Little Fingers, Little Toes


It doesn't ever get old! Getting to meet a tiny human being for the first time is one of the most precious moments in life and we absolutely love each and every one.


So far Dad, Mom and Charissa are the only ones that have made it down to Kansas to meet Justice, but the rest of us are enjoying pictures and videos until we can make it down too.


It is amazing how the small they come and how quickly they take up so much room in your heart.


"The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace."
Psalms 29:11

Stephen



Happy Birthday Stephen!


This last year his time has been mainly split between work and time with family! Building relationships has always been important to him and we absolutely love the random adventures that we have together!! He always has an available listening ear or an applicable scripture ready which makes for some wonderful late night conversations.



Stephen and Matthias are working towards taking over the family business which has put a lot of extra responsibilities on his plate, but it is exciting to see what God is doing through that. He also has his pilots license and loves going up when he can!


He still travels with our family for the music ministry and we are so grateful for all of his help! Whether it's working up music, driving the bus, setting up equipment or finding new songs.



I could go on about him, but let's just say that God's grace is so evident in his life and he is a pretty awesome human being. We are so very blessed to have him in our family!!!


We love you Stephen!!!

4th of July


Faith, Family, Fireworks, Freedom... and cupcakes! 
It seems that the weeks surrounding the Fourth end up being packed full and fly by faster than we can keep track of them, but it is always a special time!


If you've followed our blog for awhile you will know that the Fourth of July is a big deal in our hometown of Seward, Nebraska! All morning long there are special events and competitions that take place and people travel from all over to enjoy the festivities. With several pilots in our family, the airshow tends to be a highlight each year. (who doesn't enjoy seeing plane land on a suburban?!)


One of the best parts of the Fourth of July is having family come into town. This year Andrew, Kori & Wyatt were in town for 10 whole days!!! As well as Ryan & Ruth, Josiah & Abi and Matthias & Michelle. We absolutely loved it!!



We figured out that it was 22 years ago that they asked us to sing for the first time during the celebration. It was something we'd never really done before! God used that concert to open up the doors for us to travel all over the U.S. and 45 states later all we can do is look back and say "what a mighty God we serve!" 



Happy Independence Day!!

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."

Moments of Happiness


There is enough happening right now that I wanted to share these pictures before they are outdated. I won't really caption them because they are mainly just random smiles and happy moments from our camping trip that I thought you might enjoy seeing too.




















"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed,
because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22&23

Water Fun



Everyone knows you can't go to a lake without going swimming. Especially when it's 90 degrees out!!! The water was so perfect!! We took hundreds of pictures of all the tubing, flying in the air, skiing and swimming that happened. I tried to pick just a few to share with y'all!



Dad has become quite an expert in driving the boat and it is certainly a feat to be able to stay on the tube when he is at the wheel.

Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You."
