Where do I begin with this family…Shaun knew both Kyle & Lauren long before I did. He went to college with Lauren and met Kyle through church. Kyle was actually one of Shaun’s groomsmen at our wedding. My relationship with the Nelson family deepened when they were brought on as pastors at our church last Fall.
What strikes me was the intentality that they put into building relationships with families at our church. Both Kyle & Lauren have an understanding of relational ministry, even if that means getting messy in a relationship. I have to speak to how I appricate my relationship with Lauren, she is not afraid to ask hard questions; you know, the ones that most women hide from. I was so honored that they were willing to let me capture who they are as a family and pray many blessing for them as they continue to love our church community.
