It’s necessary to go outside your comfort zone
In school, it’s necessary for me to work myself past the point of comfort in order to get the grades I want. To improve my times in cross country, I have to go through a whole lot of pain so that I can become faster. To develop meaningful friendships, I know that I have to go...

Learning to be an adult: A necessary but tiring process
I once heard a quote that said college students are a lot like cats – they can pretty much take care of themselves, but they probably shouldn’t be allowed to. Though I am only 17 and a high school student, after a few experiences recently, I most definitely can relate. My...

Finding happiness through God amidst the chaos
I have been told that I am a happy person, which is kind of funny to me, considering that I’m one of the rare people whose main goal in life isn’t happiness. I confess that most “life is about being happy” quotes irritate me. You see, my ultimate goal in life is to make...

Running evolves, just like life does
In case you didn’t know, running means a lot to me, and I am in cross country and track at my school. I have been in these sports a while now, but to keep this article a decent length, let’s just start with my freshman year. I came into my cross country freshman year a bit...

Tips for keeping your faith in school
They say that your faith should be your biggest priority, and that’s the truth. As a high school student, though, that challenge can be a bit intimidating. Being in high school when you’re in sports and activities and take tough classes is like running on a hamster wheel while...

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

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...

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...
