  1. Hey Gracen!

    My name is Madilynn and I am your prayer partner. I am so excited for you to go on this journey! I am praying God gives you the strength to get through this week, and to work through any fears. I am excited to see all the pictures of the fun things you will do this week. I saw you guys went to the rock wall today. Were you able to go, if so how far did you make it?

    I can’t wait to see all you accomplish! Good luck on your first night at camp!

  2. Hi Gracen!!! I’m sorry I didn’t have the chance to see you ladies off yesterday, but I am so looking forward to spending the day at camp with you all on Wednesday. I will be your new case manager for the year and will be praying specifically for God to move in mighty ways this week and year! I know God has big plans for you and this fun adventure! Hopefully you are already settled in and enjoying camp! See you soon!

  3. Hi I’m having fun at camp i didn’t. Sleep that well but nobody does on the first night. I get to meet my horse today I got to go swimming last night I met a friend or two it so much fun! I’m a little homesick but not very much, I got to go Rock wall climbing I love you talk to you later

  4. Hello Gracen! How was your first night? Did you get a horse today? I am continuing to pray for your strength through this week. I pray that you are kept safe and that you’re able to see how much God loves you. Not only that, but for you to see the amazing relationships you can have with the girls and your leaders. I can’t wait to see how much progress you make this week. I hope you know how loved you are and know there are so many people rooting you on!! Good luck!

  5. Hey Gracen! Hope your first full day was full of adventures! Proud of you for being courageous and going to camp! Can’t wait to hear how your day went!

    Have Fun!

  6. Gracen,

    You do not know me, but I work with Remembrance Ranch and will be joining you this year on the hike as a Weekend Warrior. I am so looking forward to meeting you and spending 4 days in God’s country with you and the other girls/staff! I have read through all of your postings and see that you are enjoying yourself tons!!!!! I am so incredibly excited that camp has been a positive experience for you so far!!!!!!!!!

    I, personally, have never been hiking like we are about to and have to admit I am a little nervous about the experience. I am having to rely on my faith in God to help me to get through some of my super anxious moments! Aleena’s mom posted something that reminded me to remember my faith in God. I hope if you are ever in a moment of struggle that this helps you as much as it helped me. The quote is: “I have amazing potential, I can make good choices, I am never alone, I can do hard things, I am beautiful inside and out, I am of great worth/value, He has a plan for me, I know who I am, I am a daughter of God!”

    You see Gracen, God already loves you and me and all people just the way we are!!!!! He sees our beauty and knows of our potentials. He puts us in places and experiences to help us grow and learn about the daughter’s we are supposed to be……..this is awesome!!!!!! These words also come from the Bible, they remind me that if I take a breath, give my worries/fears to God, slow down and work on calming my mind and body, eventually God speaks to me. He gives me ideas or I run into somebody that ends up teaching me a lesson through their story……..the point is if you allow God to speak to you, He will, then you don’t have to be so anxious!!!!!! As a new camper, I know you got this girl!!!! My prayer for you, is that you will grow more in your relationship with God and learn just how amazing you are through God’s eyes, this week at camp! I also pray that you continue having a blast at camp!!!! See you soon!!!!!! Love you girl!!!!

    Have a great day tomorrow, praying for you!!!

  9. Hey Gracen!
    Hope you are starting to sleep better at night. I know it’s hard for you to sleep away from home but my hope and prayer is that it will get easier as the week goes on. Your horse Disco is so pretty! Are you enjoying taking care of him/her? We will have to go horse back riding this Fall together! Hope you are getting to know all of the girls at camp with you and that you are making some new friends. Love and miss you!
    Love,
    Mom

  15. Hi Gracen! I hope you’re having so much fun! Did you enjoy the horses? I am praying for you as you continue with these last few days of camp and prepare for the hike. I pray that any anxieties you may be feeling are calmed and I pray that you see how much strength you have to get through the hike!!

  16. Hi Gracen!
    I have been watching the live videos of you and the other girls! Looks like your learning a lot about horses and working as a team with the other girls at camp. The tubing looked relaxing and fun. I hope that you are sleeping better now and get a good nights rest before heading to the hiking trails tomorrow. Enjoy your last day at Cran Hill and the trail ride tonight. Love you and miss you!

  19. Hey Gracen!!! I know we’ve had the chance to meet before but I loved having the chance yesterday to spend time getting to know you better. Plus I loved working on our masks together and watching your artistic ability come out! You girls seem to be having a great time and are building some great relationships. I will be praying for you as you leave for the hike today, and that God will continue to reveal Himself to you in mighty ways. I look forward to getting to know you even better throughout the next year and working with you on meeting your goals. I will see you Sunday when you all arrive home!

  20. Hi Gracen!
    Hope your first day hiking was a great one! How are your new hiking shoes working out? I will pray you sleep well in your tent tonight and that the rest of your trip goes well. Love and miss you!

  21. Wow. I can’t believe it’s Thursday already! You’re off on the hike! I pray for your safety and I also pray any nerves you may be feeling are calmed. I pray for your strength to make it through these next couple days. Gracen you can do amazing things! You can do it!

  22. Yay it’s Friday! How is the hike so far? I am praying for you’re continued safety and I pray you are able to get rest while amidst Gods creation! You’re almost there. Rely on him for your strength and call out to jume when you need it. He is there listening and watching out for you. You got this!

  23. Hi Gracen,
    Hope your hiking is going well! The pictures of the trail looked pretty. How is the tenting? I will see you tomorrow….can’t wait to hear about your camp adventures!
    Love,

  24. Hello Gracen! It’s been a while. I was just able to read your update and it’s so great to hear you are doing well in school academically. I am praying for you aunt as she travels back to the area, as well as your family as this will be a new adjustment. I know how hard it can be to be understanding and not argue. I am praying that God is able to present you with peace when you are presented with times like these. Keep up the great work trying to earn your marbles!!
