Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all our friends and family!
We wanted to introduce you to the biggest thing that happened this year - Eric wrote and self-published a book called Leading Well at Home: How Husbands and Fathers Can Biblically Lead Their Families and started a ministry called Entrusting the Faith. Please take a minute to browse the website to learn about the ministry and even watch some video/listen to podcasts hosted by Eric.
Rachel spent the year homeschooling Kate (Freshman), Jill (8th grade) and Caleb (4th grade). She has enjoyed learning more about Italian, the Civil War and re-learning Algebra! She also wants to apologize for not paying attention to the cropping on our Christmas Tree photo card - the star on the top of the tree got cut off. She is trying to let go of perfectionism and sent the cards out anyway. =) And thank you to Nate Brown and family for the beautiful pictures!!
Kate is now a freshman in High School. She is a beautiful dancer - taking classes in ballet (on pointe) and contemporary. She continues to wow us with her drawing abilities and we love hearing her play the piano. Most of all, we are so thankful for her love for Jesus and her passion for prayer.
Jill is in 8th grade. She was Ariel in The Little Mermaid in February and did a stellar job! She continues to amaze us with her voice, her discernment and the love she has for Jesus and her friends. She has a beautiful gift of encouragement and like her brother and sister makes our days bright and joyful!
Caleb is growing in wisdom and stature. He is very excited to be only a couple inches away from passing up his Mom. He loves everything Lego, Nerf, Xbox and Nintendo. He was on the verge of starring in Aristocats, the musical as Berlioz when COVID shut down the production. Along with all of us, he has grown in his ability to deal with disappointment this year. He enjoys family games and loves to make us all laugh. We are thankful for the work we see God doing in his life!
We hope this finds you all looking for the LOVE, JOY and HOPE that only Jesus can give.
Blessings to you all,
Eric, Rachel, Kate, Jill & Caleb
