Name: Jenna Oswald
Position: Bode, Truman & Spring Garden Wyld Life Leader/Lafayette Young Life Leader
What would be the title of your autobiography?
It Will Get Better and So Will You.
If there's anything I've learned in my 19 years it's that people change people, and life is hard. That's why we have Jesus, and the gift he gives us of loving Him, loving each other, and loving ourselves-so that we can live in this crazy world.
What is one goal you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?
To move out of Missouri, see the world in a different way, away from the MidWest.
What has been your favorite part about being a Young Life leader?
Getting to see God move so apparently! Growing up I always heard people's stories of how they saw God in their lives, moving and working. I never really saw him clearly until I started doing Young Life. I saw him work in me, and work through me, and work in others. It's incredible-makes me feel like I have a purpose and that's why I'll never stop doing Young Life.
If you could eat any food right now what would it be?
Cinnamon toast or a big bowl of Cocoa Pebbles.
River, Lake, or Ocean?
Is that even a question? Ocean! My heart is always at the beach, but there's little pieces of it at El Rancho Rio, (my family's cabin on the southern Missouri river), and Detroit Lakes in MN (Castaway).
What accomplishments are you most proud of?
Making it out of high school alive and having a good relationship with my family. I'm proud that even in the lowest valleys of high school, I never stopped believing in Jesus, and the good things of this world, and I hope I never do. I can blame my family and the relationships I've built with them for that.
