James 5: 7-12.
Trustworthy. Leader. Loyal.
Jillian (Bean) is one of my favorite people on the planet. She is a state-champion swimmer and will be swimming for the University of Georgia, but that’s not where her gifts end. She is a natural-born leader. She leads by example and is the definition of a servant-leader. Jillian loves people well and will always go the extra mile to care for those in need. Her entire family ranks up there with some of our favorite families and every time I’m around them I feel like I leave as a better person than when I came.
Fun Fact: Bean (and her sister) taught all of my kids how to swim–and they are now little fish! She and her sister would pick them up from school and take them to their house to do private swim lessons and wouldn’t even let me pay them–I had to shove cash in their bags or buy them gifts because they just wanted to do it because they love them! I couldn’t be more grateful for her and her influence on my own children’s lives!
