Jordan singing deck the halls
I love my new clothes mommy

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. We started out by having the two oldest read to us Janae read a Proverb and Jordan read the birth of our Lord and Savior. Christmas memories are so fun to watch the excitement on their faces. My four year old was so excited to receive the Thomas train that has the steam engine. Janae was so excited to get that cabbage patch boy doll the one that she thaught was for her cousin this whole time. Than jordan was so excited to get that studded black belt that is two sizes too big. And than to see a grandpa get so thrilled about some old movies that we picked up for him. Than their is our Nana she was thrilled and delighted to receive a Rachel ray cookbook. What joy it is to see people over joyed on this special day. We are so blessed that we live where we live and we are able to enjoy this Holiday Season.
Well for us the Christmas excitement left as when we arrive home from a family dinner my h usband and my daughter both got sick. We ended our night watching Thomas go round and around the train track as my husband slept and my daughter layed in agony with a tummy ache. Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, Char


your such a two year old sneaky as ever.

We would love for all of you to still be praying for her. We are waiting on our Lord. To show us the way. We really need his direction to show us how he want's us to help her. We are in constant prayer for her. Thanks for all of the prayers we so appreciate them. Char

Well so much has happened since I last blogged. My week has really been one big blur. On Friday at 5:30 am I AWOKE to my front door bellringing and my cell phone all ringing at the same time. It was my husband who was standing at the front door with glass all over him. He hit a deer and his side window was completely shattered but thank God he was ok. Our windows had just been shot out of with a bb gun by some lovely kids so know he had 2 windows to replace.
Than Friday mid morning my daughter at the time I thought she was having a asthma attack actually ended up that she was prolaby having a mild seizure we ended up in the emerency room after a cat scan and bood work they think she is having petite maul seizures. That was scary because I have been treating her with a breathing machine for asthma and the whole time she prolaby has been having seizures. She had a mri yesterday and she is scheduled for a eeg on the 21st and her appointment with the petriactrics neurologist is on the 29th. So please keep her in your prayers.
Well on a lighter note I think I am going to have to change my blog name to mommy to fives j's we found out that we are expecting our fifth miracle from God around the 21st of July. I am very excited and nervous. I miscarried and had a d/c last October. So please pray for a healthy pregnancy And that my body will be healthy and all will go well with this little life inside me.
My God has been so wonderful through all of this He has gave me verses and peace about Janae He showed me the verse in Jeremiah about how HE knew her before He formed her in my womb. He loves her even more than I do which seems hard to believe.

Loving Nana

Today is a hard time for me. My Nana's memorial is this afternoon. She passed away the morning after Halloween. I am rejoicing that she is heaven she loved her Lord. I am also sad that I get touch her any more talk to her or just go visit her. My kids will never have the relationship with her as I always did. We got together last night with family an talked about her and all of our memories. She all described her one word here are some the words that best described my nana. Loving, honest, kind,gentle,unconditional love,forgiveness,foxy,hospitable,sincere,tranquility,sweetness. When we were done we saw that she was like Jesus she had all of the attributes of our Lord. A couple of days before she passed away she had a amazing thing happen my Aunt went over their to see her she was cleaning and laughing and playing worship music. My nana was always sick and not felling well so this was out of her character. She said I fell better than I have in 10 years she said I met with my Jesus and asked for forgiveness and he took all of my guilt away had a talk and he met me here. I am so thank ful for that conversation she had with mey aunt. Because if my Nana had passed away a year ago I am not sure where she would be today. She was baptized less that a year ago and she gave her life to our Lord.
This death has made me open my eye's to my family for years I have not been around them very much well some of them like my aunt and nana and my mom but the other's have bugged me or hurt me. I have forgave them but I still did not want to be around them. This has made me see that if I have truly forgave them than I need to be around them I need to show them the love of Jesus many of them are not saved. Jesus hung out with tax collectors and prositutes. Who am I hanging out with. I challenge you this holiday season to maybe spend time with family members that maybe bug you are frustate you. They need to see how much their Lord loves them.
Please be praying for my family this afternoon they will be to doing a alter call and that would be so amazing to see people get saved through my nana's death. Especially pray fro my step dad Ron and my uncle scott thank you,
In His Love and mine, Char

Today is Friday it is prayer request day. First I want to pray for our nation and all the craziness that is going on at all of the schools. I have read and heard that the Amish family went to his funeral and they told the nation that they forgave the man that killed their daughter. I want to lift up our teenagers they are in such a spiritual battle they need to be covered in prayer for guidance and protection. I want to pray for our president in all of the huge dissions that he has to make in order to run this country.
If you have any prayer request please post them here and I will pray for you or if their is someone out there that needs pray please let me know. I hope you all have a great weekend..

