This is a guest post by Matt and Karissa Long. The difference between the two is just a little plastic tube. Recently I (Karissa) got the opportunity to go snorkeling in the ocean. I got to see beautiful coral reefs and fish I’d only seen in aquariums. It was an experience, but I can’t say […]
Here’s just a few random pictures from our trip to the capital city. I usually don’t like trips because they are usually just chaotic, but this one was different.

As we close out 2016, we wished to share our family’s Christmas with you. It’s been a good month of seeing family, friends, and celebrating the birth of our Lord!
I nearly had an emotional breakdown in Farm & Fleet. Don’t worry, to save face for men everywhere, I held it together. If you’ve been following our journey, you know that we moved from Waukesha, WI to the Elkhart, IN area about 6 months ago. When we lived in Waukesha, I would often run errands […]
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Thankful: Here in America it is “that time of year;” our Thanksgiving holiday is only a week away! We are truly THANKFUL for each one of you who are part of our lives and the […]
