This girl has a special place in my heart.

It all started when I had her as a student in my 1st grade class. It was my second year of teaching at Peoria Christian School. I loved my job! The daily hugs I would receive as the children entered the classroom, the curriculum that we were able to teach that centered around God, and so much more! I even had parents pray over me during parent teacher conferences. It was a place where the love of God was felt and more importantly dwelling in the hearts of these kids and the staff around me. I have been able to keep in touch with a lot of my students through Facebook through the years, and I have loved it! Ever since our move away from Peoria and that job, I had a few students make special efforts to stay in touch with me. Molly is one of them. I knew she was special when she entered my life way back in that 1st grade classroom, but as time has gone on, she has meant more to me than she will ever know!

Here is a look back of a few of our times together. Where has the time gone?

And now here are some of our favorites from her session. What an amazing lady she has become!

It was only appropriate to photograph her with her violin. She has quite the talent and has just recently become theĀ Concertmaster for Central Illinois Youth Symphony. We loved listening to her play!
