with you a homemade version I found online!! It's super simple!

You only need two things!

-Apple Cider (or apple juice)

First, make sure you have and adult help you with working the stove, we don't want anyone to burn themselves! You'll want to heat the apple cider in a pot on medium for a couple of minutes. Once it is heated, you'll add in a couple spoonfuls of caramel. The amount depends on how much caramel you like. Once you've added the caramel, turn the heat down to low and stir it every now and then. This is so it doesn't make the caramel burn and then your drink would taste funny! Once the caramel is melted into the drink, you can start putting it into cups. Just remember to be careful, because it'll be hot!!

Hope y'all have a fun weekend!!

I've included the original blog I found this on, incase you want to save the recipe!

So today, as I was driving to the Kanakuk offices, I was blown away by God's marvelous creation! Remember how I told you that I love fall, well the leaves were beautiful today! We often overlook God's creation. In Genesis, it talks about how God spoke, and the birds, water, light, fish, trees and humans were created! How cool is it that the God that created the universe, created each of us by name with a purpose to glorify Him. 

"For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him" Colossians 1:16

Here is a picture of some leaves changing! (confession: I got it from Google because it was cloudy today!) 

Miss y'all!!

ps: you should stop and take a minute to look at and thank God for all the beautiful things He has created!

How's everyone's weekend going? I have had such a fun so far! Yesterday, I drove to Denison, Texas with 4 of my Kanakuk Institute friends to see two of our fellow classmates get married!! Our car ride down was full of laughter and singing. Once we got to the wedding site, I noticed someone familiar walk in the door...it was a kamper from my very first cabin!

Look how beautiful Caylee is!! I wish I could see all my old kampers!! I also saw Kristen, a counselor and the videographer this past summer! I could go on and on about all the things I am thankful for this weekend! What are y'all thankful for this weekend?

Psalm 118:29 "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever."

Love ya!!

Good Afternoon!

It is a beautiful 72 degrees with a slight breeze rolling down Kanakomo Hill! How was your weekend? I had one of the best weekends! I got to see two of my Osages! Chandler came to visit and I saw Abby in Oklahoma! It was so fun getting to catch up with them and hear all about how their freshman year is going! 

Here is a picture of Chandler and I!

And Abby and I in Oklahoma!

At the Kanakuk Institute this week, we are learning the Bible overview. Karen Chancey is teaching us how to put the stories we know, in historical order. This has makes it easier to understand the Bible, because I can view it as one big story. It’s sort of like a puzzle! I had all the pieces (biblical stories) but I was never able to put it together (Bible overview). By the end of the week I will be able to do that! We are even learning motions to help us remember all of the events! Once I know the whole thing, I will post a video!

Hope your week is off to a great start!!


Friday, October 4, 2013

Happy Friday!!

This week, we entered into one of my favorite months of the year...October!! I love when the leaves change, drinking apple cider and Halloween! (I don’t like it when it gets really cold though...) Today I had the opportunity to eat lunch with my small group at Big Cedar, look at this fall display they had out front!
I can’t wait to reveal to y’all what my Halloween costume is this year!! Although there are many things that are great about October, a lot of people associate fear with October.

As Christians, we are not called to live fearfully. God has given us peace, so that we can live to glorify him. There are so many things in life that can make us fearful or worried. Isaiah 41:10 says “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” How comforting is it to know that the God that created the universe is with you always?! God says he will uphold you with His righteous hand! Memorize this verse, so whenever you’re scared or worried, you will be reminded that God is always with you!

Have a good weekend! Love y’all!

Hey Girls!!

It’s Ali and I was the Osage Mom this past summer! I get to spend the year studying God’s word at the Kanakuk Institute here in Branson. I miss y’all so much and am so excited that I get to post on the blog a couple times per week! I’m going to start by telling you a little bit about myself!

  1. I love to dance. I grew up dancing and I even studied it in college!
  2. My favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast.
  3. I like snow cones a lot.
  4. I can hum and whistle at the same time.
  5. I love Jesus!
Now that school has started back up, it is easy for us to get busy with homework and practices. However, we cannot forget to spend time daily studying the Bible and praying! One of my favorite Bible verses is Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things.”. This verse is a great reminder for us to focus on God and not get distracted by our busy lives. I hope you’re still working on your devo books from this summer! We miss y’all so much and we are counting down the days until the Kanakomo gates open again for the summer!!

Here’s a picture of the leadership girls from tribal dancing this summer! 

Love ya!

David Took on a Giant!

What's up girls?!

Remember how I told you I went to Israel a couple of weeks ago? Well now I want to show you some pictures from the trip! You are only going to get a few at a time so keep checking in to see more!

Today I want to show you the valley where David defeated Goliath! Y'all, it was absolutely beautiful! It was a cloudy day but it didn't take away from the awesomeness of this valley! I could completely imagine two armies on separate ends facing each other preparing for battle. Have you heard the story of David and Goliath? If not here is a summary of it. You can find the story in the Bible too (1 Samuel 17)!
The Philistine army had gathered for war against Israel. The two armies faced each other, camped for battle on opposite sides of a steep valley. A Philistine giant measuring over nine feet tall and wearing full armor came out each day for forty days, mocking and challenging the Israelites to fight. His name was Goliath. Saul, the King of Israel, and the whole army were terrified of Goliath.
One day David, the youngest son of Jesse, was sent to the battle lines by his father to bring back news of his brothers. David was probably just a young teenager at the time. While there, David heard Goliath shouting his daily defiance and he saw the great fear stirred within the men of Israel. David responded, "Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of God?"
So David volunteered to fight Goliath. It took some persuasion, but King Saul finally agreed to let David fight against the giant. Dressed in his simple tunic, carrying his shepherd's staff, slingshot and a pouch full of stones he had plucked from a stream, David approached Goliath. The giant cursed at him, hurling threats and insults.
David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied ... today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air ... and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel ... it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give all of you into our hands."
As Goliath moved in for the kill, David reached into his bag and slung one of his stones at Goliath's head. Finding a hole in the armor, the stone sank into the giant's forehead and he fell face down on the ground. David had defeated him!
Can you imagine the amount of courage it took for David to do this?! Keep in mind that at the time he wasn't much older than you girls! He trusted God and knew that the Lord would deliver  him. WOW! We all have "giants" in our lives. I pray that when I am faced with a "giant" in life that I can do the brave thing and stand up for God! I pray that for you girls as well! I hope you enjoyed the pictures but more than that I hope you learned from God's Word today!

