Sleepover Pics!

I went to my first Youth Group Event on Friday Night. They had a sleepover for the girls at the church and I actually got to give the devotion and share my testimony. It started at 7:00 with Taco's [yummy!] and fellowship. We baked cookies [well, some of them baked cookies, the rest of us ate the dough by the spoonful], and the girls got to decorate cakes. They knew it was a contest, but they didn't know exactly what for. They had to decorate them, thinking that the winner would be chosen based on the best looking cake. Surprise, Surprise! The winner was chosen based on which group could eat their decorated cake, the fastest...without any utensils. It was hilarious! Some of the teams got a little icing and sprinkle happy while decorating and regretted it when it got time to actually eat the cake.

We decided to play "Man Hunt" in the pitch black of the church...it was insanely creepy. But it was lots of fun. Lots of screaming, lots of bruises from bumping into stuff in the dark, but worth it. I managed to make it till 4:30 am, and then I crashed. The girls had to be gone at 7:00, so I only managed to get about 2 hours of sleep or so. Luckily for me, Josh let Noah stay up crazy-late Friday night, so he ended up napping about 4 hours or so when I got home, which meant that me & Josh both got to nap too. Here are a few pictures for you...most of them were taken in the dark, which is why we look demonic with our red eyes. Haha!

I missed Tiffany's Memo to make a scary face...

Amie, Me & Tiffany...we were the "big kids" of the group.

Pausing in the hallway to take a picture in the dark. Surprisingly enough we all managed to keep our eyes open!

Funny Faces! :)

:) Good times...

Amie let me give the Devotion and share my Testimony. I was unbelievably nervous, but it turned out really well. I didn't start until 1:00 am, and actually managed to keep most of the girls awake! I had one girl com up to me when I finished and told me how grateful she was that I shared my story with then. She said that I had inspired her and encouraged her not to become involved in the things that I had gotten tangled up in in my life. I almost cried. It was the first time I had ever shared my story with girls that weren't my peers and I was extremely humbled by her kind words. That alone was enough to make me want to continue sharing what I learned and have overcome. Thanks to all of you whose thoughts and prayers were with me. I am so very much appreciative!

You must feel so empowered after that, knowing that your words have helped another. Awesome!
