People Who Influence

There are those in our lives that shape us and encourage us to be who we are, those who give countless hours to care for us. For me, one of those people was my grandmother, Lee King. Here we are on my wedding day (long ago now).

For those of you who read my blog, I thought you might want to see a few of the awesome people I work with.

Here are a few of the smiling faces that make up our firm (they are still smiling during the last two weeks of tax season–outstanding).

Our offices are in Macon, Georgia and Perry, Georgia. We have 125 people in the firm.

Those Who Encourage

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭27‬:‭17‬ NIV)

We all need someone in our lives to encourage us, someone to cheer us on. For me, one of those people who has always been there for me (even in my mother’s womb), is my twin brother, Harry Hall.

Here are a few ways he encourages me:

  1. He listens, as in, really listens to me.
  2. He corrects me when my attitudes or actions are wrong (which I often need).
  3. He shares good books that help me grow.
  4. He provides constancy in friendship–no matter what happens, I know he is there.
  5. He prays for me (and doesn’t just say he will).
  6. He models good character.
  7. He runs with me, encouraging good health.

So which one is Harry? That’s him on the left.

 

Vacation in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains

I recently had the joy of a few days off with my family and our one-eyed beagle.

We have visited the Smoky Mountains for over twenty years and still enjoy the beauty of this place.
