Plan a trip…

  • Research transportation, lodging, food, activities to get an idea of costs involved
  • Decide how much time you’d need for the trip

Summer Activities for Teenagers

I love to share my passion for family, faith, learning, and adventure! I am a worship pastor's wife, a homeschool mom to three teens (well, one has graduated), a former public school teacher and counselor, and a Ph.D. in educational psychology. At our church, I serve on the worship team and as the Fine Arts coordinator, helping students to discover, develop, and deploy their God-given gifts. I'm so excited for you to follow along on this joyous journey!
