By Elizabeth Goldsmith

“We were chosen for one thing in Marus. We must be chosen for something else here.” -Anna

On the Mountaintop

On the Mountaintop

Have you ever had an experience where you felt really close to God? Maybe at church or at summer camp? Those are called “mountaintop experiences,” probably because the top of a mountain seems like it’s closer to God. But they are called mountaintops for a good reason. You can’t stay on them forever! When you get back home from church or summer camp, sometimes it’s hard to hold on to that closeness you felt. Everything goes back to normal and it’s easy to wonder why you felt the closeness in the first place.

Mountaintop experiences are wonderful and they can be great times of growth in our relationship with God. But it’s important to remember that we won’t always feel that excitement that comes along with being on the mountaintop. Our feelings can change, but God doesn’t. We need to learn how to stay strong in our faith even when everything’s normal and the feelings of closeness aren’t necessarily there.

Anna and Kyle’s time in Marus was sort of like a mountaintop experience. The Unseen One gave Anna dreams and visions, and used Kyle to protect Darien. Even though their experiences were a little scary at times, The Unseen One became very real to them. When things changed, however, and the Unseen One stopped using them in those ways, Kyle began to doubt and even turned away from the Unseen One. Anna, however, stayed on the right track: she still trusted and followed Him even if she didn’t always feel His presence.

It’s easier to have faith when the feelings are there, and when God reveals Himself to you in big ways. Holding on to that faith when you’re back in your day-to-day life, however, is harder to do. Because we’re human, we won’t always feel like reading our Bibles or praying or going to church. It’s important, however, to do those things, to have a faith that’s strong in times of excitement and quiet. God calls us to be obedient in the exciting times and in the boring ones.

Have you ever had an experience where you felt really close to God? What did you do when things went back to normal? Tell us about it in the comments section below.

    Rock-O-Ages, it may not matter, but somebody might care. The actor who plays Kyle is Shane Baumel. He was also the voice of Everett, Eugene’s long-lost brother.

  • celtin on November 13th, 2009 - 10:30pm

  • Liv on November 14th, 2009 - 9:34am


    What they’re talking about here is called subjectivism – basing your relationship with God on your feelings and emotions. You really have to watch out for it and beware you don’t get caught up in it. Oh and Darien’s Rise was pretty cool! Sad about the new Whit though. Anyways, thanks Odyssey! :)

  • Jeff on November 14th, 2009 - 10:01am


    Part 9 isn’t working for me–the link plays Grand Opening II.

  • Katy on November 14th, 2009 - 12:28pm

  • Jeff on November 14th, 2009 - 12:45pm

I can’t get enough of it. i could lay on my bed all day and listen to odyssey after odyssey and never get tired! Darien’s Rise was a great audio! Make more AIO! Never, ever, ever, EVER! stop!

  • amy on November 14th, 2009 - 8:00pm


    Awesome! I loved Darien’s Rise! I like the lessons that came with it. Who did write the manuscript that Whit read, anyway?

  • ASHLEY on November 14th, 2009 - 8:36pm


    I have listened to Adventures in Odyssey since I was a little kid, and I still love it. “Darien’s Rise” was excellent, and I can’t wait to here more of the “Passages” series. Great job, AIO!

  • jo on November 14th, 2009 - 9:02pm


    i liked it you did a good job in dramtising it you need to make the rest of them

  • lucy on November 15th, 2009 - 9:03am

  • Brian on November 15th, 2009 - 11:21am

  • kelsey on November 15th, 2009 - 2:37pm


    I thought that Rachael Fox also played Kelly.

  • Anonymous on November 15th, 2009 - 3:28pm


    Wow. . . good show. It’s sad that this string of new Odysseys is finished, but now we can look forward to the new Album! Exciting!

  • Jd on November 16th, 2009 - 8:52am

    Dariens Rise was awesome! Are you going to make an audio drama out of the next Passages book “Arin’s Judgement”?
    I love Adventures in Odyssey and can’t wait till new stuff comes out!

  • Connie on November 17th, 2009 - 4:09pm


    Haha Chuck, I never knew that! I always thought it was
    “I fool pals” :-)

  • Daniel on November 17th, 2009 - 4:54pm


    Can the guy who made these make more.
    If not:(.

  • Daniel on November 17th, 2009 - 4:58pm


    On I SLAP FLOOR I SLAP FLOOR means……….
    april fools

  • Elsa on November 17th, 2009 - 10:39pm


    Darien’s Rise was great!
    It’s going to take me a while to get used to the new Whit…
    Who wrote the manuscript, anyway? (Anna, maybe? It was her house, right?)
    Will there be AIO episode(s) about how Jack and Whit find the author of the manuscript? That could be an exciting episode!