Love you!

Why Kanakuk?

Hey K1 Girls!

I have missed you girls over the past week and a half and I have so many stories I want to tell you! I took tons of pictures of the sites I saw in Israel and I can't wait to show you! But today I want to tell you why I think you should be at Kamp this summer! Ashley from K2 posted this in her blog and I loved it so much I wanted you girls to see it too.

Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's real.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's away.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because we see a leader in every one of you.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's a refuge.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's FUN.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's simple and chaotic.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's cool.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because we want you to know that you are AWESOME!
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's adventure.
Why Kanakuk Kamps? Because it's not facebook, twitter or instagram...it's conversations and relationships.

Kanakuk is the place where my life changed forever and I know God can use it to change your life too. Come to Kamp this summer to have an amazing life changing experience!

Love you girls!

Heading to the Promised Land!

Happy Weekend Ladies!

Today is the first day of my spring break and guess where I am heading? Israel! I am so excited to go see the promised land in person! If you don't know, a lot of the stories in the Bible happened in Israel. That is where Jesus lived! I promise to take pictures to show you!

The sad news is that I'll be gone for 10 days so there will be no blog this next week :(
I'll be back the next though!

I hope you girls have a great week!

I'll miss ya!

Pretty soon we are going to start working on some new activities and wait for it.... THE PARTIES!!!!! I have a mission for you girls... I would love to hear some activities YOU would like to do this summer! Would you like to have a dance party class? Or maybe a fishing class? The sky is the limit! Comment and I will see what we can do! You might be the girl to come up with the coolest activity we do at Kamp this summer!

Lecrae Won A Grammy!

Ok I know I'm a little late posting on this but it is too good to go unnoticed... LECRAE WON A GRAMMY!!!! How cool is that?!?! He has written several songs for Kamp in the past which are always awesome! Here are some of his past theme songs!

Catch That Wave was one of my all time favorites!

Leap of Faith

Game On

Amp It Up

Some of these go all the way back to when I was a kamper... Oh man that's been awhile! Enjoy the videos and you should check out his albums!!!!!

Who Are You Serving?

What's up Komos?!

Gotta love hairnets!
Anybody recognize the girl
on the right? She worked as a
counselor a couple of years ago!
Not to long ago I got a really neat opportunity to serve in my community. We have a ministry here in Branson called Loaves and Fishes that serves dinner to families who need some help. My job was to pass out the biscuits right after they got their chicken and veggies... and it was awesome! I did not get to have long conversations with anybody, I only got maybe two or three seconds to try to make their day a little bit better but you know what I realized? It doesn't take much to bless people! Sometimes all it takes is a smile! 

You just have to love people! How could you love your parents? Maybe by cleaning up the kitchen for them! How could you love your brother or sister? Maybe by letting them have the last cookie! Is there somebody at your school who is having a hard time? You could serve them by just spending some time with them to let them know you care about them! You can serve in a ton of different ways... How are you serving?!

Sometimes I Need a Little Pep Talk!

Happy Rainy Day Ladies!

Some of you may be in a place that is 72 degrees and sunny today but here in Branson it is raining cats and dogs! Have you ever thought about that saying... please try to imagine cats and dogs raining down from the sky... I bet it's pretty funny! I love rainy days though! The sounds of a storm just make my heart happy :)

Today I just wanted to leave you with a fun videoclip! This little dude has really got some great points!

I hope that gave you some inspiration to give the world a reason to dance!

Love you girls!

Check Yo Self!

What's Up Kanakomo Ladies?!

Holy cow it's the last week of fruits! Can you believe it? I sure can't! Let's do the verse...

"And the fruits of the Spirit are 





against such things there is no law."

Galatians 5:22-23

Have you memorized that yet? I have a deal for you... If you come to Kamp this summer with that verse memorized and you say it to me... You will get a tasty treat! What an easy way to get a sweet!

Have you ever seen a full plate of cookies and before you knew it you ended up eating them all? Maybe at first you thought... I'll just have one... well maybe another.... three won't isn't that bad... and then all of the sudden you realize there are no more cookies?! Believe me, I have had this problem before! This my friends is a lack of self-control!

There is a lot of stuff in this world that you cannot control... but one thing you always can control is how you behave! You may not be able to control how much homework you are assigned, but you can control if you complete it all! You may not be able to control if your friends are doing the right things or not, but you can control if you are! My mom use to always ask me the same question when I was growing up and it use to drive me crazy then... but now I love it! When I was frustrated with how others were acting around me she would always ask me "Whose behavior can you control?" and I always had to respond with "My own." Isn't that a great reminder?!

So ladies, when you are out and about this weekend, remember that you are responsible for your actions and that the Lord wants us to have self-control! He loves us to have fun too don't get me wrong, but we also have responsibilities!
