When I first read this question I wasn't sure exactly who to write about. I looked to the left of my computer at a picture of some of my dearest friends and I saw Melissa Goodchild (soon to be Howerton!!!) smiling and I knew that this post had to be for her.
I met Melissa my first semester at CofO and I have grown to love her more and more ever since. Not only is she one of THE most beautiful women that I have seen but she radiates a love of God. She literally lights up a room with her smile. Her spirit is so contagious! Her words are always encouraging and uplifting. She speaks truth and never compromises her beliefs even in the case of feeling rejected. I really can't say enough about her. She is just one of those people that you crave to be around because she is such a great example of a godly woman and you want to be more like her. Melly recently got engaged and will be marrying the love of her life Andrew. I can't wait to see Mel as a wife and learn from her. I am so blessed to have her in my life. God is so good.
