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.

Land of our Father

By Anna and Elisabeth
Okay, you say it's common...but let me tell you, it's one of the stops we are most acquainted with-- besides the gas station!

Talk about car-cramps--these folks can tell you ALL about it!!!

~ Father's Day ~
We had the joy of spending Father's day in the town where our father spent the golden years childhood.

It was such a blessing to stay in the home of Papa's Aunt & Uncle. 
They were such a joy and welcomed us warmly. 

Papa showed us the pumpkin carriage that he played on when he was a little boy.
It is now part of decoration on a mini golf course!

One of our highlights was taking a hike along the rim of the mountain.

We saw a few signs along the way stating the presence of mountain lions,
however we were spared actually meeting any.

 The view was beautiful!

After the hike, those who still had energy invested it on the playground.

The greatest treasures in life
Are the simple joys!

Sweet Sisters!

Papa and some of the children played a little game with the map and a pen--
Who can point the pen in the correct direction?

Miscellaneous moments of memory making.

Amanda is smile'n and ready to go!

Back in the car...or van. We're ready to hit the road again!

Camel Rock--another mile-marker

Typical New Mexico. You forget you're still in North America when traveling through these mountains. The terrain and respective abodes are quite unique!

"Remove not the ancient landmark,
which thy fathers have set."
~ Proverbs 22:28 ~
