Caroline

James 4: 1-14

Resilient. Consistent. Thoughtful.

This lady right here is my girl. I literally met her on the bus on the way to Young Life camp and I couldn’t even remember her name for the entire first day! Little did I know that it was just the beginning of a (hopefully) lifelong friendship. She even said that I could read scripture in her wedding–and I’m planning on holding her to it! Caroline is so honest in this conversation and really brings it all to the table. I am so proud of her and so grateful for her vulnerability.

Fun Fact: I took Caroline to Young Life camp twice. She was in my cabin twice. And we had at least 6 one-on-one conversations during those two weeks. And in between the camp weeks, we had a bazillion conversations about life and Jesus and relationships. After our (what seemed like) millionth conversation, Caroline decided to start a real relationship with Jesus on the chairs outside of the dining hall at Sharptop Cove. It was epic! I love that she took her time. I love that she didn’t jump the gun just because she was in the right place at the right time. She waited until she knew what she was getting into and was very thoughtful about her decision. It was such a gift to get to walk through that season (and continue to walk through more) with her!