    Thanks Odyssey Team! This series was great.
    ~ Elsa

  • Original joe on November 24th, 2009 - 3:27pm


    Hey Connie, Paul Herlinger, the actor who played Whit, isn’t dead. He retired. The Whit actor who you are thinking of is Hal Smith, which Paul Herlinger replaced. Then Andre Stolkja recently replace Paul Herlinger.

  • Anonymous on November 25th, 2009 - 2:08pm



    there has been 3 Whits on the show. The 1st one is Hal Smith he died a long time ago. The 2nd one is Paul Herlinger. He didnt die but retired. The #rd one is the new one and his name is Andre Stojka

  • hayley on November 26th, 2009 - 9:16am


    Yes, I love Dariens Rise!COOL WITH A CAPITAL C!
    Hannah and Connie,

  • Dr. Dene on March 30th, 2015 - 9:25am


    Hello Darth and Hi:)!
    It makes me feel so good to know you two (and FlyingRider) so well. We’re so much closer than the people on the new podcasts, who just chat about meaningless subjects. (At least it feels that way to me.) I love you guys! :D

    *okay, enough with the mushy stuff*



  • hi:) on March 30th, 2015 - 12:40pm


    Dr Dene I like posting on some podcasts but I have been really missing the old one :( where we could just chat :)
    Flying =rider said she would be back April 6! one more week :)

  • Dr. Dene on March 30th, 2015 - 2:30pm


    @ Hi:)
    I know! There’s just something missing on the other podcasts. At least to us… ;) Well, I have school to do in the near future, but I’m planning on writing a big ol’ post soon. Gotta get you guys updated on my life! How’ve you been, anyway?

  • darth vader on March 30th, 2015 - 5:24pm


    @Dr. Grammar – I don’t know how I feel about that u choosing this podcast bcuz of Elizabeth. lol. So ya. Love you guys! I might do a long post soon. XD

  • Darth Vader on March 31st, 2015 - 8:52am


    @Dr. Grammar – Do u wanna do a long post first?

  • Dr. Dene on March 31st, 2015 - 9:49am


    @ Darth
    I don’t care. Right now I have school to do, and a piano lesson to go to.

  • Dr. Dene on March 31st, 2015 - 3:39pm


    @ Darth
    Guess what?! I started playing Someone Like You by Adele on the piano yesterday, and I’ve got it pretty good with singing! YES! However, my older sister is getting very tired of the song. Payback for when she learned Let It Go. :roll:

  • hi:) on March 31st, 2015 - 6:52pm


    @DR Dene cool! some like you! I love that song! hahaha payback! sounds like me when my sisters learned a song on flute and guitar…..

  • Darth Vader on April 1st, 2015 - 8:25am


    @Dr. Graham Crackers – Hey! Today we are getting rid of some winter clothes and getting some spring/summer clothes! Sadly most of my favorite sweaters are gone! I had to basically beg my mom to keep my black colored pants and all of my black shirts. I hate bright colored clothes! All black is fine by me. XD

  • Darth Vader on April 1st, 2015 - 8:33am


    @Dr. Grammar – What lesson are you on in math? I am on lesson 27. Co-op ended last Thursday! On Friday our co-op put together a concert. It was pretty fun. One of the songs we sang was “Today is the day”. We had to dress up tho. :( I even broke out the pocket square! Lizzy’s hair was sooo beautiful. XD She looked even nicer than usual. I didn’t talk to her much tho. I am trying to convince my mom to have their whole family come over to our house. If they do I will have a ton of fun!

    -Darth V

  • Darth Vader on April 1st, 2015 - 8:47am


    @EVERYONE – Did u guys tell storm shadow about this podcast? How is everyone doing in their life?

  • hi:) on April 2nd, 2015 - 2:39pm


    Darth vader no I didn’t tell him gotta find if he is on the main page or on at all

  • Darth Vader on April 3rd, 2015 - 8:53am



  • hi:) on April 4th, 2015 - 9:14pm


    I don’t know if you guys remember but a while back we had some new people going to our church… and they are still there but like us didn’t go for about 5-6 weeks due to snow/ice storms. the kids are at least saying hello and our friends and us are trying really hard to talk to them but they don’t want to talk to any of us (my sibs and our friends are the only girls)
    @Darthvader stinks your co-op ended. that would be cool if her family could come over. we are trying to get my mom to invite some of our friends over since camping season is almost here and we won’t really see them in the summer. yeah we had to get some spring clothes a few weeks ago.

    my sis made a circle skirt for all of us and its soo cool! we are all wearing them tommorow! they are fun to spin with!

