Jon and Bekah :: Engaged

Bekah is one special girl. She's so genuine, so giving, and I've never seen her be rude to ANYONE. When she came back from working at camp telling me about this "amazing guy", I was all ears. Almost a year later, and they're engaged. Jon treats her like a queen, and I've never see my Bekah happier!

Girls Class 2014!

How is it almost May already? This year is zooming by, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about that! I'm not sure I've ever enjoyed the January-April months before as much as I have this year. There are many reasons for that, but a major one is contributed to my church and the amazing people that it's made up of. Especially my friends and the teenagers there. In the years before I've been involved teaching a class to the teen girls,  and then we took a break for a bit. To be honest, at the point I needed to be taught in a big way. It was a good time of learning, growing, and seeing needs. I was thrilled when several of my friends decided they wanted to start class back up again.

(Missing Rosie and Bekah who also taught a small groups.)

This semester has been amazing. The leaders all divided the weeks up and took turns teaching. I learned so much from my piers. I saw God answer specific prayers. I saw (once again!) that I cannot teach unless it is God doing the teaching.

(HUGE thanks to Mrs. Raaen who filled in for small group leaders who were gone!) 

(Becca and her girls.) 

(Tabitha's girls.)

(My girls!) 

*Now I'm realizing I didn't get a picture of Natalie and Rosie with their groups :( *

I truly love these girls. I'm thankful for each and every one of them and the time we spent together this semester. I can hardly wait to start back up in the fall!

Michael and Kristen :: Engaged

Spring time brings many engagement sessions, and I love it! Kristen and Michael's engagement session took place at a beautiful farm in South Carolina. I'm so excited for these two, and can't wait for their wedding!
