The idea of having an entire computer capable of connecting with the world in the palm of our hand is no longer a novel idea. It was not that long ago, however, that smartphones were a futuristic concept. The first iPhone debuted fifteen years ago. Even then, social media was not nearly as prevalent. 

Today, we do everything with our phones. They hold the means by which we connect with friends and family, our calendars, to-do lists, photos, and wallets. We feel so lost without our phones we actually purchase devices that help us locate them. 

Unfortunately, sometimes for our teens, it seems like all their relationships and most of their lives exist inside a small rectangle. It is vital to help your teens unplug from their phones and other screens. 

Last Christmas I received the best present from my parents! They gave me an adventure trip to Hawaii with Created for Adventure. Even better, my best friend received the same gift from her parents!

What to Wear on a Teen Adventure Trip?

Wednesday, December 01, 2021

When your teen registers for adventure camp, there is so much to which they can look forward to. The anticipation builds from the moment you register to the day they begin packing their bags. They can’t wait to experience camp, see God’s creation, and make new friends. 

While all the excitement and buzz may be attributed to the camp itself, preparation is among the primary benefits of the overall experience. 

Leave It Better Than You Found It

I’ll never forget the time I gave the keys of my house to my sister while I was away in Alaska for the summer. I was gone for three months and my sister, Jennifer was going to keep an eye on things for me. The moment I stepped into the house I was shocked!

There was no trace of my sister, or her belongings, and the house looked better than I had ever seen it before. The floors were spotless, the tables were dusted, and the house smelled clean.

Not only did she take the time to clean up after herself, but she left the house better than she found it. Wouldn’t it be nice if we practiced this same principle to the trails we hike, and the places we camp?
