Hey K2 Kanakuk Friends,
Well, this summer Kanakuk had the huge honor and blessing of having Jennie Allen as our girls' staff purity speaker. It was a raw, fun, real and honest message from Jennie and centered around Romans 8:1-2...

"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death."

Anyways, so after kamp I actually had one of Jennie's book. I had had it for a while I must admit as I am not a great reader of any sorts outside of a quiet time in God's Word with Mickey Mouse or Jake and the Neverland Pirates theme music in the background or quite the reader of any children's books specifically the Dolly Parton Free Imagination Library books my littles get each month...other than that you will not see me thumbing through pages of ads and west elm magazines not included.

BUT for some reason, I actually started reading this...and have finished it. I know, surprise! It was good. It was hard in some ways as the title is the prayer that absorbs the book..."Lord, I'll do anything." Anything to break the complacency of comfort, anything you call me to do, anything meaning all trust and hope and security and understanding is only found in HIM. ANYTHING. I think I can pray it, and really mean it...I think. I hope. I love Jennie's writing as she isn't this over the top, non-approachable or real writer...she doesn't ask for her readers to sell everything they own and move to a tribe of women with no shirts...she honestly and vulnerably just prays but my favorite line in the whole book was this...

"So do you everyday and your ordinary. Godliness is found and formed in those places."

For me this is life...the everday. The diapers, the cutting of 3 littles food every meal, the balance of life, the finding of Jesus in my mission of being on a floor all day with building blocks...the EVERYDAY. Jesus, may my anything come as YOU have it each day.

Go read a's really good for your brain. Seriously.

Be awesome & love Jesus,
