Esther Ring on leafMy niece Esther is engaged!

Please pray for her and Alan as they seek out what a healthy marriage is and how they need God to be part of it.

Please also pray as she tries to plan a beautiful outdoor fall wedding.  She has many great ideas and is working hard on finding needs at a reasonable price.

Congratulations Esther and Alan.  We are praying for you as you get ready!


Autumn Waterfall


We started a photography class this fall. My Dad bought us a DVD that has many neat ideas that we will work on. Right now, we are traveling to different locations attempting to capture some colorful fall pictures.

The kids realize that each camera has its own strengths, but they all prefer mine.  When I see that someone has found a really neat picture idea, I let them borrow my good camera. I would love to see each child develop their own photographic style and be able to start a portfolio to use to encourage others.
