2017 Justice Conference

stronger together

Over the last few months, Steve & I have been talking and reading a lot about the past century of African American history, lingering racial injustice & structural inequality, and the church’s role in racial reconciliation.

We’ve talked extensively together and we’ve talked with a few people in our church about how we can better address racial reconciliation in our congregation. Then, a few weeks ago, Steve & I got to attend the Stronger Together 2017 Justice Conference here in Oklahoma City.

Peek-a-boo! {Now There’s TWO!}

peek-a-boo
Steve & I came back from Thanksgiving break on Sunday night both feeling sick, but we were so excited because this Wednesday was our ultrasound, and we were eager to find out our little one’s gender. We were both going to be so excited for a boy or a girl!

When we got to our appointment, I lay down on the ultrasound table and as soon as the exam started, we both saw it – TWO heads!

The Road Goes Ever On and On

the road goes ever on and on

After the unbelievably loving response that I got from Tuesday’s post, I have to start this post with a thank you to my readers! I can’t count the messages, comments, texts, and emails that I got from you guys, all sending prayers our way. It just goes to show that I wasn’t kidding about that Romans 12:15 stuff, you guys have that verse written on your hearts.

I thought that now would be a good time to let you guys know some more specific ways you can be praying for us during this next step of our adoption.
