Hallie Joanna

This is my sister. She's probably the most beautiful girl I've ever seen, she's my bestest friend, and she knows Jesus and His Word in a way that's been such a testimony to me. When I'm having trouble with my English homework, this is where I turn, because Hallie's been through it all--from biting knuckles at thinking about your in-class essay which you're pretty sure you just failed to the exhilaration that comes from finding out you aced it. When I'm on an emotional upheaval, she's always there to listen and help. And then there are the times when I can be stupid with her like I could be with nobody else, and we scream with laughter at each others' vocal talent or jokes or facial expressions or stories. Having to live apart from her for most of the last two years has been hard, but being with her--as I got to be Memorial Day weekend--is a blessing.

Hallie's fashion sense is one of my favorites. Instead of focusing on filling her wardrobe with neutrals, as I am wont to do, she purchases what looks good to her and on her. She has a knack for finding deals and withholding herself from paying too much for any item, but that doesn't stop her from buying some of the prettiest pieces I've seen (especially this dress!). I texted her today to ask her her best fashion advice, to which she replied: "Be confident. What you wear is often a creative statement of who you are, so when you have confidence in yourself as you are, that statement comes across so much more clearly and effortlessly! 'But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, "Why did you make me like this?"' Romans 9:20."
