FEATURED MOTHER – TARA HOLT
The moment I found out I was carrying you in my stomach; I fell in love with you.
You have truly been my greatest blessing in life. I was so honored to know that the Lord trusted me enough to raise you.
I recall every phase of your growth and the different phases of our relationship up to this point.
As a baby you were so mild tempered. Everyone said you were an older wise man trapped in a baby’s body. Even as a toddler, you were a calm child. It was not until you reached 2nd grade that I began to notice your rambunctious side. You loved to laugh and laugh hard. At that age you would get so tickled at the smallest things and laugh yourself to the floor. And now that I think about it, you still do that today. I love that you love to laugh.
For as long as I can remember you have always been caring person. You were very attentive and protective of me even as a young boy. The protective nature God placed in you has always been evident.
As you hit your preteen and teenage years I began to see you develop into a young man. I could see you then and now trying to establish your individuality and independence. It is bittersweet. You have moved from solely depending on me to only needing my guidance to lead you in the right direction.
You have a love for people and a greater love for God. At 16, you have many challenges and influences facing you daily. I thank God that you maneuver through those with guidance from the Lord. I love to watch you pray and read your bible every day. It blesses me to know that while combating the pressures and influences of this world, you know where you help comes from. Jordan you are an awesome young man and I am proud to call you my son.
I pray for you daily and I know that everything that God has promised you, you will have. He’s created a huge platform for you to bring His people home. He’s given you talent and skills in athletics and academics all for the building of His kingdom. Continue to walk in your purpose and trust Him and He will bless you abundantly.
I love you to life Jordan and I look forward to seeing all that God has planned for your life.
