Day 6

By Scot Pollok on

Kids and I were up early and hit breakfast. Another hilarious time with exceptionally good food. FAST FORWARD to family devo where mom joined us. Back up immediately afterward for the Kids to go off with their groups - Liza and I entered the last speaker session with the Adults.  I shared...

Day 5

By Scot Pollok on

Thursday is a lot like Tuesday here at camp. Two speaker sessions, lots of activities for the kids and an opportunity for Liza and I to take a nap in the afternoon.  We began the day with the best breakfast so far - including hilarious skits - and then FAST FORWARD, where we doubled up and...

Day 4

By Scot Pollok on

Wednesday here at family camp is different. Hump day is a completely free day for parents. So we decided to sleep in (Liza and I stayed in bed until almost noon) and the kids decided to get up and go (they went to breakfast and morning activities). We pushed pause on our family devo as to allow...

Day 3

By Scot Pollok on

Tuesday was a long day. But God was good. Liza endured well.  The kids and I went to breakfast and then FAST FORWARD and our counselor Goodie came back to our cabin for family devo. Then all four of us went up the hill again for the first of two speaker sessions for the day. It was great...

Day 2

By Scot Pollok on

First full day of family camp is in the bag. Kids are zonked and Liza is all tucked in, hopefully already sleeping. I am at the kitchen table in our great cabin writing to you and refreshing my two talks for tomorrow. Going to hopefully have a good prayer time after that and then get some sleep...

Back to Camp (a different one)

By on

Today got off to a diverse start. As I laid down to sleep in the wee hours of the morning, Liza was tossing and turning very frustrated. Friday night was one of the “best” night's sleep in a long time and then Saturday was one of the “worst.” We tried another long back...

Glorious Answered Prayer

By Scot Pollok on

Liza and I both slept in quite late today, till around noon. When she got up, she reported that last night was the best night sleep she has experienced in a very long time. That is a direct answer to prayer and a tremendous blessing.  Several other factors are involved we think. First, the...

Assembly Required

By Scot Pollok on

God's greatest gifts come with some assembly required. Not to be cute or cliche, I think that is where Liza and I are today.  Recently, as I bragged, my sweet wife, in the midst of her pain, arranged for some special Father's Day gifts for me. One of them was a beautiful gas grill...

Declaring Dependence

By Scot Pollok on

What a day to celebrate as an American. We should be grateful to God for all the blessings we enjoy in our great country. I am. We are.  As I sat with Jesus this morning, I read in 2 Chronicles, according to my plan through the Bible this year. While 2 Chronicles may not be the first stop...

How Are You?

By Scot Pollok on

How Are You?  It's the right question to ask. Not much else to say. Nothing wrong with the question. The problem is, it's really difficult to answer. I've been asking Liza that question. It just feels right. It is right to ask. But she doesn't have an answer. Correction: she would like to...
