The Most Important Thing #11: Abbie

Here’s another one of my favourite teenagers.  I started to get to know Abbie and her amazing family last year after we attended one of their home church services.  Abbie is one of those sunshiny people whose smile can light up a room and energy can lift you up in an instant.  Her maturity, thoughtfulness and joyful nature never cease to amaze me.

I’ve wanted to do a photo shoot with Abbie basically since I met her so I was really glad to have this “excuse”!  She has such a beautiful face and smile… it wasn’t hard to get a nice picture of her.  We took these shots indoors – I’m definitely a bigger fan of outdoor shots, but it was such a sunny day that it was hard to find a spot that wasn’t in direct sun or dark shade.  So it was a chance to practice something new.

Thanks Abbie 🙂

What do you believe is the most important thing in life?

I think the most important thing for me is getting to know God more and in new ways.  The more I grow in my relationship with Him and let Him change me, I’m a WAY happier person and have so much more to give others.  And that’s exciting because I think giving is really important too!  The more you grow in character, honesty, pushing out of your comfort zone, etc., the more you can give something of worth to others.  Besides that, I think really treasuring and fighting for the people I have in my life – my family and friends – is super important!  You don’t know what could happen in the future or how long you have…so making the most of the time you have now, the little things(like rain showers, conversations, walks, hugs), is HUGE… when you’re thankful and treasuring the present, then you’re really living life to the fullest!
