Belleview Park with Trixie & Andrew

Belleview park is this sweet sweet public park, owned by the City of Englewood. It has a giant plane on display (like up on a stand--you can't go in it), two awesome playgrounds for the kids, several clean picnic shelters, bathrooms, Big Dry Creek (little creek that runs through the length of the park), bridges, a train to ride, and a small farm/petting zoo. It is free to get in, but $1.50 per kid for the Farm or Train. Super fun summer entertainment! The creek is great for the kiddos to play in, because it is shallow (up to two feet at deepest-but mostly around 1/2 a foot deep?), sandy-bottomed, and has fun stuff for them to find on the bottom like rocks, sticks, and crayfish. I love bringing the kids there!

Like a week ago, Trixie and I met up there with the kids and just played. We soaked up the sun, had a picnic, found some crayfish (dead), rode the train, and visited the farm. Lots of fun!

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. 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!
