I made a look-back post last year, so I figured I'd continue the tradition!
Happy New Year's Eve to all of you, and a blessed New Year! Stay safe on the road tonight, and let me know in the comments one thing you can't wait to accomplish in 2016.  

2015 was a crazy year.

 It included my second semester at Bible college, then an incredible and exhausting whirlwind two months of ministry at summer camp, followed by a mini break before jumping right back into the first semester of my junior year at my favorite university. (It's good to be back!) Along the way, 2015 has included adventures in hiking, photography, learning the backbone of what I believe, creating a yearbook, writing parts of my novel, learning more about journalism, creating a music blog, making friends, and breaking down. This year was all about leaning on the Lord's strength, not my own.

This was my desk during Bible college.
A pretty cluttered space, now that I look at it. It's so weird to remember my dorm room....that feels like ages ago. Is anybody else reminiscing today about 2015 as a whole and feeling sort of nostalgic and in awe?

My friends and I went to Oxford Exchange for Valentine's Day and basically felt judged by every hipster-y type on the planet. But while we were there, we got to have this really candid conversation with a complete stranger about church and his background with God. It was totally random, and wonderful! Good day.

Hiking. Oh, how I miss it.

This picture was taken on the first day of camp!
These girls were my absolute favorites to counsel with, and luckily this wasn't the only week we got to man a cabin together!

Me & Adeline created a yearbook for our work assignment during the school year. This was the photo of us seeing the result of our (often stressful but wonderfully creative and bonding) work for the first time.

My cousin and sister were basically my "mains" this year.
It's the most wonderful thing when your best friends are your family.