Something to think about we talked about this in our bible study. If you only had three weeks to live how would you live them.?

saying goodbye is so hard.:(

A relaxing Saturday before Janae's game
This is the bowl that I was talking about

Mydad will be leaving tomorrow we have had such a wonderful visit. I always have a hard time on the day that he leaves I have actually cried a couple of times just thinking about his departure. I even think back to less than a year ago he was dying and it looked like he would dnever be able to make this trip. Now he is so full of life he has helped me take out a old stove,fixed my back door,played numerous games of catch and soccer with my kids,taken down a microwave, He even went inside this bowl thing at the park that the kids skate board in he is so full of life how wonderful it is to see that. I love my dad so much and I hate to see him leave but I am so thankful that I got to see him again and have fun with him. Life is so short we never know what tomorrow will bring.

Well since my dad has been here I celebrated my 37th birthday and he celebrated his 67th birthday we had a great time. We went down to the park with a bunch of our friends and we celebrated life. I have the cutest daughter. For my birthday she purchased a Old Navy gift card for me for 25.00 dollars. She even gave it to me a day early so I could go shopping with it for my birthday. Here they are they are so cute. I hope you all have a blessed weekend
In His Love and mine also, Char

Help I need some mommy advice. I have a four year old who is so disobedient I have honestly been around a million children and I have never experienced the things that he does. He will not listen to me for anything I can spank him pray with him and tell him to go to his room or to just sit on the couch he will run from me and scream at the top of his lungs at me I hate you you are stupid dumb idiot he will yell I am not listening to you. He punches me and hits me the other day he kicked me right in the face while I was discipline him.
He punches his siblings he hits the wall he throws him self down and he will run out side from me or down the street. I am so desperate for some help if I was not a Christian he would be a some kind of drugs to calm him down and make my life easier. I have to say that I am really nervous about throwing my self out their sharing such intimate problems about my child so please be nice to be on the advice but please help me I am desperate. I know what God word says about spanking him I have no problem doing that. I pray with him after wards and try to love him but at the same time it's hard too find the balance. Please be praying for me I hate the way I feel right now.

Before you start your day put on Jesus.

1. He is the truth ( John 14:6)
2. He is our breast plate of righteousness(Romans 13:14)
3. He guides our feet in peace (Luke 1:79)
4.He is our shield of faith (Hebrews 12:2)
5. He is the captain of our salvation(Hebrews 2:10)
6. He is the word made flesh (John 1:14)

Let him guide your feet today be in His presence. Have a great day.

I no longer have high speed so blogging just isn't the same. Well it's that time of the year when Satan starts whispering in my ear. I always listen to him it's the same thing why don't you not homeschool this year it would be so much easier for you. You could spend more time doing other things and it's such a pain to get all of your curriculum together not to mention you could save a lot of money. I do not think you have to home school just because you are a Christian but for my family it's what the Lord has for us. H e has asked me to homeschool my children and when I get all got up in the hassle of it or the money than I am in sin. I am in sin because I don't have the peace that he has gave me. I also don't want to listen I want to plug my ears and pretend I don't hear him.After all that is a lot easier to ignore than to listen.
Well like I said I hate this time of the year I start questioning my self and others around me.Does this happen to anyone else. ?
So this year I am not going their I am going to trust Him with all of my heart and know that if He is asking this from me he will show me the way and also provide for me. You will even give me the extra time that it takes. As you all prepare to either get ready to homeschool or get back into school I will be praying for you. O r better yet let's all pray for each other to be listening to the Lord in whatever he is asking from us.

hubby and sister
Jacobs birthday with all of his cousins
Jacob turned 4 happy birthday sweetie.

The family is all gone and I have to say I am very sad. It was so nice to have them all around us we had a blast. But now the house is so quiet and I am a little depressed today for a lot of stupid reasons I thought if I shared them I would feel better. 1. We had to have are television turned off we had satellite but we are trying to cut back where we can. I know that is a stupid one we went without t.v. for three years and I surveyed but I really enjoyed the baby stories and the discovery channel.2. We are getting rid of our high speed so prolaby no more blogging for me or shopping or just browsing oh well that is another stupid thing to be depressed about. I can't go to the gym this month again trying to cut back on expenses. Maybe it's because they are all at once and I have a ton of hormones in my body right now if you know what I mean.
W ith all of that said I don't feel any better but now I will have more time to read my bible and spend time with my kids and hubby. No distractions around me just me and my family. Hey I will look at it with a different attitude jits not that we have to get rid of all of that junk it's that we get to so we can spend more time together as a family enjoying Gods love for us and reading his word.
O.k. I guess I do feel a little bit better now hope you all have a wonderful weekend enjoying your family.

Family reunions

My house is about to become hotel central. Yes their is going to be 15 kids and 11 adults all under one roof. We are going to have our first annual family reunion. A lot of the aunts and uncles have never even seen my kids and my husband and I have not seen all of their kids. It is going to be one big slumber party. If you have any suggestions please send them my way. This is the first time I have never hosted something this big. We are all so excited to be able to do this and to be able to see my husband's sisters and nieces and nephews.
My husband has four sisters and I find it sad that they are not closer but with kids and expenses it has taken a long time to be able to do this. My biggest concern is how do you all take showers we have two showers and two bathrooms. Scary if you ask me that is a lot of showers How do you cook for that many people. So please keep us in your prayers and if you have any suggestions please let me know.

