Our Peace


Our Place of Peace!! Camp Glisson….oh how we love thee. This place is so magical for the Freeman Family. This is a camp that Paul and I grew up attending in the summers, where we both worked as counselors when we were in college, where we started dating, where he proposed 6 months after, where we married 12 months later, and where we baptized our first born, Elijah. It is my spiritual home and where I come to ‘connect’ again. It is also where McKinley and I used to come every day, when she and I lived in Dahlonega, to run and get our exercise. So she was ecstatic when she saw the gates of Glisson the other day.


I took the boys and McKinley last Friday on a little trip to see the Fall leaves. It was cloudy, foggy, and just a PERFECT fall day!! We had so much fun! I gave them a tour of the entire camp, and Elijah cannot WAIT to be a camper!

Above is McKinley enjoying her favorite place. She even got in the COLD water just so that she could swim.


This is the most wonderful rustic chapel where Paul and I married 7 years ago, and where I feel the most connected and whole! I love walking through the big wooden doors, and will never forget the smell.


Elijah talking to his new friend, God, about his friends and all the plants =)


What I try to teach my children every day!


After the excitement of our tour, we took a little hike through a back trail where I was able to show the boys ‘Fred Glisson’s old cabin. Of course Elijah had to be silly and make a funny face =) I am posting more pictures on our website since there are too many to post on here.   We LOVE this place and can’t wait to go back soon.
