Five kids...each one it's own variety. Lots of laughter, joy and fun times. A life following Jesus...being a Jesus lover. Raising these incredible individuals and leading them towards their destiny. Stop on by, settle in for a bit and share bits and pieces of our life.

As promised, I would show you some photos from the other day, Just some intentional shots taken at Disney with ME in them. Big deal here. I am actually in the picture. Feels good.
Here is Esther and I waiting in line for "It's a Small World." Not my favorite ride, but always interesting. My little beauty looked so cute that day.
