Before I became a Christian, I had just met Jennifer.  Immediately, I took a liking to her.  She is as friendly and joyful as she looks, a true testimony of Christ.  She was one of the first and most influential on my life when I was a new Christian – we had in depth talks over lunches, she was patient and a huge encouragement as my mind was renewed, and she always delivered God’s word to me in a way that I could understand, and yearn to grow.  Her sweet spirit is what drew me in, and seeing her genuine heart is why I confided in her as I tried to find my footing in my early stages of my new life.

It’s been years since I met her, and when I think of our genuine friendship, it reminds me that a friend like her are the ones that are hard to come by.  I think of all the times she was there for me when life got hard – like really, really hard.  Through it all, her presence alone comforted me and she always gave me the gift of her prayers.

I’m excited to document baby boy number three who will probably be given an equally awesome and strong name as his older brothers Owen and Eli.  Congratulations JM, you are like a real sister to me.  I feel so fortunate that the Lord placed you in my life at every moment I needed you.  I love you so much and you bless me with your friendship that makes God feel all that more present in my life.  I admire you more than you know, and you have shaped me so very much into who I am today.  I cannot wait to love on your next little one!
