Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to do?

Since 2013, I have been honored to be part of the writing team for WinShape Camps, where I write the curriculum for Junior Girls. Each year the camps have an over-arching theme; in the past we have explored a ship, a city, an amusement park, an old house, a sheep ranch, and a rainforest.

In 2021, the campers will explore something that is near and dear to my heart; the theater. While learning about what it takes to put on a theatrical production, they will learn about how they fit into God’s bigger story.

Where do I fit in with everyone else? These are huge questions that affect our thoughts, our feelings, and our actions—big and small. In Ephesians 2:10, God’s Word gives us some great insight into the answer to those questions? “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” We are each a unique masterpiece of God, designed with intricate divine care.

Shakespeare wrote that, “all the world’s a stage,” and that each of us has a part to play. God has written the most incredible adventure story of love and purpose…and He made each of us to play a very unique role, designed by Him. God created us all, values us all, and loves us all with an amazing love. But He created each of us with our own talents and skills and personalities. We are all different, yet equally important, with our specific parts to play. So placed please, for WinShape Camps 2021, where we will explore this amazing story God has written and discover what it means that you were Made For This!
