Home Sweet Home

We arrived home about 10 last night. God is so faithful! I’ll share more about the conference later.

Right now, I’m praising the Lord for many things to do.

Love,
Sarah

Notice all the bugs on the front of Uriah? It was a warm day yesterday, and there was a lot of bug activity. Our air conditioners even had trouble keeping up with the heat.

are righteous 
and very faithful.”

Photos from Thursday

We’re on our way home after a great weekend conference. Thursday’s drive went well. One exciting bit of news: Mary finished outlining the Bible! Outlining the Bible is part of her high school graduation requirements, and she’s been diligently working on it for quite some time.  It was awesome to see her complete it that afternoon. Good job, Mary!

I was anxious to see our first view of the mountains, and Mary was the spotter. I love seeing God’s creation!

We pulled into the church parking lot before 9. We were so grateful for the Lord’s protection as we drove. I’ll be sharing a conference report later!

Love,
Sarah

Hooray! Good job, Mary!

“O how love I thy law!
it is my meditation all the day.”

We’re On the Road!

We left home a little before noon. Right now, it’s a delightful, summer afternoon, with rain gently hitting the windshield. Inside, some are resting, some are working, and one is driving. Dinner is in the crockpot, and we’re so blessed to be on our way!

Speaking of blessed, we want to express our gratefulness to Christian Home Educators of Colorado for spreading the word about the Energize! conference. They are a great group and are there to support homeschoolers all year long.

The drive to Loveland is pretty easy, and we’ll get in tonight, Lord willing. I’m looking forward to seeing mountains again!

We’re excited to see what the Lord will do this weekend.

Love,
Sarah

A comment here on sweatshirts. Although we have had delightfully cool weather in Kansas for the past few days, it warmed up a bit today, and we're running the air conditioning in the bus. Sometimes, people get on the cool side, so thus the reason.

“But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.”
Psalms 13:5-6 

Packing Up!

Life has been such a whirlwind, and yes, we’re about to dash off on a short weekend trip. It’s been nine months since Uriah’s been conference bound. This trip will be to Loveland–which is north of Denver. The Lord has clearly given the new sessions for the Energize! conference this year.

Our family has been very involved with helping Nathan and Melanie and Company, and since Drew is home from the hospital, less help is needed. God’s timing is amazing!

I look forward to sharing what the Lord will do this weekend. We hope to see some of you there! Back to preparations!

Serving Jesus,
Sarah

Welcome Home, Andrew!

Yesterday, about 1 p.m., Drew joined his happy family at home. We praise the Lord for such a quick introduction to life for a preemie. He’s a little cutie!

“Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?
who can shew forth all his praise?
Blessed are they that keep judgment,
and he that doeth righteousness at all times.”

Seriously for Dads

dad-1I’m excited to introduce to you Seriously for Dads, a once-a-week e-mail by my dad (Steve) for the serious dad. Seriously’s theme is to encourage the serious dad in his role as Christian, husband, father, discipler, and provider.

Dad’s been writing monthly articles called the Dad’s Corners for twenty-four years and has felt the Lord’s leading to transition to shorter e-mails sent separately to dads. The feedback has been awesome! We still send out the Mom’s Corner monthly.

As always, our desire here at Titus2 is to encourage, equip, and exhort fellow believers in Christ Jesus. Seriously is just another avenue the Lord has led us down.

To sign up, see this link or the button below. We have a double-opt in list, which means after you input your address, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail and you must click on the link to confirm your address.

“But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.”
