More importantly, I am going to a Young Life camp as a leader next week! Young Life is a youth organization that I was involved with throughout my life, first as a student and later as a leader/mentor. I got a call yesterday informing me that they have a spot for me if I want to go next week as a leader. My immediate reaction was 'Lauren, you have way too much work to do' ...we are leaving in less than a month and a half. SCARY! but exciting :) As I thought about it, I realized WHY NOT (my new life moto)?!?! This is the PERFECT way to balance myself before we hit the road. Every summer that I left a Young Life camp, I returned with a new and fresh perspective. I could not think of a better way to find inspiration and meaning for this doc than to be a leader at a camp for a large group of young girls.
Im excited because I get to bring my camera to shoot too! I will definitely get some compelling footage for the doc :)
