Wandering in the Desert… again

This past week I was able to go to our Elevation service at church.  It was a last minuet switch… and I was blown away that the Lord had given me what seemed a random day off from serving, but a perfect message that spoke straight to my heart. Backing up a little… Life has … Continue reading

Police Academy!

Police Academy!

Brock had his very first day of Police Academy at Fullerton College today! I’m so proud of him! Becoming a Police Man has been his hearts desire for a while now. He started persuing his dreams when doors closed for him at Audi in 2008.
God obviously had other ideas for him at the time. After enlisting in the ARMY, a deployment to Afghanistan, and a job at Audi, he is self sponsoring his way through Fullerton’s part time Police Academy. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be on this journey with him.

Marriage is an amazing journey… I didn’t know 5 years ago those what those “valleys” I promised to walk through would entail. I didn’t know the joy I would see on the mountain tops either. Both have been real. I’m looking forward to this next year and how we will both grow! It will be a trying year, and lots of work for our family. But I know the outcome will be great.

Pray with us if you will? There are quite a few loose ends that are blowing in the wind still…
