John and I are so excited that you are checking out our site. We created this as a way for people to get to
know us a little more at their own convenience. At this time we are raising support to be able to report to

Our Biggest (yet littlest in size) Ministry Focus

Theoden is 14 months old and is growing by leaps and bounds. I am amazed at how quickly he's catching on to things now. It's made me keenly aware of the need to be mindful of the words that I say, facial expressions I make, and even my physical actions. God has given Theoden to us for a time and we are given the incredible task of raising him to be a man who loves God.

We are striving to be on campus and reach college students for eternity, but our biggest ministry focus is and will remain the one that's hanging onto my legs babbling "mama". Please continue to pray for us as we seek to parent Theoden in a way that glorifies God. We're starting to navigate the waters of discipline as Theoden begins to have inklings of what he should and should not do. Parenting doesn't come with a guide book, though we have the best Guide and the most helpful Book for instructing us day by day in each situation.

If you would take a moment and pray one of these for Theoden it would bless our family greatly:

Monday: Ask God to place a protective, solid hedge around your children so that Satan cannot reach in and lead them into temptation and so they will be safe from harm (2 Thessalonians 3:3; Psalm 33:20).
Tuesday: Pray that your children would use godly wisdom in selecting friends and peers that will make a positive difference in their lives. Ask God to give each child a discernment of people as well as knowing the difference between right and wrong (Proverbs 1:10; 18:24; Deuteronomy 13:6,8).
Wednesday: Pray that your children would stay pure in their thoughts and deeds (Psalm 24:4-5; Job 17:9).
Thursday: Pray that they will be caught if they wander into cheating, lies, or mischief (Hebrews 13:18-19).

Friday: Pray they will be alert and thinking clearly as they attend school and extra curricular activities and as they take exams. Ask God to help them be motivated to do the best they are capable of doing (Colossians 3:17; 1 Corinthians 10:31).
Saturday: Pray for the spouse each child will marry someday. Ask that they will come from godly homes and have an appetite to live the spiritual truth they've learned. Pray also that their goals and purpose will be the same as your own children and their future homes would be godly (Deuteronomy 5:29).
Sunday: Ask God to help them live their lives for Him and that He will use them as a testimony and witness for His glory. Pray that they'll be grown to full spiritual maturity (Psalms 78:1-8, 103:17-18; Isaiah 54:13; Ephesians 3:20-21).
Do not leave your children unprotected-that is, vulnerable to Satan's attack. The greatest shield of protection we as parents can provide for our children is prayer. It's never too late to start (1 Samuel 12:23; James 5:16; Colossians 4:2).
