'The Bible tells me so'

this is currently Brody's favorite line of any song. he sings it ALL THE TIME, and it just makes me melt. what if we had not been brave enough for this journey? what if we had thrown in the towel when it got hard? what if we had never taken those first few steps in obedience? and what if God hadn't worked miracle after miracle to bring the finalization of his adoption to fruition?

 Brody might never have sung "Jesus loves me, this I know" and, more importantly, he might never have known the love of a Heavenly Father without the example of his earthly father. he now hears "Daddy loves you" every day. EVERY DAY. and he is beginning to understand what that means and that God's love for him is even greater than the love his earthly daddy has for him.


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE this and your sweet family. So encouraged by your example of obedience and trust.

  2. thanks bekah! we sometimes aren't as obedient as we'd like, but we are learning that it's worth it even if it's scary!!
