From His Word

Joshua 24:15
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Prayer and Praise

  • God's Perfect Provision
  • Allow us to teach our children His ways
  • His pefect plan for children (brothers & sisters?)

Hello there! Does anyone want to 'fess up' to having sent my boys Lego Ninja Costumes after Halloween?! They LOVE them!! THANK YOU!

I just don't know who 'YOU' is!!

We also received Christmas Advent Calanders.....and I don't know who to thank for those! We will enjoy using them! We praise God for our family!! Unless you let me know who you are, I guess we'll give real thanks to whom it is ultimately due:

James 1:17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

Thanks for praying for our meeting on Monday the 21st at 3pm, concerning the sibling group to possibly be placed with us as well....Peace That Passes Understanding going on over here....God's kids, not ours. His life through us, not our own!!


Veteran's Day Kindergarten Presentation

We had a great day today at the Assisted Living Home in Kremmling. Isaac's kindergarten class did a great job of presenting some Veteran's Day songs and poems.

Lunch with Grandma Sue,

Making Poppies Flowers for the residents,

and seriously enjoyed the views on the drive home...

No 'official' snow yet for us up here!! CRAZY!!

I'm going to have to stop saying 'I live in the Arctic'....for this year, I'll say, 'I live in God's Country'!

Thanks for being our family..not sure how many of you still check this website...but, know that I'm grateful for you! We covet your prayers for a possible placement of 4 young children in our home. It would be a foster/to adopt placement, and we are just praying, praying, praying...His will not ours. His children, not ours. His kingdom come, His will be done!!

Life More Abundantly

I sure have gotten laxi-das-ical (hahaha, is that even a word??!) about posting on here latley...sorry about that!

We are well.

Busy, but definitely living life more abundantly because of our relationship with JESUS!

Isaac and I sang a duet, 'When the roll is called up yonder',on Sunday - loved that so much. We ended it with singing 'because of Jesus, I'll be there, singing glory to his name' - it was a nice testimony of who our faith is in!!

This was a 'staged' photo as Marand forgot to take one when we were actually singing....I made sure Isaac's pant legs were outside his boots for the real thing hahahah!

We had a ball with Uncle Shaun visiting the other day.....


Communal Living Friends

So our Friends and communal living Jesus family are moving this weekend....Let's just say :( .

We are sure gonna miss the them! They've brought Eggo waffles, music, and laughter....many evenings of yummy dinners...not to mention have willingly been my AOD (adult on duty) when I needed them! What a blessing to be JESUS family, we send you crazy kids off with our love and prayers - God is good to have let us share life with you these 6 months!

"Hey Trev!"   -Isaac exclaimed: every.time.he.saw.Trevor.


and this......of course they meant for it to say 2017....hahaahaha!

They deemed it as their 'first of many parenting fails' !

God will help them be super parents.

Seriously, folks.....Fall up here is spectacular....our guest room will be available should come visit!
