Our Growing Little Family

Kimmy LaMee

Our little family of three... 

Will soon be a family of FOUR!

We are excited to welcome "Little Bit 2" in just a few short weeks! Ivey is convinced that she's having a baby brother, but we won't know that until he or she makes her appearance around September 1st! 

A trip to the Middle East

Kimmy LaMee

We had an amazing opportunity to lead a team to the Middle East to work with refugees about a month ago. We had several purposes for our time there -  to encourage and support the work of some of our friends living there,  as well as to take every opportunity to share Jesus, and encourage those who are struggling and suffering in this region. Many of you have heard about the terrible struggle that refugees are facing right now and the American news really doesn't begin to do it justice! In fact, much of what you hear is sadly not even truth - but that's for another blog... 

Their stories are heartbreaking, their losses are simply overwhelming, yet their spirits seemed unbreakable. As refugee families welcomed us into their "homes", they were filled with moments of joy and laughter. They shared their stories openly and listened as we shared scripture to encourage their weary hearts. They not only listened but they were so very open to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was simply amazing and I headed back home with a greater passion to pray for my new friends and the hundreds of thousands they represent.  Will you join me and take just a few minutes to pray for refugees around the world who are open to hear the truth right now, yet who are struggling just to live and survive. 

Ivey is TWO!

Dan

I'm not so sure how it happened... time just keeps marching on. Our little fun gal turned TWO! We had a fun little simple party at home with just our family and celebrated the gift that God has given us.

She has brought us much joy these two years. She talks and sings NON-STOP. I'm not quite sure where she got that from.  She loves her school, friends, and teachers at First Baptist. She loves reading books and watching Minnie Mouse, thanks to Nana. She loves to take a ride in daddy's car (mommy's car is too big, daddy's car is just right). She loves to eat. She's just a fun silly gal and we thank the Lord for her life! 

Our prayer is that she will continue to grow "big and strong", seeking to know the Lord and make Him known! 

 

Catching Up...

Dan

I can't even begin to come up with a worthy excuse for why it's been so long since we last posted... we've been a wee bit busy around here.

We've settled into our new home. We've had several trips including a trip to Boston, San Francisco, and Baltimore. We celebrated Ivey's 2nd birthday. We've been busy, busy, busy! But life has been good! 

We have lots of fun things coming soon so you'll just have to stay tuned to find out all about it! 

Lessons from Ivey on Modeling

Dan

Ivey has been teaching me lots of lessons lately about "modeling". I'm not talking about the pretty girls or handsome guys you see in magazines. I'm referring to the modeling that we do as her mommy and daddy. She has become quite the imitator and picks up on every little thing that we do. 

For example, since the beginning with Ivey, as I would drive with her each morning to church and preschool, I always take time to sing a few songs and then I pray for our day and things going on around the world. (Aren't you glad you don't have to ride with us and hear me sing! ha) I have treasured those times so very much over this past year and a half (saying that makes me want to go cry - time slow down!)  I didn't really think that it was that important though honestly. I often thought to myself, "this is more for me - this is my worship and prayer time..." But her little ears have been listening oh so closely to me during this time. 

Fast forward to this past week and each morning as we have left to head to church, I have heard a sweet little voice from the backseat, softly say, "pray". At first, I didn't really understand what she was saying, but then she kept insisting and getting louder and louder, "pray, PRay, PRAY!" until I finally realized she was reminding me to pray. 

We began to pray together for our day, I prayed that He would be most glorified in us and that HE would draw her heart to Him one day. I've also prayed that we, as her parents, would remember that we have little eyes and little ears watching everything that we do and that we would always be seeking Christ in order to model Christ to Ivey. I prayed that we would be intentional with every moment, whether its just a car ride to church or playing in her room. 

So what little eyes (or big eyes) are watching you? What are you modeling?
