“Up North” is my favorite place. Yours?

Posted on 6/15/2018 by Greg Yoder

“Up North.” It really is a place. In Michigan, it’s anywhere NORTH of where you live—usually somewhere in a wooded area or a lake. For me, “Up North” was the family cottage that my grandparents built in 1955 along the shores of Lake Huron. It became a place I loved to visit. It created so many childhood memories. As an adult, it allowed my family to get to know my grandparents in ways they never would have otherwise. It also became a place I heard the Truth of God’s Word regularly. Now, my grandkids say “Up North” is their favorite place. It doesn’t have to be a family cottage. Maybe it’s a campground, a resort, or something else—a place to create memories and spiritual formation.

Suggested Reading: Hebrews 6:11
