Singing Praises Day 10

You may have noticed this through previous blogs or if you know me by conversations, but I love missions. Local and International. And there's a simple answer to why I love missions so much...I love PEOPLE! Each person is unique and has something to offer and it's my goal to find out what makes each person I connect with so special. Everyone has gold within them....everyone is made in HIS image. So by the simple act of getting to know others, a little more of Jesus is revealed to us. Glorious! Well, I met this person while I was leaving Haiti. I most definitely wrote about that trip and you can read about it starting here.

I trust that each of you had an incredible Christmas! I must say I have been enjoying this Christmas - even though it is much different than usual. I have been staying at my brother's house since Sunday while he and his family is celebrating this amazing holiday in Arkansas (the holiday is amazing...not so much the state).

Bryan and Erika White

Up to this point, I haven't done any couple and these two could each have their own day, but I want to honor them as both individuals and as a couple. I met Bryan and Erika in 2005 through mutual friends (the wonderful Penrose family!). They were desperately looking for a sitter for their two boys, Justin and Jackson. At that time Justin had just turn 2 years old and Jackson was 3 months old. I can't believe it's been 7 years since the first time I walked through their door. 

Bryan is a talented singer, musician, songwriter. He has hit singles, platinum records, gold records...and the list goes on...you can read his full bio here. He's got the talent. When I met him, I couldn't tell you if I had ever heard his music. I didn't listen to country music growing up (okay, I still don't, but I do respect the talen…
