Our family had the amazing opportunity last night to go and support an incredible movie, Fireproof! Made by Sherwood Pictures (who also created Flywheel and Facing the Giants), this movie is for the entire family. It tells the story of a struggling couple who are find themselves on the brink of divorce - and how God changed their life and their marriage. It gives a realistic view on marriage and it shares the plan of salvation. It also stars Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains, Left Behind) - who does an amazing job!

This is a must-see - especially for all Christians! We need to make sure that we support this Christian film - they are rare these days!

back home......

On Friday, we returned home from Goodland, Kansas. We had such a wonderful week! The services went very well, and we trust that all that were in attendance were ministered to in some way.
Our entire family got to go on this revival, which is a rarity these days. We had such a good time and made many memories: being serenaded at Carlos O'Kelly's by an alumni band from the University of hem on the bottom of the my dress pant leg coming undone only 15 minutes before church started........accidentally choosing a Chinese restaurant (3 in our family dislikes Chinese, myself included)............Nikki's blizzard from Dairy Queen dripping all over the place in the van....just to name a few!

Packing today, leaving tomorrow

Tomorrow, our family will be on our way to Goodland, Kansas - which, in case any of you are wondering, is near the Colorado border. We are eager to get there and begin our week of spiritual renewal - please pray along with us that God's anointing will be on the services and that those in attendance will be challenged and changed!
Because we are leaving tomorrow morning, today has been crazy with packing, cleaning, and last minute details! My day, in particular, has been filled with laundry, packing, PowerPoint for the services, laundry, dishes, general pick-up, laundry......did I mention that I have done a ton of laundry today? Oh, there goes the buzzer on the washing machine. Just one moment.
All right, where was I? Oh, anyways, it's been a crazy day. But we've accomplished much and will be ready to leave tomorrow!

In case any of you get bored while I'm gone, feel free to browse back through some of my archives! It will help dull the pain of missing me! :-) Oh, and does anybody have any idea as to how to get spaces for paragraphs? I'm having some difficulty with that.
