The Memphis Trip

Leave a comment

This is a few weeks late, but I really wanted to document our first time (as a family) going to the MSOP lectureship.  This is something Jeff and I have gone to every year, but this was the first time getting to bring the littles.  It’s so great to be spiritually uplifted and see lifelong friends.  Some of our greatest and dearest friends are at the lectures every year!  We really enjoy getting to catch up with the Manning clan.  Usually the whole family is there and we all get to visit, eat, and play a little disc golf.  This year they didn’t disappoint.  We had a blast!  We also got to catch up with Kara MacAfee, Cassidy Reynolds (and family), the Richardsons, the Cates, all of the Independence Crew, a lot of the families from our class (we missed you Kate and Nate), and many other families!  A lot of ya’ll have been following us via blog, facebook, or instagram, so it was your first time seeing baby Everett’s face and meeting them both in person.  It meant so much to us when you would comment about how you had been following us on our journey and praying for us and our children.  Honestly it means the world!  I was brought to tears many times, by the kind thoughts and hugs.

It’s so wonderful and uplifting to get to sing praises to God and hear sound lessons in his word each day and night.  We especially loved the topic this year and felt it gave us a good push to keep going strong for the Lord even if adversities arise.   It’s incredibly special to be around like-minded Christians that can relate in almost every way to life in the ministry.  It’s such a blessed, wonderful life.  It’s always so much easier when you are a Christian.  One of my favorite parts is how BIG our family is in Christ!  We have brothers and sisters all over the world.  Memphis lectures are like a giant homecoming for us!  I’ll stop rambling now, and post pics. 🙂

then there was the night when a drunk guy in the hotel pulled the fire alarm and my baby fell and hit his head.  Ouch!

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!
