Happy Birthday Leslie!!!

Today my beautiful wife begins the final year of her twenties. Oh how time flies!
I think a short survey of some of Leslie's accomplishment from this past year are in order. Having just returned from a well spent year in South Korea, she landed a job at the Baptist State Convention of NC. Being back in her preferred profession Leslie has produced an enormous amount of design work for the BSCNC. Some fruits of her labor can be seen through a redesign of the Conventions website found here. A few other pieces of promotional art can be found here and here. Believe me when I say this is just a sample of all that she has cranked out over the last ten months.

Leslie has also begun taking classes at Southeastern Seminary which will count towards a Bible Certificate. She has been doing very well in these classes, learning the good material and graciously sitting through the other stuff. She joined the Summit Church in Durham, NC where every week God uses the choir and Pastor J.D. to bless and challenge her. She also joined a Summit small group and has begun making some very meaningful relationships.

Leslie bought a house this year! By Gods grace we are now well planted in Wake Forest and enjoying our new home. Using her designers eye our house is well decorated and comfortable to live in. I am a blessed man, which leads me to my final point. Year three of marriage has certainly been our best so far. The first year was an adjustment, the second was in a foreign country with numerous health issues, but year three has been especially pleasant. Leslie is an amazing wife and I am so fortunate to have her.

For those of you who pray for us we want to say a big THANK YOU! Please pray for Leslie today as she celebrates her birthday and I hope that you will continue to lift her up throughout the rest of this upcoming year.

I love you!!