Spoiled little brat.

This has been an incredible month.First my dad is completely healed of all of his horrible cancer. My husband quit his job based only on the direction the good Lord had for him. All of these changes in our lives and I am still a spoiled little brat. My husband has quit his job to be able to eventually buy our friends business. So here we are he has quit his job and now he is working for our friend he is training him so that he will be able to run this business. So on Wednesday we start out the morning looking at banks and interest rates. Well by the end of the day I was mad frustrated disappointed confused and angry. Why because things were not going my way.The bank wants this and the mortgage company says you did all of it backwards you should have stayed at your job. And on and jon everyone we turn people want money something we don't have right now. I was so angry not at me or hubby but at God yes my Lord and Savior the one we has blessed me so many times just in this month alone. I was like what are you thinking this is never going to work hello where are you? I was so angry that I did not or could not worship him that night at bible study.
So here I am sitting kind of listening to the study and than this still small voice says you should listen to this. I am still not even sure where we were at in the bible but the one thing that I heard so loud and clear is that I am spoiled and you expect it because I want it. OUCH big spanking I was like A spoiled child wanting my way. I threw God out completely and was not even trusting him even though I said it over and over again in my head it was not in my heart. God is so good He was gentle in my spanking and he gave me a really cool verse. Romans 12
Serving the Lord rejoicing in hope patient in tribulation continuing steadfastly in prayer.I need to be patient he has it no matter what happens He has it. I need to wait on him and continue to serve Him resting in his arms laying at his feet.
Have a great weekend resting in your Fathers arms.

Good morning ladies,
Today is Friday I came across this verse in my quiet time this morning and thought I would share it with all of you. This verse literally reads that since God is for us who can be against us. As humans who have the tendencies to think that God is disappointed with us.Not true God is for you and he's for me.God views his people very highly and loves all of you very deeply already sees the end product and we are already glorified in his eyes.
Our sin is not to big for Him we are all blow it's and we have a God who wipes away are sin and makes it as white as snow. He loves all of you unconditionally you are His daughter. I hope all of you have a blessed Friday remembering how much our Lord and Savior Loves YOU.

I have some good news my husband is going to be giving notice at work today. He has had the Lord open up some amazing doors he is going to start working for our friend he will finally be able to get off of his knees. He has arthritis so bad the last time he saw the doctor he told him he better get a secretary job.Our pastor is going to go full time at our church soon and he will take ever that business. Lots of prayers for my honey thanks,

school days are almost over.

Am I dreaming or is it true school is almost over.I am planning a celebration day to celebrate school year is over.My children think it will be fun to have a backwards day and eat junk food before the pizza.That sounds like a fun idea to me.I want to try to have a little craft for them to do like door hangers or bags to paint. Is anyone also out there doing something fun to celebrate the school year being over. I have to do someting to keep my mind off of my dad.
Thanks for all of the prayers my dad has taken a bad turn he started to urinate and it is pure blood. He has some kind of infection with the white cells and the red blood cells. He also fell in the middle of the street the trash can was to heavy for him and it fell on home scratched his legs and arms and he broke his glasses. A neighbor had to come over to get the can off of him feel so ba dfor my dad he always has been so very INDEPENDENT.This has to be hard on him to have to ask for help from other people.He is also not eating agian he said nothing taste very good if any of you know of any good recipes that other cancer patients liked please give them to me thanks.
On a happier note my father in laws test all came back o.k

missing my dad

Janae and Grandma
Grandpa,Janae and Jordan

me and my dad
arrived in Utah at 3:oo on Thursday.The ride was pretty fast and very comfortable.Kelly drove the whole time and her van is so comfey.No words could have ever prepared me for what I saw there sat my dad in his chair he had no hair and his skin was so yellow and he had no voice it was the saddest thing I have ever saw.My dad who can not sit still for more than 5 minutes was so liveless and all he did was sit in his chair except to eat and sometimes sit outside
with us.
My dad looked so different to me that it actually took my breath away the first time I saw him. While I was there I learned thaat he is actually having the most advance chemo that they have.I also learned that he will prolaby have radiation but that it won't help him his cancer has spread to his lungs and the tumor in his stomach has not shrunk.
My dad and I had a really good talk he told me that he beleived that Jesus is his Lord and Savior and he died for his sins. H e told me that I will see him again in heaven that he loved me and for me to please keep in touch with his wife. And to continue to grow my children the way that I am. My step mom could use prayers to as hard is this is for me it has to harder for her they have been married 21 years and she is not to healthly herself she takes care of him day and night. She has a sweet personality and heart.
I feel like my life is on hold right now and I can't make long term plans I need to be able to get to my dads when hospice comes. Please continue to pray for me and my family.Also please pray for my father in law who lives with us they found a mass in his stomach and he is having a catscan done on Thursday. God bless all of you.
