This weekend was our annual youth discipleship weekend- D*weekend. It is always such an amazing time with great friends and awesome leaders. We {normally} spend Friday and Saturday night at host homes.

Sadly, this year was a tad different. The weather in NC has been crazy and we had an ice storm on Thursday night/Friday morning. Because we had no power Friday, it was delayed to Saturday.

We had three worship sessions on Saturday with incredible music and powerful messages.

God's Presence was SO evident and He moved in ways none of us saw coming.

People met Jesus and lives were changed.

I was reminded that Jesus needs to stick out in my life.

It hit me that healing comes in the most unexpected circumstances.

And once again I stood worshipping praising His name- His holy, pure, beautiful, redemptive, graceful name. I was in awe of His grace and glory.

In the end, it was a fabulous 24 hours full of Jesus.

I'm so grateful that I serve such a powerful God- a God who allows us to worship His name and draw closer to His heart.

Saturday before session #1- the picture started off with five of us and quickly grew! So thankful for all of these people.

Our host home was thirty minutes away so we went to a nearby park to have our small group. These times are so precious.

Then after dinner at Zaxby's we took selfies in the car. Emily Grace got to come for all of Saturday- so much fun.

And then this happened. Don't ask.

Because of all of the power outages the 7th grade girls bunked with us. These two girls are just about the sweetest.

And then three of us matched in an old D*weekend shirt. 

Group picture time for all of the 11th grade girls. 

What a beautiful weekend with beautiful people and a more than beautiful Jesus.

Grateful and full of love for Him.
