We’re … HOME!

After an incredibly fast-paced, record-breaking, 34-minute pack up last night, we were on the bus and ready to drive. Mom and Anna put a quick dinner together of chili cheese dip (see Moody Book #1 for the recipe), which was a delicious treat.

Mile after mile ticked away as we drove. Dad and John switched places about 11 pm, and at 2 am, we stopped because of a line of thunderstorms ahead. For some in the family, sleep comes easily in the bus while it’s moving, but others simply doze. When the bus stopped moving, though, everyone did sleep. At 6:45, we began the rest of the drive and pulled into our driveway about 8:20. We quickly prepared for church. What a delight it was to make it back in time for worship.

We had a special lunch with the family (thanks Anna Marie and Christopher!), and afterward most took naps.

I look forward to sharing with you about the Expo and how the Lord blessed. It was truly exciting!

Rejoicing in Jesus,



By the way, Christopher and Anna Marie are redoing their dining rooms walls.
The babies turned to watch Christopher play the harmonica.


“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting
to everlasting upon them that fear him,
and his righteousness unto children’s children”
Psalms 103:17

  1. Glad you made it home safe , looking forward hear about conference and looking forward to hear about release dates of new books

  2. Welcome Home! 🙂 So thankful you all made it back safely and were even able to attend Church. Love all these photos, and how special the entire family had lunch together! 🙂
    Love, Mrs. Patti

  3. Glad you made it back safely. I like the new look in Christopher and Anna’s dining room.

  4. I’m glad you all made it home safely and am hoping that you made it through the tornadoes and storms with no damage.
    Although I do not comment on every post, I read every one of them and pray for your family frequently.
    I don’t know exactly how many years I’ve been visiting your site and buying your books, but it’s probably been at least 12 or 13.
    Your family’s ministry has had a great impact on mine. Our youngest three children were blessed to us after a reversal–which took place after reading your own story.
    Thank you for allowing your lives to be used by the Lord. May He continue to bless you as you blessed so many others!

  5. Glad you all made it home safely and what a blessing to be able to have made it in time for church and a meal prepared.


  6. So glad you guys made it home. I know KS had some of the same storms we did, so I am glad you made it safely. Please say a prayer for those affected just south of me. I have friends who have lost their homes, and the Oklahoma Standard is well at work through prayer, donations, search and rescue/recovery, and the spirit of community.
    We have been grieving and praying for those affected.

  7. Hello,

    I was looking back through some older posts and wondered if I could find out any information on the pattern Anna Marie used to make her dress in this post (May 19, 2013). There’s no rush and if it’s too much trouble, that’s fine…I just thought I’d ask. 🙂 Thank you and God bless!
    Some girls were getting a little restless so Mary offered that they might draw together.
