Whitney found a four leaf clover at camp.  I could not believe it.  She told me she was going out to look for one and I said something very mother-like such as “ok, have fun.”  knowing it would keep her busy for a few minutes, but also knowing there was no way on earth she would ever find one.  Five minutes later she came back with a four-leaf clover.  I did not think they actually existed…until Whitney found one.

Looking at this picture, I can not help but think that the four leaf clover is so symbolic of my Whitney.  She is so special, so unique. It is hard to find another like her.

This was the first year at camp that all 3 girls actually had the attention span to sit through all of the morning worship session without having to leave.  I used to stick it out with them till they were too fidgety or noisy and then we would leave.  I was so excited to be able to sit through the entire sessions with them.  One of the goals all of the speakers gave the campers was to share Jesus with 2 of their friends when they got home.  They challenged them to imagine the impact of Jesus on their friends’ lives.  Both Maddie and Whitney wrote down 2 friends names right away. 

We got home from camp Saturday.  The phone was ringing when I walked in the door.  It was Whitney’s friend…one of the two that Whitney had written down.

Whitney played at her house all day.  Whitney invited the friend to church.  While we were in the car, Whitney said, “Mom!  She has been reading the Bible we gave her, and today I asked her if she wanted to pray to Jesus and give her life to him, and she said YES!  We prayed right there in her room!”

I am so proud of Whitney.  The uniqueness God has blessed her with is drawing so many to Jesus already, and she is only 8 years old.  I am amazed.

    I had a blast with Whitney at camp. I was walking through our cluster the day before she found the clover and thought it was the perfect place to find one. Then the next morning she showed me her’s.
