children and two grandchildren. Charity and I went
back to seminary and both
finished with a MA in counseling in 2005. Charity also graduated from law school
in 1999. Our youngest child is 13. The others are grown. We home schooled all
seven of our children. Five > have finished college, two from law school, one
an MA in professional writing, one a BA in psychology, an one a BA in economics.

prayer is that you will be blessed and find hope and security in the Lord Jesus
My favorite and most assuring Bible verse is Ephesians 2:8-9.
( For by grace you have
been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
not a result of works, so that no one may boast. )
