  1. Great post! I worked with Habitat for Humanity when I was in college, it was quite rewarding. Looks like you all had fun. Because it’s a pet peeve of mine…. The scripture you posted Matt. 18:20 is being used out of context. It is in the context of church discipline that that verse is used in scripture. Many times I see it used to promote prayer gatherings and in this case weekend getaways with friends. Let’s not be a people that throw verses here and there to promote their agendas. Gods word is powerful and not to be taken lightly. 2Timothy 3:16 ~ praying you take this correction in love.

  2. Dear Dawn,

    WOW, I LOVE your real-life Beach House with the girls!!! What a wonderful time it looks like you all had!! Lots of great fellowship, good food, and awesome friends–the best! And I love how you all wanted to do a service project together–that’s the best way to bond with friends, for sure! That truly speaks of the deeply Christ-centered hearts which you all have!! I’m sure Habitat for Humanity was extremely grateful for your help. What a wonderful way to connect with your friends (in) RL–you are an example to us all! Thanks for sharing! Many blessings!

  3. Great post! Wish I could have been there! Habitat for Humanity is a fun organization to be a part of. I love hammering nails, sweeping floors, painting walls, etc. It is a good feeling to know that some deserving person will get a home.

    You gals looked like you were having fun–real honest open fun. Just chatting about God, life & sharing stories with each other–making friends. Something I would love to do!@

    • Beth, you sound like you’ve got some experience with Habitat! I think working together with friends is a great way to volunteer and serve.

  4. I supersize love this. Like LOVE it! Had completely forgotten about my insane leaping on the beach. Can NOT believe you actually captured it and that I will now never live it down. 🙂 Love it.

  5. I love Habitat for Humanity. I did some work with them when I was in college. I love hearing about your relationships that have developed online and remain constant offline. It is encouraging me to comment, which is something I never do. I am trying to step out a little and not just be a blog stalker. 🙂 Thanks for the fun post..
