Face-to-Face

Some are more in love with their opinion about issues and communicating to those they will rarely see or never meet, than actually forming in-person relationships that will confront any hidden hypocrisy. Trust me. I know. I did it for a long time and still struggle with it.

Merry Chraaaaastmas sweet friends and family (with mouths wide open)!  This was the one pose that caught their attention long enough for me to snap a few pictures with all of them looking my way.  What a gift they are to me.  They keep me ever on my toes.  I pray that you and your loved ones are well this season and that you have amazing memories to share with those around you for years to come.  But first and foremost may we remember the Messiah’s life, death and resurrection, fixing our hope on His return where all things will be made...

My Wife

Posted by on 6:37 am in family, Holy Spirit, marriage, parenting, pregnancy, Richee | 2 comments

I have been married to Sarah Grace Parks for 11 years and 8 months now. Her birthday is today. I’ve had the incredible honor of walking side-by-side with her for a little under a third of her life and can’t wait for the rest. My wife is truly my best friend and it is literally impossible to clearly communicate all that she means to me after the past years. The last several have been the toughest our marriage has ever faced but also the sweetest. Somewhere in 2009 we finally began to bridge the gap in our hearts and lives between...

Plato, Time and Eternity

I know. I know. It’s been almost a year since I blogged. What’s happened to me? Short answer: I’ve been building other peoples’ websites and blogs (www.richeeparks.com), including a brand new Daniel Training Network website. Long story short, the Lord has had my focus elsewhere over the last year even though I have longed to blog it up so many times. With that out of the way, I wanted to reengage my blog audience with an edited video of my good friend John Harrigan addressing the subjects of Plato, time and eternity....

During our short few months in Kansas City, Grandma and Grandpa Parks practically moved to KS for two months.  Several things happened while we were there.  Zion was born, Arden had his burst appendix removed, I had a birthday and also got mastitis with a 104 degree temperature.  We wouldn’t trade our time in KC for anything.  We had such a wonderful time with old friends, new friends and of course our family.  I was so overwhelmed by the love we received while in KC.  Thank you so much to all of those who loved on us in so many ways. ...

Can I Play Too? by Mo Willems

Posted by on 9:21 pm in Children's Books, family, Grace | 0 comments

I read this book to my kids for the first time just the other night.  I laughed so hard I cried.   It could have just been that I was tired or the crazy day that I had,  but if you are in the mood this book might have the same impact on you and your kids.  The main characters are Gerald (and elephant) and Piggie (…a pig).  Mo Willems has a lot of fun with these two characters.  He has quite a few books, but my top two favorites so far are Can I Play Too and I Broke My Truck!  Check em’ out and tell me what you think.    ...

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin

Posted by on 8:27 pm in Children's Books, Grace | 0 comments

I go to the library with my kids (ages 2, 5 and sometimes my 6 month old) at least once a week.  My heart is pretty sensitive to the types of books my children are exposed to. We each have different levels of sensitivity, some have more strict views than mine and others could care less, that’s your prerogative-between you and Jesus.  :-) Each library is different.  And each storyteller is has their own style.  I happen to really love the girl who leads the Friday story time at our library.  She’s engaging, imaginative, creative...

Strong Love

Posted by on 9:56 pm in family, Grace | 0 comments

This afternoon I had two out of three of my children napping and I decided I would take advantage of the silence no matter how long it lasted.  I grabbed my journal and my iTouch and sat on my favorite couch…my only couch.                   One of my favorite albums to listen to is Strong Love by John Thurlow.  Today I just listened to #6 Fountains over and over again.               The Lord used the lyrics to this song to really encourage me.  John sings,...

My Girl

Eliana Joy will turn two on Sunday, October 7th.  We plan to have the family over to celebrate her day.  It will have a Hawiian theme, only there wont be any pit with a pig in it.  But there will be lots of fun, laughter and good food.               When I first learned that I was to have a little girl, I was excited and a little nervous.  Both of these feelings I have found were legit. From the moment she wakes, to the moment before bedtime, there is constant emotion, laughter, kisses, snuggles…oh and...

Zion Reign

I still have yet to finish my little blog series but had to interrupt it to blog about the precious new addition to our family.  I cannot rave enough about my wife. I saw her do the most incredible thing that I will ever experience with her in my life. This labor and delivery was so radically different than our other two children and I wasn’t pushed to the side by lots of nurses and doctors during the process and/or did not have the opportunity to sit passively by while she labored medicated. That had been our experiences with the other...
