John 14:1-6

Our little Elliana has really grown and flourished over this past year. Not just emotionally, physically and mentally,  but spiritually too.

While I would love to take credit for her spiritual growth, I have to say that our church has done a lot for Ellie. Our church really takes pride in it's Sunday morning and Wednesday evening classes for little ones. They're always saying that they're not just babysitting kids while we're in church or in our own small groups, but they're really working hard to teach kids the word of God and to know it well.

Caleb and I were first caught off guard and impressed when Ellie came home singing a song that taught her how to sing all of the books in the old testament and in the right order (we still want to get this on video by the way).

A few weeks ago, her Sunday school teacher handed me some flash cards to help Elliana with her latest scripture memorization. Imagine my shock when I sat down to work on this with her and she already had the whole thing memorized! I'm not saying she didn't glance at the flash cards (which by the way she can't read so she's just going off of a picture), but she didn't look at them much.

Am I bragging on my daughter here? Yes! I think most parents would. :) But I'm also bragging on our church. I'm just so happy to see Ellie growing so much and enjoying learning about God and loving him with her whole heart!

Without further ado, I give you Ellie reciting John 14:1-6:

Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

I can't even tell you how much I loved that video. I made Jeremy watch it with me this morning and we were both amazed at how much she was able to memorize. And that voice! I die...

Every time Dad and I watch this video we are amazed!!! Not only because she's only 4 years old and has memorized more than some adults have. But also because of her joy and excitement about learning more about Jesus and the bible!! :) Ellie is soo cute with how she lives for Him!! We love her!!:)

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
