I was greatly encouraged by this little 78 page book. Some of the highlights to me were: Pray for people as if you were going to die for them. Pray before temptation hits so that your spirit is enjoying fellowship with the Lord and you have God’s perspective of sin when it presents itself. “Prayer […]
Events, vacations, birthdays, testimonies, celebrations; anything you can think of that a family has done together.
This book has helped me have the right focus through our family’s latest journey learning how to best care for Grandma. This journey has definitely taken “all hands on deck” and given us a whole new appreciation for each other. In her conclusion, after many encouraging words and helpful tips, Washburn writes, “Never doubt the […]
Unless you happen to be privileged enough to live very far north or very far south, Christmastime isn’t exactly a snowy time of year. While the air still holds a feeling of Christmas, the majority of us hear the rhythm of rain more than the crunch of snow when it’s Christmastime in the city. And […]
With the choice of presidential candidates before us tomorrow, none of which are leaders I would have chosen to be in authority over me, I am perplexed with the question of what to do.

James and Jonathan are using the autumn colors as an opportunity to compile photography training videos. We are in the NC highlands around Grandfather Mountain and it is awesome to be here with them and enjoy the sights myself 🙂 The photographic opportunities have been outstanding.
There’s no better time of year for a hike than the cool and clear days of October! That is, if you can find the time to go out and enjoy it… On Monday there was a lot of work to be done. Esther, Jonathan, David and I had arrived at the Wilkes’ farm a day […]
Our encounter with the ark was a powerful testimony of God’s mercy and ability to save His creation. One small example was how polar bears survived on the ark. First, they do not need to live in a cold climate. Many warm weather zoos house polar bears. Second polar bears are members of the bear […]
On Sunday, Dad gave the morning message at a church in Berkeley Springs WV! Afterwards, we stopped at an overlook to take in the view and give Jonathan an opportunity to fly his drone in a new spot. We think we could see three states from that overlook: West Virginia of course, Maryland across the […]
