More than an awesome travel buddy, Deidra is probably one of my biggest accountability partners. We met a couple years ago while I was finishing up my last semester at Auburn and she was currently at Auburn finishing up her Freshman or Sophomore year debating on whether or not to transfer to Southeastern Bible College. We both graduated from Trussville, but since shes a youngin, I think I was out of there before she even got up to the High School. However, you'd NEVER think she was 3-4 years younger than me. She is full of wisdom and craves God's Word more than anyone I know. I often find myself jealous over her love for His Word. Its incredible. Last Fall we had the priviledge to lead a Bible Study together, and I know I learned just as much from her as our girls did. She is such a pure example for ALL of us.Her passion for the Lord is so contagious and Id have to say that God has used her more than shell ever realize to influence me to dig deeper into my Word. I'm so blessed by her zeal and I cant wait to see which direction the Lord takes this friendship both Spiritually and physically. I have a feeling we've set a steady pace that will keep truckin' on into the future. When you get 2 girls together who share so much in common with the Spirit and in similar hobbies......its hard to keep us in one place.
I thank God everyday for the priviledge to "do life" with my little Deig.
