- This started out as a blog about our domestic adoption. So all of the older posts are about that journey. It was an interesting one, and it led us to our son, Jacob. My dream since I was a little girl was typical of most little girls. I wanted to get married, and have children and be a stay at home Mom. Although, not a very popular choice for a profession now a day, I find it very rewarding. As a matter of fact, every day is an adventure! I've been told personally that the stay at home Mom profession isn't 'work', but spend a day with me and you'll see just how much 'work' it is!!! It's blessed work!

Four States Couple's Retreat 2012
I was SO excited to get to go to this retreat this year. My in-laws have invited us the last two years to go, but something always came up and we couldn't. However, this year as we have joined a new Church, and they go to the retreat every year. We made our plans. It was only the Pastor & wife, our friends, and us that went and we had such a good time in the van on the way down fellowshipping. We stayed in the Hilton on the Landing in Branson and the retreat was in the convention center right next door. There was a lot of awesome preaching Friday afternoon and Saturday. Bro. Bill Rice III from the Bill Rice Ranch was the main speaker. He was so good! He has such a way of just making the Bible plain! His main point was that we live our lives without faith and that makes God a liar! It was very convicting! He spoke of the marriage relationship and parenting. It was the kind of stuff you may have a hard time swallowing but that you need to hear! We got to go out with friends for dinner that night and got to fellowship some more. It was all and all a fantastic weekend, one that I wish didn't have to end so soon. I'm hoping we get to go to the one next year. There might already be some scheduling conflicts, but if we can work it out...we will certainly be going! SO important to go to these kinds of things and be encouraged by the Word of God and by the fellowship of the saints. Also, it was great to spend some quality time with the Hubby! =)
