I am excited about Dr. Steve and his family coming to Ann Arbor this weekend. It is hard to believe that we have known each other since 8th grade. Over the years we have strengthened our relationship through various key moments in life. We not only served in the same praise band called Alpha Omega, but we also room together in college (our bathroom was disgusting).

It was great sending a missions team from our church out to Kenya to witness everything that God was doing though Steve and his ministry. He is one of the first ones amongst our peers that actually went out of the country to do missions. There have been so many people from our generation who have “talked” about going on missions but he actually did it.

I can’t wait until he challenges our church to live radical for God’s Kingdom and His purposes. It is going to be a great weekend.

Elliot’s 8th B-Day

We, as a family celebrated Elliot’s birthday yesterday. We continued in our tradition of allowing the birthday person to pick the restaurant that they wanted to go to in order to celebrate their special day. Guess what Elliot picked? Famous Dave’s ribs!

I guess my kids have already acquired the taste for “healthy” foods :-)

We also followed in with our other tradition of going around and saying one thing that we appreciate about the birthday person. Christina and I have taught the kids that we are God’s gift to one another and it is important to remind the birthday person how much they mean to us and in what ways our lives have been enriched by their presence.

As they are getting older it is getting easier for them to look at the person in the eyes and genuinely say it without laughing. You should have seen the earlier years. But we have to start them young.

It was great to see Elliot enjoy the food and even the song that the Famous Dave’s staff sang for him. We love Elliot… he adds so much to our family.

Ladies… the way into Elliot’s heart is through food!
