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!!
