Yesterday we celebrated my younger brothers 19 birthday! Holy cow 19! I still remember him as a little 7 year old who had the habit of hitting his head on things and driving me bananas. As I reflected on who he has become, I could not be prouder. My brother has dedicated his life to becoming a successful violinist. He practices hours on end and is constantly humming a tune. He lives in Tucson, AZ with my mom and step dad but has been out this way since the beginning of the month. He started the month in Chicago, touring with the Tucson Junior Strings and taking lessons from well-known violinists and the Chicago symphony. He is with us in Ohio until the end of the month when he will travel to Vermont to attend a prestigious music camp. My brother is also a devout Christian. He loves the Lord with everything he has and spends every morning divulging into the Bible. I love how much he loves the Lord. He inspires me every day to be a better Christian.
Watch one of his recitals here. You will not regret it!!
