This blog is a chance for us to tell our story and shine the light on the God who wrote it.

It is also a place for me to bring into the spotlight the millions of orphans around the world who are waiting for the Body of Christ to fulfill God's command to "care for orphans and widows in their distress" (James 1:27)

Soli deo Gloria... (All Glory to God Alone).


Son of Laughter

The boy who made me a mom ... he turned nine this month. I kept thinking- "That's halfway to eighteen! How can that be?" But here he is, nine years old. He is all gift and I am so grateful for our "son of laughter". I giggle to remember how we joked after naming Isaac and Zoe and marvelling at how they 'fit' their names. (Isaac means "filled with laughter" or "son of laughter", and no one is better at laughing at my silliness than sweet Isaac.) We began to wonder if there was something prophetic to this naming thing after the first two fulfilled their names so well... So we joked that the next would be named "Obedience". Hey, a parent's got to try...
It has been a joy watching this boy grow more and more into the person God's created him to be. Isaac is smart, kind, introspective, full of questions, and fun. He enjoys riding his bike, video games, being outdoors, reading, and all things military.
Thanking God for you this month, Isaac!


  1. Happy Birthday Isaac! I can't believe you're 9. Wow.
