He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wound you are healed.

1 Peter 2:24 (NLT)


Birthday loves the Lord and summers at Camp Thurman! This will be her 7th summer working at camp (but her 11th summer overall). She is studying Journalism New Media at Baylor University, and hopes to one day be a photographer and run media for either a church, non-profit, or missions organization. Some of her favorite things include reading, being goofy, thunderstorms, adventuring, long drives with the windows down, spending time with the people she loves, and coffee! She often uses the word ‘goon’ as a nickname of love. She cannot WAIT to hang out and play with campers all summer long, but most of all she is excited to talk about the steadfast love and grace that Jesus Christ has for all of us, and walk alongside the campers and CT staff in that grace each day, in all circumstances.
