Big news!


So today we choose to live our faith out loud. Today we choose to trust God. Today we sent in our adoption application. We have felt the gentle nudge of God for sometime now and today we are obedient to His calling. God has placed it on our hearts to adopt a baby from Ethiopia.

So starting today my blog will have a purpose, a direction, a new focus if you will. I hope you will follow along this faith walk with us. Trust will come into play a great deal I am sure. Feel free to remind me of this post in the months to come.

I trust that God has a plan. I trust that God will provide all that we need for His will to be done. God will provide. I am not going to let myself get stuck on the details of how and when, but rather I am going to watch in great awe of God and His mighty power.
