I'm trying to catch up here again. This summer has flown by and we have had a lot of activity around here. The first picture is of my dad, Russ with his pride and joy (and my inheritance if he doesn't wreck it) a 1969 Chevelle. I LOVE this car! I guess I'm a chip off the old block when it comes to Chevelles. If you want to go from ZERO to SIXTY in about 5 seconds, you want to take a ride in this baby! My dad was picking Josh up to take him to the annual Hot August Nights Cruise downtown. He got to spend the night and went to the Threshing Bee afterwards and then the car show on Sunday. Marcus got to join them on Sunday and they had a wonderful time! Thanks Dad and Diana
We had a new family come over for dinner. It was a pleasure getting to know Brian and Kelly with their three sweet little girls and brand new baby boy. It was lovely holding an infant again! I met Brian and Kelly at a Fire department function. Brian is a volunteer and Kelly is a SAHM who is going to start homeschooling her five year old this year. It was a pleasure talking with them and we are looking forward to getting to know them better. Thanks for coming over guys!
This is "Little Miss Dirty Face"! Oh my! She keeps coming in looking like this after being outside.
Here is another time she did it. The kids and I couldn't stop laughing! This is something the boys would have done, but I wasn't expecting it from Lily!
"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. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
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
