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.

Amanda Catherine Linzey
 8 lbs, 2 oz, 21 in. long

Mama and Papa left for the hospital in the late morning, and got there just in time as things picked up pace rather quickly. Little Amanda was welcomed into our family early in the afternoon, and after Josiah got off work and I finished teaching we all headed up to meet our new sister for the first time!


Papa took Elisabeth's turn for her as she was present in photo and spirit, and, all the while we were there, communicating in text :)

IT'S A GIRL! She kept tradition! :)

"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." 
Psalm 139:14

    This is from Grandmama and Grandpapa. Absolutely adorable! Each of you beautiful children taking turns holding this precious gift from the Lord is a wonderful sight to behold. Each of you are radiant. The picture of Elisabeth is lovely. And, of course, Papa and Mama are two happy parents. Wish we were there to participate in this joyous occasion. Mom and I are going to visit Uncle Peter this week and will be leaving on Sunday afternoon. We will keep checking in to see how things are going with all of you. We love you very much. P.S. Anna, we could tell you have had tears in your eyes and your smile is simply gorgeous. LOL
