Here are some highlights of my time in Alaska so far. It's been a busy season, so the updates I have are not as lengthy. Enjoy the pictures!
 Casey and I at Denali National Park.
 My friends and I at the Husky Homestead.
 The silly folks that I live with.
 Just hanging out at North Pole, AK and visited Santa's house.
 The Alaska Oil Pipelines.
 Me with some crazies after we conquered rising creeks, flooded machines, and scared customers.
I joined the local softball team!
We took a little walk to a spot my friends here have named the Hobbit House. 
And one more highlight to add, last month I got to go on a summit flight, met some cool people and flew around the summit of Mt. McKinley/Denali. It was quite amazing. The whole time I was speechless.

I've been reading through Philippians and God is continuing to speak to me through these two verses.The first verse says that the peace of God is powerful enough to protect my heart and mind and the other states for us to not dwell on the past, but to press forward because it's better for us. That's what I am going to try my best to do because it's better and good.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:12-14

The Best 25th Birthday I've Ever Had

On the eve of my birthday some friends and I went out for dessert, drinks and dancing.
 I then came home to this wonderful cake made by Hannah!
 I took part in a Danielle sandwich...
 ...went on a little boat ride on our lake...
 ...played two games of softball and won both (no picture included)!! Woo!
...had this wonderful birthday cherry pie made for me by the wonderful Ashley...
 ...was serenaded with a guitar and harmonica at a bon fire...
...and then spent some time with God and then went to bed.

It was the best 25th birthday ever. :) Thanks everyone!
