Kelsie Newby

21 09 2008

Kelsie Newby raised her hand tonight at prayer to pray for the people who’s lives will be touched and changed with the upgrade to our building.  As soon as Pastor Micah called her name my wife turned to me and said “she is the perfect person to pray for that.”, and I agree.  I remember meeting Kelsie for the first time at the rocky horror picture show.  We talked about the bag of rice in my hand and what you can make with Duct tape.  It was a great conversation…really.  Not too long after that she started coming to 247 with us and really becoming apart of the church.  Eventually she gave her life to Christ and she has been changing lives ever since.  She is now a team leader for the alter ministry and doing a great job.  She has already recruited two people in the past 2 months she has been a TL.  And when I talk to her about the people who just gave their lives to Christ you can really see that she is excited for them and absolutely loves them.  She is an inspireation to alot of people…even if she doesnt know it.  And I am happy to call her my friend.  She is a beautiful woman of God and I am excited to see what else God is going to do through her.

Thanks Kelsie for doing what you do.  I love you.

1,2,3 My Daughter is the Best

16 09 2008

Check it out!  I have the cutest daughter ever made on the face of the planet…sorry everyone but it does not get any better than this.





Smile Charlotte…Smile

21 08 2008

The other morning Charlotte woke me up…well Jennifer brought Charlotte in to wake me up.  So Charlotte laid down next to me.  She was so happy to see me that she started to smile, and not just a little bit.  This was not gas as some people may be thinking.  So I picked up my phone and started to film.

Lately she has been smiling on purpose alot more.  That makes me happy to know that  when my daughter sees me she is happy.  I asked Jennifer if she smiled at her a lot…”No…not that much” she said with out a smile and the stink eye.





What a Great Family!

4 08 2008

Well, officially I am back from my “paternal” leave but I dont go back into the office until tuesday.  I have had a great time with my family and experianceing the begining of this new stage of my life.  Thanks again to everyone who has prayed for us and helped us out the past two weeks.  It would have been much…MUCH harder to get through it.  Its great to know that I have such a great family @ Living Word.  Also to Jenn and I’s moms thank you for spending some nights with us in the begining.  We would still be sleep deprived if you had not stayed with us.

Stay Cool!

Stay Cool!

Jennifer

18 07 2008

Going through this experiance helped me to realize something.  I am so in love with my wife.  She is everything I have ever wanted in someone to spend the rest of my life with.  I knew it when I asked her to marry me…started to understand it when we were married and every day since then the love that I have for her gets more and more real.  These past days I have really been able to know her more, and see the strength on the inside of her.

Jennifer, I love you.

We Clicked our Heals 3 Times…

18 07 2008

…and now we are back home.  No nurses to call on (or come storming in your room at 3am to take blood from your baby), Just us.  Thank you to everyone who was praying for us.  Who knows what we would have gone through if it wasnt for the prayers.  To everyone who is involved in takeing care of us by bringing food, and just being there…Thank you.

And so it begins…not sure of the details but I know Charlotte will be a fine woman of God, a true “Warrior Princess”  I love you Charlotte Elizabeth Tobler.

I have waited a long time for this day.
