Taking a break!

Well, the time has come for me to take a break from the little things that are cluttering up my life and focus more on what I know that God has called me to do. Please pray for me during this time, that I will draw closer to Him and that I will love and serve my family with all my heart! I will miss hearing from you, but I'll be back in November. Blessings!

One Year!

Last Saturday we celebrated our first year in our "new" house! I still can't believe that we are living here! It really is a very long story as to how God opened amazing doors that looked like they were slammed shut. If you want to hear it all, I'll tell you some other time! But here we are, in the town I have lived since I was one, two minutes from my parents, eight minutes from his! As you can see, there is much to be done, but slowly we're getting things done! Living here is such an amazing blessing! Don't worry, we will paint next summer!

Loving my Ergo!!!

I got my new Ergo in the mail last week and I am already madly in love with it! It's not really working for Havilah very well right now as she really doesn't like the constraint of the infant insert and yet her legs just aren't quite big enough to straddle me comfortably. But Bethany LOVES it. The other day I had her in there for hours! I washed dishes, did laundry, washed windows etc.. She finally fell asleep so I easily slid her out and onto her bed. SO EASY!!! The best part is, nothing, not my back, shoulders, hips, hurt even a bit, and she is almost two! I am so thankful for this amazing blessing! Oh, and by the way, I am not suddenly young and slim. That is my sister Anna!


Just wanted to write a quick note saying how much we enjoyed going to watch the new movie "Fireproof". We went out on a date last night and were able to watch it in Salem. It was not the most professional movie we've ever watched, but what it had to say was very powerful! I'd say it would be good for any marriage! If you get a chance, take the time to watch it!
