My first post recognized the gracious process of the Lord to humble my pride-filled heart over time through merely one example and facet of life (parenting), although I could have shared many others. The second post highlighted the transition that our lives made as God humbled us and we began to follow the Spirit’s leadership even into uncomfortable places. I wanted this third post to sum it up with our...

Road To Redemption Part 2: Helpful Hardship

Posted by on 8:01 pm in Resurrection, Richee | 1 comment

To read Part 1 (Parent Trap), click here. To read Part 3 (Dragging The Cross), click here. Before leaving Bethany International in April of 2011, Grace and I felt as though we had grown significantly in our walk with the Lord.  However, the Lord is gracious to us as His children and leaves no stone in our hearts unturned if we allow Him. Why? Because I believe the Lord knows that the fullness of our salvation has yet to be realized until our bodies are clothed in light/glory and the resurrected Messiah, Jesus, is literally sitting on a throne...

Road To Redemption Part 1: Parent Trap

Posted by on 3:41 am in family, Humility, marriage, parenting, Pharisee, pregnancy, repentance, Restoration, Richee, Sin | 0 comments

First off, no baby #3 yet but contractions have been pretty intense over the last day or so. Less sleep, here I come! There hasn’t been much time for the blogosphere these days due to constant transition, being somewhat homeless for 5 weeks, struggling to get health insurance so we can get into the doctor for the first time, realizing that our due date was a month off and we were due a month earlier (!!), and a plethora of other circumstances that have made life a little less than accommodating for my blog. But I definitely wanted to try and...

Smoking Or Non

Smoking Or Non

Our family has been in transition for around 2 weeks now. Really we have been in constant transition for the last 9 months or longer but who’s keeping track? Seriously though, the last few weeks have been filled with sleeping in basements (thank you to those who made a place for us in this time), filling our truck with everything we own…again and being humbled once again in how we don’t have it all together. :) There is so many stories just from the last several days but the best one was from yesterday. I had to share it....

I want to preface this post with the two links describing why and what we are doing in this season. They will help to better understand some of the things I bring up in this post if you have not already read them.  “What” Update “Why” Update As of right now, excluding the miles driving around the cities we land in, we have driven 6,845 miles. We have approximately 2 more months of living in our current RV and fulfilling what the Lord shared with us while in Duluth. Within that time we will travel at least 2800 more...

New Heart (Testimony)

Posted by on 2:53 pm in Ministry, Moving, Richee, worship | 1 comment

There have been many who have asked what the heck we are doing as we travel. The answers vary depending on what city we are in but I wanted to give just one testimony from Portland.  In a previous post I briefly mentioned a man by the name of John. He has been waiting for a heart transplant. Months ago he was required to move close to the Portland area based on the need for close proximity if a heart were to become available for transplant. As a result he bought a little travel trailer and was forced to temporarily leave his wife and country...

Change CAN Be Glorious

Posted by on 4:51 am in discipleship, family, friendship, Grace, marriage, Moving, parenting, prayer | 4 comments

I say that almost as a declaration, because it truly can be glorious, if you trust the One bringing the change. In the past 10 months there has been a lot of change in our lives. The great part is that the Lord had been preparing our hearts for this change in many ways. So when it was time, by His grace, we were ready to take the leap. Our first leap was leaving Bloomington or more specifically, Bethany’s campus, which we LOVE because of so many, who have become family to us. It came as a shock to me because I thought we’d be at...

Words, words, how do I put into words my deep love and affection for you?  I know holidays have come to mean very little to us.  You’ve challenged me to let go of the pressure and expectation around holidays and just love and honor each other all the day’s we have breath in our lungs.  But…today, as I look at these pictures of you with our kids.  I can’t help myself.  I truly am thankful for you.  The love of the Father is in you and that love amazes me.  I love how you love.  Our anniversary of 10 years is just around...

I’ll Be Back Soon…

Posted by on 9:34 pm in bible, family, Grace, parenting | 1 comment

We had fun last night singing, reading the Word and talking about Arden’s day and the choices he made throughout the day. We talked about why it’s important to continue to repent for our sin and believe that Jesus really is coming back to judge the earth. In short, I wanted to just share a thought I had last night as we were putting Arden to bed.  This particular night he wasn’t very excited about sleeping in his room because he didn’t like the fact that he was the only one on his floor of the house.  (We live in...
