Celebrating Juan David
Today marked four years since the day Juan David officially came home. But July 11th was his official adoption day, and Shane helped us make it special for him in Guatemala by having them sing to him at the restaurant we ate at that night. Hope the video tu...

The Other Side of the Tapestry
Words just don't flow like they used to. I wrote my heart out to publish my books and then to write a series on ten different names of God. I wrote articles and blog posts on faith, connecting them to my own experiences in an attempt to help launch my books...

Senior Prom 2017
Juan loves to dance (and we are as far from a dancing family as you can get), so he has looked forward to Senior Prom all year long. When he had a job, he had big (and very particular) plans for his attire, his hair, and his mode of transportation for the b...
