Eight is Great, Isaiah!

Some fun at the amusement park. Isaiah relishes an early lead over Grace and Eli.

Add your own Star Wars blaster sound effects.

Now let's learn how to blow-out a birthday cake, Isaiah-style.

Get set.

Cherish the moment.

Inhale calmly.

Let it rip!

Happy Birthday!

Be moved by prayer again

Matthew Henry (1662-1714) is most famous for his commentary on the whole Bible. But his book of prayers, A Method for Prayer, has proven to me to be an equally valuable resource. If you've worn out your copy of The Valley of Vision (another much loved book of Puritan prayers) here is a fresh spring in which to refresh your soul.

I first heard of the book throuh this website which I used regularly for at least a year.

But the book has much more content and can more easily be made part of your devotion time.

Church is like eating at home

Church is like eating at home with your family. But many think it's like eating at a restaurant, and that's why they can't be satisfied...

Southern Utah

We spent the long weekend making good memories at Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. Some pictures, in no particular order.

Zion National Park
"The Narrows" of Zion where the Virgin River has carved out a slot canyon
Bryce Canyon's HooDoos
This tunnel was one of Zeke's favorite features of the vacation. Constructed in the 1930s, it was quite the engineering marvel of the day. It stretches over a mile long with several galleries (large "windows") that present stunning views of Zion's peaks.
