I’m……. praying for a WHITE CHRISTmas Not for the beauty of frozen snowflakes transforming the earth- rather, I’m praying God’s glorious blanket of white righteousness covers our messy, dirty, broken lives. Jeff and I grew up in the same little town in Illinois. The candlelight service at midnight on Christmas Eve is one of our […]
When we celebrate Christmas- all of heaven and earth joins with us!
The Magic of Christmas is His presence- Jesus Christ
Special Needs- JOY to My World

~ a family knit together by God’s surprising treasures~
When Jeff and I married 32 years ago, our greatest desire was to serve God together & raise a family for Him!
Simplistic- yes? Simple- not so much! :)
Our life verses are
“Oh, magnify and praise the Lord with me, we will exalt His name together.” Ps. 34
“I have no greater joy than that my children are walking in His truth!”
I’m relieved our future is in His loving hands, for our “life between the trees” can be messy! There’s no way we could have anticipated the blessings and challenges we would face as individuals, a couple or a family! Our hope is we can share with you nuggets of wisdom we’ve picked up along the way, the beauty He’s given us for ashes and the power of His grace and mercy that knows no bounds.
God is our greatest Treasure.
