A Birthday Tribute

Today, 29 years ago, our middle child was born. Brigette, spelled B-r-i-g-e-t-t-e, is an incredible woman of God.

She is unbelievably blessed with a voice that most people would envy. She sings, plays piano, writes music, can act and does the most amazing things behind scenes. She has taught piano and voice to many children as well as a few adults. She has been involved with community plays and musicals, in front of audiences and back stage. She has won numerous awards in voice and piano, including the AGM national all around vocal award two years in a row.

Brigette is currently living in Charleston, SC, with her older sister and brother-in-law. They are letting her stay with them while she finishes her education in Theatre. A while ago, her father lost his job and we could no longer pay for her schooling. Instead of taking out loans at the time, she moved home and started to work. Well a year turned into five and then times got very hard for her. God has been faithful, but Brigette struggled for quite awhile.

Brigette stayed strong and got involved in helping to lead worship at her church. She also helped facilitate a small group for several years. She adores her disabled brother and is an advocate for people with special needs.

I just want to take this time to wish her the happiest of Happy Birthdays and tell her how proud we are of her. To let the world know she is a beautiful woman and cares for so many around her.

We love you Brig...
