Beard Of The Week | Philip Hatter
It's Beard Of The Week day and this week's BOTW is Philip Hatter!
DJ and I do not know Philip personally, but have been so blessed by his participation in our Beard-A-Thon. He was one of the ten Stranger Beards who signed up after hearing about us on Bearded Gospel Men, but despite never meeting him, he is no longer a stranger. He is a faithful brother in Christ who is helping us bring our baby home. I love this picture of Philip because it captures his awesome beard and shows what I can only imagine to be an awesome personality. We love Philip and so should you!
Philip lives in Roanoke, VA with his wife and two boys (with a third on the way!). He is the founder and director of Thistledown Puppets, a family friendly puppet company. While he does like to perform, he now mostly builds puppets for companies and performers around the world. Guys, his puppets are amazing... go check out his work now! You will not be disappointed.
Philip has a really great beard and has been so eager to grow for us. He is a fan of both manly facial hair and adoption, which he describes as "one of the most powerful pictures of the gospel in the world today". While he and his wife have not ruled out adoption themselves, in the meantime, he wanted to play a small role in making it a reality for someone else. And that someone else is us! Believe me, this is no small thing and we are beyond grateful for the role he is playing in our adoption journey.
Philip still needs sponsors, so log on today and show him some love! Not only will your sponsorship go towards bringing our child home, but it will help Philip as he competes for our July incentive: beard tonic from Austin Street Apothecary. It's a win-win situation so sponsor Philip and vote for his beard today!
