Hi, my name is Tessa S. Van Dyke in this Memoir I have written some happy and sad things as well. In this past school year, I have made lots of friends and lost some friends I have lost some friends too. Mrs. Kim Childress who is my counselor at Grace Haven Counselling. She had 2 sons but her older son Jamie died in a flood a long time ago and her best friends daughter died in the flood too. When I heard that Mrs. Kim Childress my counselor had lost her son it made me very sad, because I have gone through the same because my dog Measha died when we were just coming back for Vacation and the day she died was my friend Kenzie’s birthday. Now every year it is Kenzie’s birthday I cry because my dog was my very best friend. Now that I’m older I get to a little bit more of my birth family. When I was going into 3rd grade I went to see Melissa(who is my mother) and Sheriff (who is my brother) at MSU were my brother goes to college now, then last summer for my 13th birthday I went to see Janasha (who is my sister) and Melissa again because the last time I saw Janasha was when I was 3 years old and I barely remember that because I was 3 when it happened and when your 3 you can’t remember things well. Also, remember when we first got Meahsa is was a good day for me because I knew what I was going to have a best friend who is a dog and her name was Measha. I am still sad to this day because of the loss of my dog\ best friend.
My golden calf is tv and bad music because my Cousin Abbie listens to bad music too and she kinda takes after me but I take after her by also listening to bad music. Because Abbie thinks I’m really cool.
God is my lamp in my life because in the dark time he will shine his light in my life and other people’s lives to. I know that God wants me to be a light in this dark and sinful world because eveyone is God’s child and he wants everyone to falshlights in this broken and dark world.
I need to trust God in the hard and sad times because he will make things right in my life in the thoses hard and sad times in my life. I really need God right now because with out I wouldn’t be a good friend to Abbey, Emma, Paige, Abby,Mia, Morgan.
When God calls me some day to make proffestion of faith in my church with my brother my mom adn dad and older brother and sisters and in laws to will be very happy for me and my brother.The reflection I have is that I will respond to God’s calling me to make profession of faith at my church with my brother Brend.
Something that is meaningful to me is my name Tessa means harvester. The name Tessa is very enjoyable. Tessa has also been associated with Quintessa, an English language form of Quintella, from a Roman given name, which means 5th born or 5th born daughter. The name Kayla is an English baby name. In English the meaning of the name Kayla is Variants of Kay keeper of the keys pure. Famous bearer Kayla is a character on daytime TV series days of Our Lives.
