And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6

Update on Jennifer & the babies

Yesterday my sister-in-law was admitted to the hospital at 27 weeks for more steriods, monitoring and tests. She will be in the hospital for 72 hours and will remain in Phoenix until the babies are born. They were blessed to have someone offer their condo for them to stay in. Their home is 3 hours away so this is a huge blessing for them. The smallest baby, Bryson, is measuring 3 weeks behind. Please keep Bryson, McKenna, Jusin and mommy in your prayers. I know God is holding them all in His care, and can work miracles beyond what we can even imagine. Pray Bryson catches up and gets stronger. All of this is a stressful time for Jennifer and her husband, Brian so please lift them up in prayer. Thanks to all the prayer warriors! Love ya!

God instills the desire of beauty in our hearts.....


Today's GIG (Girlfriends in God) devotion is the perfect setup for the giveaway I'm planning. My favorite statement from the devotion, "God has placed in our hearts a love for beauty and a desire to be beautiful – as He defines it." As a young girl we dream of being beautiful, and as a mother we dream of being beautiful. Of course, beauty within is the most important, but there is nothing wrong with desiring an outward beauty. Praise God for his workmanship in us - He makes no mistakes!

For you created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
When I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
Your eyes saw my unformed body. (Psalm 139:13-16)

Check out the Girlfriends in God devotions. You will find a link under my favorite sites. And stay tuned for my first giveaway!

21 weeks and growing


WOW this pregnancy is flying by! With each pregnancy it seems to go faster and faster. When you are busy chasing after two kiddies there is no time to think or day dream. ;) Our baby boy is becoming more active in his snug home, and I love every minute of feeling him jump and kick. Maybe he is kicking his brother and sister back because they sure are rough with me and the belly. Tyler is hysterical when you talk about there being a baby in mommy's belly. He goes to slapping my tummy...OUCH! I asked him the other day a series of questions, "Do you want a baby brother?" T says, "Yes", and then I ask, "Will you play with him?" T says "Yes", then "Will you share your room?" T replys "Yes". Then I ask, "Will you share your toys?" Again he says "Yes". I really wonder if he knows what he is agreeing to.:) Jalyn definitely gets it, but there are still cute things that come out of her mouth. She saw a picture of the baby in an ultrasound pic and pointed to a spot and said, "Is that his diaper?" Too cute! Yes, he has diapers, bottles and a paci all in his little home. I love to hear those cute comments! Aw, the innocence of a child. Last week we were at my inlaws when Jalyn and her MiMi went for a ride on the golf cart to find a wedding outside of the clubhouse. Jalyn watched them say their "vowels" and then when they kissed she asked if the bride had a baby in her belly. Ya know, because that's what comes next! ;)

Precious Booties

I think online shopping is going to break our bank! I just couldn't resist these precious booties for our new little guy on the way. And I have my eye on more! This really makes me want to learn to crochet, but I just don't know if I can find the time or the patience. Check out these cute shoes I found on Etsy from The Blushing Magpie...

Blog name

This is a work in progress, but I'm naming my blog "Sweeter Everyday". I wanted something fun, and something that relates to my life. I came up with it from the song "Everyday with You Lord". My life is sweeter with Jesus Christ, and it's sweeter because of my beautiful children. Travis makes it pretty sweet too. ;)

This is the song..

This is Jalyn singing it...

And I hope to have a new business endeavor soon that will make other lives a little sweeter as well. Stay tuned....

Prayer Request

As you know, my sister-in-law (Travis' sister, Jennifer), is pregnant with triplets. She is at home on bedrest. This week she had to go to the hospital because she was having contractions. They gave her a shot and a pill to take every 6 hours. Please keep her, Brian and their three babies in your prayers. Pray that they hold on for several more weeks at least. They need to get bigger and stronger before they try to enter the world.

Love and blessings,
