Trail running...with Love

Running is one of my biggest passions. So you can imagine how excited I was when I had the opportunity to run 15 miles during my time at a summer camp for Christian Scientists! The camp offered trail running as a free choice activity, and I enthusiastically signed up.

Fight bullying with prayer

At my school there has been a big problem, and maybe it’s at your school, too. It’s called bullying.
