Because Every Mother Matters...

I am honored to know Steffany. She has blessed many people with her generous heart and spirit and continues to stretch and grow for God in so many ways. I can't say enough positive things about this woman, her family and her endless pursuit to better the world, one person at a time. Will you join her? Can you help? Because...Every Mother Matters!!


BEMM has their first big project. A maternity clinic in the country I love..Ethiopia.Our goal is to raise at least 5k by Mother's Day...That would be a quarter to our goal. My marketing plan?
I have no plan....It is simple. We need money. The mothers who are biting off their babies umbilical chords need money. Without money Gedese's baby Christiana would be dead..She would be dead....Even with money though..it takes action. A simple act of kindness. To give without expecting anything in return. Sometimes we don't have money..but we all have something to give. Our voice. Our love. Our heart. Please help me spread the word of BEMM.




We have no trinkets to sell.

 We have nothing that you can purchase to give to your mothers or women of importance in your life on Mother's Day.
 All we have is a vision. 
A vision of a holistic maternity and infant development center to be built half way around the world...in a village probably not big enough to be on a map.
 Because- it is not okay that 1 in 11 women in E.Africa dies due to pregnancy related causes. 
What do we need? 
Simply-We need money. 
What can we offer this Mother's Day?
 Hope.
 And the assurance that 100% of your donations go towards building the clinic.
 There are 3 fridays left until Mother's day. 
We are asking 3 things. 
1. Every friday donate $10 that is a total of $30.
 2. On fri. make this your status and provide a link or address to donate. 
3.Please let your mom, your friend, your wife, your daughter know that THEY MATTER!

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…
