Crazy to think how we've really grown up together and how much we've changed in the last few years. I love you jessi and im so proud of you! I can't wait for you to be back here with me and there hopefully never be a day you have to leave me again lol. I love you lots and lots jessi jo. 😉😍💕 #baileyandjessi#allgrownup#yearslater#istilllookthatyoung
I'm so proud of this young lady right here Nyla Simone. This young lady was an instrumental part and core member of our youth group. From 2010 to 13ish.
Not only did she invite others, she help to do serve in the community with us, thus us being recognized by the county as the volunteer community group of the year.
So good to see her and know that she has graduated college working full time in New York City for the one and only Angie Martinez (hip hop heads know who she is lol)
Above all that, it's good to know that she is engaging culture with the Spirit of God and is seeking him to be glorified in every medium that she's a part of.
I forgot to add that the youth group was also inducted into the Anne Arundel county hall of fame!!!
So what would you say? This right here is just one of the advices I’d like to give to my younger self ...
“Dear 14-16yo Sam,
there are so many exciting things awaiting for you. Do not be lured to do things that you’ll regret later. You’re a very smart young lady and many are watching you. Think twice before taking any action .. and if you still decide to take that road go back 2 spaces and think again. Also don’t forget to tell your parents how much you appreciate them because a day will come when regret of not doing so will hit you hard!”
