30til30: Day 22

I have 30 days until I turn 30, so I thought I'd try to choose 30 moments that have helped shape who I am and want to be. Coming up with the list has been challenging...and enlightening. These are in no particular order.

22: Becky Biebel.

Becky has had an incredible amount of influence on me. She's been my mentor for about ten years now. Our relationship started out very officially with meeting on certain days of the week and morphed into a life-on-life style of mentoring where we'd just see each other whenever and I'd watch her live. She is a second mother to me, and I think she would consider me an extra daughter. We're also great friends. We're very close, and I don't think anything will ever change that. Things I know and appreciate about Becky:
  • When she says she will pray for me about something, she REALLY prays. It's not just a catch phrase.
  • Becky LOVES the Word. She is more passionate about digging deeper into the Bible than anyone I know.
  • I love talking to her. She is a great listener and advice-giver. She also isn't afraid to say, "I have no idea."
  • Becky is an incredible mother and wife.
  • She truly cares and wants the best for me.
  • She is one of the most creative people I know. 
  • She writes incredible poetry. 
  • Becky is HILARIOUS. 
  • She loves her dog, Rusty's so cute.
  • She dances.
  • Her personality is very unique. 
  • She laughs like no one else.
  • She will always cry with me.
How it shaped me:
  • She has literally made me a better person.
  • I am a better Christian because Becky has poured into my life.
  • I have a good grip on how to raise second generation Christians because I've watched her.
