One awesome memory of my summer is my graduation/birthday party. Held on June 26, it was an absolutely stellar day. My family worked so hard for me to make the joint celebration of my graduation from high school and 18th birthday spectacular and they succeeded! It was just a great big perfect day, starting with getting off work early so I could come and help with set-up, to feeling so beautiful in my new orange (my favorite color) dress, to having everyone come and spend the day with me. My smile never left my face and I don't think I ever sat down the whole time. I just wanted to flit around the room like a butterfly, enjoying everyone being there with me. I'm so grateful to my God, my family and my friends for making that day so special for me. I'll always remember it.

I am Brittany, I am 15 and live in Broken Arrow, Ok! My best memory is moving! I moved back to Broken Arrow in July! I have had so much fun since me and my family moved! Being able to see family, friends, going to youth group, having a birthday party, going to a sweet 16 birthday party, starting school and just hanging out with friends!! I have had a great summer! =D

This summer I went on vacation with my family in the Canadian wilderness, we were cut off from technology- no cell phones. facebook, laptops, and blackberries! It was such a bonding experience for our family and I really got to reconnect with my younger brother who is 13 years old and is now "way too cool" to talk to his older sister! I really enjoyed the adventure not because we got to see the beauty of the Lord's creation and I had never seen the west coast of the continent before, but because my brother really opened up to me. I was able to share with him the reason why I choose to follow the Lord even though I do not HAVE to go to church and bible study anymore, now that I am in college and make my own decisions. I am praying for him everyday and long to be back in that Canadian wilderness just being real with one another.

My best memory of this summer has been when our parents took us to Cinncinati for the weekend. We went to the Newport Aquarium, went to a Reds game, and went to the Cincinnati Zoo. We got to stay in a hotel and swim in the pool! We had so much fun. I'll always remember this, especially since my family can't afford to do a lot of things. My name is Destiny and I'm 12 years old. I live in New Albany, IN.

Hey, I'm Jordan, I am 14 years old and I live in Smyrna, TN :)

The best memory I have from this summer would have to be going to church camp! It was AMAZING! I learned SO much about God and I've grown so much closer to Him since then. The coolest thing I did there would definitely have to be the water slide! That was so much fun :D I had a great time at camp this year and I hope I can go again next year!

Hi, my name is Samantha I am 15 years old and i live in Methuen, MA. :) My favorite memory of this summer was my trip to NC. We drove for 18 long hours but it was so worth it in the end. I got to spend time with family swimming, biking, kayaking, and just being together. I was also able to witness to my cousin, and she seemed interested so i am praying that God will just soften her heart. Overall this was a really great summer. :)

Hi, my name is Christy, I am 14, and I live in Clemmons NC. Early this summer, my youth group went on a music and missions tour in Atlanta, Georgia. It was quite possibly the most amazing experience of my life. Our youth choir sang at several churches, and a homeless shelter. We also did mission work, like throwing a block party at a trailer park. Now, I'm not saying that it was all work and no fun, we also went to the aquarium and a Brave's game. I formed many new friendships, and had some awesome experiences while growing closer to God.

I am Danielle, I am 16, and I live in Aurora, Colorado. I have a couple of favorite memories from this summer.... I went to Chicago with my best friend for a teaching children competition. We went to downtown Chicago and discovered we NEVER want to drive in the city! :)

My other really big summer even was moving from upstate New York to Aurora, Colorado! I had lived in upstate NY my whole life, so it has been a HUGE change! I really, really like Colorado and am so glad that I am starting to make some friends! :)

i'm Maddy, I'm 15 and I live in Winterville, NC. One of my best summer memories was at our river cottage this summer. i was on the pier with some of my great friends who all have cottages near mine. We were just swimming and splashing around. The sun was so pretty and I just closed my eyes and thanked God for that wonderful moment with all the people I love so much. Another favorite moment of mine was in this same little" river neighborhood" when we put together a 4th of July parade. I helped some little kids who are like my own siblings decorate their scooters/trikes/bikes and we all rode together and threw out candy to the few adults and people who weren't in the parade. Little special moments like that made up a greta summer for me.

