Olivia Kneip, your unique style and creative eye never cease to amaze me!! I don’t know of anyone else who would think to have a photo shoot in a coffee shop & bakery, but the Prickly Hippie could not have been more perfect!! Your beautiful girls + these outfits + the flowers in EJ’s braids + this location = a photographer’s DREAM!!
Olivia, your friendship has been an answer to lots of prayer! When I found myself in Mississippi and unable to return to my close-knit community in the Middle East I cried out to the Lord for community here… and the Lord sent you! What a blessing you are to me!!
As I have edited the images from the photo shoot with you girls, I feel the Lord’s delight over your family. Olivia, Proverbs 31:25-26 remind me of you: “Strength and honor are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness.” You have taught me so much about being a woman of God, wife and mother. Your girls reflect not only your physical beauty, but the light of Jesus shines brightly through each of you.
Eliza James, you are so full of LIFE!! God created you to be a FIRE STARTER!! You will not only see and experience the fire of revival, but the Lord wants to use you to CARRY His revival throughout the world!! Spread the fire, baby girl!!
Harper Elise, radiant beauty with eyes of peace. Holy Spirit had me look up your name, and Elise means “God is my oath.” Wow! Sweet girl, God has such amazing plans for you as you embark on this new season at Jackson Prep! I see you becoming a person of great influence among your classmates. The Lord is giving you a gift of wisdom and I see girls coming to you for advice. Some will be close friends, others will be girls you don’t even know… but they will be drawn to this gift God is giving you. Stay connected to the One who IS Wisdom and allow Him to speak through you! I also see Him giving you a deep love for each person He puts in front of you. Make time for these relationships to go deep. The deeper you venture into the heart of God, the deeper your friendships will go also, beautiful one.
Father God, I pray not only for these girls, but for the entire Kneip family. Thank you for how You are growing them, taking them deeper spiritually. I pray for special blessings over their family, little secret gifts that they will recognize and rejoice in finding, knowing they are from their Father who loves them!
