Two Guys’ Wives: Ways You Can Pray For Us

We would like to thank you for all the many ways you have prayed for us while on this journey and for your ongoing commitment to continue to pray. We need it! Most of our requests probably aren’t too different from many other women. Please pray as the Lord leads you!

Above all else, we desire to love God and others. If your time to spend praying for us is brief, you can pray to that end! If you have a few extra minutes, below are some specific areas that you can use to help guide your prayers: Continue reading “Two Guys’ Wives: Ways You Can Pray For Us”

Loving Our Neighbors

Settings—Control Center—Do Not Disturb While Driving

Is it irony that I added the Do Not Disturb While Driving function to the “control” center of my phone since the whole reason I need to use the function is due to a personal lack of it [self-control]? I first learned of this smartphone function last year but at the time I did not really see my need to utilize it. I justified my temptation to distraction by using the “talk to text” feature. I would try to only get on my phone while stopped at red lights or when there were no cars in sight on a familiar road. Obviously my smartphone (and the makers of this little device named by Time magazine as “the single most influential gadget of all time”) knows me better than I know myself since this Do Not Disturb While Driving function was preprogrammed into it!

Two Guys’ Wives

The bimonthly Sovereign Grace Church of Wilmington pastors wives meetings have commenced! Well, it’s just Michelle and I at this point but we have faith that God will be sending us other women to share in this sweet fellowship. I say “just” Michelle with extreme hesitation because frankly, if you know Michelle, you will walk away from any time spent with her encouraged and refreshed. We had been meeting once a month since settling back into the city our friendship was first established but desired to begin implementing a more frequent intentional time together for the benefit of our own souls, to the benefit of our husbands and children and to the benefit of SGCW! Of course mixed in with all the spiritual sharpening is a great deal of laughter that is inevitable when we are together – and you know as well as us that laughter is sweet medicine for the soul!

Brace Yourself! Or Should You?

I say “you” but am totally talking about ME!

Observations of those closest to us are one of the beautiful benefits of walking in fellowship with others. Recently something I do was brought to my attention that is revealing in regard to what I believe.

We (me, Aaron and our blonde entourage) were driving in the car and I made a statement in the course of our conversation that made Aaron pause. I could tell he was carefully formulating how he was going to say what he was going to say next because, well, let’s just be real, I don’t always receive stuff well right off the bat. Pride really. (That’s another blog another day though. Maybe like 100 blog posts. Or more.) He gently pointed out that I have a tendency to say things as though I am preparing for the worst. Looking back now I can see how that is so true. It’s something I have done as long as I can remember. It’s not an overt pessimistic attitude about all of life that sucks all joy out of me. No, not in an ole Eeyore kind of way. It happens more in passing statements made from time to time when speaking about the future. Which is probably why I didn’t really notice it and others may not have really noticed it (unless they have had a lot of conversations with me). Continue reading “Brace Yourself! Or Should You?”

July 2017 Update

It’s hard to believe that I (Aaron) am writing this, it seems like yesterday that we were packing our Uhaul, saying by to those we love and making our way to Louisville to begin the adventure of preparation for pastoral ministry and church planting.  It has been an experience we will never forget, and one that God will use to serve us for the rest of our lives personally and ministerially.

Testimony at SGCL

Aaron and I had the wonderful privilege of sharing our short version testimony with Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville last month. What an honor to tell of what Christ has done! Never would we have written our story the way He has…but thank God He is the author, a much better one than us!

You can listen here.

Family and ministry updates coming soon!!!

Behold

It has been too long since I (Andrea) last blogged. There has been a reason for that which I will delve into more specifically as I write this post. I hope that as I share, you will in some way be encouraged or led to pray for someone you know who is facing a tough time, and maybe reach out to them. And if nothing else comes of this post but a reminder to myself down the road when needed, then I trust I was faithful to write as the Lord led.

Last year was a year of great change. We all go through seasons of change, many times throughout our lives. It’s just the nature of life. And while I know in my heart that the way things were then and the way things are now will not always be so again…change still can wreak havoc on this mere mortal that is but dust.

Andrea’s October Update

 

As promised….here is my take on the last two months.

In summary, some days I feel like I have been donkey kicked by a pack of alpaca’s and other days I feel like I have nailed it. I spend most of my days in between…..somewhere between Roseann and June Cleaver. Continue reading “Andrea’s October Update”

August Update

The last few months have been a whirlwind, chaotic and uncertain at times, but wrapped in an abundant amount of God’s grace. Aaron and I feel so undeserving to be where we are right now, the least likely of ones to be here. We are completely overwhelmed with what we get to see God doing first hand. There are so many of you who have made this all possible with your prayers, encouragement, sacrificial giving of time or money (or a car!!!) and hospitality! I can start this update in no other way than by thanking you and giving glory to God who truly does more than we ask, think or imagine. Continue reading “August Update”