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am 15 years old and live in Laguna Hills, California. I had an amazing summer. I went to Ecuador on a missions trip. One awesome memory from that trip was when we went to a church service in the village that we were serving. All of the worship was in Spanish and the village's native language, and it was really cool to realize that we could be serving the same God in different languages. Also, at the end of the service when the pastor said goodbye, he said we will see you again in heaven. I will be able to see all of the people that I met again in heaven, and then we won't have a language barrier.

Hi! My name is Alex and I'm 17 years old living in Arnold, MO.

My favorite summer memory is serving this summer on a mission trip and at camp.
I went to Mexico for 3 weeks and helped teach a training conference for the Christian teens there. I taught drama ministry with my brother. Even though we could only speak to them through a translator, I had a blast and made tons of new friends!
I was also a counselor at a girls camp and had tons of fun. They were such great girls and I want to go back next year for my third year as a leader!

My summer is always crazy but rewarding too. =D

My best memory from the summer has been going to (free!) concerts with my family! We've seen Kutless, Echoing Angels, Natalie Grant, Big Daddy Weave, and a bunch more this summer! I had so much fun spending time with my family and worshiping Jesus!

Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

Hey! This is my first entry to one of your contests! Our youth group at church has started a once a month outreach and fellowship event. I am on the student council so i get to help plan some of the events. Our kick-off for "First Friday" was August 6. We had over 100 youth and adults show up at our church! It was an amazing expeirence to be able to fellowship and reach out to these people. September 3rd was our second event and it turned out just as awesome...with God's help of course :)These monthly events were the highlight of my summer, and i'm sure they will be the highlight of my fall and winter too! God bless (:

Hi, my name is Jessica, I'm 16, and I live in Westminster, SC. One of my awesome memories would be from a christian summer camp I went to. The camp was great all week, but on the last day some kids started singing, while hanging out in the gym, and the next thing we know the a whole revival has started. About 19 kids got saved, and it was awesome!

I'm Emily, i'm 12, and I live in Zephyrhills, Florida. My best summer memory was when my parents took my brother and I up to Iowa to meet my dad's side of the family. It was my first plane ride and I was really excited. We went at the perfect time of year. All the soy beans and corn were about to be harvested and it made for great pictures. My favorite part of the trip was when we rode the boat out onto the lake by my dad's friend's lake house. We rode on a raft behind the boat and were pulled all around the lake. I'll always remeber this trip and can't wait to go back again!

I'm Francie and I'm 13! I live and Birmingham, AL and go to Clearwater Community Church.mThis summer I went on my first misson trip. We went to Tanzania. The group consisted of me, my mom, my brother, and 20 others. We went to a partner church to help them start a children's ministry. We arrived on Tuesday and the events started Wednesday! We planned to do a backyard bible club with our hopes set on at least 30 kids. We set our goals extemely high for what the partner church's, Word Alive, expectations were. When we got there there was about 20 kids there. By the time we had finished singing our first song there were 50. All of our expectations had been highly exceeded. We broke off into age groups from 2 to 13. By the time we met up for large group at the end we had over 300 people!!! This continued for the next 2 days. On Saturday we took them all to the church and had built a set and had lights and sound all set up. We told the story of the resurection of Jesus and his life and performed it! The kids LOVED it!! The main religion in that area was islamic and many of the children that came that day were muslim. The best part about the trip was knowing that all those little lost souls came to know Jesus Christ!!! It was an amazing journey physically as well as spiritually! I was changed in my walk with Christ and have been shining his light!!!! Another part of the trip was visiting the cancer center. This was a very emotional part. All of the patients were almost certain of their deaths and you could see it on their faces. Little children that weren't even barely 4 were wandering arould the fly infested room that evryone shared. We shared conversations (we used a translator) and gave the patients soap. They all thanked us and the children all jumped up and down with excitement when they recieved the soap. SOAP!! It was amazing the poverty and needs of the people. I loved my trip and can't wait to go back next year!! I won't ever forget the spiritual times I had shared with my brothers and sisters in Christ!

