You are amazing, Kivi Girl! You set your goals high and accomplish them. You don't let your age stand in your way, in fact, you go the extra mile to prove you can overcome. You read like a fiend, conquering books in mere days, you jump higher, Heely faster, and memorize large amounts of Scripture. You were a Youth Leader this year in Awana, finished Algebra I, and earned your Meritorious Award. You love your brothers and sisters although you are starting to want to be with your friends more and more, bike riding to their houses, and they live miles away. But you will always have a soft spot for the baby of the family and right now that is your Swiggy. The Commitments you made to God and your future husband and shared with your church family will guide the decisions you make in life. Hold on tight to your Heavenly Father and talk to him more and more every day! We love you so much, Pea! Happy 13th Birthday!
