Journey to Obedience (Letting God number our Children)Family journey . Home Schooling . Journey series . Popular Posts
Recently, several people have encouraged me to write out our family story. My first thought was who really wants to read our story. I have enjoyed reading so many other peoples interesting and exciting stories online and in books. Mine is just so ordinary. But, then my husband asked if I would write it out. So, I am writing it for him. It is just a story of two ordinary people trying to learn to live completely dependent on God, and His faithfulness even when they continue to fail.
God gives us this verse during this season of our lives.
I continue to struggle with man’s opinion of our choice to continue to have children and to raise them at home. But, God blesses us and we move forward.
He was ever faithful, even when I wasn’t.
Then in May 2007, Zachery Caleb was born.
On the plane ride home from picking up Davey, I realize that the sickness I am feeling is not just from the rough flight, but that it is morning sickness.
God gives us a new verse: Joshua 24:15 “As For Me And My House We Will Serve the Lord.”
After arriving in Pennsylvania, I begin to suffer with feeling blue. I am not sure if it is baby blues, anxiety over the move, or something else. But, I find the homeschooling laws overwhelming and think I need to change the way I have been teaching. I buy all kinds of books and materials and lay out a plan for the year. It is a complete fail , or as the kids say, epic fail.
God gives us a new verse: Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
This is our present season of life. We do not yet know what is next for us. But, we do know that God wants us to depend on him every moment of everyday. We realize when he called us to be Kingdom Builders and to let Him number our children, that what he really wanted was to teach us to trust Him with everything. Trust Him to provide physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally all that we need, because we realize that we are nothing without Him. As I write this, it is baby Anna’s first birthday, and we look forward to celebrating today and many days to come her life and the lives of all our children. But, whatever God holds for our future, we choose to seek to obey Him and trust Him.

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
