I’m from Wilmington, NC. I’d say it is most famous for being the place where Michael Jordan and Jason Roy grew up. Also, it happens to be a lovely tourist attraction with a beautiful and historic downtown, Carolina and Wrightsville Beaches, and the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher. I’d also go out on a limb to say that it’s a great place for local restaurants, and I’d encourage any foodies (like myself) to visit! My favorite scripture is Deuteronomy 31:6, and my favorite translation of this verse is from the NLT, which reads: “So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” This speaks to the heart of what I love about Jesus and what I need to know in my daily life– no matter what others do, say, or think about me, God will always be there, and he’ll never abandon me. What comfort! I have a lot of favorite places: the beach, kayaking down a river, hiking on a trail, driving on an open road with the windows down when it’s beautiful outside, sitting in a comfy chair reading a book, and the list goes on. The trick is that all of these places have to have one thing in common to be my favorite. They absolutely MUST include my husband, Greg, and our precious pup, Tucker!
