About a Boy

Just look at this kid...
My Camden, my one and only son {for now}...he melts my heart with that grin {even when he makes me want to pull my hair out}! 

He's a yellow...motivated by fun! 

According to the Motive Matters personality test, Mr. Camden's intrinsic motivation for fun makes up about 80% of his personality.

Which is why when I try to take a picture of him, it often ends up like this...

But, this week, Trev and I saw a different side to our son.  He cares SO MUCH about people!  He has this amazing capacity for making sure that everyone is having as much fun as him and if they aren't, he does what he can to change it.

Several times this week, this 4 year old had the intuition to know when High School students were uncomfortable or lonely and that was NOT ok with him.  One evening, we were sitting in a session and Camden noticed a boy {who tends to be alone a lot} by himself.  He asked me if he could go talk to him, and I told him that was ok.  So, he went and sat beside the boy and had the sweetest little conversation with him.  This happened several times with different teenagers, but it was in that moment that I was overcome with emotion for this little guy.  He has the BIGGEST heart and, boy, do we have a giant responsibility to make sure that he maintains that love and care for others. 

What an amazing personality God has given our son!  I pray fervently that he always wholeheartedly loves the Lord and that we foster his God-given gifts and talents in such a way that Christ is glorified through our boy fulfilling his calling in this life.

We love you, buddy, and we thank God for your boisterous personality!  We know God has BIG things planned for you!


  1. this is such a sweet post! What amazing things we cannot imagine What God has planned for his life!

  2. Jennifer, I just love it! How special it will be see him grow up into a caring young man with such a talent.

    Much love,
