Our Littlest Man: JRK

I was just reading my friend Lisa's blog; Hi Lisa! She posted a birth announcement of their second son, Ezra. He's just about two weeks old now. Awwwwwwwww, Congratulations to them on such a cutie! Anyway, she posted his name and the meanings of them. It reminded me that I've had quite a few questions like, "why did you chose Jesse?" "How did you decide on his name?" "What's his middle name?" ...and more. So, I thought I would also share with you about Jesse's name. Hey, why not?


Jesse: God's Gift; Jehovah Exists (Hebrew)

We chose Jesse as his first name because it was a name that we have both liked consistently for a long time. Since we were choosing Cody's name, we've both kept Jesse on the list. The meaning of his name is also special; A Gift. How true! And, Jehovah Exists; what a sincere testament in our life. AMEN!

Robert: Bright Frame (German)

We chose Robert as his middle name because it sounds great with Jesse ;) AND it is Tim's middle name. 

 So, that's where this little J.R.K. gets his name:)

What an honor (and a terrifying reality) that we raise these little ones up in the name of the Lord and leave our legacy with them. I am blessed more than I know by the opportunity to be a mom. More than I can begin to realize or imagine.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

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!
