2013 Run or Walk for Someone Special

Less than two weeks from today will be the 34th Annual Run or walk for Someone Special.  My family has been participating for the past four years.  It is so much fun for the whole family.  Character for kids, games, food, Chinese auctions, prizes and best of all a sense of giving back to our local community.  The funds raised helps The Arc of Jefferson and Clearfield Counties put on three separate summer day camp programs FREE for children with special needs.

My Boys go to camp and Love it!

My three older children participate as junior counselors and they have so much fun making new friends and seeing old friends year after year at camp.

If you made it this far through the blog, won't you consider making a donation to our team this year?  Any amount would be greatly appreciated and will stay 100% local to our community.

THANK YOU in advance for considering to support us!!!

Relationship Seminar at DuBois church of Christ

My family attends the DuBois church of Christ which is a very small church.  We easily make up 10% of our normal attendance.  I LOVE my church family and the fact that my children are way more educated with bible knowledge than I was at their age.  Ok Ok maybe even more educated than I even am now.  Their sponge like minds just absorb so much more than I am capable of, but my love for reading the bible and desire to be a good person drives me to continue studying as much as I can.

Somedays with a family as large as ours and the chaos that we endure with the twins special needs I find myself putting off the Word by tending to tasks that consume my day, literally. I have easily found myself sliding into a pattern of putting off today what I can do tomorrow and then end up never doing it.  I have started a many bible studies that sit unfinished and unread.  I have a daily devotion book that every year I choose as a New Years resolution, to just make sure that I start my day off reading this five minute devotion... and I find that I am five days behind all the time and have to play catch up.  I often have really good intentions of doing good works to only find myself in another unpredictable family situation that again takes over my time and energy. Its hard to get five kids ready and off to church on time for church services.  Excuses Excuses.

One thing that has always and will always be very important to me is relationships.  I love my family more than I can put into words.  I honestly only have a handful of friends, but the ones that I do have I value more than any worldly possession I could ever buy.  I love the Lord and I want to become closer to Him by gaining an understanding of how he wants a Christian to follow the example given by his son Jesus.

“A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian… and most of all, his family ought to know.”  ~ D. L. Moody

DuBois church of Christ is hosting a "Relationship Seminar" on Saturday, March 23rd from 9am to 2pm.  I am really excited to listen in on a topic that is so important to me.  I want to invite any and all of my local readers to come on out and join us as we learn how to strengthen relationships.  I am attaching the flier from church for more information.  Hope you'll join me!!!
