Mama’s Boy

I bawled my eyes out before church last night. I started thinking about my baby boy turning 1 in just a few weeks. I walked into the bathroom to make sure my makeup wasn’t smeared. When I looked in the mirror. I started laughing at myself- I started thinking “WHO ARE YOU?”Continue reading “Mama’s Boy”

I do not take for granted that God gave us a child

If we had to choose which year has been the all know we’d choose 2018. That’s when God chose to give us Luke. Ryan and I can’t even remember life before Luke haha! The other day Ryan had to go to a PNP Bible Study and he said the whole time he kept thinking about Luke. That’s how it is for us. I sometimes think “I just need a few hours without Luke to get stuff done, then when he’s not around I’m thinking WHAT IN THE WORLD DO I DO?” Continue reading “I do not take for granted that God gave us a child”


Before Luke was born I did alot of praying, reading and seeking counsel. I wanted to know about natural health in raising my child. I did not want to raise him on medicine, and doctors visits.Continue reading “YOU KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOUR CHILD”

AUDREY GOODPASTOR: I had a very limited understanding of my limitless God

Four months–we have been home just four short months, but in some ways it seems like four years instead. So much has happened in that short time frame. After an absence of two years from our life, work, and home on the mission field, so much has changed–perhaps, nothing more than we ourselves. Continue reading “AUDREY GOODPASTOR: I had a very limited understanding of my limitless God”


I read this quote the other day that has stuck with me since I read it. 

“I don’t believe there are devils enough
in Hell to pull a child out of the arms of a GODLY MOTHER”

My hearts deepest desire is to raise my son for the Lord. I want Him to grow up and be exactly and do exactly what GOD wants him to do. I want to have a part in him growing up to love the Lord. 

I thought it was so good I wanted to make it into something I could print out and hang on my wall to remind me of this HUGE AMAZING RESPONSIBILITY I’ve been given.



Every year we celebrate Thanksgiving together as a family and every year my Mom prepares the most amazing food. This year though us girls decided to surprise my parents and prepare Thanksgiving for them!! Every year my mom goes all out so we thought it would be fun this year to go all out and let her not worry about it.

We literally decided all of this the day BEFORE Thanksgiving. We went to the grocery that afternoon and prepared a few things the night before. It was so fun but too be honest I was nervous. I’d never done any of that WITHOUT my mom.

Anyway we kind of tricked Mom that we would just have a lunch at Ruth’s house nothing big. We talked how this year we would just skip a Thanksgiving meal. So when her and my Dad walked in this afternoon for lunch they were definitely SURPRISED. Ruthie cooked most of the food which was AMAZING. We had the best time planning and decorating. This will definitely be a Thanksgiving I won’t forget!

Today Im just so thankful for my family and Gods goodness. He is so so good.


+ check out Ruthies AMAZING calligraphy skills below! These two went swimming later in the afternoon. They’re so fun to watch together.

I thank God everyday that they get to grow up together.
