A sleep filled night!

Answering with Sleep

All parents know that sleep is at a premium when you have a baby. When you have two babies, sleep is priceless! Unfortunately, that often means it is out of our price range.

However, the Lord poured out his mercy on Deedra and myself on Saturday night. For the first time in their short lives, both Cohen and Lily slept for 6 hours at the same time. Praise the Lord!

We have yet to experience a similar night since then, but that one night came at point when both Deedra and mine faith was at a low point. We know the Lord loves us and hears our cries, but on Saturday night we had hit a wall. We went to bed praying for the Lord to give us more faith to believe, to trust, to love. He answered by not waking us up!

How good is our God who hears our prayers, who answers us even in the most trying times; whatever those times might be. I hope the encouragement that God gave us on Saturday night will be an encouragement to you. We know and love a God who is near, who hears his children, who answers prayers, and who shows us how much he loves us by sending his Son to die in our place. Praise be to him indeed!

Partnering with Prayer

I posted last Friday requesting your partnership in prayer for Christ City Church (our church plant). If you have not done so already, please consider partnering with us to lift up the work God has called us to.

You can join our prayer team by simply sending a email with your name to partner2pray@christcitychurchdallas.org.

What You Have Been Waiting For

Below are some family pictures depicting what we have been up to the last few months. Cohen & Lily are growing so fast!

As always, thank you for joining us on our journey. We are so grateful for your prayers and support. God bless!


Thank you to my sister Samantha for taking most of our pictures. Just one of the ways she has blessed our family!

This was taken at a park just down the road from our home in Seattle. While we are glad to be back in TX, you can see what we are missing!

They are almost bigger than the dolls. So close!

This Cohen’s first drink! We started them on solid foods last month, and I think we may have created little eating monsters!

This is Lily’s new favorite sleeping position. I have to say, it may be mine too!

Yes, this is Cohen. And, yes, I did make them remove that pink hat immediately!

Isn’t she just so darn cute, praise the Lord!
