Katie and Curtis: ENGAGED!

Yesterday, June 21st, around 3:50 PM, all of CHoosE received a crazy picture via text from Katie, our graduated 4th year:

(this was at least a month before the engagement, but it’s a nice, cute pic of these two)

We have yet to hear how the proposal went down and how Katie reacted, but what matters now is that they are engaged! Katie and Curtis, may the Lord bless you two! May He shine His face upon you, guiding you in all circumstances and situations. And may His love be ever present in your lives!

We’re SOOOOOOO excited to see what God has in store for you two!

Today was the UVA graduation, and so our lone 4th year Katie Depp graduated with her BA in Psychology!

We’ll repost what we wrote last week:

Katie (AKA, KTD, K2D2, KTmD, K-ponine, Kathryn … just kidding, she hates it when people call her by her real first name) has been such a blessing to CHoosE. Her fabulous soprano singing, amazing acting abilities, and bubbly personality have infected our lives, and we will dearly miss her. May the Lord guide you as you depart from the University with your four years here behind you and a new journey ahead. May He be the light in your darkest moments, hope in your despair, peace in your storms. And may you shine brightly for His name!

It’s been a wonderful school year, full of memories that we’d love to relive. But, with summer here, take some time to relax, hang out with friends, go to places you’ve been wanting to go to, and to reflect. Enjoy your summers, and we’ll see you at the start of the fall 2014 semester!

(FUN FACT: In case you were wondering, yes, Katie was blonde her first year. That’s actually her natural hair color)

CHoosE Picnic and End of the 2013-2014 School Year!

At our annual CHoosE picnic, we started off by taking a bunch of awesome pictures. Below is our group pic:

Following that, we had that bittersweet time of affirming our only 4th year, Katie Depp.

Post-Concert Message!

Huge shout out to everyone who came out to our concert last night! We had a blast worshiping the Lord! We thank our fellow friends, parents, alumni, and others who came to support us, whether by simply coming to the concert, by giving us donations, or by praying for us!

Here’s the concert video if you weren’t able to see it or if you would simply like to watch the hilariousness and ridiculousness again!
