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!!

Some of the Phi Mu ladies - the ones that came tonight!
Thanks for all who have been so faithfully praying! There were 24 or 25 girls at the Bible Study!!!!!! I am so excited!! We talked about one of the misconceptions of Christianity and there was some good conversation!! There were several there that were not Christians and we talked a lot about a relationship with Christ and one girl asked me about helping her with a Bible study! So...thanks for praying and being part of this with me!

and..who doesn't like breakfast in bed? The boys got in my bed this morning and were watching a cartoon and I decided it would be fun for them to eat it in my bed. They got really excited and I was glad I had already decided I needed to change the sheets before Caleb spit out a whole mouthful of food, so then I did not get mad- but laughed!! But..probably won't do it any time soon again- atleast til I need to watch the sheets again!!

Excited, yet overwhelmed!!

I am so excited about what the Lord is doing here at West Georgia- but a little overwhelmed because I want to help so much with these women that want to grow and learn more about Christ! I am trying to follow up with several girls from the 1st big meeting of girls that said they were interested in spiritual things- so pray I can get time with them and I am helping a few of the girls start a Phi Mu bible study on Wednesday night at 9- we are doing it on the misconceptions of christianity. I feel like there is a lot of spiritual interest in this group of girls just from several conversations I have had and ones that people have told me about- So all that to say- please pray!!! I will let you know how it all goes! It really helps me knowing that all my sweet friends are praying with me!!

Weekend of fun!!

We had a fun weekend of different fun events! It all started Friday afternoon with a birthday party and then another party on Saturday morning of our friend Carter in Rome, Ga. Then, off to B'ham to hang out with my family for a little bit and celebrate "Big Daddy T"'s birthday and then a baby shower for Elliott's wife- Sarah- who is having a little boy- Collier Martin!- today!! It was a fun weekend of seeing all different friends and family - but even though we were only gone for 36 hours there is just something great about being home!! So now we are trying to get ready for another busy week!!

Here are some pictures of our fun times at Gi-Gi and Big Daddy T's- it always fun when you have big toys to play with!

Happy 56th birthday Daddy T

thanks to all of you who were praying yesterday- there were 375 people at the meeting!! It was amazing!! It was so cool to be walking into the building where the meeting was and people were just pouring in!! There were over 30 phi mu's there and 25 of their new girls- so I was so excited! They all filled out comment cards and said if they were interested in spiritual things or not and there was a great response- several even wrote on their cards that they think they might have given their lives to Christ!! So...the Lord was so faithful! The first "Outhouse" meeting is this upcoming Tuesday, so pray that the Lord will continue to work in their lives and bring them to the meeting!! Thanks to all of you!!

Here is what has been happening with us-

1. school starting at West Georgia- after we got home from SBP Seth hit the ground running and has not stopped- things are going well and the staff is really excited!

2. Recruitment (formerly known as rush) I am phi mu's chapter advisor and had to be at ALL of rush- but it was good- My main goal was to learn all of their names and between 27 parties in 5 days I had a lot of time to stare at the composite!! For all my sorority friends- some things never change- there is ALWAYS drama and I do have to confess that I shed a tear or two watching the "sisterhood" video and thinking about my good 'ol UM days!! Both of our parents came in at various times to help with the kiddos and after a 1 o'clock, 2 o'clock and 3 o'clock night it was confirmed that I am old and cannot stay up that late and bounce back!! But I do think it was time well spent and I have a good relationship now to talk to them about Jesus- Please pray for them and wisdom in helping them!!

3. Refereeing- this is done on a consistent basis with two boys- there is a lot of pinching, hitting that goes on and several bites here and there- it is never ending but when they do get along and play it is wonderful!!

that is about all we have been doing- besides the normal "mommy things." I am attempting to start preschool with Blevin but after feeling as though I have been hit by a truck this week we have decided to start next week- he has been watching movies during Caleb's nap instead, so that I can rest!!

some fun pics.....

"like father, like son"- he had just tee-teed and then said "I want to read" and sat down on the toilet

ROLL TIDE!! Seth was so excited about Alabama's victory and I got text updates so I would know who won!!! The boys with their Tachi and Daddy Bob

Please Pray!!

I know I have not written in a while- I will fill you in on all of life later in the week but I am asking that you please pray for an event happening tonight! In an effort to get Campus Outreach's name out on campus we have our first big event tonight! There will be a raffle for $1000 given to one person and the fraternity/sorority that has the most members there will also get $500! (Olan -seth's boss- gave each campus 1000 dollars to have a big event and the West Georgia staff thought that adverstising to give the money away would be the best way to draw people in) So..... sorry this is so last minute (seth and I are sharing a computer right now, which means I don't ever get to use it) but the Gospel will be shared and pray that the Lord will use it to draw people to himself!! We are praying for 350 students to come! Which is very possible with 6 sororities and 6 fraternities on campus!! I will let you know how it goes!!
