I love this family.

Over the summer I got a really great gift – the chance to visit one of my best friends in Michigan.  She hooked me up with a chance to photograph a wedding in Grand Rapids (thanks, Em!) and I took a few extra days to visit with her and her sweet family.  Because of how far away we live from one another, up until that point I had only met her oldest, Eli, when he was just a baby.  So getting a few days with all three of the kids was a treat!

Spending time with them was so encouraging for me as I’m about to embark on the adventure of motherhood (you can read more about that here!) I’m terrified…and excited. And to see Emily in action was just what my heart needed. She has such grace, such patience, and a lot of love for her children. She and David have beautiful hearts that long to love their family and others the way Jesus has loved them- and it shows.  I will treasure our talks over this time and the honesty from Em that being a mother is hard. And it’s beautiful and glorifying to God, too.  Thank you, Em, for encouraging me – and inspiring me, too.

Oh, how I wish we lived closer…
