It was such a joy to spend time with Deanne at her Mississippi State University Senior Session!! We had the best time walking around an empty campus (thanks to COVID) and reminiscing about each of our days there. It was so much fun to get to know this sweet girl and to see how much has changed at MSU since I was a student.
Deanne was part of the Chi Omega group session a few weeks ago, but also wanted a session of her own to get pictures of her in her cheer uniform. She also wanted to include special places on campus. I love the Chi Omega group session, but getting some one-on-one time with Deanne was food for my soul!
Deanne I have prayed for you as I edited your session, and I keep hearing Jeremiah 29:11 for you. “I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “Plans to prosper you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.”
I know these are crazy times we are living in right now, but God’s plans for you are GOOD! Keep your eyes on Him and He will you down the right path!
Taeler Williams may call herself “short and sarcastic”, but I call her full of fun, laughter and JOY of the Lord! I have had the pleasure of getting to know Taeler and her family through our church Crossroads of Life in Byram, MS. And we became even closer to Taeler as she spent many hours in the car with us during our spring break mission trip to YWAM Nashville! Seriously, with so many little kids needing potty breaks on our family mission trip, it took no less than 10 hours to complete our 6 hour drive haha! To say it was a lesson in patience is an understatement, and this spirited young lady created a Certificate of Completion in the Course of Patience for my husband who kept declaring that he was going to learn patience this time so God would move on to the next lesson haha! In all seriousness, this girl has reminded me that loud laughter really is the best medicine!
Taeler, Papa God has such amazing plans for you! He has gifted you with a voice to proclaim His Gospel message to all He puts in your path! He will use your gift of laughter to reach many for His Kingdom! He has given you this gift to share, and you share it well!
As you step into this new season, I pray specifically for abundant grace. Grace for each place as He moves you. Grace for the transition. Grace as you wait on Him. Grace as you allow Him to work in you and through you.
Taeler, you are a young woman full of God’s GRACE and POWER! You will perform great WONDERS and SIGNS among the people! I can feel His excitement over all He has planned for you!! Keep you eyes on Him. Walk with Him hand-in-hand. Experience His delight in you.
I had the best time with Sydney last Friday at the Town of Livingston for her Senior Portrait Session!
Sydney originally reached out to me back in January for her senior portrait sessions, and I am so thankful that we had such beautiful spring weather for her session on Friday! Sydney found me through her friend Hannah who is also a Meridith Lee Senior from earlier in the year!
Capturing Sydney with her beautiful blue eyes and radiant smile was such a joy and highlight to my week! I have enjoyed editing these images and thinking about our time together!
Sydney, I have prayed for you as I edit your images, and the verse that keeps coming to mind is Jeremiah 29:11 –
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
I pray that the Lord with give you abundant JOY and GRACE for this season of transition! I pray for PEACE that surpasses all understanding as you finish well your senior year and begin to step into a new season with more independence! Keep your eyes on Jesus, allow Him to guide your steps. He will lead you in triumphant processions!
Getting to photograph senior portraits for a fellow missionary?? YES PLEASE!! Hannah was referred to me by our mutual missionary friend and I am SO THANKFUL!!
Hannah is such an encouragement to be around! This girl is confident in her identity in Christ and imparts that to those she is around! She is full of the Joy of the Lord and radiates His love so well!! Can’t you just see Him shinning through here even in these images?
Hannah, as I have prayed for you the Lord has given me this verse for you…
She is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future.
1 Samuel 12:16
He has such good plans for you!! I see you taking your college campus by FIRE of REVIVAL! The fire in you is not meant to be kept in, let it out and you will start wild fires of revival that can not be contained! When the enemy comes to attack, just laugh in his face because the JOY of the LORD is your STRENGTH!!
Abigail: father rejoiced or father’s joy. Gives joy. The intelligent, beautiful Abigail was King David’s third wife, described as “good in discretion and beautiful in form.”
Grace: the free and unmerited favor of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings.
Abby Wilkerson, the name your parents gave you was a prophetic word of the beautiful, intelligent, blessing of a young lady you are today!
I first met Abby in the spring of 2011. I was working with her dad Kelly at Morgan White Group and our department decided to have a BBQ to meet everyone’s families. I was also living at We Will Go Ministries where she served with her mom Amy, sister Katie, and their homeschool co-op group CHEC. Shortly after I moved overseas, her family sold their home and moved on base to serve full time with We Will Go. Over the years I have had the honor of watching Abby grown into a beautiful, talented young woman with a BIG heart for Jesus and love for His people.
Abby not only smart, but a hard worker! While still in high school, she has been dual enrolled at Holmes Community College. She will continue her education at the same community college this fall, taking full advantage of scholarships offered. She then plans to transfer to Mississippi State University, her parent’s alma mater.
Abby and I had so much fun at her senior portrait session at the Town of Livingston! This girl is so fun to laugh with and I was so pleased to capture her joy and laughter in the images from her session! I love to pray over my clients as I edit their photos, and I can feel the Lord’s excitement over Abby’s future! Abigail Grace – keep your eyes on Jesus and hold His hand tightly as you take each step. Your Heavenly Father delights in you, beautiful girl! And He has amazing plans for you!!
