Welcome to Gull Lake

We've arrived at Gull Lake!!

Six years ago we drove up to Michigan for our first time at GLM, having no idea what family camp American style was.

After four camps in 2008, 2010, 2012 and now in 2014, we know what to expect: a rousing welcome!!

Situated on Gull Lake (yes, it's a real lake!), this amazing Christian family camp has been going since 1920. They offer such a quality program for all ages, from babies up to adults.

Speaking of babies...just as we arrived, we saw my dear, long-time friend Karen and her family from Canada! I've known Karen since she was a little girl, and now here she is with her husband, four girls and newborn son! Such a sweet reunion with them.

That wasn't the only reunion going on: look who I found inside the ministry center!

Claire is on staff here at Gull Lake this summer, working with the newborns through toddler ages in a program called Cove Kids!

Dave will be leading the adults through the book of Philippians this week as he teaches in the "Tab", pictured here. It was built in 1904! It's the heart of this ministry, and a special place to be as we hear God's word taught throughout the week.

Located just across the street from the Tab, they added a brand new building to the ministry this year, and we get to stay in it for the week.

So excited about what God has in store for us all in the coming days!


  1. Love, love, LOVE seeing you there with Claire!

  2. Claire looks like a "happy camper"! Make sure to ask her if she has spotted any alligators yet!
