Christmas 2012 | Happy Birthday, Jesus!!!

Cody & Dad Milaca 2012
We had a great Christmas!

Big Picture: Hectic. We were crazy busy trying to coordinate plans between so many families.
Small Pictures with each family group: WONDERFUL! We had a blessed time with many many people during the week of Christmas.

One of the really great parts is that we got to spend some time with my dad! We haven't ever spent a Christmas with him (since Tim & I have been married). So, that was a total treat!

Thanks, Dad, for coming to Milaca!!! WE LOVE YOU!

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!
