I did not expect the thrill that came along with the first Pause event of the school year; food, music, friends, and new faces. I could tell I wasn’t the only one who felt that way because I could see all the excitement in all the other leaders as well. This year will have a lot of ups, and a lot of downs, but as long as people know that the LCM community will be there for support this year will be great. It’s awesome to see our group come together and I’m excited to see our hard work pay off this year.
As long as people feel welcomed like I was when I first started coming to events at Grace, I will be very happy. Throughout the whole first semester at the U, I was not involved with any religious group. It wasn’t until my second semester that I saw that there needed to be change in my life and that being closer to God was the fix. I thought I could do it on my own, but eventually I came to see I was walking down a path that I didn’t really want to walk down.
At first I thought LCM was pretty cool and I enjoyed going to all of their events. Not until becoming a leader and getting a behind the scenes look did I really understand how awesome our group really is. The work that everyone puts in and the teamwork that goes on is quite inspiring. This year is about to be a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to grow in my faith along with all of my friends here at LCM!
