A Daddy's Love...


Sean is the best daddy in the universe! Just ask our kids, they will agree. When Sean comes home from work, watch out, because if you are in the way you will be tackled by the kids as they run to greet daddy and give him hugs and kisses! They just love being with him and it’s so fun to see him playing and interacting with them.



As we watched Kyalynn's homecoming video the other night I was again reminded of God's heart for us by seeing my husband's emotions when meeting our daughter for the first time. God's love for us is not contingent on what we can do for Him or how good we are. (Hallelujah!) He loves us because He is love. He can't wait until we come to Him and He can finally hold us. I'm sure He feels the same sort of emotions Sean did....relief, boundless love, fierce protectiveness, and pure joy!

As I mentioned before, Sean had many fears about loving "someone else's child" but when he laid eyes on our precious, new daughter that all changed...immediately. His heart knew no limits on love for his little girl and he knew she was his daughter. Because Sean gave Kyalynn love she now loves in return...deeply.


I could never put into words what this does for my mommy heart but more importantly, for my respect and admiration for this man!


He really is amazing! He teaches our kids character, integrity, honesty, and godliness by his example. Sean came from a broken home but you could never tell this as you watch him loving on his kids. Like I said, he’s the best daddy in the universe!!!

Thank you Father God for daddies who model you and your love to their children. What a wonderful way for our children to know Your character and want to know You personally. Amen.

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
