Titus2 Planning Day

Saturday, February 1st, we did something very unusual. We spent a day together to seek the Lord, brainstorm, and plan Titus2’s direction for this year. The results? Amazing! God so blessed. One of the most exciting things we came away with was new direction for conferences. This year’s conference is called Energize! We have brand new sessions and a new format as well. We can’t wait to share as that unfolds.

It was a special time of talking together as a family and uniting eight opinions!


We set up the projector and used it as our notes whiteboard, with Dad typing in ideas as we had them. It helped to visualize what we discussed.
We had snacks at lunch (since we’d had a big breakfast), and then Dad took us out to eat late afternoon. Have to keep those creative juices flowing!


“The works of the LORD are great,
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.”
Psalms 111:2

Snow in Leavenworth

Good afternoon from a beautiful, snow-covered Kansas.

We’ve had an interesting winter with temperatures in the 50’s on my birthday, a few days of howling winds that made us feel like we were in Canada, and lots of snow and frigid temperatures. I know what we term as “a lot of snow” is only relative. I think people in New England and Alaska might chuckle. Either way, we are thankful for moisture that the roughly 9.5 inches of snow brings!

This particular snow is very powdery, and the ice crystals sparkle and glitter. For those who are trusting in Jesus as their Savior, what a marvel it is that He has washed our sins whiter than snow.

Enjoy a winter day! Maybe grab a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, or tea.


Last night, the snow was so pretty as it fell.

wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

Baby Maxwell Update

I know there are some who are interested in a baby update. Anna Marie is at 38 weeks. Since she was two weeks late with Joshua, it’s possible this will be a March baby. Whatever the timing, Anna Marie is perfectly content waiting. The baby has been active, and we’re looking forward to meeting him/her. Christopher and Anna Marie are grateful for your prayers as they continue in the parenting journey.

We can’t wait to share the news when the baby is born.

Joyfully His,

Anna Marie
