As promised, here's my post about the one and only BILLY! : )

This is Billy...

 He's a little bit silly as you can see... this picture was also taken at about 2am (notice the large energy drink in the lower right corner...)

Billy is 19 and just finished his first year of college. He's looking into becoming a firefighter... pretty noble. We've gotten to know him over the last year because his sister is still in our youth group and Billy has offered to help with some of our events. During the school year he volunteers his time to the Awana program (children's church.) He's a HUGE blessing there!

Billy is great at handball and kickball (he is also great at popping the balls by kicking them into the rafters...)

Billy has a super beautiful girlfriend that works at skinny dip and gets us a discount. But I really like her because she's so sweet... not for her discount... I promise!

Billy can play the guitar and sing really well! He can fill in when our worship leader is on vacation and do a fantastic job!

Billy likes late night runs to Taco Bell, Wendy's ... really any fast food place.

Billy is a great big brother. Even Amanda will tell you that ... maybe not when he's around... but I have heard her say that he's the best.

Billy is a expert high-fiver.

Billy is really really really tall.

But BEST OF ALL Billy has a heart for the Lord and it's evident when you spend time with him. He always makes time to play with little kids and so they all adore him. The teens love him because he's funny, energetic, and kind to everyone. And we love him because, well, he's Billy - and he's great! : )

Oh Lauren, I LOVE that you're putting the spotlight on a Godly young man. Awesome.

We need MORE of him in our churches today. No doubt, the Lord is going to use him mightily.

I made sure to pray for him this morning. (If he didn't have a girlfriend already, I know a cute blonde heading off to The Master's College in a few days!)
