Why We Believe

Have you ever woken up and thought “Didn’t I just go to sleep?” Lately it seems like each day flies by and I don’t remember what I did the day before. Everything just runs together into one thick stream of LIFE.

Terence and I have both felt convicted to study the Bible more because we know there will be a day when Connor will ask us “Mommy & Daddy why do you believe what you do?” We just started attending a new church and really like it there! I admit I have not always been the best at studying and reading the Bible like I should. We are trying to change that though….and I want to be a better person and Mommy for him……
Terence’s Dad gave him this book called “Systematic Theology“. Honestly, I would have never opened it unless Terence told me about it and we started reading it together. It explains a lot of those questions about “WHY” things are the way they are in the Bible. We just started this book, and so far it’s been a great learning tool. I don’t want to feel guilty because I am not leading the kind of lifestyle I should be….I want to be an example…not just any kind, but a Godly example.

My time with this little guy is not a whole lot πŸ™ By the time I pick him up after work and get things done for the next day it seems like we’ve only shared a few hours in the evenings. I wish I could stay at home, but on the other hand I do cherish the moments we have a lot more now.

I can tell he’s going to have lots of questions….just like his Daddy!

He’s my sweet angel and I thank God every day for this little life He has in trusted in my arms

    Those are some of the sweetest photos EVER!!! Those baby blues are gonna be haunting some girlies one of these days! Ha!

    I was gonna tell you that my cousin goes to the same church as your parents…she was on Kelly’s prayer blog, too. I was praying specifically for you and for her to have babies … and you have Connor and they adopted a little boy (only by the grace of God) late last year. It’s a small world.

    I have never been a religious person – grew up without going to church. But now that I have kids, I feel like something is missing and that I want more for my kids. We are currently trying out some different churches in our area looking for one that really suits us. I am so excited to open up my life and experience things in a whole new way with more meaning.

  14. OMG Connor is so gorgeous and wide awake in these pics!! What a cutie!

    Hi ,
    I love the quality of your baby’s pictures. Can you please share with us what type of camera you use. I’m in the market for one and would like my baby’s photos to be just as nice.
    Thanks
