Watching my son have his 'firsts' on the water or in a deer stand!

Best Fishing Memory:

Favorite Scripture:

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

God is a God of second chances through Jesus Christ. No one is too lost or too bad. With Jesus there are new beginnings!

Any spiritual lessons you have learned on outdoor events:
The Lord has done some cool things~ it was all for us and to show us His goodness. We should praise Him for it and not worship the outdoors in His place.
