This girl had lots of reasons to celebrate. Fall break from her masters program was going to be spent at the beach with her friends and sisters. And the weather forecast was perfect.
This was the scene when I arrived – the bathing suit clad bride dancing on the porch to music streaming from her tablet. Her enthusiasm was contagious. The bachelorette weekend was full of good food and fruity drinks, silly games and silky gifts. Thanks to everyone who helped to make it so special!
Florida beach conditions in October are idyllic. The air is warm, the sand is cool, and the humidity is low.
We love you Leah!

Founded in 1989, the Barnabas Center is a Christ-centered counseling and training ministry in Charlotte. This year, the Barnabas Center celebrates 25 years of impacting the lives of the people in our city. This side of heaven, life is hard. Each of us encounters disappointment and rejection, and our lives are full of struggles and questions. The brokenness of this life can easily move us towards despair. The team at Barnabas believes that our brokenness can point us to Jesus and our need for Him.
This night was a celebration of the impact the Barnabas Center has had in its first 25 years. It was a celebration of the relationships that have been restored, the addictions that have been defeated, the hearts that have been healed, and the truth that none of it would have been possible without Christ.
