1). Blog Entry: Leaders Corner - Creative Students
     Our Nebraska Summer Camps will begin in a couple weeks. We've been quickly finishing all of our plans to be ready, many of which include quite a bit of creativity and new ideas. It's fun to try new and exciting things, but it's also important because our students love new experiences and tons of creativity. This is part of who they are in this generation, valuing media and technology and exploring issues that may be untouched until this point. We need to help our kids value their creative spirit, and recognize that this is a Godly trait, because its one of the first things we ever discover about God in the Bible. Here's some signs of creativity in our students, from David Pafford in his book, Rise:

Traits of Creative Kids
- They value experiences
- They share broad interests
- They have an attraction to complexity
- They are not quick to be judgmental
- They exhibit high energy
- They value autonomy and independence
- They take great initiative and exude self-confidence

1). Blog Entry: Life Lessons - Volunteers
     This past week it rained almost every day. There was a brief moment of dryness on Thursday, and we decided to try to sneak a cement pour into the plans for our camp. I had an important meeting in Lincoln, but I called a few of my friends and asked if they would still go to Lexington to help us. They agreed and went out on their own to battle the cold day and pour a new sidewalk in front of our gym. It wasn't fun or easy, but they volunteered to pitch in and help out. LIFE LESSON - We should be generous with our time when our friends ask for help.
