A Courageous Weekend!

Lydia S.
 Courageous Video

You'll see Alex Kendrick at the beginning of this (from the movies Courageous, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof). He spoke to us at the dinner on Friday night and was SOOO inspiring.  Need to write about that too...he has a very interesting family background and stories about how his films made it into theaters nationwide.
Warning: At the very beginning it shows someone holding a very graphic abortion picture.  It's hard to see these pictures and I despise them myself, but think about it: If we were never shown the horrible pictures and films of what Hitler did to the Jews (and many others) it would be easy to be in denial of the reality of what happened during WWII.  Most of us are in denial about what is going on around us everywhere in our communities, just like the German people were, and just need a quick "reality check" once in a while to wake up.

Our Story Movie...So Far!

This is the chronological story of our engagement, marriage, births and moves over the past 21 years!  And I fit it all into two songs!! (Well, let's just say it's a bit condensed! :-)) 

It has been deeply moving to see how, in spite of our many shortcomings, the Lord has blessed us through the years as we have sought to trust Him with our lives.
(Update: We are sorry to announce that we lost the little one announced in this video at around 6-7 weeks gestation, though we didn't learn this until nearly 10 weeks...)
(Another Update: We are expecting a little boy in early February 2013!!!)
