That’s right. Jonathan Allen Laurie was born 24 years ago. My wife Cathe and I are so proud of him and we thank God for the kind, gentle, and loving young man he has grown up to be.
As you know, since his brother’s early departure to heaven, Jonathan has gone through one of the hardest crises a person can face on this earth. He was very close to Christopher, and I know his brother is proud of him today, because my oldest son is very much alive–not on earth, but in heaven.
Jonathan has dramatically deepened his commitment to Christ and is serving the Lord. He has always been soft-spoken, for the most part, but he has bravely taken his story and shared it, challenging thousands of people to trust God, no matter what comes your way in life.
So today, we celebrate his birth, his life, and his future.
You can leave a birthday greeting for him, if you would like, right here.
