Rebekah Wiggins

This is for my very best friend while I was growing up. Today is her 30Th birthday and I wanted everyone to know how wonderful she is.

She is married and has two beautiful children...who look just like her. Now that we live in separate places and clearly have different lives, we find ourselves talking to one another maybe once every few months. But like everyone says...."we pick up talking like it was yesterday."

But with Rebekah, the only thing our conversation leads to is Jesus.
When we lived across the street from each other growing up, we would play everyday. She was my first friend at 4 years old. I remember...I was riding my three wheeler- Cabbage Patch.

Not sure how the conversation started, but it has yet to end. She was the first person to ever ask me if I wanted Jesus in my heart. I did not understand at the time, but what she said to me that day began the process of me coming to know the Lord.

Wow! Rebekah, you did a pretty important thing and I am thankful.

I know she is raising her children to be the same way...just read her blog and you will see her desires to serve her family and the Lord.
I wish I could find some old pictures of because I have a ton... but here is one showing her true friendship.

She is the pregnant one to the far left jumping (kinda).....isn't she so cute?

If you want to- go say Happy Birthday to her and maybe you will make a great friend like I did.

You have grown so much since our time of prayer in my room. I love our conversations about the Lord. He has captured my heart!! You are one of His favorites. I know you inspire many people to grow to know Him. I love you girl! Hope to hear from you soon.