The best part of my summer was Camp Erchomai. Erchomai is greek and means "I go". The whole camp was about not being ashamed of your faith, but instead being passionate about Christ. It was absolutely life changing. I made tons of new Christian friends who love me and support me. I jumped into a giant mud pit and went paint balling for the first time. And i grew even more in love with Jesus! Since the camp I have been on fire for Jesus. I can honestly say I am not ashamed of my religion at all and I do all I do in the name of Jesus Christ. I know I will NEVER forget Camp Erchomai!! :)

I am Sarah! I live in Virginia Beach, Va, am 15 and I love to run. We went to Hatteras, N.C. for a week and ran on the beach every morning. One morning I woke up early and went south to where there were no houses and no people. I was alone on the beach as I counted the waves and the birds with the dunes towering over me to my right. It was an amazing time and I was overwhelmed by beauty and the sound of nature because this world is what God has created for us because he loves us that much. I can imagine that heaven will be like that, an eternal beach more beautiful than any here on Earth.

Hey! my name is Anna Gustavus and i'm 13 yrs old! I live in Leesburg Va.

My most awesome memory is doing a lemondade stand w/ my 3 younger siblings for our cousins who were in Zambia @ the time.So we were raising money for them. Well one of our customers came up and said what she wanted.My lil' sister gave her annual lecture/story of why we were doing the stand, and the lady gasps and says 'I'm from Zambia!' so we get to talking and we radio my mom on the walky talkie so she can come up to the top of the street, and turns out she, Mrs. Martha, worked @ an orphanage that worked w/ the orphanage that our cousins were adopting from (House of Moses or HOM).

When our cousins finally got back to the states we played w/ Jeb Israel Lemmond (I'll tell you how he got his name in a min. really cool story!). Anyway, we played in one of those inflatable balls that you can get IN and roll down the hill in so i got in w/ Jeb, me being the oldest and most careful ;), and he had big smiles and giggles all the way down and back up, SSSOOOO CUTE! Mrs. Martha ended up visiting our house and talked.

The way Jeb got his name.... My Aunt and Uncle were looking to see if he already had a name 2 the HOM. the nurse that was closest and had really attached to him said she called him Jeb-Jeb but he had and original name Jacob. I'm sure you all know the story of how Jacob wrestles w/ God and gets his name changed to Israel because he has endured a lot! So therefore we was named Jeb Israel Lemmond!!

well there is my extremely long memory! lol ;)

My name is Faith, and I'm 14 years old (but almost 15 because my birthday is October 5th) :) and I live in Pella, Iowa. My favorite memory of the summer would have to be going to our church camp!! I love camp and every year I so look forward to it! I really learned a lot about myself and my relationship with Jesus when I was away from home. They really challenged us to live All out for Christ and to not just leave and have "camp fever" for a little while, but to always live on a "Jesus Fever."

My awesome memory from the summer is church retreat. We went to Panama City Beach . Because I was going into high school, I got assigned a new small group. My last small group wasn't one that I fit in with well. I never even wanted to go to that church service because I felt awkward and unwanted in the group. So, I was very nervous to go on the trip. We got all set up in our hotel room and I still didn't feel any better about the situation. No one wanted to room with me, so I was stuck rooming with the small group leader. This ended up being a blessing. I got very close to my small group leader and I was able to work with her to forgive people who had hurt me in the past. I made a major step for my life during this trip and it all started with me rooming with her. I kind of hung out with her throughout the trip (I'm shy when it comes to meeting new people), but I ended up meeting new people because of how out going she was. I also got to see other people who were in my small group in a new light than I had before. Now, I get excited to go to church every week and am active in my youthgroup. I know that if people may have wanted (not necassarily wanted, but asked me to) me to room with them, I wouldn't be this involved in my youth group. It was a total God thing.

My summer was awesome there was so many memories, but the one that I think about the most is Montreat. Montreat,NC is the town of a christian college and many other christian activities. My family and I went to a christian life conference this summer. We rented there a house for a week. Every day we went to the classes they were great! I learned alot about having faith and trusting God. We also played games and creek hopped. In Montreat I get to meet new friends and people my age. I LOVE Montreat!
