The girl in the picture.

So some of yall may be wondering who the girl from the picture below is. Well this blog post is dedicated to getting to know the one and only REAGAN WILLIAMS! Reagan and I met last year at super summer. When you get to know us you may think that we have been friends for ages but that would be a false statement. The Lord brought me this wonderful girl only a year ago, dressed as a pirate and sporting pigtails. Some of yall may be asking yourselves "what the heck am I reading"? Well this my friends is what I have seen in and love about this dear friend of mine.

Reagan is a few years younger than me (she says she remembers me from high school when she was a freshman and I was a senior and president of FCA) and she goes to Dallas Baptist University. She LA-HUVES (that is loves for all of you who can't sound out) Jesus with all her heart, mind and soul. She challenges me to get to know my Beloved better and encourages constant conversation and a relationship with Him. The picture from below is a picture of us with the bracelets she got in Tokyo on her recent mission trip. She bought me one that was pink--my fave color- and that says Beloved in Japanese--Beloved is my fave name for the Lord!

She has many different qualities that I admire and these are just a few of them: she is filled with joy, gentleness, she is kind, loves children, desires to know more and more about the Lord, is beautiful inside and out, is a woman who fears the Lord (Pro. 31:30), has a heart for missions and God's children, is burdened by the eternal life of unbelievers and simply loves because we are commanded to.

"Reagan you are such an amazing blessing to my life. Your love for the Lord overflows and pours out on everyone that is around you. Your obedience to our Daddy is so great to see and I cannot wait to see the amazing things He does with your life. He is so enthralled with your beauty and your life is like a sweet incense rising up to Him. You are filled with His goodness and His will is being worked out through you. Continue to seek Him. Continue to praise Him. Continue to love and obey Him. Cause He is going to rock your world with His glory and I hope that I am close enough to have some of that splatter off on me! I love you friend and I leave you with this truth that describes us perfectly!!

"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

It is right for me to feel this way about you, since I have you in my heart; for whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me. God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God." -Philippians 1:3-9


  1. So all you need to know is that this made me cry. I'm sitting at Rock the Desert crying like a retard. I'm am so thankful that the Father made us roommates last year! I'm so blessed by you and encouraged by you and I don't even know how I functioned without your beautiful heart and joyful spirit! I love you so much sweet friend and if I wasn't typing this on my phone it would be way better!

  2. I was going to read this again because I loved it so much and it was so encouraging, but then I got to the part that said, "The Lord brought me this wonderful girl only a year ago, dressed as a pirate and sporting pigtails", and I could NOT stop laughing. Oh dear, oh dear--how I love you precious friend of mine!

  3. haha Well feel free to copy and paste it somewhere... it is yours my dear friend.

  4. This rattles my brain that y'all weren't bffffffffs for the past 10 years. Because y'all sure did act like it during the good ole pirate days. And thank you for mentioning P31, i would have pointed it out if you would have forgotten. ..Tears..
