Noah, jumping over sisters


Our son Luke’s photo will be here next winter.

Don’t you think he’s gonna have fun?

We do.


Lainee and daddy (in his same ole jacket, the one he got back in 1993!) I love that about him.


me in my NEW jacket or "sleeping bag with arms and a hood". Forget the glamour! I was so warm!

christopher's turn

i got braces last week. trying to avoid jaw surgery. In this photo you can't even tell!

God bless you all.

I’m thankful for your encouragement and emails.

Did you know I get negetive emails and comments?  Yes. I do.

It’s even more encouragement to press on and live like we believe God wants us to.


Thank you for the snow, Lord.  Reminding us that you can wash our hearts and cleanse our sins away, making our hearts whiter then snow.

Because Jesus loves Children,


time to make the hot chocolate!

    Someone leaves ugly comments for you? hmmph! Well, well…I’ll just roll them up into a great big snowball! (Leave my Sister alone, you big bully!)
    Glad I got THAT out of my system! :D Truly though, I so love You and your sweet heart for your family and orphans and for loving me, as well! You gotta know that when Bullies attack, You are doing His Work! He’s Proud and I am, too.
    The braces will hopefully fix your jaw problems and no surgery will be needed, in Jesus’ Name! Warm Hugs, Sweet Friend!

    Laura, I love reading your life….or at least the little insights you share so honestly. As I read today’s post, I was reminded of Matthew 10. Jesus is giving instructions to his disciples and letting them know about the realities of following Him. I really love the part where he tells them that in some towns people are not going to be receptive to His message through them. In some translations Matthew 10:14 say’s “If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.” Read the Message translation…even better. Press on sister. Jesus is moving through you and your family.
