Locks of Love

So... today was the end of a long journey that began over two years ago. A friend from Atlanta told me of a Christmas where everyone in her family gave of themselves instead of giving gifts one year. She had learned of an organization that accepted donations of hair and would then create beautiful hair pieces for children with diseases that caused them to be bald, Locks of Love. What a wonderful gift! To be able to sacrifice something of yourself so that someone else can feel a little less 'odd.' I was in-- I just didn't know it would take so long for my hair to reach a length long enough for a donation! So today, thanks to a great friend and amazing stylist, I chopped off my locks and got a new do too. Here is my first pic sans inches and what feel like pounds of hair. It's a little weird-- I've never had short hair before and I keep reaching back to put it in a ponytail, but I would recommend the experience to anyone able to give. :) Read more about the opportunity to give and see the finished product at

Jen and I have never been to a beach baptism, and it was a great day. 4 lives changed by our great Savior, Jesus Christ.
