To know him is to love him, and now I've had the pleasure of doing both for 2 years. I admire his kind, gentle spirit and his love for people. He has a smile that can light up a room and a passion and drive like no other. He pushes me to be better, he encourages me day in and day out, and he loves me without reserve. I didn't do anything to deserve him, I know that he is purely an example of the Lord's favor, and that gives me a reason to be thankful every single day. I love you most.

To the sweet girl in the middle. Michaelyn, you make me giggle at inappropriate times, you encourage my unhealthy eating habits and procrastination, you share my humor, and you are always up for a good New Girl or Friends reference. And, you make me strive to be a better person day in and day out. So thankful that you're my froomie. Stay ballin'.

To protect or care for someone lovingly; to hold someone dear.

Happy Birthday to one of the most kind-hearted, hilarious, and genuine people I know. I don't know what I did before I knew you because you've quickly become like a sister, and I know for sure I couldn't live without you now. I hope your day is filled with love from your students, lots of yummy food, and being in bed by 8:30💕. I love you Katie!

I love you more than the amount of food we ate today. {Which was, indeed, an excessive amount}
Thankful for another day surrounded by the people I love the most. My heart is full.

This picture is terrible, but I can't say the same for the house we are standing in front of. Thanks •205• for being my HOME for the last 19 years; for being a place of growth, memories, change, and lots of love. Its hard to leave since it's all I've ever known. Good thing the family that lived under the roof is what made that little yellow house so special, and I can always call them home.

Thanks for coming to Murray to play with a water jug on the IM fields and fall asleep during a scary movie.

You guys make life fun. You also make me laugh until I cry and eat cookie dough out of the tub with me. So thnx 4 that.

{H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y} to my Toble. I'm so thankful for you and our friendship. You have such a sweet heart for Jesus and other people. I love you and I hope that you have the most amazing day ever (even though we know it won't be because you can't be with me). I hope 20 is the best one yet.

Serving next to these three this summer was by far one of the greatest pleasures I've ever had. I'm thankful that the Lord brought us together and that He is the same God outside of those camp walls continuing to do amazing things in and through us. I can't wait to see the big things they all go on to do for Christ. I love you all more than Libby loves her dainty thumb ring, Mo loves her coconut oil, and Nae loves her toblerone.

This place will forever hold a precious place in my heart. The leadership and the staff I got to work alongside with were unmatched. The students and children I got to talk with and build relationships with were amazing. But, greater than anything else, the Lord revealed Himself in huge ways and did amazing things in not only my life but in the lives of others. This summer changed my life and the word thankful doesn't even begin to scratch the surface. It's the greatest joy in my life to be Jesus' servant and He receives all the glory. 📷 pc: @reneecophoto

The Lord did not bless me with the ability to achieve a stellar Chaco tan {mine's the one that's barely visible}, but He did bless me with a life filled with amazing memories and friendships and that's much better than a Chaco tan if you ask me.
