God's Home

Tonight, while saying her prayers, Ella said, "God we are coming to your home tomorrow."

I love how going to church is so much a part of her life. She knows that every Sunday, we go to "God's Home". She expects it. It is part of our life together as a family.

One Sunday we missed church for being out of town, and I overheard her telling God that she was "so, so sorry for missing His day."

I tell Ella she can pray or talk to God about anything she wants to. We do not say a memorized prayer at night. I tell Ella that all God wants from her is a relationship -- for her just to talk to Him. Some nights her prayers aren't very typical and some nights they make perfect sense. But that doesn't matter. At the age of 4, she gets it. She knows God is listening and that He cares about her -- He cares about every hair on her head. And that it does not matter if your prayers and needs are big and important, or just tiny little random thoughts. There are no right or wrong things to prayer about. He just wants us to talk to Him, and Ella does just that.

It is never too early (or too late) to start instilling in our children the importance of going to church and of spending time with God each and every day.

What a Blessing!

A beautiful new blessing joined our family 10 days ago and he couldn't be any more perfect! I love him so much already and am so proud of him. What a little miracle! I just don't understand how anyone can see a baby and not believe in God.

I thank God each day that my entire family is healthy. Too many babies and children are really sick and have too many burdens at too little of an age. I am so, so thankful.
My brother and his beautiful son, Carter. A perfect baby boy. We look forward to watching and helping you grow into the wonderful, confident, loving, hard-working, loyal & honest man that we know you will be -- just like your daddy. Please know how much we love you and that we will always be here for you and your sister.

I was struggling. I turned to God. He answered.

I needed Him, and I called out to Him for help. And He was there. It has never been more clear to me. I cannot describe the feeling of complete relief and comfort. I knew that I was not alone.

I have always known that God answers prayers, and that we need to turn to Him in all times, but I am in complete AWE of how present He was during this particular cry out for help. I am so thankful He showed me His power and might, and He showed me how to be more aware of His works, because it absolutely strengthened my relationship with Him, and I walk away from this experience a much stronger Christian. I have more faith than ever before.

Amazing and wonderful things happen when you ask God into your heart and allow Him to be in your life... better yet, be in control of your life.
His presence is all around us. Sometimes we stray and it just takes a little more for us to see it. Please believe in Him. Have faith. And trust in Him.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
Joshua 1:9