  • Julianna on April 6th, 2015 - 7:51pm


    All, May I join this chat club? If not, I understand.

  • stormshadow on April 7th, 2015 - 6:58am


    Sup? I’m here. :D

    Did you watch the NCAA basketball championship last night? Such a letdown. WI just can’t win championships. now theres only one team left to care abot. GO SPURS!!

  • Darth Vader on April 7th, 2015 - 8:00am


    @ Hi – Ya it would b awesome if they came over! A circle skirt. Hmmm. I think my younger sister has one of those. She loves to spin in it. I think she looks silly but whatever. XD The pain a older brother has to go through. :) How u doing? How old are you? I am 14. Tonight we are going rollerskating with some people from church and our youth group. So that should b fun! Unless if I brake a bone or something. :D

  • Darth Vader on April 7th, 2015 - 8:01am


    @Dr. Grammar – What books are you currently reading? I am reading the Hunger Games series! Such a good series!

  • Darth Vader on April 7th, 2015 - 8:39am


    @Storm Shadow – I am not a big fan of college sports but I was happy when I heard that Wisconsin lost! If I had to choose a college team I liked it would be North Carolina. My fav nba team is the Miami heat! We broke the record for the most injuries in one season! So annoying when every game some important or good player is out for injuries! I hope the spurs lose in the playoffs!!!!!!! Hahahahaha. How u doing?

  • stormshadow on April 7th, 2015 - 9:10am


    Yeahh. I’m not either. The ducks let me down in the NCAA football championship, and I was really hoping the Badgers could pull it off. *sighs* The Heat. Eh. After they lost Lebron they cant win a game, :D Yayay!! Heats doing somethin good for once. :) Wait wait. The heat have important and good players?? :shock: Whoaaaaaa. I thought they all stank. :lol:
    Than your hopes and dreams will never be fulfilled.
    They’ll be crushed.
    Like cement in a cement mixer. :D


  • stormshadow on April 7th, 2015 - 9:11am


    I’m doing pretty good, going on vaca here in a couple days.

  • hi:) on April 7th, 2015 - 10:08am


    @Darthv I’m doin good. I’m 15. hope you don’t break a bone. that would stink.

  • FlyingriDer on April 7th, 2015 - 10:25am


    Hey guys! I am back!!!! So happy! How’s life been?? It’s been ok for me I guess… Actually it’s been kinda rough. Our church split and I am on the opposite end of the divide as my good friends. So life has been kinda mixed up. I have learned to be very outgoing now because I talk to everyone! If you remember me talking about that 17 year old flirter guy awhile ago well I realized he isn’t that bad. I was really just a going off of what my friends said and not actually finding out who he is

  • Flyingrider on April 7th, 2015 - 10:36am


    Is annoying and awesome at the same time! Oh and those last posts were me!

  • Flyingrider on April 7th, 2015 - 3:52pm


    Blog mods please let my posts go through!!! If you need to change the wording ok but please let me go through!!!

  • hi:) on April 7th, 2015 - 8:14pm


    FYlingrider HI! glad to see you back!
    yeah our church is getting a little weired to so we are going to try a new one this week we went to years ago but they got a new pastor and changed for the better we heard and a friend of mine goes there.
    yeah its cool to find out who a person really is :)
    just so happy your back!

  • Darth Vader on April 8th, 2015 - 6:05am


    @ Storm Shadow – My hopes and dreams aren’t always crushed. I mean I am friends with Lizzy and that was a dream of mine. :) So ya. Cement in a cement mixer. Hmmm. I always wondered how those things work. XD Where is your older bro? You going to youth congress this year? IM NOT!!!! Ha!! XD My youth group is going tho.

  • Darth Vader on April 8th, 2015 - 6:09am


    @Fly Gal – Life has been…. tough?. Sorry to hear about your church. Even though I am the outsider in our youth group (I could be on the inside but I choose not to.) Well maybe I would be considered on the inside ever since this 15 year old guy started coming. He is my best friend at church and I am always talking to him. So maybe we are both outsiders??? Lol. U lik your ipod touch? I want one sooooooo bad!!!!!!!!!!

