How Great is our God

We have had an amazing week of spending time with our awesome God. Our church decided to take a week to really press into God and sanctify ourselves. It began each day for me and John when he felt well at 6am with prayer at the church outside. What a wonderful way to start a day. We ended with communion and worship each evening. I can honestly now understand churches that do this 24/7. God met with us every time, both in the morning and in the evening. There were such powerful times of deep intimacy with God. Truly a wonderful time. I can honestly say that I hate to see it end.

I have this music video for you to enjoy.

How time goes by

It has been such a busy couple of weeks that I totally forgot to put anything up on our blog. Lets see where to begin.

All has been going well. Each day we surrender to God and thank Him for His provision. He is so good to us. Chris is finishing his two week stint at CBCC. He is doing well. We just pray that He is feeling awesome next week for our trip to Florida for the Life conference.

Speaking of Life, we are very excited to be going with some of the youth from our youth group to a huge conference in Florida. There will be thousands of Youth from around the USA and world. We went 3 years ago in Arizona, and it was a blast. John and I get the chance to pretend we are youth again. So we leave on Monday the 2nd and return on the 10th. If you can pray for the trip, and especially that the youth would have a life changing encounter with God.

John and Chris will have just finished a round of treatment, but we are trusting God to bring health and that they will feel really great for the trip. The enemy will not discourage us! We will be doing a couple of extra activities also like Sea World, Universal Studios and Discovery Cove which is swimming with dolphins. So it will be fun week, we are really looking forward to just having fun.

Campaign for Real Beauty

I was "surfing the net" when I came across this clip from Dove. I encourage you to take a minute to watch it. It is sad how we, women, have been convinced of what beauty is by the world and not by God. God makes no mistakes and I have to give a big thanks to Dove for breaking ranks and making the push for real beauty which is God's beauty.

Chris in the News

If you were not able to catch this on the news here is a clip of a report they ran on Chris. Chris walked into Stockdale High to get his diploma and a news team had asked if they could do a report on him after seeing the students give him a standing ovation when he received his diploma. As you can tell, he was very tired. But God was glorified as he was able to share a bit of his faith.


Well we got through the last week with Chris and John having Chemotherapy. It was a rough week for Chris, but praise God, He is feeling pretty good today. John is teaching tomorrow at our church. We are excited to see how God takes what He has put on John's heart and brings His revelation to His people. He will be teaching from Acts 12 and believing God.
