I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

The B-I-B-L-E

Gram recently gave Alex his very first Bible, as a belated 4th birthday gift. He was SO excited! It has lots of pictures inside, and a picture of Jesus hanging out with kids on the front, and MAPS (his favorite part). Before we left for church the next morning, he was really concerned that we'd forget to take it. Each week since it's been the same: "Don't forget MY Bible, Mommy!" "I need my money for Jesus, but my Bible too!" How cute that he's so excited about this. I pray he always has this same desire to use his Bible. Of course he's just looking at pictures at this age, but it's still good practice for HIM to tell US the Bible stories associated with them - or to learn if they're new stories.

It's MY OWN Bible?!?
"...and God made the bad lions not eat him...""Daddy, the map says you go left first.
But make sure you don't go in the water,
or you'll have to swim!"
