Thanks so much for checking out the website! Your support and encouragement means so much and I can’t wait to see how our journeys collide.
Two weeks ago I proposed to my girlfriend, Laikyn, and it has been incredible to see how we have grown together in these past two years. Having met in tenth grade Spanish class, we quickly became friends only to have lost touch until I joined the marching band my senior year. As we grew closer as friends, we fell into sync with each other. I helped her as she struggled through physics homework and she wrote my poems for English class. We became band bus buddies and we started biking together. She became my girlfriend and the love of my life and now she is my bride-to-be.
As she went off to Penn State the fall after we graduated, I stayed in York to pursue the path God laid out before me, to be enrolled in the discipleship program through the ministry Christ Centered Family. Halfway into the fall semester, Laikyn was at Penn State studying engineering, and although she was doing what she believed her family and peers thought she should do, she was miserable. After many prayers and with a whole lot of faith, Laikyn dropped out of Penn State and enrolled in cosmetology school. With a passion for updos and makeup, soon Laikyn was asking me to set up a photoshoot with her friends so I could photograph her work for her portfolio. Like a good boyfriend, I obliged. When at the time I thought I was doing Laikyn a favor, in reality she was doing me a favor too.
So here we are, just two people using the gifts and passions God gave us to unearth beauty, to encourage, to love, to learn and to impact lives in the ways the Lord has called us.
