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 Battle

I hear and I forget.
I see and I remember.
I do and I understand.

(Joshua 5:13 - 6:27)

The City of Jericho.

One of the spies helped by Rahab.

Joshua and the Israelites led by the Priests.

Back at camp for the night - sleeping.

Repeated on days 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6.
(waiting for stragglers)

Then on day 7 - 7 times around the city in complete silence.  Until the trumpet (recorder) call and everyone screams.  God takes care of the rest!

... And the walls came tumbling down!

"... Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!" (Joshua 6:16b) Sometimes when we have a situation that seems to be more than we can handle, all we need to do is shout God's praises, and He'll fight our battles for us.  The battle might not be won overnight (for Joshua it took 7 days), after all "... If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31b)

Awesome way to bring the Bible to life for your children! My boys love Veggie Tales, and Trey knows the story of Jericho by heart!