  • stormshadow on April 8th, 2015 - 7:38am


    Ah yes. :D You do get some good among all the crushing. :)
    Yep, um im pretty sure they spin the cement up to mix it so it doesnt set. or something. He doesn’t post anymore, idk why, maybe maybe not. We haven’t really talked about it… Why not? Yeahhh.

    btw Spurs whupped on OKC


  • Anonymous on April 8th, 2015 - 9:37am


    Hi:) oh I am sorry your church has been like that. It has been rough. But God is still God and he is still in control!!i hope church goes well for you on Sunday! Our church stuff is finally clearing up a bit and now things are happening and our youth leader is spirit filled ( sadly she is only a sub) but she is awesome!!

  • Flyingrider on April 8th, 2015 - 9:42am


    Darth yeah this past couple of months have been hard. But things are clearing up and it is getting on the right track. Our church used to be an old store so now we are FINALLY renovating after like 17 yrs!! Exciting!!!!!! I feel like an outsider on or youth group because all the kids going right now are non-church kids. Gonna have to talk someone into coming with me… They call me the “quiet” one because I don’t blurt out stuff and interrupt while others are talking and so yeah they are cray

  • Anonymous on April 8th, 2015 - 9:43am


    Cray.., I love my iPod! I am getting my case in the mail hopefully today.. It is like a chevron blue and green case with black edges. I love it but it’s not something guys would really like… Lol

  • Julianna on April 8th, 2015 - 10:33am


    Anoymous, I would like that. I use a little Ipod. What kind of music or stories do you have on it? I try to keep mine clean.

  • Dr. Dene on April 8th, 2015 - 11:17am


    @ FlyingRider (I’m assuming it’s you that posted the Anonymous comment)
    That phone case sounds AWESOME! And beautiful. AND AWESOME! If I had an iPod touch, I would totally get a crazy case. With chevron, or a cool pattern or something like that.

    Hey guys-
    Could you all be praying for my sister and I today, tomorrow, and Saturday? We’re involved in a speech tournament and would appreciate the prayers. Please pray for peace and clarity of mind. Thanks SO much!

  • Flyingrider on April 9th, 2015 - 10:45am


    JULIANA I havent downloaded stories on my ipod yet. I do have a ton of music on it so i dont have a ton of space anymore. I am hoping maybe i ca learn drums to the music??!!

    DR DENE Yeah i cant believe i finally got it but i have it and it is great! I am getting my case today and really hope it fits right! Yeah the same company makes a ton of cases that you can interchange with eachother so i may be getting another to mix and match with it! Also will be praying!

  • Julianna on April 13th, 2015 - 3:51pm

    @Blog Mods – So like do you not want us to post on here? Is that why u don’t let our comments go through? Just wondering. lol

  • darth vader on April 17th, 2015 - 7:19am


    So how is everyone doing? Today I am going to sky zone with my homeschool group. I hope lizzy is gonna b there. :D

  • Flyingrider on April 17th, 2015 - 8:53am


    You are finishing in 2 weeks? Wow that’s awesome! I am gonna be finished at least by the end of May with everything. I will be done at the beginning of May wih math ( yay) and then science will be a bit longer

  • Flyingriser on April 17th, 2015 - 10:30am


    Darth I really think you have an obsession….. Lol do like your parents know? Hahah lol I know I don’t tell my parents always how I feel about people because I know they would tease me to death! And then I wouldn’t be allowed to have a normal conversation without them being suspicious. It’s so nice out today!!!! It’s like 60 degrees out and it is awes!!!

  • darth vader on April 17th, 2015 - 3:09pm


    @Fly Gal – Obsession??? Naaaa. I hide it very well. Like when I told my friends and they know me the most and they saw me talk to lizzie they said that it hadn’t even entered their minds that I liked her. XD So no my parents don’t know. They try to figure out who I like but I hide it and don’t tell them. Oh and no lizzy wasn’t there. XD But ya. 60 degrees is WAY too hot outside!!!!!

    -Darth Vader

  • hi:) on April 17th, 2015 - 5:25pm


    Darth lucky! Sky zone! thats so much fun! yeah if I liked someone and my sis found out it would be horrible. although she is the one who likes some one so thats fine with me.

    Fly gal 60 degrees! cool! at my house it was 72 out and it was humid so that = sweating like crazy and mosquitoes.
    cool that you got your ipod. :) they seem really cool :)

  • FlYingrider on April 17th, 2015 - 5:45pm


    Lol I was joking. Sometimes my mom checks up on my podcasts ( hi mommy) haha yeah my moms the same way but right now I don’t see like any guys at homeschool group ( 2 who are younger than me and one who is older who drives me absolutely positively insane) so I don’t really have any options and then a couple of guys from church…. :( I hope we get more people into the church in general. I always wanted to go to a mega cchurch…. Lol 60 degrees isn’t hot but his time of year it is very warm!

