Our Family Mission Statement

We are a real family seeking to serve a real and living God. Our desire and mission is to magnify and glorify God in our everyday life at home, church and abroad. Our goal is to help families understand what their purpose and design is in regards to the family; recognize the enemy for who he is and what he is doing; and to point families, both saved and unsaved, to Christ as to become living pictures of Christ and His bride and of God and His children. As families are strengthened the church will be strengthened, therefore, being a brighter light to a dark and hurting world.

Seasons!

 Posted by Christina

 What comes with seasons? We all have gone through, are going through, and will be going through seasons of life. Seasons of beauty, comfort, delight, and rest (Spring). Seasons of hardship, heat, dryness, and trials (Summer). Seasons of death to visions and passions; gathering the fruit of what has been sown previously, yet at the same time, wondering anxiously about what will be sown in the future (Autumn). As well as seasons of coldness, fogginess, unclarity, and just emptiness (Winter).

 As autumn has come, I have been reminded of the representation that this process gives. One way to look at this time is in one simple word "change". Change from one stage of life to another. I don't know about you, but I am a person that so easily gets hooked on the process of change, while neglecting where and what it leads to. But while I am sitting and concentrating on the eye-to-eye point of view with all the overwhelming and "bigger than us" things; God is above, looking down onto the "smaller than Him" things of life that so easily scare and bring insecurity to us. He is such a tender and loving Father who knows us better than we know ourselves. Change is a demand to that which makes up life. If it weren't for change in the weather, where would the flowers of the field be? Where would the grass for the cattle on a thousand hills be? Where would the strong and majestic Red Wood trees be? And in such of a like manner, if it weren't for change in our walks with Christ...where would we be? May we never forget that it is only in the seasons of life that we are weakened and soon destroyed if we aren't founded in the Rock, or that we are strengthened and grow to newer heights as long as we are firmly rooted in Christ who is our Rock.

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the LORD, so walk ye in Him: Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."
Colossians 2:6-7

A Long-awaited Family Update!

Posted by Christina

Well, here we are in the middle of a very busy, yet blessed year full of God's faithfulness and grace!
Although it has been very busy with daily life, birthdays, vacations, anniversaries, schedules, graduations, and whatever else comes in the package, God has always proven Himself faithful time and time again. Great is our God and He ought to be greatly praised!

Our life has changed some since Elisabeth has gotten married, but it  hasn't changed in the fact that life still keeps us hopping! It has been fun though and the following pictures and explanations will allow you to get a glimpse into the main highlights we have had since the wedding and will lead you into some of this summers adventures! Hope you enjoy!

A Trip Out West!
In December we headed back out to California for our great-grandmother's funeral, but in this family it is nearly impossible to take a jot like that and not turn it into another Linzey family vacation!

At the Grand Canyon!

At a resort, right by the beach!

We were blessed to visit the USS MIDWAY!! It was amazing!

Congratulations, Laura and Christina!

Summer Fun!

WORKING IN THE FLOWER BED

"...And let us not be weary in WELL DOING,
for in due season we shall reap if we faint not."

Of course, there's no summer without watermelon!


We had a great Memorial Day with a cookout, extended family, and Papa's stories and devotion in his sailor's uniform! We had a wonderful time!

Charity did a fantastic job of creating this USA banner!

Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary, Papa and Mama!

While Papa and Mama were away for a week to celebrate their 25th, us children scurried around planning and preparing the last-minute details for a surprise party for them! Thank you to all the ones who decorated, cooked, and orchestrated this special occasion to make this happen! The food was delicious, the hostesses (our cousins) were marvelously hospitable, and the fellowship was very encouraging and inspiring!
