What I Know To Be True

Hello Hello. So good to be back. I hope everyone had a great week.

I spent the last 5 days in the Utah Mountains. At Girl's Camp. It was a great experience, but I am really glad to be home. As a leader, our days started at 4:30 and ended about 12:30. No vacation, that's for sure. Although it was to teach the girls, I always end up learning a lot.

Camp reminded me that...

1. There is a God.
How else do you explain the mountains, the stars, the lake, and the sun rise.

2. Our Youth are Good.
Youth get a bad rap. There are teenagers out there causing problems and wreaking havoc. But, there are more young people trying to be strong, smart, confident, and hard workers. They dream big.

3. God Made Dirt and Dirt Don't Hurt
You can go 5 days, without a shower, living in dirt, and survive. Although, I don't recommend it.

4. Girls will always be girls.
12-18 or 30-60. We have the same insecurities, the same dreams, and put us together and we still stay up late talking and giggling.

5. A Mother's job is never done.
It doesn't matter how far away I am from my family, my mind never leaves them. As I juggled my responsibilities at camp, my mind was still running through the minute by minute details of my family. I thought about how work was going for my husband, how our son's piano lesson was going, hoped they remembered their goggles for swimming, and prayed they got good nights sleep.

6. You love them like your own.
We are taught that when you serve others, you come to love them. My family just grew by 250, all girls.

7. All families have problems.
Some are just easier to hide than others.

8. Nothing is better than a welcome home hug.
No explanation needed.

9. Fancy sleeping bags are overrated.
I still prefer the big old sleeping bags. Plaid, puffy, and wide.

10. There is no recovery period.
I relearn this lesson every time I come home. You don't get to come home and rest, recover, unpack and relax. Nope, it's right back to being a mom.

11. Service (especially church service) and Motherhood can get complicated. 
This is a post for another time. When I have the guts to write it.  

12. Hot showers fix most things.
No explanation needed.



  1. agreed on the hot showers... my mini escape. sounds like you had a fun but tiring weekend.

  2. Welcome home, Heather! There is nothing quite like a week at girl's camp, is there?

  3. Bear Lake again this weekend! I am glad you had a good time at girls' camp. I couldn't go to all of ours this year because of work, and my husbands school schedule. Maybe next year:)

  4. Hunt family, you are right, hot showers ARE a mini escape. The week was fun. Really fun.

  5. Laura,
    Thanks for the welcome home. There is nothing like Girl's Camp. It blesses lives. Girls and Leaders.

  6. Amanda,
    Bear lake, sounds so fun. Sorry you didn't get to all your Girls Camp. Don't worry, they will ask you to go again, probably many times. :)

  7. Glad you had fun and survived.
    So true that all families have problems. Not sure if it's better to have the visible or hidden ones.
    And I struggle with the mom vs calling thing all the time. I can't wait for you to write that post!

  8. Andrea,
    I have wanted to write it for months, but I don't want it to come out wrong, if you know what I mean. I am nervous. I will get to it though. It is on my mind a lot.

  9. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Cora L. Sanchez from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
