Thankful for God's Grace

Dad-with-girls
As our family spent a wonderful Thanksgiving Day together, we kept reflecting on the grace and mercy that the Lord has bestowed on us over the years.

Horseback Riding in McCall

Young-cowboys-thumbnail
Our family was so excited to go to beautiful McCall two times in one month. Our first visit in early July was so fun! We were able to ride wave runners at Payette Lake with my husband’s family. What a blast! Riding choppy waves for a few hours was so exhilarating and memorable for the whole family. After that wonderful time, we never imagined that we would be returning so quickly.

What are you doing in Idaho? (A short note from my husband)

(This entry was written by my husband)
-----------------------
For those who are close to our family, you know how much God has been working on my heart and mind during the last few years in particular. I believe it has been in this time that great clarity concerning my life and family has come to us. However, it has been somewhat difficult to explain to people who don't understand the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and theological journey I have been on during the last 5 years. Read More...
