Remembering with an Eternal Purpose

by Nancy Nelson

During the last few years, my immediate family has been stepping into eternity. Matter of fact, when my 94+ year old mom, now on Hospice care, slips into Heaven, I will be the only one left from the family into which I was born. Thankfully, there is a legacy opportunity that we’ve taken advantage of here at Warm Beach Camp.

A few years back, we memorialized a room in the new ADA Mount Baker Cabin for my sister, Peggy, who died when she was 35 years old. When Dad passed away 10 years ago, we had the opportunity to fund an Olympic View room in his memory. When the dedication services occurred for these facilities, family members carried memorial plaques into the rooms, and prayed for the guests who would be using these newly furnished rooms.

As I walk by these “sacred spaces” at Camp, I can’t help but realize that my family’s legacy continues as Christ-followers. Just recently, my husband Stan and I have pledged to fund the renovation of a Cascadian room in memory of his folks.

All but six of the thirty Cascadian rooms have been funded or pledged, providing the dollars needed for renovating the rooms. Would you be interested in funding a room? Please join us in making this facility top-notch and ready to serve the next generation. It’s an amazing way to remember or honor a loved one. Just give me a call, Nancy Nelson, at (360) 312-3979.

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
