I love this girl
My sweet Amanda. I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming. She is very much a "my glass is always half full" kind of person. In spite of the difficulties she has already had to endure at the tender age of 13 (or maybe because of them) she has an absolutely amazing faith and is always upbeat, loving, and thinking of others. At the moment she is collecting sponsors to do a 30 hour famine with our church youth group to help raise money for other children who have little or nothing to eat. She has really taken this cause to heart and is working hard to raise enough sponsors to feed several children for a year.
This photo was taken almost one year ago when she and the rest of the girls in our youth praise choir won 1st place in a local talent competion singing a christian rock song called "Big House" . It was totally out of her comfort zone to be center stage but she did a wonderful job and they had the place rocking out :-)
