Recently, I discovered that two people who I've known for years and years are my distant cousins. As it turns out, they are first cousins and grew up together as close as brother and sister. Through a conversation on a previous podcast, my running friend (and new cousin) Teresa, figured out that she and I were related through my grandfather and her great-grandfather, which also led her to connect her cousin Brian and myself. Brian was my co-worker at LifeWay bookstore years ago and has remained a dear friend of mine. Anyway, on Christmas Eve, these cousins of mine got together and we talked about their upbringing on the farm in Snowflake, Virginia, the family stomping grounds. They tell about the values they learned through family, farming, and faith and it just made my Christmas to get to share these experiences with my old friends and new cousins. I hope you all enjoy this cousin Christmas conversation as much as I did!
