Youth Alive 2012

This was my first Youth Alive and definitely not my last! I had a blast like usual, and aside from the amazing preachings about God's mercy and restoration, a highlight of this trip was meeting some of the bloggers face to face.  

Day 1 
One of those bloggers was Sister McElhaney.
 So nice to finally meet you! I wish we would have spent more time together, but in the short chat we did have, I could tell that you are: 1. Sweet, 2. COOL! 
Hope to see you again soon.
The other blogger was Miss Kendra. She is just as beautiful in person as she is in pictures. We hit it off right away. I had a blast hanging out with her after service Thursday, although I wish they could have made it to Magic Mountain on Saturday.  Her and her "twins" Misha and Courtney, had me cracking up throughout the night. haha

Michelle and I were forced to share a chair heh heh
 Jedidah! I love this girl, I can't wait to see her again at West Coast!

Don't judge me. lol

Day 2

I couldn't resist taking a picture of the, they were actually nice! And of course, no morning is complete without some coffee.

What do Apostolics do when they stop to get gas?
They spray their

My pretty roommates for the conference :)
I promise I wasn't trying to choke her.. ahem.

So basically I am making that face because I have no idea who that kid is. lol. 

Why am I slouching?

I don't know this guy, but I thought it was interesting how he charged his phone. lol
My Texas friends! Love you guys! It's kid of sad I don't know when is the next time I'll see them... tear tear.
I spy with my little brown eyes three other girls in this pic. lol
He drove there... ahem.

Day 3

This is what happens when you don't get on a ride.

Eliana loves taking pictures with me.
No really, she loves it sooo much that she shoves me away during the pictures. lol
This picture cracks me up.

Eliana is also so nice she pours water on poor innocent guys.... I had nothing to do with this...

Adrianna, Carisa, Elias, me and Vanessa.
I officially have more friends from Oregon!

 And that was Youth Alive my friends! 

A special thank you to Christy who was a wonderful hostess. Let me tell you, what hostess buys coffee for their guests in the morning and even makes them cinnamon rolls? Only she does! Love her!

It's kind of sad because my summer is about to end, I only have about two more weeks until nursing school starts....sigh.

Next conference will be West Coast! I have a feeling it's going to be one of the funnest ones yet, for more than one reason.



  1. So glad we got to meet! LOL @the bow tie kid in your picture! He saw all you beauties and just couldn't help himself.

  2. But they aren't as cool as your first friend from Oregon, right???

    (BTW, you talk about slouching - I look AWFUL in that first picture! lol)

  3. Sister McElhaney: I think he goes to one of those girl's church, not sure. lol but thanks!
