Notes for Elizabeth

Elizabeth! It was always a pleasure running events with you! Don’t go far. Congratulations on graduation!

Elizabeth, I’m still bummed that we didn’t get to go to Israel together! Peace in your path forward!

Elizabeth, Congratulations on graduating! I’m so happy for you and your next adventure. You shine so bright, remember that always.

Elizabeth!!! The one and only Elizabeth is a college grad!!! I love you so much. You have a heart of gold, the best sense of humor, an incredibly thoughtful and intelligent mind, and a desire for justice and goodness. I’m excited to see how God will continue to bring healing in people’s lives through your friendship with them, and also through your career. I’m blessed to have you as one of my dearest friends!

I so enjoyed serving alongside you in the Events Committee this year! All the best to you as you continue on!

Elizabeth, out of ALL my Kings peers that I share a church community with, I am beyond thankful it’s YOU. Keep following Him with your huge heart of gold. He has big plans for you!! Love you so much!

Elizabeth. I am so thankful God brought you into my life during my Chamberlain year. I’ll never forget our chats at Clark Street, watching you get your tattoos, worshiping together at church, and how God continuously weaves our story together as he leads you forward in NYC. Keep chasing Him fully. Your life is so marked by his relentless love! Congratulations on a job well done, you fought for it.

Elizabeth!!! I LOVE your humor. I loved having you in class with me and admire you so much!

Dearest Elizabeth,

What an amazing person you are! I am always so impressed by your tenacity and grace. You truly embody the house of SOJO in an amazing way.

You love fiercely, you speak truthfully, and you forgive graciously. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your journey.

I am so proud of all you have accomplished!! Congratulations GRADUATE. 😀

Elizabeth I’m so proud of you!!! You are such an inspiration and your story is amazing! I know I only know a small part of that story and that God has so much more for you!!! Onward as you make history remember how remarkable you are!!!

Elizabeth…I don’t know if there are enough words to tell you how very proud of you I am. I have watched you overcome time and time again. So many odds were stacked against you reaching this moment but you dreamed and worked hard and I never had a doubt that you would make it to this moment! You are a graduate! You have a bachelors degree! You went to NYC alone and attended a school with such high standards and SUCCEEDED! You can do all things because you know your strength comes from
Christ. I can’t wait to see what you and the Lord do next. Continue to pursue HIS will and go forward with all you have into the mountains and valleys of this life as a graduated adult! I love you and am so very proud of you.

It has been so lovely getting to know you better this year. I love learning about your heart for justice. You are a force to be reckoned with! Congratulations on graduating. I know the Lord has big things in store for you!

Elizabeth, where do I even begin? You are such a joy to be around and you never fail to brighten up my day! I remember when we met sophomore year and you always had a seat saved for me in every class! I will never forget my 20th birthday where we had Dallas BBQs and went to pet some adorable puppies. Words can’t begin to describe how much I love you. You are such a kind, compassionate, and beautiful soul. I thank you for your friendship and for cheering me up whenever I’m feeling down. Thanks for sharing this last semester with me and I pray that God will bless you with abundant success!

P.S. Never forget: GO HOME


I can’t believe we are already here, though I’ve been thinking about your graduation since we drove you to New York years ago. As I think back on all of the various memories with you, I can’t help but smile; though some are memories of frustration! I know, we’re complicated beings. I recognize those were moments of growth, for you and me, as we navigate this crazy opportunity God gave us to be involved in each other’s lives. I’m so very PROUD of you and how much you’ve grown. I watched you grow through relationships for seasons and reasons, trekking up 14,000′ mountains, naive world views, going 1500 miles away to college, and stretching yourself to grasp things you though we’re out of your reach. You continually show an uncommon resilience and I look forward to seeing what is next for you. Though I get anxious, because you’re so far away, I know you’ll succeed with God’s spirit at work in you. Be present in this day and enjoy the commencement of an amazing accomplishment. You did it!! And we LOVE you.

Congratulations, gorgeous!! I loved watching you turn into the strong, beautiful, and independent woman you are today. You have something special, and I cannot wait to see where you end up! House of Truth forever <33

Elizabeth, it’s been a joy to get to know you over the years! Your spunky attitude and heart for having fun have always made Truth events such a blast! I’m wishing you the best for what’s next and hope to see you at alum events 🙂

Elizabeth, Congratulations, you did it! Happy Graduation!! Thank you for spending time with me and getting to know me. I have enjoyed talking about everything from God to Beyonce to how much I like tea […Insert The Office quote] 😉 Hehe! You are one of the bravest people on this planet. Full of hope, you’ve held onto the God of the universe who has tenderly and lovingly accepted you, and you have obtained a beautiful, passionate heart for Him. He has undeniably spoken through you and guided you in every footstep this year. For every reason you exist, I’m so blessed to have been your roommate. You are a beautiful woman inside and out! Thank you for making me laugh and showing me what it’s like to hold onto hope each and every day. I’m proud of you and I’m so excited that you’ve graduated! Now that you have your degree, you are somehow even more equipped to make a difference in this world, but honestly, your heart would’ve already been able to do it all! Congratulations! Much Love!

Mrs. Swan. I can’t even put to words all the feelings and love I have for you. I won’t try on this little page…but know that you are a friend of mine FOR.EVER! I love you to death and am so incredibly thankful for you life and friendship. You are wise, smart, emotional, funny, serving, faithful, loyal, kind, and FIERCE! I’ll see you around my little Russian, but make it sooner than later please!

Elizabeth!! You are so joyful and remind me to take a load off every once in a while, while also being a fierce friend and fighter for truth. Your love for Jesus is evident, and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you next!
