our happy three-month-old!

Cody Alton is a happy, healthy three month old baby today! I brought him in for a weight check and exam. He weighed 12 pounds, 10 ounces. That's perfect :) 

Dr. Jen thinks he just has a bad cold--poor kid--that has been bugging him for over two weeks now. If there's no change by next Wednesday, I'll bring him in again. The little guy has been so congested, he's not eating or sleeping well, but at least his acid reflux is pretty much resolved with the generic Zantac. We've been having him sleep in his car seat in the pack and play, and for these two congested weeks, he's been better while sleeping, Praise God for an otherwise healthy child!! 

We love this precious boy with all our heart! He is a blessing and huge element of JOY every day.

Thank You God for this son of ours!!!

There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
