Oh my gosh, this picture made me laugh out loud. He is just the cutest baby and looks so big sitting there. Need to see him soon. ;-)

I recently watched a live feed of Ravi Zacharias addressing an audience at the University of Pennsylvania (university audiences can frequently be difficult, to say the least). Ravi's presentation was a perfect example of Colossians 4:6. No matter how pointed or difficult the question his demeanor was always gracious. He certainly manifested the fragrance of Christ.

Great post! That's a lesson the Father has been teaching me the past couple of years.

So glad you are doing monthly updates so we can all keep up with this hunk of love! Sounds like y'all are all having a blast as a family :)

I've been waiting for you to post! Looks like motherhood is fitting you well:):) Deacon is such a beautiful baby. Excited to hear about your journey in motherhood (and I pray it's not as emotional as it has been for me;). Love you both!! Hope to see you soon!

9. Nana - 01/20/2014 6:43 pm CST

You're a great mommy. Some things will come naturally and some you will learn as you go along. But babies are very forgiving. And so much FUN!

Our church would have adult Sunday School one quarter according to age. Then the next quarter it would be according to subject or book of the Bible. When I was a young adult I enjoyed being in with the senior citizens in Sunday School. I learned more then. The classes according to age was (SYI) Share Your Ignorance! Now we have visitors from India, Korea, and other countries and I can't understand their English. Any suggestions on better communication? :-)

Praying the stretch marks stay away for you! I was completely free and clear until like week 32. It was crazy weird. They started popping up everywhere. Also, your belly button might just flatten. That's what mine did. Not sure my belly button will ever be the same. Haha. Pregnancy is awesome!! :wink:

In my opinion what we need in the Church is more prayer. When my son was in Jr. High and my daughter was in college I began praying with a group of women through Mom's in Prayer, (formerly Moms in Touch.) God has blessed us with support for one another and clear work in the lives of our children. I'm praying with them for my grandchildren now. God is faithful if we just ask.:wink:

27. Erin Byers - 07/29/2013 9:02 am CDT

I absolutely LOVE the updates!

I know this is totally cliche, but you really are glowing! You look even more gorgeous! I am so, so happy for the two of you!

and my dyslexic placement of "own your" makes me cringe and has given me nightmares.

Great work. In our storying series, we spoke of Abraham this morning. I am delighted to hear own your tale as you near fatherhood. Sacrificing, being totally His and trusting His plans are instances when God sees humanity as in right standing with Himself. This is a daily thing and I love your honesty. Thanks for sharing J-Will.

i've never eaten a turnip, so i have no frame of reference there! why did it have to be vegetables?!

Very cute picture, Danielle! One night right before Annabel was born, James was too excited to sleep deeply and asked me why I kept getting up to go to the bathroom during the night. I couldn't believe that was the first time he had noticed! At least one of us was sleeping soundly. :)

34. Molly - 06/28/2013 2:09 pm CDT

Love this!! Such a great idea! How often are you gonna post? And girl... Once you try full-panel maternity jeans... You will never go back. I still wear a skinny jean pair from old navy. Glory. And love the shout out to the 4am pee. It'll come back... Except add midnight and 2am in there :p haha that's what it was like for me the last couple weeks...

commenting on I Don't Get It

It's a scary day when each person is their own authority.

Exactly. Like Romans 3... "Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes."

commenting on I Don't Get It

Everyone, thanks to science, has to acknowledge that it is taking a life. Since this is pretty well-known, the issue now is whose life do we value more - the mother's or the baby's? It's disguised now as freedom to live our lives. But in doing so, we ignore all the laws we have that limit our freedoms when others are at danger. (like driving as fast as you want...you don't have the freedom to do that) Anyway - if it's convenient for me, that's all that matters. I don't get how pro-abortionists don't see that that's the underlying issue.

Or maybe they do and it's just not convenient?

Yes! But Linus couldn't have memorized all of that. haha

38. Jakub - 10/12/2012 8:18 am CDT

in Matthew 10:22, And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. To reiman faithful is essential. Paul said of Demas in 2 Timothy 4:10, for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and has departed for Thessalonica The most difficult thing to do is reiman faithful to Christ. It WILL take sacrifice. Will you make the sacrifice and forsake worldly things? Luke 14:33, So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.

Love this!! I agree whole-heartedly with all of them (well, the paint one doesn't really apply to us) but especially number 4 (about the plans - that was one of the hardest things for Joey to adjust to because he also had lived by myself for a long time) and 8 (the one about birthdays).

We have GOT to get together as couples! ;)

Congrats to you both! Your list made me smile, I'm glad you get to experience the "joys" of married life. And Danielle is perfect for you. ;-)
