I don't have the energy for any details. I don't have the time for any details. But there are going to be some BIG changes coming to our household very soon. In the next few days we will go from a family of 4 to a family of 7 as a friend of ours and her two boys will be coming to stay with us for a while. All of your prayers are coveted, as it's a seriously serious situation. Pray for easy transition for all of the kids. Pray for safety for all parties involved. Pray for peace and security for my sweet friend. Pray that my husband and I can be who we need to be in this, that God may get all the glory from an ugly situation. Pray that we'll have the right words to say, and that we'll know when not to say a word. I know I've been kinda absent lately, but things have been crazy, to say the very least. But I thank you all so much for hangin in there with me. I've been sick for the last week with a migraine. Entirely too much stress in my life. I know this situation isn't making things better, but I LOVE that we get to be in this position to help someone, like we were helped all those years ago when we were first starting out. I LOVE that we get to be the help that so many women desperately need and never get. I'm so thankful we're in a position to help. Pray that God gets the glory. Oh yeah, and please continue to pray for Kate, Stellan, and The Thompson Family. Love to all.
I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a photographer. I'm a lover of Jesus. My house is a mess, my kids are dirty, we eat take out more often than not. My life is loud, busy and crazy. And that's okay with me.
This is Eric, the man you've been praying for. He's a paramedic. He quilts in his spare time. No, I couldn't make that up :) He has NASH (a form of liver disease, non-alcoholic) and diabetes, but those things don't define him. He's a man of God, an insanely wonderful husband, and the best daddy in the world.. Just ask these guys..
Our daughter Ali, she's 9. She's fiercely opinionated and strong willed. She's a Daddy's girl, but the umbilical cord hasn't but cut from me, either. She's a gymnast, and proud of it. She spends more time upside down or turning flips than she does walking. She's crazy smart, and absolutely sure of it. She is my insufferable little know it all.
Our son Dylan, 7. We lovingly refer to him as Chubs. Or Chubby. Or fat boy. Ahem. He is all boy, as you can see by his crazy wild energy. He has the highest pain tolerance of any child I have ever met. He plays soccer and does gymnastics, but truly he is a gamer, a nerd. He is an avid reader and loves to climb. Not to be outdone by his sister, he's a drama king, but to him, I'm the best mommy in the world.
I'm here to use my voice. So many people can't. In a world of darkness, I just want to help God's light to shine through. I pray that my words are His, and my love is His, as well. This is my journey through the darkness. To start are the beginning of the story, click here.
