About Us

We are a family of four and a half- Seth, Bethany, Blevin and Caleb and another little man on the way. Seth is on staff with Campus Outreach and I (Bethany) stay at home with the boys and sometimes sell Usborne books and am making some attempt to homeschool. Blevin is almost five and is the compassionate (most of the time) Transformer and super hero loving boy. Caleb is almost three and keeps me on my toes- there is never a dull moment with him around!!

7 Dresses......

In light of the new movie that just came out- 27 dresses a group of us girls went to see it and yes the brave ones did wear old bridesmaid dresses! Just thought we could get one more use out of them! We did get a few looks- but it was fun and if you are in the mood for a true chick flick- check out the movie- it is really cute!!

Sweet Sophie

Thank you so much for your prayers and concerns- Carlton and Aimee are doing okay- by God's grace! Sophie was born last night and lived 9 peaceful, beautiful minutes before going to be with the Lord. Seth went to see them last night and said it was so encouraging to be with Carlton and see how the Lord's strength has been so good and they talked about Sophie being in heaven with Christ. It is such a sweet and glorious thought. Please go check out her blog to see how amazing Aimee is doing- www.weathersfamily2007.blogspot.com and please keep praying for them, because there will be some hard days ahead!

Please pray....

Our sweet pastor and his wife, Aimee are about to deliver a sweet angel (Sophie Ann) today that will not make it. They have known from the first sonar that she would not make it- she does not have a brain. So.... please pray for them- Carlton and Aimee Weathers and they have a 5 year old little girl, Hannah Grace and 3 year old, Noah and little Sophie Ann will come to be with them for a short, but sweet time.
Today is also the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Aimee said she knew that Sophie just wanted to show them that every life matters and counts. It has been so neat to see the Lord work in the lives of this family and as a result in our church. As I have been thinking about this and any hardship in life I have been thinking of a song based on Psalm 62 by Aaron Keyes-

" My soul finds rest in God alone, my rock and my salvation..... find rest, my soul, in God alone amid the world's temptations; When evil seeks to take a hold, I'll cling to my salvation. ........I'll set my gaze on God alone, and trust in Him completely; with every day pour out my soul, and He will prove His mercy. Though life is but a fleeting breath, A sigh too brief to measure, My King has crushed the curse of death and I am His forever- Oh praise Him, Hallelujah, my delight and my reward, everlasting, never failing- My Redeemer, My God
I am so thankful that His mercies are new every morning-

Caleb left unattended.....

Well...as you can see- my hands are full!! He makes me laugh all the time! I guess these are the things he is learning from his big brother!

He used the chair on the other side of the table to somehow get on the table?!?!

Well...it wasn't much- but it counts!! It snowed here yesterday even though it was really slushy it was fun and we made a few snowballs! Caleb kept trying to eat it and ate some pine straw and dirt too! It was really pretty to watch out the window too! Just wanted to share our snow experience with you!!

So Thankful

Today was a typical Tuesday- bible study this morning, PB & J for lunch, refereeing a few fights, then nap time! So...nap time is usually the time when I reward myself for surviving the day so far and enjoy a little peace and quiet. Today, like many, did not go as planned. Caleb was really tired and only slept a little while and then woke up- obviously still exhausted. So... I laid on the couch with him snuggled on my chest and as I thought of my "To- Do" list that I was not getting done- I also thought about how thankful I am that I get to lay on the couch and let my sweet angel take a nap on my chest while I catch up on Martha Stewart. Just thought we could all take a moment and pause and thank God for how thankful we should be....even when things don't go just as we planned!!

Our Two Boys...

Happy New Year!!!!

Well.... I am going to attempt to keep everyone up to date with things on campus and our two boys! There is lots of change in the works for our family- besides chasing two boys we will be packing up our house and heading to Carrollton, GA. So...new town, new campus, new church, new friends and a new time zone!! It has been so neat to think back over our six years here at Jacksonville and how sweet and faithful the Lord has been to us. I would of never thought that when I moved here six years ago I would be so sad to leave Jacksonville, AL!! It is going to be a hard transition, but trust that this next step is what the Lord has for us.

Can't wait to keep you updated!!
