And Another Graduate!

And another graduate!!! This one has been a long time coming for sure! My husband received his Doctoral degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary last month. I am so very proud of him. He has worked long and hard and kept at it even during difficult seasons.

My husband receiving his Doctorate
 I was so proud when they introduced him as Dr. Phillips.

We enjoyed being on the beautiful seminary campus but my favorite thing (apart from seeing my husband walk across the stage) was the sound of the singing in the chapel! Such exuberance and expressive voices lifted up in worship and it was beautiful.

We all are so proud of our graduate. Our family has been very supportive and encouraging for my husband to keep pressing forward to earn his doctorate. I think he grew weary at times but he just kept plugging away and pressing on. Our prayer is that God will continue to use us to be an instrument to teach the Gospel, for my husband to preach, and for our family to be a witness and bring glory to God with our lives.
