Getting to horse camp this year proved more difficult than ever. We borrowed a beautiful trailer from some dear friend at church. They insisted we take it despite my continued protests! They truly have the mindset that their stuff on earth is to share and bless others with. I love that attitude!
We left in 100 degree weather and the old Suburban just wouldn't make it. My hubby didn't shift down (he has not pulled much) and the poor Sub overheated four times on the way there. We would have to sit and wait for it to cool down. Instead of getting to the campsite at 2:00 P.M., we got there at 7:30 P.M. A bit disappointing, but we made it!
I told Steve that I appreciated his attitude in this time of crisis. Several times it would start vapor-locking and lose power going up a hill. There was no where to go! We had to cross traffic and get the only shoulder that was available until we found a pull-out to stop and park to wait for it to cool off. The kids were really hot and impatient. Steve handled it so well. He kept looking for the blessings and there were many! He is so good for me in stressful situations. I know that is what makes him a good firefighter/Lt./and Paramedic. He doesn't panic!
Here we are the next day enjoying the beautiful sunshine. The campsite was perfectly level.
My cousin, Brad, who was visiting from Wisconsin, had owned a trailer for years. He helped us set it up and answered any questions we might have had. It was very handy!
The table was great for playing games out of the wind. The camper was truly a blessing! Thanks Chris and Judy!
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments.

I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
