BC: Made With Love by Stewart & Girls January 2014

FC: ...A woman who fears The LORD is to be praised! Proverbs 31:30 | Happy 50th Birthday Denise! Wife, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Aunt and Friend

1: Denise, Today we celebrate 50 beautiful years of YOU! We want to pour our love on you and remind you of why you are so special to your family and friends. Enclosed you will find all of the many ways you are loved, cherished and appreciated by those in your life. We love you so very much.

2: The day I met Denise was the best day of my life! I knew there was something particularly special about her and my intuition has proved to be true. In our 33 years together , Denise has demonstrated love, patience, endurance, strength, forgiveness, compassion, stability, leadership, concern, knowledge, wisdom, friendship, deep spirituality, prayer support, guidance, wisdom and a zillion other things! On top of all that, she has been a magnificent mom to Tiff and Jazz, and I have cherished and valued her as my best friend through every mountain and valley we have faced together. I cant imagine spending even one minute without her by my side. I thank God every day that His plan for me included Denise. She is by far my greatest blessing! With heartfelt love and gratitude... -Stewart

3: An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10

4: There are SO many wonderful memories of Mom, I don't know if I can even pick one. I would say one of my most special memories is how much Mom did for my wedding. She saved her violin money for months so she could buy me the perfect cake. She made sure I had everything I had dreamed for my wedding. She helped me find my perfect dress, which is a memory I will never forget. There are some things you never want to do without your Mom, and getting married was one of those. Mom was flawless on my big day, patient, kind, and a wonderful hostess to all of our guests. She made me feel so loved, and went above and beyond. Mom, thank you for all you did on the most special day of my life. Thank you for the love you have shown my husband, and for making him a part of our family. I love you more than you will ever know!! -Tiffany

5: I have to say my all time favorite thing about Mom is that she has become my spiritual mentor. The most special and dear memory I hold in my heart is that the day Mom started writing her book, I was sitting on her bed in Taejon, South Korea watching her write. I remember around that age I asked my Mom to show me how to pray spiritual warfare. She gave me a sheet of the armor of God and spiritual prayers. I remember even as a child I would go to Mom and ask her to show me how to pray. That is because she has always been the greatest prayer warrior I've known in my life. In my twenties, I have called Mom for every single thing spiritual you can think of. She is the tell-it-like-it-is even if it's not what you want to hear kind of leader. She has an uncanny ability to be completely honest and speak discernment and prophetic words from The Lord in a way that doesn't offend but that motivates. She is by and far my spiritual leader and I am so beyond blessed to call her my Mom. I only hope I can be the same leader to my children one day. -Jasmine

6: I'll never forget how special and loved Denise made me feel when she told me this Christmas that having me there "made the family finally complete." What an incredible phrase for me to hear as I celebrated the holidays with my new family. I am very grateful that she shared those words with me and for how included it helped me to feel. Denise might not be the most "huggy" person but she never turns away hugs when I come to greet her!I have grown to love Denise and her uncanny ability to liven up a conversation. Bringing in any number of details from her work, faith, thoughts, and past experiences I can always look forward to an entertaining and thought provoking dinner discussion. I appreciate her humor, depth, and honesty and the dialog she always entreats. -Matt Seliga

7: I tried to narrow it down to one memory, but there are so many that are too good not to share. I'll never forget the first time I heard Denise's famous "animal sounds" at the dinner table... and the look on Tiffany's face. Or her stirring rendition of "What does the Fox Say", complete with choreography. Thank you Denise for always knowing how to liven up the occasion. On a more serious note, I could not be more thankful to have such a wonderful Mother-in-Law. The love that you have shown me over the past 4 years has been such a great encouragement to me. Thank you for all you do! -Ryan Crews

8: What a milestone in your life to be 50 years old. I just wanted to let you know how much I love you and have enjoyed our many times together through the years. We are very blessed to have you in our family. My prayer is that you have a wonderful and blessed birthday. Thank you for being such a wonderful daughter-in-law. -Mom (Sherry)

9: We know that Nanny Karen could not be here to celebrate your 50th with you in person, but she is here in spirit. She is celebrating with the Lord today because of the beautiful woman of God her daughter has become. We know if she were here, she would be so proud. -In Loving Memory of Mom (Nanny Karen)

