Happy Birthday Destiny!!!

Wow, 15 years have gone by, and so fast, since the day Destiny Jane was born. I was thinking back, and it seems like throughout my whole life we have been best friends. I don't know what I would do without Destiny? She is such a kind, fun, encouraging, loving, and awesome lady.

Yesterday, at school, Destiny and I were talking through facial expressions, and then Dad said: "Girls, stop talking with your eyebrows, and get your questions done!" Yup, we pretty much have a whole language we can speak by looking at each other with expressions. We like to play it on Kaila, we give a face to each other, then we know what to say to her. Well that is just one way I realized how close of friends we have become.
When our Uncle John came up here, he asked me if I wanted to go out to eat by myself or with Destiny. Well of course I wanted to go with Destiny. Then the next day she told me he had asked her the same thing, and she said she wanted to go together too! We love doing pretty much everything together. Ever since we were little we would always call each other to see if we could match. Grandma took us to buy lots of matching clothes, so we would always match. We still do once in a while, just for old times, we have so much fun. We would also carry our dolls with us everywhere, and for our birthdays we would buy best friend lockets. I could go on and on with memories of our friendship, but I'll quit here.
I was looking for pics, and there are so many crazy pictures of us. But I will only post a few.

I am so blessed to have you Destiny for a friend, thanks for being there for me, and always being such a great friend. Happy 15th Birthday!!!

So I guess I'll just tell of whats been happening in the past few day's: A couple days ago, Dad took the boys out camping, so it was just us girls. They got home today, while I was painting. Today I painted a landscape oil painting. It isn't very good, but it was fun. I haven't done one for so long, and now that we have Omnibus off, I can do more things. Now we all have to go take singing lesson's pretty soon, so I had better rap it up. I have lots of new pics I've been taking, so Ill just post a few randomly. Okay, see ya later!!!

Worldview Academy Conference!

Hello everyone, Well we got back from our trip to Salem. We (Dad, Kaila, David, Alex, Destiny, and I) went to a Christianity and Culture Conference by Worldview Academy. It was so awesome!! We rented an expedition, then drove there on Friday, and came home Saturday night. On Friday we heard Randy Sims speak on an Introduction to Worldview. His talk was really good. We got to hear Jeff Baldwin, Randy Sims, Mike Tiland, and Dell Cook. I guess Ill post some of my notes from the talk
by Mike Tiland.

1. Who is your hero?
2. Who has the greatest impact in your life?
3.What do you want written on your tombstone?
4.When you die what do you leave behind? The legacy you leave begins today.

What is a Legacy?
-A Legacy is something you leave behind, or something to remember you by.
- A Legacy is "Something handed down from the past."
-"Each man appears for a little while to laugh and to weep, to work and play, and then to go to make room for those who shall follow him." -A.W. Tozer

2 Peter 1:15-20, Peter wants to pass down the Legacy of Christ. He doesn't want his name to be remembered, only what he taught, and that was the legacy of Christ. This is what we as Christians should labor for.

What does that look like for us?
- Matthew 28:19- Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. "Go"= as you go. Anywhere we go (work, school, shopping...) we are called to make disciples.
Whats a Disciple? -A disciple is a learner or pupil(Isaiah 50:4, Matt 10:24)
-We are all disciples off multiple things. Or some may be disciples of you.
-What are you a disciple of? Before we can make disciples, we must be one ourselves.
-Matthew 10:1-2
-Everyone who is a follower of Christ is not exactly a disciple of Christ A follower, listens and thats it. A disciple reflects their teacher. Matt 24:3

Christ's Disciples:
1. Die to yourself- "carry your own cross"
-Luke 14:27-33, Christ has to be that which defines our life.
2. Continue in the word-
-John 8:31, We need to continue to grow in Christ
3. Have love for others
-John 13:35
4. Abide in Christ
-"abide"= to continue in the presence of. We rush through the day without praying or abiding in the presence of Christ.
-John 15:7-8

Two main Things to Remember
1. Its not about you, its all about Christ. Philippians 2:2
2. Discipleship is not a formula, its a relationship. Christ had a relationship with His disciples. He walked and lived with them.
Making Discples, passes on a legacy.
How Christ made disciples:
1.Talked with them
~Luke 9:43-45
2. Walked with them-relationship
~Luke 8:22-23
3. Corrected them
~Matt 16:22
4. Loved them
~Matt 17:12- We are to love them through their mistakes

Who is already a disciple of yours?
Who are you a disciple of?
Are you leaving a legacy for you, or for Christ?
Psalm 17:15
