I don’t know where to begin. This family has functioned as one of the most tangible blessings God has given us when moving to Finland. On the second week after we moved here, we met Kev and Lydia and their (then) three children. Since then, we’ve journeyed through the past two and a half years together. We’ve watched them pour their hearts into the church plant we get to be a part of, we’ve gained wise counsel for our marriage, they’ve blessed our family with their prescense, prayers, thoughtfulness and wisdom. They make for great friends.
I’ve told Lydia this a few times, and I’m convinced of it. Often in this season of living here, this family has saved us. Their encouragement and continual persual of friendship as well as their leadership and gently encouraging us to volunteer and take ownership of parts of the beautiful church we’re in has been unreal. To say we love this family would be a gigantic understatement.
It was pure delight getting to spend the morning with them. Capturing the joy their family holds was so rewarding for me. Would you look at these children? I’ve already tried to convince them to go for number Five. The world needs as many Joneses as we can get. 🙂 Twelve years of marriage. It is a beautiful thing to behold.
Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity, dear friends, to photograph you. All that you are is wonderful and awe-inspiring.
