Life Beyond LOG – Ashley
At the Seniors On A Rise event last weekend, our seniors spent some vertical time thinking about who they wanted to be as they move beyond LOG and into the rest of their life. Ashley Decker (LOG #69) wrote the following:
LOG has helped me develop into the person I want to be. That is compassionate, confident, dedicated, and faithful. So beyond this program I hope to continue conforming my heart to the Lord’s plan for me and to just be a kind person. My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11 which says that the Lord has plans to prosper us, not to harm us, plans for hope and a future. So I know that whatever my future may be that I can trust that God will make it good.
This fall I will be attending the University of Notre Dame and although I don’t know what I will study there yet I hope that the next four years will give me the tools necessary to further God’s kingdom and support myself and others. I want to be helpful and make a positive difference in the world and the hearts and minds of other people, particularly young people. Maybe I will work with children or even get involved with youth ministry.
LOG has taught me the importance of community, service, and above all love. I hope these three things will be integral in my life outside of LOG. I desire to serve people in many different capacities, make great relationships, and have a family just as beautiful and powerful as my LOG family in my next stages of life. If people were to say anything about me after I die, I’d hope it would be something along the lines of “She had a heart for service” or “she really spread joy.”
Life is often compared to a journey. I’d like to travel many places along the way, seeing and doing great things, going through hills and valleys. Regardless of the destinations, I am content knowing that God will be my GPS, guiding me on this journey that is ultimately a gift from Him.

The Next Step: L•4•G #20
July 28-30, 2017 (note change of date)
L•4•G is the next step beyond a LOG weekend.
Saturday’s focus is on growing in your Love•4•God. We experience God’s love for us in our LOG weekends. L•4•G is when we try to learn how to love God back – through prayer, quiet times, Bible study etc. This year, our leaders will be our very own McKevor (McKenna & Trevor Killion).
Sunday’s focus is on putting our love into action as we learn to Lead•4•God in our homes, schools, clubs, churches and friend groups. This year’s leader will be Katie Mulligan who attended LOG #1 in California and until just recently led LOG in New Jersey.
PS from Terry – if you are currently a high school junior, take this piece of advice. The things we learn and experience during L•4•G are not just important life lessons. These are good tools for anyone who has hopes of serving as a CoLeader during their senior year. Just saying …
