4. Bethany loves basketball and played for many years in junior high, high school, and college.

5. She is loyal.

6. She loves very deeply.

7. She is a tremendous help to me, especially if she knows I am stressed.

8. Bethany is majoring in social work and Bible, and hopes to be a counselor.

9. Her best friend is her sister.

10.Bethany wanted to beat up a little child once because they said something unkind about her brother, Davin.

11.She would much rather wear basketball clothes than get dressed up.

12.Bethany loves to stay up late.

13.Bethany has such a heart for Jesus and a heart for people. I am so proud of the young woman that she has become.

I just noticed your comment on my blog, and thought I'd come visit yours. Thanks for your thoughts! Martha has mentioned your family to me. I'll be glad to follow your blog.

And I noticed Bethany's major, and I have my degree in social work. How cool to get one in Bible too, the perfect combination in my opinion :).

God bless,

PS- It looked like a beautiful wedding!

Bethany is and has always been such a nice person. Abby has alot of the same qualities as Bethany. They remind me so much of each other. It's refreshing to have a child that is so easy going, isn't it?

Heather said...

You are so right. Abby has always reminded me so much of Bethany. Sometimes I feel badly because Bethany is so easy going and requires much less than the other kids. I try to be aware of that and enjoy her every chance I get. Abby even reminded me of Bethany in her looks. Maybe we are really related!

Bethany has always been beautiful. I love all your kids. Each one is special in his/her own way.

Heather said...

Thank you, Martha. I love all of your kids, too. Each one of our kids is so different and yet so amazing. I love your kids, too, Michelle!
