Hi everyone! How is it already March 19th? 

Here's an attempt to catch y'all (and myself) up to speed with what's been happening at this house the last several weeks.  And yes, they all involve pictures of Scout. What's not to love?

The last week in February, we were given the opportunity to participate in a mission trip with our church to Barahona, Dominican Republic. The trip so surpassed my expectations, that I have had a pretty hard time articulating to friends and family just what it meant to me.

Hey Monday. Hey March.

Hi everyone!

Welllllll, February really ran past us and now March is trying to do the same. 

From travels, to long work hours, to a mission trip, to 80-degree days followed by ice days, and now to the end of week-long sickness....we are more than a little ready for Springtime. The days have been GOOD, but I would be ok with them being longer and warmer. ;)

I can't wait to share with you what all has been happening, and what all I have been learning. For now though, I just had to get on this space and share this video and some quick words.

I've been blown away with the creativity of people in the ministry lately, and how the Lord has been using those creatives to speak truth and life in to my heart. Here's a spotlight on two specifically:


You father the orphan
your kindness makes us whole
You shoulder our weakness
and your strength becomes our own
You're making me like you
clothing me in white
Bringing beauty from ashes
for you will have you bride
Free of all her guilt
and rid of all her shame
And known by her true name
and it's why I sing
Your praise will ever be on my lips
ever be on my lips.
