Estate Planning for Your Children and Your Values One benefit of my job is getting to sit down at kitchen tables with families as they share their blessings and concerns. I have noticed while reviewing estate planning documents that well over 95% do not address a family’s Christian values nor the specific issues their children […]

    Encountering God

    Learn. Remember. Live. Some of my most memorable experiences as a youth were the times I spent at Hume Lake. I looked forward to playing broom hockey in order to defend our championship title, playing kajabe can-can, getting a milkshake at the Snack Shop, maybe meeting a pretty girl (now that I had that champion […]

We’ll laugh, worship, and learn from Scripture. Personally, I can’t wait to find a lobster shack in Maine. There’s something about the charming ports, scenery and […]

    A speaker, band, theme videos, tube run, ice rink, brooms, helmets, pucks, cardboard, duct tape, snow (and lots of it), fire pits and chocolate are all necessary elements needed to run a Hume-style winter camp. The only thing missing is the campers. Thankfully, they came in the form of over 250 middle and high schoolers […]
