I Want Momma!

I Want Momma!

Max is now 6.5 months old and he has entered a new phase.  It's the "I Want Momma!" phase. He is cute but it is not a cute phase.  For those of you who pray, we would appreciate your prayers! We haven't taken pictures of Max in a while, so I thought I would post some new ones.  These are the only ones he would allow me to get.  Enjoy :-?

Happy 29th Birthday Amanda!

Happy 29th Birthday Amanda!

From age 28 to age 29 I have to say that it was the most stressful but also the very best year with you. Stressful because we went on furlough, found out we were going to have a baby, moved into a new apartment, and are in the process of trying to figure out how to raise that baby.

David’s Couch to 10k

I have started running programs in the past and eventually I stop because I let life get in the way (excuses). I have done the Couch to 5k program a couple of times.  This time I wanted something a little more challenging, so I went from the couch to a 10k in 13 weeks. Last Saturday I ran my first ever 10k.  It wasn't an official race but who cares. I also kept track of my weight and I was able to drop from 76.8 kilos (169.32 lbs) to 73.8 kilos (162.70 lbs). About 4 weeks ago we implemented a diet called Great Taste No Pain and since then I have dropped about 3 pounds. Now...

Can I Grow in Holiness Without the Local Church?

Can I Grow in Holiness Without the Local Church?

If a person is not worried about their growth in holiness, then fine.  What difference would it make for them to go to church? But if they desire to grow into Christlikeness, then shouldn't they consider what role the local church plays in it? I hope that this video is helpful to you.
