I first me Abigail in the lobby of 12Stone central campus on a Thursday night before Water’s Edge (the college ministry at church). I remember she was helping set up chairs and I thought “Who is this girl and where did she come from?” It was like she came out of nowhere. Well, I would soon find out.
It wasn’t long before Abigail and my wife Aubrey became close friends. This is interesting because they are very different from each other. But, despite their different personalities, even to this day I think that their friendship is one of the best I’ve ever seen. They are committed, honest with each other, have survived several fights, and they add value to each other with their uniqueness. I’m definitely ok with my wife having a friend like her!
Abigail is person who is a lot of fun to be around. Her history as an actress (a very talented one at that) makes her very comfortable around people and very entertaining. We also share similar family and school backgrounds so I can count on her being on the same page with me most of the time (definitely a rare thing, especially considering the odd pages I’m usually on).
It has been a privilege to see Abigail grow over the past couple of years. Always faithful, dependable, helpful and teachable, she’s not only a friend but a great addition to our team. She has helped me in so many ways, from directing vocalists to singing anything from soul to folk to REALLY old country songs. Since I met her she has not only grown in maturity, but has grown by leaps and bounds as a vocalist and as a leader. We got to watch her step into relationship with a great guy (now her husband) Kevin, and they are both people we love to do life with. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for their future!
So thanks Abigail (and Kevin) for all you do. Keep leaning into who God has made you to do and to be and you will continue to be a huge blessing to everyone around you.
