Joni & Friends Family Camp

One great way to overcome debilitating self-pity is to give yourself over to the cause of others and invest your time and experiences into encouraging and loving other people who are also suffering.

This summer, some friends of mine and I are volunteering at JAF Family Camp for a week. We will be at the camp, paired up with a disabled person and their family and we will play with them and talk with and encourage them. This camp is an awesome opportunity for those of use with perceptual disabilities to reach out to those with mental and physical disabilities. For me, there's no better cure for self-pity but to spend time with someone with more severe disabilities than mine to realize how merciful God has been in my life by witnessing first hand how merciful he has been in theirs.
