Dear Ones:

14 years ago today a dream came true for me. I became a mother. God blessed me with a delightful gift in my son Elijah. Yesterday he left on his first out of country missions trip to Nicaragua. I have to tell you I missed him before he even left. I am very excited though to see how the Father is going to work in and through his life because of this opportunity and experience. It is just a miracle that he was even able to go. It was a financial impossibility for our family. Elijah worked very hard mowing lawns, and any other odd job that would come along to help pay for his trip. He was also greatly blessed by both known and unknown givers to his trip. I can't wait to share when he gets back.

Happy Birthday my sweet son. I love you much and He loves you MORE!


  1. I can't imagine how it feels watching your teenage (!!) son leave to go on his first mission trip. My heart is thumping I'm so proud of him, you must be beside yourself. :) I have some old pictures of Jesse doing Children's Church when he first came to LIFE - and Elijah and Noah are on the front row, and they're just little tykes, probably about 3 & 5. So hard to believe that he's a teenager and so precious that he is serving God!! Love you guys!

  2. I love you back Leah. I would love to see that picture sometime.

  3. This is just awesome. My 13 yr old wants to do this also but out of the country makes me go....eeeek,scary!!!


"As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord."
