Precious memories I have from Disney…I love these photos and I love these kids. I feel so grateful to have had this trip with them. It was wonderful to see their tanks so full every day. Each morning we talked about all the surprises God would have for them that day. Each day we […]
Resolve and Father’s Day.
I love this word! Resolve and discipline is something my dad and my Father in Heaven have often told me are so important in life. My dad was so very disciplined and had so much resolve. I remember seeing his eyes squint and his furrow tighten before he would go on a long run or […]
He is Risen Indeed.
THIS Easter, I think I feel a NEW depth of what Christ has done for me, in His incredible act of love on the cross. The weather has been beautiful these past few weeks…really gorgeous weather…there is new life springing up all around us…such beautiful flowers…beautiful blossoms. I am asking Him for NEW LIFE through Him […]
Happy New Year 2014!!!
I love New Year’s resolutions…really, I do…I know I have no power to carry through my own resolutions, but I know God does…and this year I sensed Him speaking one in particular to me. I like that God is a planner…He makes a plan and then brings it to fruition. He is so faithful…and so […]
Tinklepaugh Christmas 2013…

He is teaching me to love him more than anything (obedience, meeting a certain standard of behavior or schooling, etc)…and I feel so blessed to love him and to be […]
Hannah banana is 2!
Doesn’t she look a bit like an angel in this photo? As I stare at it tonight, I see the little princess God gave us with much Grace….all the prayers He so faithfully answered. Hannah in particular, I prayed over during pregnancy. Lewis came 7 weeks early, so I was really trusting and praying to […]

After experiencing so many special days away from each other…we are truly happy to have those days together now…even if only for a little bit of […]
