“So, I skate. And do you know what matters when I skate? Not dying or getting severly hurt. If that doesnt focus your mental energy, I dont know what will. And for those with lots of mental energy (brains that are always going and thinking and reflecting and ruminating and deciding), there is a peace and a silence and a place of rest in stepping outside of that. I am also rarely alone, and I miss out on intimate time with God because of that. There is joy in the solitude of having just myself, my board, and my God (and that pavement whizzing by).” – Kester

 

Longboarding (or any sport really) is such an amazing way to just free yourself.  Whenever I was stressed or needed to think, I grabbed my board and took a spin around campus.  I came back feeling refreshed and ready to handle anything.  See, when you do something like skate or paint or anything where you are alone with your thoughts, you can really let God take over, and speak to you.  When we stop trying to fix everything ourselves and just let God be God, our healer and provider, we cannot go wrong!

Are you an introvert?
  How do you process?  This is the biggest difference between introverts and extroverts.  Do you process things internally or verbally?  Yes, we all do a little of both but most people usually lean to one of the two sides. I know that I am more of an introvert and it's just recently th

Living by the Spirit
"For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters.  But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature.  Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love." - Galatians 5:13 (NLT) I love the book of Galatians.  I am reading through it again right now for the 3rd

Seeking Freedom
If I asked you if you'd rather be free or bound up, what would you say?  If you had the choice to be completely yourself, free from persecution in any way OR tied down and burdened under a law, what would be your answer?  This seems pretty obvious, right?  So why is this decision so hard for us t
