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.

A Valuable Mother

Mothers with courage; 
Mothers who pray,
These are the kind 
The world needs today.

Mothers who think, 
Who study and plan;
Mothers who laugh 
As much as they can,

Having the gift 
That is better than money--
The habit of seeing 
That some things are funny.

Mothers whose faith 
Never waivers or falters;
Mothers whose spirits 
The world never alters;

Loving the right 
And scorning the wrong;
Facing the the problems 
Of life with a song.

Mothers whose bravery 
Transcends their fears;
Winning the battle 
With patience and tears;

Never submitting 
To weakness or sin--
Storming heaven's gates 
Till the children are in.

Mothers heroic, 
Not guilty of whining;
Hands graced with service 
And faces with shining.

Mothers of purity, 
Virtue and faith,
Steadfast in life and 
Triumphant in death;

Looking beyond the 
Dark pathway of sorrow,
Seeking a home in 
God's joyous tomorrow,

Leading the children; 
Pointing the way--
These are the mothers, 
The world needs today!

We are forever grateful to the Lord for the wonderful mother He has given to us. She is such an indispensable part in our family and so beautifully exemplifies the type of woman portrayed in the thirty-first chapter of Proverbs. She is all that a mother should be and is our role-model and best friend. It was our privilege to surprise her with a deluxe breakfast--even before the morning Church service--and bestow her with tokens of our love for her. Happy Mother's Day, Mama!!!

"Favor is deceitful, 
and beauty is vain:
but a woman that 
feareth the Lord,
she shall be praised."

~ Proverbs 31:30 ~
