Hello Friends!

As the year winds down here at Barrier Island, we wanted to take some time to look back and reflect on what it has meant to live and breathe the life of a naturalist. From move-in day, to nights spent playing board games in the living room, to afternoons in the sun, there has been laughter, tears, fellowship, frustrations , but more than anything else, a permeating joy. We wish to share with you a glimpse into our lives, each and every one of them, for the past year. We all count ourselves as immeasurably blessed to have been a part of this family, even though it was for such a fleeting time. We hope you enjoy this small look into our world, and we thank you all for being part of it.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
