The School Bell Rings!

Another summer is over, well at least as far as being off of school, since summer in Florida lasts FOREVER!! On Monday we sent the kids off to start their 7th and 3rd grade year!


They look thrilled don't they?? Haha!!!


Christopher and Cailin here are our prayers for you this year:

We are praying that you will stay focused on learning. That you would be a light for Jesus, so that everywhere you go you would encourage those around you and be a part of the solution and not part of the problem. Praying that you will be leaders not followers and you would set good examples. We are also praying for good friends, friends that will build you up and not tear you down, friends that will last for a lifetime, and that you would be a great friend as well! That this year will be full of adventure and knowledge that will take you places!


It is going to be a GREAT year!!!

A New Chapter...

I hate change! But sometimes God uses it to stretch and bring us closer to him.

Over the past couple of weeks there have been some BIG (big for me anyway) changes in my life. I have left my part-time job of over 5 years and with that, because I worked for our church, we in turned left our church. We have spent a lot of time praying and seeking counsel over this decision, reasons for leaving aside, at the end of the day we know that God is leading us in a new direction. Not earth shattering change but enough that I feel unbalanced, no job and no church home. I have been reminded alot over these past two weeks of one of my favorite scripture verses - Jeremiah 29:11

I know God has a plan in all of this, we will pray and seek after Him for His leading and direction! So we begin a new chapter in our lives one of searching for a new church home, a place to belong, grow and serve. God is moving and I am excited to see what He has in store next!
