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

Week #2: Exciting Progress!

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this project. Families continue to join, and that’s awesome. If you’ve been thinking about it, you still can. 🙂

Christmas Comes to Sunflower is currently in the editing stage, and I’m loving it. It’s due to go to our copyeditor the day before Thanksgiving. I positively can’t wait to share it with all who complete the project!

One family had to make two entries to sign up because there were so many of them: fifteen in fact, all but the youngest (even the dad and mom are in on it)! They were very kind to give me permission to share their picture with you all.


Here are some memorizing hints from one of our readers:

  • Write on small cards-3×5 index cut in half or blank business cards are good.
  • Place in prominent place in house, i.e. over kitchen sink or in bathroom.
  • Write out entire verse each morning until learned.
  • Look at just the reference and say the verse out loud.
  • Cover card with another card and uncover only the portion you have said to be sure it is done from memory.


So, y’all! Stay on board! Keep memorizing to God’s glory!

Joyfully Serving Jesus,

“I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.” 
Psalms 119:113

Preparing to Leave!

Trip preparations have been in high gear today! We each had things to do from running errands, to packing (okay, everyone had that), food prep, music practice, details to wrap up, and yes, more packing. Everyone pitches in to get things done.

We look forward to seeing some of you in Belleville (St. Louis area) tomorrow night and Saturday. Please join us in prayer!

Joyfully His,





“Return unto thy rest, O my soul;
for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.”
Psalms 116:7
