This weekend, I traveled to one of the most beautiful mountain towns in America. Park City Utah, the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics, is a small historic mining town nestled in the valley of some of the most majestic mountains in the state.
I was greeted by some of the most hospitable families I’ve come to know. Long time KIVU families like the Petersons and the Yakubisons make life so fun when I’m on the road.
The invited me to be a part of a parent discussion on, “How to relate to Teenagers In Today’s World” and a student meeting on my book “ALONE: Finding Connection is a lonely world.” The new friends I met, and the students who engaged in Saturday night’s discussion were both so encouraging. There’s so much to learn from each other, and traveling to different communities confirms a deep knowing in my soul. We’ve got a lot of work to do, but we can do it together.
Sunday, I went to Mountain Life Church in the Park City Valley to speak to the church on Luke 10:25, the Good Samaritan Story. Sharing the moments in my spiritual life is exciting, especially when it’s one of the most transformative stories in my own transformation.
After three services, I spent time with several people who were interested in how to live a life in a more “Jesus” centric way.
On my way home, I was deeply encouraged, excited for the summer at KIVU to come, and even more than all that: I find myself in a position to hold on and see what God has for us next. It’s going to be a GREAT ride!!
Thanks to Ron and Liz; Jorn and Jeanne. You guys are amazing. I appreciate your friendship. OH, and Cole, Grace, Hayden, Alex, and Morgan… Hope to See you this summer!!
