linvilles in Love with neighbors

We met some amazing people yesterday. Meet the Smith(s):

They are AWESOME! They got married one week ago, but show incredible maturity. The Smith(s) are known separately as Ross and Sarah and have one spectacular life story going. We had them over for ice-cream on Friday night and enjoyed hearing some of their story, which went well into the morning. Stories about people who center on Jesus Christ are like that: captivating.

Ross is inspiring, spiritually and musically. Spiritually, he is a man of great faith, following wherever God leads, even if practical wisdom scorns it. Musically, because he can make magical things happen with a guitar (especially with his Batson guitar. I’ll talk about that momentarily). Sarah is encouraging, spiritually and relationally. Spiritually, because she showed such great trust in God as she waited for Him to work out the second biggest decision of her life (who she’ll marry). Relationally, she also displays incredible faith in following Ross as he braves the course God has set for him, blazing a trail that very few women that I know could follow. I mean, they are both just so awesome!

In addition to the amazing time we had reveling in the beauty and greatness of God, Ross blessed me with one of the greatest musical experiences of my life: getting to play a Batson guitar. This is no overstatement, and I play a Taylor 410-CE daily. I know what playing a good guitar feels like…and I got to play a GREAT guitar yesterday. This guitar is so different, so much better than what you see everywhere else, that a few months ago, Ross traveled to the headquarters of the Batson Guitar Company in Nashville, TN and asked the founders (the Batson brothers themselves) to sell him a franchise! They took him seriously, heard him out, and now Ross is taking steps here in Wake Forest, NC to introduce the South East to the best guitar in the world. Amazing fact: Ross is 20. Yeah, amazing. Nevertheless, ventures of this magnitude come with huge obstacles and the Smith(s) sincerely welcome all the prayers they can get.

Please check out the Batson Guitar Company website: here.

You can also see the Smith’s company, North Wake Nu Acoustic, here. It is totally awesome.

We look forward to seeing what amazing things God is going to do through Ross and Sarah Smith. Stay posted and watch with us!

in Love,

the linvilles
