Now as a youth small group leader to a pretty awesome group of girls at my church I tend to get tunnel vision. Typically when people mention names of the guys in youth group I give back a blank stare. The boys just aren't on my radar. Sorry fellas. I'm working on it. So when I showed up for Kevin's Senior photos I knew very little about the guy. I did however know his name (because he is the brother of one of my youth girls and the son of a couple I have done ministry with from time to time.) But after spending a bit of time with the guy that included plenty of gentlemanly "yes ma'ams", a hug for his mom as she began to tear up, sitting on the grass with him as he explained his favorite verse (Isaiah 40:31) and complete (and happy, might I add) cooperation (even with over 2 hours of shooting) his heart became quite evident to me. Kevin is the definition of a great guy and a godly young man, and I can't wait to see where this journey takes him. Happy Graduation, Kevin!
