Lovely Kiersten

God had been stirring my heart…..I knew that He was asking me to step into a young lady’s life, but wasn’t sure who. And then one day it hit me… it was Kiersten. I did not know Kiersten at the time, other than seeing her in passing at church once in a while. So, awkwardly  I sent her a FB message to see if she would like to meet to be mentored and to do a bible study with me. And to my surprise she answered with a “yes!”

The first time we met, I felt like I had known her for years. I have loved getting to know her, and seeing her grow in her relationship with the Lord and in wisdom. She is a delight to me and my family in so many ways. She will be leaving town in two weeks to attend Grand Canyon University…..and I will miss her so but am so thankful she will just be a hop, skip and jump away.

Kiersten, you are beautiful….. You are not only stunning on the eyes, but in spirit too. I am so amazed at the refinement God has been doing in your life and the wisdom He has given you. I will continue to pray that God continues to be your first love. You are precious precious precious! And as you heard it, Brookie said that you are her “best friend.” xoxo

Love these images!

Mr. & Mrs. Keith

There are some people you meet in life that truly leave a beautiful little sparkle everywhere they go. Presli and Shane are just those people…. You cant help but to love them. They love tenderly and openly, that leaves others feeling so special.

Presli and Shane were married last month with their closest family and friends (about 250 of them) at their side. Everything about their day felt intimate and special from the private vows they wrote to each other to the sweetest tears of joy they shared.

My Darling

“Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger, and it’s so quiet in the world tonight.

Your little eyelids flutter cause you’re dreaming, so I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light.

To you everything’s funny, you got nothing to regret

I’d give all I have, honey

If you could stay like that

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up

Don’t you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh darling, don’t you ever grow up.” Taylor Swift

Brookie, it feels like just yesterday that you filled that hospital room four years ago, with awe and wonder. I knew from the first minute I met you that I loved you….I have loved you….I will always love you.

Your tenderness towards others, blesses my heart. You so easily forgive. You love to dance innocently. You speak of Jesus and the angels often and question what heaven will be like. Your giggles are contagious. You give the best hugs. You love your family. You are beautiful, just how God made you. Oh, and you are so smart, I know the Lord has blessed you in this. I love you my darling…

Happy 4th Birthday to you!
