One of my very best friends is getting married, and I really could not be more excited about it. I met Stephanie my sophomore year in college at UNC, and she was (and still is) truly a Godsend. For those of you who know me well, you know that the start of my college career was pretty rough. I didn't have many friends, I struggled a lot with my self-confidence and my faith, and I felt depressed at times. Though I met Stephanie my sophomore year, it wasn't until my junior year that I found myself hanging out at her house with her and her roommates one night after Athletes in Action. I feel like a lot of people in college make their best friends their freshman year, but this was simply not my story. I'm not sure that Stephanie knew it at the time, but after I first met her I was resolved to make her my friend. I kept going back to Athletes in Action, and I kept going back to her house (ha), and my master plan prevailed. Stephanie quickly become a friend I both treasure and admire. She is an incredible listener, a faithful confidant, and someone who always pushes me to truth. She pursues the Lord with all that she is, and she always encourages me to do this same. There is truly no better quality in a friend. In addition, she is always up for an adventure. Some of my favorite moments with Stephanie have been on the road trips we've taken together. Unfortunately, I don't know if she can say the same, since I tend to get pretty cranky when we're traveling and we can't find a Chipotle. Nevertheless, I am so excited for her and her fiancé, Jordan. I cannot wait for their adventure to begin at their wedding this summer, and I am honored to be able to stand by their side as they begin to write their story together. I could not have picked a better husband for Stephanie than Jordan. However, I do have a few requirements for you Jordan: You must make sure to never run out of peanut butter; you must promise to make Stephanie laugh and cherish her laughter; and you must vow to laugh at my jokes as much as she does (now I will have two people laughing instead of just myself). I love you guys dearly...thank you for letting me design your save the dates!
