This family is so very near and dear to my heart. We met them right around the time we started attending our current church, just as they were moving here from North Carolina. I saw Brittany by herself and actually thought she was a college student (yes, she looks young and acts young at heart!) and introduced myself to welcome her. Little did I know that she was married to our new families pastor, with three children of their own.
Fast forward almost two years, and these five have become fast friends. Brittany has walked through so much with me - life, marriage, and motherhood - and I am truly thankful for her friendship. Edward has been a fixture both at church and in our lives, and we are grateful for him as a friend and current Bible study leader. Together, their family is fun, kind-hearted, and just a little bit crazy in the best possible way!
For the second year in a row, this time at the CNU campus, I got to photograph these beautiful people who I give thanks for all the time.
