I am coming out of a VERY long hiatus to tell you all about my brother, Andrew. There is no possible way a blog post could cover just how great he is so I'm going to keep this short and sweet and trust God's plan.
(yay for bumping into each other at the airport on a business trips!)
Obviously, I'm a little partial since he is my brother but he is pretty great. He is 30 and currently resides in West Texas.
I think the best way I can describe him is a Christian Renaissance man. He enjoys reading and culture one day, a sporting event the next (we're big Cardinals fans), shooting, and hiking with his dog, whenever the opportunity arises. The man is smart and can debate pretty much any subject, too.
(He's on the far left. The beard comes and goes and he always looks handsome.)
More importantly, he loves God, is active in his church, and drops everything when a friend or family needs help or support. (He spent this past Christmas with a friend who was hurting and, a few years ago, stayed with me and worked remotely for two weeks when my husband was overseas for work so that I wasn't alone with our then one-year-old. How many guys do that?)
Did I mention he's amazing with children? My son adores him and I have no doubt our daughter will have him wrapped around his finger soon as well.
God couldn't have blessed me with a better brother.
