All Grown Up

This weekend we attended a wedding of one of my youth from Calvary Baptist. It was the 2nd wedding I've been to recently where one of "my kids" got hitched. I have to admit that it's difficult to see "my kids" grow up. It seems like just yesterday that I was a recent college-grad working at CBC and loving on these kids as middle and high schoolers. I didn't realize it at the time, but that group of CBC kids I was privileged enough to share life with was an extremely unique group. The lives of those kids and their families radiated love and acceptance. While in the youth ministry, I tried to be an example and teach the youth about Christ. Only later did I realize that they had taught me much more. Though we all will grow up and follow different paths, I'm so thankful that God allowed me to love and be loved by that special group of Calvary families.

  1. Hailey, we are so fortunate to count you as a friend, role model, mentor for our kids. The Nobles love you! Walking down memory lane, I remember when that group of 2004 Berry grads were freshmen and trying to find God's path for themselves. I'm so glad God lead so many to share in the life of CBC & the Nobles
