I am sorry I wasn’t able to be there for send off today! I loved getting pictures and seeing the video of you all piling into the van. I hope you are settling into camp and are feeling excited about all you will get to experience and learn over the next week. I can’t wait to hear about how you are working on your goals, and what things you are doing at camp to help you grow. I hope you will jot some of your favorite moments down and share them with me when we hit the trail in a few days!
Thanks for the encouragement and prayers!
I’ve been thinking about and praying for you today and I’m hoping your first day was great! I’m praying you meet some great people and really feel God’s presence and His peace this week. God has great plans for you!

Great job on the wall today!! I loved seeing your name in the blog.. amazing job getting all the way to the top! From the pictures that looks like quite a wall. I’m continuing to pray that you have a wonderful time with the girls and learn more about Jesus and about yourself. Praying for peace and courage as you do things outside of your comfort zone!
Have a great Monday!
Hi Samantha!!! I was just looking through pics from the Ranch and spotted your beautiful face! I’m so excited that you are there…I had no idea! Please know that I will be praying for you now each step of your journey. The Ranch is so amazing, and I pray that God will show Himself so clearly to you…..through the leaders and other girls, through His word, and through the beautiful sights of nature you will see. I can’t wait to read more updates. Praying for you, girl!! ❤️
Thank you mrs.schroeder for praying I am having so much fun here and it has been very exciting doing new things
Awe this is the best!! Thanks for this
Good morning Samantha~
Look at you on that wall!!! My goodness am I impressed. How did you feel when you reached the top?
How was horseback riding? What is your horse’s name? When I was very young, I had an IMAGINARY horse that I named Sugar Bear (don’t make fun of me!) and I am maybe a little jealous about all of the time you get to spend in the barn.
Today I am going on a practice hike so I am ready for Thursday. I can’t wait.
See you soon!
Hi Samantha! Hope you are loving camp! I’ll be joining your group Thursday for the hike! I can’t wait to meet you. Glad you got to do a rock wall! I’ve never done that! It looks so fun!! Excited to get on the trail. It’s going to be awesome! See you soon. – Leah
Hello Samantha! My name is Rebecca and I am so blessed to be your prayer partner!! I have just read through your first couple of adventures on your first couple of days. It looks like you are having a great time. I’m SO impressed that you made it to the top of the climbing wall, such a brave victory! I I have been praying for you to feel the love and strength from God surround you through all of these experiences and activities. I am holding you in my prayers and I hope you have a great day today! 🙂
Thank you I am having a lot of fun here
Girl, get it……..as for me, I’m just chilling in Cedar Rapids! Lol
Hope you had a good Monday!
Loved that smile you had on the horse! I am proud of you hunny! Keep it up
I love you and miss you a lot and I had a really good day today and i had fun
Praying your Monday was even better than you thought it would be! I hope you’re having a great time and are meeting some great people. Praying that you feel peace and encouragement all week long!
Hi Samantha! Wow, what a great day yesterday. I saw a picture of you working on the entrepreneurship project! It looked like you were all working so well together. I am also amazed at the height of the ladder for the zip line, 40 feet, whoa! So many activities and challenges! I pray that you are really learning how to conquer your fears and obstacles with confidence, through faith, prayer and the caring group that is with you. I love following up with all of your activities and I pray that you have another great day today!

Your experiencing so much babygirl! I am so excited to see everything your doing !! Can’t wait to see you Sunday ❤️💋
It looks like you are experiencing some awesome things this week.. I hope you’re having a great time! So cool that you got to ride horses- I rode a horse for the first (and only) time a couple years ago and it was a great experience.. although they’re much bigger than I realized 😊 I continue to pray that you have great days, sleep well, build relationships with great people and feel peace in the tougher moments. Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!
Thank you for praying and I am having so much fun here 😊
i drove on the freeway/ highway today, so i was going 70 mph and i survived! I miss you btw:( our room is so empty
Sam has a brilliant mind and a great humor. We have really pushed her to use those things to contribute to the group. Everyday we have seen progress in that. She has thrived in our entrepreneurship activities and just needs to continue to work on the confidence in herself.
Good morning, Samantha! I’m so glad that you all had such a beautiful day yesterday for all of your camp activities, especially tubing on the water…so fun, I love to do that! I am praying that God keeps his loving and guiding hand over you and the entire group today!
Thank you for praying and keeping your prayers 😊
I have been praying for you before you came to the ranch and will continue throughout your stay and after. The pictures look like you are having a great time. I pray you feel the Lord this week and learn to depend on him in all circumstances, he is the only one you can always trust and count on, he will never leave you❤️❤️ I pray you know how cherished you are! Can’t wait to see more pics too!!!
Than you so much for praying 😊
I just read yesterday’s blog post and it looks like you guys are having some awesome days!! I didn’t realize how much time you get to spend with horses.. that’s so amazing. I hope you’re having a great time learning about how to care for and ride them! And I saw you went tubing as well- I love tubing!! So relaxing and refreshing 😊 I’m praying that you have the energy you need to get through each day and are able to learn new things about Jesus and yourself. Praying you don’t get frustrated by challenges but are able to learn and grow through them. And praying you know more and more how loved and special you are!
Hi…my name is Gretchen and I’m a friend of many of the leaders. I’ve been praying for you and the team this week. I started a new job and I’m alone cleaning houses for 8 hours straight… so it’s plenty of time to talk to God about you this week. I got creative today and thought of an acrostic poem about your hike:
T – trying to trust others
R – recognize & receive Him
A – all around me
I – imperfect but whole
L – learning to be me
Thank you that will be something I will try to remember its interesting
Man Sam! This week has been so weird without you at home. And the fact that I can’t just call you on your phone thingy. I can’t believe all the fun stuff your doing there. Love seeing you bonding with other girls. Making mommas heart so happy!

Hey Sam!!! I can’t believe the week is almost over. We’ve enjoyed seeing all the pictures your mom has been sharing. Can’t wait to hear about all the experiences you are having. Jaycee (and all the family) have been including you in our prayers for God to watch over you protect you and give you the grace, guidance to use this experience to fulfill your dreams and goals. God has great things instore for you and we can’t wait to see you bloom with his guidance. Have a great rest of the week and we’ll see you soon

Hi Sam love and miss you.Im glad you are experiencing this for your journey in life.You have grown so much.Cant wait to see you again.
Just wanted to write to tell you that I am so proud of everything that you are accomplishing at camp! Keep up the good work! Love you
Sounds like you guys left today on quite the journey. Praying for good weather, strength and endurance as you hike! I hope you enjoy your time in God’s creation and really feel Him at work in you this weekend. Praying for a wonderful time for you!
Praying that you have an amazing hike and have strength and endurance when it gets hard! I know sometimes it’s so much easier to give up (or want to!) but I pray that you feel strong and able to complete these days. I also pray you’re making amazing connections with both the other girls and with Jesus!
Have so much fun!!
Praying things are going well and you’re having a great time! I pray that you are learning and growing and being challenged and transformed in ways that last long beyond your time at the ranch. You are so special and I pray you feel that every day!
