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.

Hey y'all! This is one place you should visit--Tulsa Aquariums. 
It is full of amazing sea creatures and is super kid-friendly with all the hands-on exhibits. 

We had such a blast recently. Put on some goggles and join our day under the sea!

Caleb especially has developed a passion for deep sea science. This was such a thrill to him.

Puffy fish

Amanda wasn't so sure about a person in the fishtanks, but the rest of us were quite intrigued!

The stingrays

The Shark-Walk

Sort of what you may encounter if you ever find yourself at the bottom of the deep.

The Ozark exhibit was neat. We got up-close views of beavers, otters, and a raccoon.

Critters--large and small--that you may discover in a swamp or rainforest

This was a highlight--petting sharks and rays!

Joshua and Joseph--quite a dramatic experience :)

Joseph is one grand pro at dramatized expressions!

The more civilized (for now) groups.

An evening at our family favorite restaurant topped the evening off wonderfully!

"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;
and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:
 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee:
and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
 Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind."
~ Job 12:7-10 ~
