Speaking in tongues? Waving arms? This is no Lutheran camp
Ever since I was 10 years old, I have gone to Camp Cherith – a non-denominational Christian camp in the area - every summer. Camp has been an amazing experience and really helped me grow in my faith. Ever since I knew it existed, I wanted to graduate their leadership program,...

Want to be liked by all? Don’t be a columnist
Since I have started high school, I have had quite the journey. The journey has been interesting and exciting, especially in this past year. I have learned a lot about what I stand for and who I am as person. One of the things that I have discovered is that I am a bit of a magnet...

Seeking God’s destiny means seeking out best opportunities
In Jeremiah 29:11, the Bible says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Many take this verse out of context, and it’s easy to see why. When singled out of its passage,...

Finding miracles, even small ones
As you may have read last month, I got the privilege of having a wonderful fifth grade Sunday school class. The wonderful thing about having an intelligent Sunday school class is that they ask you great questions. One of the better questions I have been asked is from a rather bright...

Holly McCamant: Definition of a nerd
My parents are the definition of a cute plant nerd couple. In our house, there is a small table crammed with a bunch of unusual plants. For fun, my parents watch nature documentaries together. When in the grocery store, my dad examines all of the fruit and attempt to figure out...

Teaching Sunday school is fun with right age group
This past year, I decided to start teaching Sunday school. For some reason, this decision came sort of at the last minute. I figured that if I was going to become a camp counselor, I should at least be a Sunday school teacher I don’t know why I hesitated, as it is one of the...

Prepare for toughest year, and 10 other pieces of advice for incoming juniors
Every year, I have finished off the school year with an article giving advice to an incoming class. The first year I gave advice for the incoming freshman, the second year I gave advice to incoming eighth graders, and this year I will give advice to this year’s incoming juniors. I...

Learning about life at The Candy Store
For about a year and a half now, I have been spending my Saturdays at a place that many Detroit Lakes residents (and plenty of tourists as well) know as The Candy Store in Becker Pet and Garden. I work in the candy store now, but it’s almost a little funny how it had always been...

Christianity, science and how they coincide
It’s a little weird being a serious Christian who also accepts science in a world where extremes have a tendency to be exemplified. I love the Christian camp I attend more than any other place in the world, but there are many there who think that it’s strange that I don’t...

Frazee has positive but competitive fans
A couple of weeks ago, I went down to watch our wrestling team compete at the state tournament. If you haven’t heard about the Frazee wrestling team, they are quite the competitive team that has a tradition of going down to state year after year. However, this was my first year...

Don’t let stress beat you
This week in College Psychology, we started to cover the topic of stress. I don’t think that a better week could have been chosen because so far this has been one of most stressful weeks I have experienced this school year. This has resulted in me spending a lot of time thinking...

There is plenty to be thankful for this year
Every year on Thanksgiving, families say what they are thankful for. This year, like many years, I was a little too hungry and focused on the food to list everything. However, I am lucky enough to have an newspaper column where I can touch on that. The first thing that comes...

Holly McCamant: Not photogenic? No one cares, you shouldn’t either
Let’s make things clear. I am not what you would call a photogenic person. I don’t think I look bad in the real world, and my school portraits aren’t a disaster. However, with photos, I qualify as extremely unphotogenic. Just ask the boys on my cross country team about...

Success isn’t all about your career
I’m constantly being told that having a career is very important, and I agree. I want to have a successful career in international relations and to have a big impact. Making a difference with my life is very high on the list of things that matter to me. However, I think that...
