My Little Heroes.

They usually always have smiles to share!
They love church
I would like to introduce you to three of my little heroes. As you have probably already guessed they are my kids. They are a blessing to Marty and I and it has been a joy to be called mamma by my kids for 7 years! 

At times it can be challenging raising kids, mainly because they are too much like their mamma and daddy. :) I try to remember that they are just kids! There is really never a dull moment in our house.    So here are my little heroes in action.  

Psalm 127:3a "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord:"

They have been a great source of encouragement for me. Whenever I need  smile our a hug they are always willing to share. They are some of the toughest people I know, they traveled most of their lives on deputation, then left their friends and family with not a complaint in the world! They love their Arctic home. They do get homesick every once in a while, but who wouldn't!

He likes Buzz Lightyear, like his Daddy!
Elijah,7 is a goofy little boy, with a really big heart! 
Please remember to pray for your missionaries kids, they go through the same homesickness that the adults do, they miss things that are familiar to them. Just a little card from home makes their day! I'm not just saying this just for our family, look at your missionaries at your church and take time to pray for the kids by name, it can make all the difference in the world!  
Maryanna,6, is our Princess. She is a diva, but has an awesome personality!  

She loves to play, and she's our "little Mamma"

Eryn,4 1/2, is our artist, she loves to draw.

She might be only 3 feet tall but she has a personality 10 feet high!
She might be small but she can hold her own!


  1. I enjoyed reading about your kids. They are so precious. I am so thankful that your family has been so faithful to surrendered your lives to what God has for you. Thank you for your faithfulness. There are people being able to be led to Christ by you and your family. Thank you. Love y'all-Courtney Martin

  2. Very well said!! We love you guys!
