2015 Has Begun!

Ice skating!

Here are a few of my recent favorite verses along with a few pictures of January in full swing! Rev. 3:2 "Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found they works perfect before God." Don’t give up, Esther, it’s not complete! 2 Cor. 4:17 "For […]

Fall Blessings

I am so grateful for the incredible family times the Lord has blessed me with! Taking Sauntina and Marilee out for walks, making pickles with the bounty of cucumbers from our garden, starting up the bell choir and visiting Graue Mill have all been highlights over the past month.

Words of Wisdom

The family came to visit!

I was encouraged recently by Tom Harmon’s sermon series. Here are some of my favorite quotes: “We desperately need a high view of God.” The people you count on the most will let you down. Where would I go, but to the Lord?” “Time is just one grain of sand on the seashore of eternity.” […]

Perspective Adjustment

Kendalyn took me out to Egg Harbor! Special times!

Last weekend a few of us had a grand excursion out visiting Cantigny Park! The beautifully designed flower beds and fountains amazed us. The tour of the McCormick mansion made us very grateful for the conveniences of our time in history. The museum centering around the 1st Infantry Division gave us a whole new appreciation […]


The evening at Steak 'n' Shake

What came to mind when you read that title? Friday night at Stake’n Shake, Gabe told us this quote by Tozer: “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” Without a right view of God, our doctrine is flawed and we don’t know how to live.

Barbara’s Wedding!


Wow, what a joy to be part of the wedding of Barbara Sutton and Michael Hinson this weekend! I’m praising the Lord for their godly example of letting the Lord guide their relationship, seeking the blessing and counsel of their parents and vowing “till death do us part”. It will be exciting to see how […]

One Nation

Here are some pictures from the delightful time I’ve had visiting family and friends earlier this month. At the moment I am actually in the air flying to Montana for Barbara Sutton’s wedding! Looking out my window and down at the clouds while I read has really brought to life this flight illustration I’m reading […]

Spreading the Word about Lenspirations!

A scenic overlook on the way

 James and I had a great time at the HEAV Convention! Last week at the Family Conference in Nashville we were challenged to be more specific in our prayer life. So this week our specific request for this convention was that we would be able to make good connections with other photographers. That prayer has […]

Looking Unto Jesus!

The Duggars singing for the Lord!

This was the encouraging theme of the 2014 Family Conference. I appreciated the conference on a whole new level this year since I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to go. Not only was it a fabulous time with the family, reunion with  friends, time to meet new friends and a chance to […]

Leadership 101–John C. Maxwell

Sauntina's dolphin birthday party :)

Daniel, Jonathan and I are traveling with a great group to Nashville for the family conference! On the way we are listening to John C. Maxwell’s Leadership 101 – What Every Leader Needs to Know. It was very practical and thought-provoking! Here are some things that stood out to me: 1. The first person you […]
