Caitlyn Campos with her Daddy at the Harwood Jr. High Award Ceremony

Hey guys, sorry that’s it been awhile. I have been busy with my soccer packed, music performing, end-of-year testing, crazy schedule. I’m on my school’s Soccer B team. Last Friday was my awards ceremony, and boy was I in for big surprises!

The night before the Friday, May 17th 2013 Award Ceremony, I was trying on and looking to find a special dress to wear from my closet. My mom (step-mom Karen) and I went out to Ross to find the perfect dress for me to wear. We left Ross with two dresses and a cute white sweater to wear with the dresses. One was black with ruffles and white polka dots. The second was navy blue with a red belt and white skirt. I kind of look like a sailor in that dress. I picked the black with the white polka dots and I was ready for my awards.

That morning during first period, which is band for me, we got dismissed to the cafeteria. We were the first ones there. I got my first award in U.S. History, then I was the only one to get the Spanish Immersion award. I got an award for being a part of Math Club, and got the Lion’s Club award again this year. I had NO idea I would be getting ANY awards. I felt bad afterwards because I was the only one in my Spanish class to get awards, but I know also that I have worked hard for those awards.

Later that day, after playing a fantastic part in soccer game tournament, I left to go put on yet another dress for my induction into the “National Junior Honor’s Society.” It was quite a beautiful ceremony. Then I went to my mom’s (it was her weekend). So after all that hard work, I went to bed with five awards. I feel pretty special and tired cause after that completely packed long day. Talk to ya’ll later.

Love, Bestie

Have you ever gotten a school award? What were your awards in? What’s your favorite place to shop for a dress?

Why Caitlyn Campos Likes The Mix at Fellowship Church

The Mix is unbelievable. It’s sooo much fun, especially when I bring my best friends that are closest to me and really need to come with me to church. My Youth Pastor is soo funny, creative, smart, sneaky in a clever way, and totally understanding. Our Youth Pastors teach from the Bible and we learn in series that are based on topics. I have to be honest, we have done great ones so it is hard to name a favorite. Some of the ones that have stuck out for me: Singled Out, Three Words & Eight Letters, & House Party. Our current series is “BluePrint”. At The Mix, I feel like we are all in one group/nation when I’m there.

I love going because it really helps me finish my week out strong and feel refreshed and know that I’m never alone. I always have someone watching over me that loves me no matter how many times I mess up or what my mess ups are. It’s a great feeling knowing that I can go anywhere and know that Jesus Christ is following/with me.

The Mix especially helps me because I go back and forth, so I call my Mom’s side every Wednesday before I go to The Mix. If I’m told upsetting news, it always helps cheer me up knowing that I don’t need to understand everything because I put my trust in God and know He will guide me down the right path. I love the fact that I can show up all moody and bring all my problems with me, but I have an hour and half that I forget all about reality and bring back my focus on Christ. I leave The Mix feeling like I’m free from all that is happening in my life. I always leave feeling God guiding me and telling me to let Him take care of the problems that I don’t understand. I’m reminded of the power of God’s grace, love, trust, and forgiveness. I feel like I have someone to lean on when I start to lose my balance.

I know that I personally need help showing my God’s Team shirt more often when I’m out at school and basically my everyday life. But a little bit here and there will help me grow and shows that I’m a Christian and I’m proud of it! I would like to grow my relationship with God more cause I still have questions. I want Him to use me to spread His Word and bring more people to Him because everybody deserves to make a well informed decision on who Christ is.

Have you made a faith decision to be on “God’s Team”? What is your youth group like? Where is your special place to bring your problems?
