So last weekend I went to Boone, NC with some of the Young Pros at church for a weekend of skiing. And let me tell you, I was not confident that I would master the art of this snow sport. I was so nervous when I woke up the first morning. But as I have been learning (and making an effort to practice), God's peace can guard your heart in all things. Even something as silly as a fear of falling down a snow covered mountain.
Now I am definitely no pro. I would still consider myself a beginner, but I did really well! By the end of the trip I was going down those greens like they were nothing! (Keep in mind, the green slopes really are practically nothing, but for me, it was huge!)
I seem to be doing this a lot recently.
Facing little fears.
Fears of all kinds.
And setting goals.
And following through.
(Ex - this was a successful 2nd week of 5:30am classes at the YMCA. And I love it.)
I am in a place where I am growing a lot right now. I feel it. And in some things, it has been a little painful. In other things, it has been so liberating. I am excited to see what God is preparing me for... Please be praying about that for me.
Now for some pictures of the trip!
Ready for a day of skiing! Just look at all of that snow!

Me & Christy on the van. We look so hardcore.
The most incredible snow-woman I have ever helped build.
Just look at that face...
So much emotion in those eyes...
