Urgent Need...

Since I've started blogging I've met some really wonderful people but at the top of that list would be The Rockstars! They have God's heart and passion for adoption and have blessed the lives of countless people over and over beginning with their own adoptive children. Courtney is the sweetest, most genuine person you'll meet. She has helped so many adoptive parents as they begin the process to adopt, while they are struggling to bring in their funding, and afterwards, dealing with the transitioning of the new child into the family. She has been our cheerleader in each of these steps and continues to be a sounding board for me as we navigate the waters of RAD.

Her family has been given an opportunity to bring another precious child into their family. They have been longing and praying for a child and are so excited that God knows the desires of their hearts and has this wonderful gift to give them. However, He is asking us to help. You see, as most of you know, adoption is expensive and most of us that adopt don't have that money just lying around. We just have the willing hearts and the call of God upon us. As the Body of Christ, we are all needed to do our parts. Some are asked to go, some are asked to pray, and some are asked to give. Courtney's family is asked to go as God leads and bring these children home. They are standing, waiting, expectant ready to do as God leads but they need the senders to do their part. Is that you?! Can you give even a tiny bit to give a child a home? A home that is OVERFLOWING with love. A home that is safe, secure and focused on Eternity. Please go here and read about their hope and then I beg you to be a part, a big part or just a small part....but a part of a  LIFE CHANGING ministry.

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…
