Oh how sweet it was to meet up with Jamie + Lia at Highland Village for a mini-session!
Jamie and I got to know each other when we shared a house together TWICE at We Will Go Ministries in Jackson, MS. In spring of 2011 Jamie moved to We Will Go to serve as a missionary and moved into the Peace House with me for a few months before I went to Harvest School of Missions in Mozambique, Africa. I remember loving our neighbors together on the southern-style front porch of our house, spending so much time sitting in the rocking chairs and sharing the love of Jesus with the homeless and hungry who would knock on our door at all hours of the day and night.
A year later we had the privilege of living together again in Fire House just a few blocks over. Jamie was my last housemate in America before moving overseas to the Mediterranean Region! Looking back I can see how the Lord used us as iron that sharpens iron to grow and refine us both for what He knew was in our futures.
While living at We Will Go, Jamie bought a house to restore just a few blocks away. She has continued to live out the Great Commandment of loving her neighbor as herself from her Mid-Town home where she lives with her beautiful baby girl Ophelia. If you have something to give, Jamie knows who is in need. Jesus has used her gift of networking to advance His kingdom by caring for the modern day widows and orphans in her neighborhood.
Thank you Jamie for all you do! Thank you for loving people well with the love of Christ! And thank you for the honor of capturing these images of you and your sweet Lia.
