As many of you know, for several months now Michael and I have been searching for a new church home. We searched several congregations, met so many wonderful Christians, but never felt like God had opened up a door for us to serve in those congregations. We learned so much as we visited around, but most of all we learned that we want to be more evangelistic. We want to be a part of a church body that is seeking people out to teach them the truth. To be vessels for Christ! We Do NOT want to DO church, we want to BE the Church! We have been so confused with the leadership at our past church and frustrated with the amount of self focus in the body. It is so easy to fall into the "lazy boy" way of worship... and frankly we aren't and don't want to be those type of Christians. Anyways, I say all that to tell you God has blessed us with a new church family, or an old church family. The elders at our old church showed there true hearts to enough people, and others started looking for a new church home as well. So for right now, we are "home churching", with a wonderful group of families. We are meeting in different homes and are working together to heal from past hurts and disappointments, and refocus on Jesus and teaching others the Truth of Gods word. This is something we are going to try for a while and see where God leads us. We want to be honest, accountable, and most of all true disciples of Christ! So please pray for this group of people, Please pray that we will be able to keep our excitement and passion for Jesus, and will have a strong faith to walk through the doors HE is continually opening. Nothing is impossible with God!!

I can't believe how fast this year has gone, but love the things I have been able to witness as the mother of 3 sweet brothers. One year ago today, God Blessed us with our Baby Brennan. The changes babies endure their first year of life is a complete miracle, and I love every minute of it.
