COUNTDOWN to CELEBRATE. “Mom! Only 48 days until I get married!” Moriah and Jonny- EXCITED “Nehemiah will be 1 […]
Last Friday and Saturday I was blessed to go to the Believe– Woman of Faith Conference in Kansas City with 7000 other Christian women! But by far the biggest blessing was that all three daughters attended with me.

Is there anything more thrilling than God Authoring a Love Story? Our daughter, Moriah, just got engaged!

Did you know- God is taking deep breaths- smelling our lives!
When we serve others- our fragrance is perfume to Him.
When we love with His love- He breathes deeply, rejoicing in the zesty savor of our lives!
Our prayers- our praise- our worship- our devotion to Him- is something He delights, revels in, sings and rejoices over.

While Sarah was […]Bethany, celebrate, children, commemorate, encouragement, love, Moriah, thankfulness, treasure
We were on Family vacation in Colorado Springs and we were sneaking up to gaze and photograph a herd of big horn sheep. I turned to say something to Moriah, and she was down on her knees, taking pictures of a bent over sunflower. I wondered what she “saw” in a flower basically past its […]Moriah, photography, Worship
My Dad loves to tell a story when he was a little boy, people hung their laundry outside on a clothesline to dry. Everyone would help bring in the sheets and clothes. At Thanksgiving time, he was surprised to hear them singing a Thanksgiving hymn that talked about just that! Now he knows the words are […]harvest, Moriah
This picture reminds me of going to my Grandma’s house! I loved getting her old watering can out, pumping water from the now obsolete water pumps, and watering her flowers; hollyhocks, lily of the valley, gladolias, peonies…. Those times remind me of Simpler days.Moriah, simplicity
