When Ben was the youth minister at Oak Grove United Methodist Church, Hannah was one of our kids. She and I became close before long, and she reminded me of myself at that age. Her leadership qualities, musical taste (HUGE DMB fan in the year 2008? Crazy for a high school kid!) and personality made her stand out among her peers. She’s been thinking about working in ministry for a while now and it seems as though she’ll be interning with our youth program for the summer before she starts college… Which means she’ll be moving to Laurel in May. Which makes me a happy girl. She’ll even be living downtown! Yay for hangin’ with Hannah!
