Take notes, ladies!

This is a special post for my loving husband, happy birthday!

During our thirteen years of marriage my life has been nothing short of amazing because of 1. Jesus Christ in my life and 2. This extraordinary husband of mine.
So here are some qualities you'll want to look for in a husband, ladies, if you want a happy marriage....

He is an amazing father ...

He will always find a way to make you laugh!!!

He loves the Lord and is an AH-MAZING teacher of the Word of God! 
Leading communion at LWCF
Recording a chapter for Through the Word
Sharing at Uturn for Christ

He's not afraid to have a little fun and he's a lover of life
Why not ride an Ostrich?
Helping my grandmother cook a special dinner in his Thomas Jefferson hat

He is truly my best friend in the whole world. He makes life better. He makes me better. 

He might even convince you that it's totally fine to sit near a cheetah while your pregnant!

Because sometimes when I sit across from him, he looks at me like this and it takes my breath away

He loves my friends just as much as I do!

He'll go to great lengths to set up our very, very sad Kenyan Christmas tree year after year

So happy 35th to the love of my life and my best friend! Your family loves you so much!

Happy Birthday Josiah!

Nine years ago I held this sweet baby boy in my arms for the first time and was  completely enraptured with this tiny human. His constant cries and needs both overwhelmed and humbled me. I reflected at the time how much I do the same with God. I cry out for my needs as if they were never coming and was calmly comforted with the tender care and faithfulness of God's ever present help and providence.
This kid makes motherhood look easy now! You can catch Josiah with his nose in a book, coloring and always drawing. He is so helpful and compassionate. He will never let you squash any living creature in his presence. And WOAH be to you if he ever hears about such a tragedy!

He has got the greatest laugh and smile. It is our great joy to parent this kiddo.

Happy 9th Birthday to an amazing kid!
