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!!

about one year ago...

I left the city of jacksonville and a church that I ABSOLUTLEY loved and crossed from central to eastern time to the great state of Georgia! I can't believe that it has already been a year and although it was a hard move- I am amazed at the confirmations that the Lord has given us that we are supposed to be here!!
Here are just a few things I love about Carrollton and I am thankful for:

*The favor He has provided for me with Phi Mu
*the boys loving our new house-yard- and friends
*my sweet friend- mary ann- that has made the move so easy
*Target- one mile from my house (just a sweet bonus)
*a house I love with a great yard and great neighbors (my sweet neighbor Mrs. charlotte takes care of me!!! she brings us food and gets our mail and just comes to hang out in the afternoon when I am out with the boys)
*over 30 students coming to Christ- AMAZING!!!! (this is all i really need to say)
*a great church that loves us (actually my sweet friends threw me a suprise birthday party today- so i am so thankful for these ladies and their walks with the Lord)
* a great staff team
*the sun setting later here (well i know the time is diferent, either way- the sun is up til past dinner!!!)
*awesome parks we can walk to and the memories that go with them!
*sidewalks everywhere to run on with my jog stroller

so...these are just a few things- but I am thankful for this change and although there are soooooo many memories I have from good ol j'ville- i have made so many more her in good ol carrollton and can't wait to see what else the Lord is going to do and where he will take us!!!!

30 is the new 20!!!

So...I am officially 30!!!!! It is so crazy- I don't feel any different, but it is weird that I am no longer in my twenties!!! And my sweet Seth did such a sweet-fun suprise for me!!! Yesterday after lunch he came in and told me I had ten minutes to pack for one night!! he did not tell me where i was going or with who- but I picked up my friend mary ann and we went to my parents lake house and when I got there several of my really good friends were there to suprise me. Not only had he gotten my friends there- but he had thought for EVERYTHING -our dinner- mexican and my favorite chips and salsa from our favorite mexican place-margaritas!!- snacks- had traci bring me my favorite panera bagels- had a cake for me- had all of them think through our favorite memories and one thing to encourage me with and then we just talked and talked and talked and then watched a movie and then this morning we sat at the breakfast table for three hours and talked more!! This morning I got my gift from seth and the best was he wrote a list of 30 things he loved about me and it made me laugh and cry!! So- I feel so loved and am so thankful for all the blessings the Lord has given me!!

my kid hates clothes

so .....caleb has a new hatred for pants!! Yesterday morning by lunch I had changed/redressed him three times. He is somewhat ready to potty train and so he will take his diaper off after he has peed in it and then when I dress him- he will be undressed in a few moments- luckily it has not happened in public yet!!! here is some naked vacumning!!!! anyone need their house cleaned?

happy late valentines day

so.....a little late!! but we had a fun family day- heart pancakes to start with and then heart pb&j's and then opened our valentines from grandparents and then to wal mart to pick out a prize with valentines money from tachi and then to our favorite restaurant- ci-ci's and then the boys opened their valentines day prizes and lots of candy!!! seth and I dont do anything cause we both think it is kind of a silly holiday so we just had fun being with our kiddos!!!

ski trip

we took a weekend ski trip several weekends ago to north carolina. There were about thirty students from west georgia and we had so much fun skiing on ice!!! we had a few little meetings so it was exhausting but so fun and no one got too hurt!!!
