As I'm sure most of you know by now, Katie McGee is my girlfriend. So in this blog, I'm gonna spend less time talking about that and more time telling you a little bit about her.
First off, Katie is getting her Master's degree in Children's Ministry. MASTER'S DEGREE. You have to really love kids to go through all of that school, and man, she really loves kids. She's been working in Children's Ministry for three years now and has just been absolutely killing it. She's started a leadership team of kids within the kids ministry to disciple the kids on a more individual level and to train them in leadership from the time they're in 4th grade. Who does that? Katie does. Katie trains 4th and 5th graders to be leaders. And she's really good at it.
One of Katie's best qualities is her loyalty. On the Who's Who in the Zoo personality test, she's a Golden Retriever because she loves people and will never leave your side once she's attached to you. And by that I mean that she'll fight for you. She doesn't just let relationships slip through the cracks. She really, truly pursues people. And that's amazing to see. I know I've grown a ton just from watching her do that and I still have more growing to do. Her loyalty to others is astounding and admirable.
If you are just getting to know Katie, there's a chance you might get the idea that she's a little reserved. There's a little truth to that. She is a not-so-loud and very-much-so-proud introvert after all. But Katie is one of the funniest and most encouraging people I know. Get to know her and you'll find out that she's got all kinds of stuff up her sleeve that she can whip out at any moment to brighten your day faster than the sun can rise. Not to mention that she's a natural in front of the camera. I hardly have to pose her ever. I usually just say, "Go stand there" and she busts out a beautiful pose that looks amazing. It's pretty incredible actually.
So that's a little bit about Katie. Beyond being my girlfriend, she's a loyal, encouraging, inspiring, hilarious, beautiful friend. And she's my best friend. I love getting to date her.