  • Julianna on April 20th, 2015 - 7:19pm


    Does anybody want to be my posting friend? I am stuck. What should I do. Wait, I wasn’t invited here, I just clicked a link to this page to talk with all of you. I am bored. *sighs*

  • hi:) on April 21st, 2015 - 8:18am


    sorry guys we have a yard sale this weekend so we are really busy and I hope I can come on this week :)

  • darth vader on April 21st, 2015 - 11:12am


    @Fly Gal – Lol. But ya. When ever I talk to girls at church camp or youth convention’s it is pretty funny. I am actually kinda happy I don’t hav a phone. Whenever I start talking to a girl I always tell them that I don’t have a phone and im not on social media. It just tells them im not really wanting a girlfriend just a person I can talk to and b friends with if u know what I mean. It is funny tho to see their disappointment when I tell them I don’t have a phone. XD

    -Darth Vader Is Still Alive

  • Flyingrider on April 21st, 2015 - 2:40pm


    JULIANNA Well i dont really do posting buddies anymore because i was not like paying attention all the time but if you wnat to be friends thats cool! So hows life? Anything exciting going on this week? Whats the weather like?

    DARTH VADAR haha lol i know a guy who would dive at any chance like that. I am sometimes wonder if like a go to a huge youth convention thingy that maybe ‘the one’ will be there but then i get there and i am like a big chicken. lol except this one time we were at a music festival and i met someone and we were in line so we were talking and my sister came up ( she was doing it on purpose im sure) and making herself look like a goofball and making sure he knew i was her sister. So anyways… My mother and father dont like social media really so i dont really have anything big like that but oh well…

  • darth vader on April 22nd, 2015 - 5:48am


    @Fly gal – Dive at a chance to do what? To talk to girls at church camps and stuff? Or to disappoint girls when I say I don’t have a phone or social media. it sounds like your sister and me would get along well. XD She sounds like a pretty funny person. ;)

  • Julianna on April 22nd, 2015 - 3:29pm


    Flyingrider, Okay, we can be posting buddies. I am 13. The only thing exciting this week is on Saturday. I get to listen to my favorite radio program of all time, Kids and Company! Have you heard of it? The weather is warm in California. We need rain, though.

  • hi:) on April 22nd, 2015 - 8:37pm


    wow… :shock: I have meet other people who don’t do social media… I”M NOT ALONE IN THE WORLD! ya with ya Darth don’t have a phone. :)
    and I gotta go because my sis has got to get up at like 5 or 6 tomorrow needs to turn this off.

  • Flyingriser on April 23rd, 2015 - 11:47am


    Darth he would dive at the thought of girls talking to him. Lol your funny. Hahah yeah I wonder about you now that you say that. I mean yeah. I really don’t think she quite knew what she was doing ( don’t worry I told her after) but I was quite annoyed. I mean like how would you like a younger sibling of yours to embarress you around Lizzy? Think about that. Lol haha but oh well. I probably won’t see him ever again…

  • hi:) on April 23rd, 2015 - 12:16pm


    Ok I have youth group tonight so I won’t be on but have any of your sibs sing a popular song in Spanish NONSTOP! its driving me crazy!!!!

  • Flyingrider on April 23rd, 2015 - 3:49pm


    Julianna oh sounds fun! Well I am babysitting on Friday night and we also have homeschool group which is fun. It’s our last chance to practice for our fine arts play and I’m nervous…:(

    Hi:) haha I thought about it and it would be cool if there was a homeschool social media right? Lol it would be fun I think! Hahah I have never had my sisters sing a Spanish song but English songs can be just as annoying

  • darth vader on April 24th, 2015 - 8:29am


    @Fly gal – Hmmmm. If one of my younger siblings was acting like that near lizzie I would b pretty mad. But it would still be funny. XD ;) We have youth fellowship tonight! Should b a fun time. I hope… As long as Gollum isn’t lurking in the shadows it should b a fun time!

  • Julianna on April 24th, 2015 - 3:36pm


    Flyingrider, Yeah. I get that way. Good luck!

  • hi:) on April 24th, 2015 - 8:40pm


    Flygal a homeschool socail media would be cool :)
    she was singing a song don’t remember what it was called that she had heard on a radio at the store. all I know its some kind of modern pop song. noo idea :)

  • darth vader on April 27th, 2015 - 7:44am

    “Tell ‘em that it’s my birthday when I party like that!”
