This girl. She's got a heart of pure gold. It's been a wild ride getting to know Emma through youth group. We met when she was a freshman, and it has been absolutely incredible to see how Jesus has transformed her life. If you ever meet her, ask her about what she's going to do with her life...you'll be amazed by the caring heart that God has given her. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do without her next year when she leaves me for college, but I am also excited to watch her flourish as she walks down this next pathway of life with Jesus. I love you, Emmalou! Thanks for our sweet friendship and our fun Leavenworth road trip.
