Hey, party people! My name is Annie, and I am a senior here at GCD. I will graduate in the spring with my bachelor’s in Christian Leadership. This being my first post, I just wanted to share a bit about me. I love taking pictures and doing what I can to try to capture what I perceive to be beautiful. Photography, to me, isn’t entirely about capturing the memories, but it’s about capturing, just a bit, of the beauty God created. I’m one of those kinds of people who feel the most connected with God when I’m in nature. It’s when I get to experience some of the Majesty of God. So to me, pictures are about saving snapshots of the incredible Being that is Christ. #IGTakeOver #StudentLife #GCD #WhatElseDoIHashtag? #OhWell
I’m gonna take you guys on a trip down my memory lane. This is a picture from my very first missions trip. I was 17 years old and fresh out of high school. It was a trip filled with laughing, crying, and basically every emotion in the human spectrum. This trip literally changed my life. I got to experience God in so many new ways, and He ignited a fire in my soul that continues to burn to this day. On this trip, I made friends that will last a lifetime. TheExperience Internship and GCD really equipped me with the tools I needed in order to be successful on this trip. I can not wait to go back. #CostaRica #MissionsTrip #IgnitingAGeneration
One thing that you might not know about me is that I absolutely adore sunsets. Not only are they beautiful, but they remind me that with every setting sun comes the promise of a new day, a new beginning. A new day where we can position ourselves and our attitudes in such a way that, no matter what happens in the day, we can say at the end of the day that it was a good day. As my dad says, “your attitude determines your altitude”. New days can bring new attitudes, new outlooks on life.
Well, people of Instagram, it’s the last post of my #InstaTakeOver. Much to my mother’s chagrin, I am not afraid heights. Hanging off of cliffs(and sitting at the edge of parking garages) are things that I greatly enjoy. But for all you moms out there, I am very careful. Also, one last thing you might not know about me, I have lived in Fayetteville, NC all of my life. I absolutely adore traveling, but I always love coming home. Fayetteville may not seem like much to most people who have lived other places, but it’s home. No matter where I end up in the future, I will always love coming back home. Well, that’s all from me. Thank you for putting up with me! It’s been my pleasure to take over GCD’s Instagram for a day.
