Meet Ryan Hernandez, Your New Best Friend.

Posted by on Apr 09, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

Back in the summer of 2012, we might have kicked back after dinner at Singing Hills or Echo Valley and asked ourselves, “How does it get better than this?” Great food, after all, is a trademark at LLYC. Meet Ryan Hernandez, Camping Programs Kitchen Manager for the Foundations for Laity Renewal, who started to manage […]

“I have a love Haiti relationship.”

Posted by on Apr 03, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

This post was written by the talented LLYC photographer (and writer) Marissa Licarione. Every year a group from LLYC goes to Jacob’s Well in Limbe, Haiti for a week and runs a three-day camp for over 200 Haitian children, provides medical care for the village and completes a construction project. To apply for the trip […]

A’aight, guys, does everybody remember that old Jeff Foxworthy stand-up routine, “You Might be a Redneck”? (I think I might have just given away my age.) If you need to be reminded, go here. Well, we’re about to play an LLYC version, so tighten your Chaco straps and see how much of a camper you izzz: […]

Community Like Ours

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

Hey folks, let me take a minute to highlight something really cool happening here in Austin that I think you guys will appreciate. It’s a farm and a kind of village; a budding community of volunteers that have been working together to meet the long-term needs of the “chronically homeless.” I know you’re all probably […]

A Daily Fight to Understand

Posted by on Mar 20, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

I’ve been a believer for at least 14 years, and I still have the idea that one day I’ll arrive at Spiritual Maturity. I’ll wake up and immediately reach for my Bible, forgetting about time and other commitments and basking in the truth of the Gospel. The truth is, however, that I need to be […]

Sometimes I need a little history…

Posted by on Mar 12, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

So far this Spring Break, I’ve had the sense that nothing we do is special enough, big enough, bold enough- the feeling that we are just wasting precious time. In my heart (if not out loud) I have been grumbling nonstop: “Nothing is working out the way I want it to.” I needed something to snap […]

One more thought about Lent…

Posted by on Mar 09, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

I’m still trying to figure out what I think about this season in the Church. Although technically I am observing Lent by abstaining from Facebook, my heart has yet to get the memo. Our LLYC team has begun their trip to Haiti, and I long for the kind of clarity and purpose that I imagine […]

Whether or not you choose to observe Lent this year, these are some pretty great ideas for any believer in Christ to think about. Personally, I think #8 and #11 sound really cool. Read the full post here. 1. “This year I’m giving up shoes as often as possible. I’ll still wear shoes if I’m […]

The Camp Beard

Posted by on Feb 26, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

When I saw this post in Outside Magazine, I immediately thought of summer at LLYC and the constant pressure for all men to grow amazing beards like Trey Tull and Chandler Pruitt. Seriously, what other accessory goes so well with a Chaco tan and a radio? “If you can’t grow a beard, buy one. As DNAInfo.com […]