10: You are such an amazing woman. You truly are a Godly woman that is gifted in so many ways...musically, prophetically, great communication (speaking and writing), a great teacher, a great encourager, and many other gifts. On top of all that God has gifted you with a superior intelligence. I thoroughly enjoy having conversations with you about God, spiritual growth, His Word, etc. One of the things that I have cherished the most is the times when you have prophetically spoke into my life and encouraged me with love, support, and wisdom. You are not ashamed of the gifts God has given you, and I appreciate you allowing God to use you at the appropriate moment. Thank you so much for being a great sister-in-law and most importantly a awesome sister in Christ. I hope you have a great birthday and many more. You are a great addition to our family. We are truly privileged and blessed that God chose you to be a part of our family. -Buck Osborn

11: You are truly a woman after Gods own heart. You are filled with Wisdom and Understanding and you always bless those around you with your gift of encouragement. I admire your dedication to your family and to your career, and the way you accomplish every task or goal with the spirit of excellence. The one thing that stands out to me above all the amazing gifts you posses is your prayers. I love and appreciate that when you say you will pray over, for or with me you do! You have stood beside me in prayer for my own healing, my children's and grand-children's healing, for my marriage, for our jobs and careers - and the list goes on. You are a mighty prayer warrior and I am blessed beyond measure when I am lifted up in your prayers. I pray you have a very Blessed Birthday and that the year ahead will be filled with abundant blessings beyond anything you could ask or imagine. Thankful to be your Sister-n-love! -Doren Osborn

12: Denise is the sister I never had! We can have our girl talks and laugh, giggle, and cry all at the same time! I always feel welcome when I go visit and it's nice to just sit on the couch together and be ourselves! She will always be precious to me and I love her soooo much! It makes me feel so good to know she is finally 50!!! I'm not alone now !! Happy birthday sis!!! -Louise Ayres

13: Denise has shown me how a person that does not come from a Christian background can overcome adversity with God's grace! She is grounded in Christ and wants to express that to other people she is around. -David Ayres

14: When I lost a piece of jewelry at Nana's and I was upset, Aunt Denise and I went outside together and she said lets pray and ask God to help us find it. Right after we found it in the grass!!! She has always been very special to me and lots of laughs!! Love her!!! -Sarah Ayres

15: Aunt Denise is the BEST! She is always so loving, caring and uplifting! I admire her love for Jesus and hope to grow into the strong Christian woman she is one day. I love you so much, Aunt Denise. Happy 50th!! -Kelsey Ayres

16: I will forever remember the first time I met Stewart and Denise. It was in Korea right outside their apartments. They had just parked their vehicle and were coming up the walkway toward me. Right at the moment Denise opened her mouth to say hello a fly flew directly into her mouth. She started coughing and couldn't stop. As such, she had to excuse herself and go to the apartment for a drink of water. Stewart and I had a chance to visit for just a couple quick moments while Denise was triaging her fly situation. Who knew it would be the beginning of such a special relationship! Denise has been such an encouragement to me over the last 16 years. The whole Koontz family has grown to be such an important part of my life. What a privilege it has been to walk through these years with the Koontz’s. In both our lives we have walked through deep valleys and high mountaintop experiences. What a joy to have the body of Christ to mourn and rejoice with us as we walk through these stages of life. Truly, Denise is a kindred spirit whom I find myself exceeding grateful for and immeasurably blessed by knowing. Blessings to you dear sister! -Laurie Burkavage

17: Our favorite memory would have to be the day of Ryan and Tiffany’s wedding, you looked so beautiful, you could just see the love you had for both Tiffany and Ryan and how proud you were of them both. By watching you that day, Dennis and I both felt very blessed that our son would have an amazing mother-in-law that would love him as her own and be a Godly influence in his and Tiffany’s life. We thank you from the depths of our hearts for you and pray that you have an amazing 50th Birthday. May God Richly bless you and Stewart and wishing you the very best 50th Birthday -Dennis and Cherie

18: I love you because almost six years ago when I moved down to Texas you welcomed me into your family with open arms. I am grateful for the MANY meals you have cooked for me, the times you have treated me to dinner, and the MANY cups of coffee I was blessed to share with you in what became my home away from home. You have such a big heart and I love your ability to see people for who they are in Christ and not for where they fall short. It is hard to find people that love others the way that you do, without judgment, just as they are. I think you have such a gift for seeing the good in people and to me that is a true testament to your faith. u are someone that I believe loves others the way we are called to love. Thank you for loving me, praying for me, and allowing me to be a part of your family. You have blessed my life tremendously and I am so grateful. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!! Happiest 50th birthday!! You wear it well girlfriend! - Lindsay Jackson
