Coming Soon

Almost two weeks ago our family was blessed with special visitors. Stepping out of the Boat
took a huge step of faith and drove her 5 children and husband down to stay the week to help. So that a made a total of 16 people all living together. It was purposeful chaos. It was awesome. I loved her. I loved her children and her husband was the most laid back guy I have ever met. Why was it a step of faith for them. Well... We have never met before. I know shock! Right? It wasn't until we were talking about how cool it was while our children were listening did it dawn on us. Hmmm. Is this something we would want our kids to do? We had a great time explaining that one to all the listening ears who were like, "You mean you met online". Yes we did. Not the smartest idea I guess, but definitely the best idea. About three months ago we started talking on the phone everyday. She knows more about me than people that have known me for years. I love this woman. Anyway back to the original reason for this blog post. The kids. Our kids hit it off. While Stepping out of the Boat was helping me with the twins her husband and our combined kiddos were hard at work making a movie. After hours of my oldest son editing it we are ready to share the masterpiece. Well almost. My son thought showing the trailer to peak your interest would be the way to go. Enjoy.

This is wonderful. I need to get you the movies Adam and Jay made as ninja warriors when they were kids. Maybe you can edit something together with your kids...oh my gosh! I am tickled that Laura was able to help, that the kids hit it off so beautifully and that you all had such a good time.

Lesson about meeting online...hmmm, topic for another discussion!

Love how the blogging world can become so personal so fast. Especially when it's God that knits our hearts together.

So glad she took the chance and visited. :D

Jace! Amazing job on the editing! I'm really impressed. P.S. You are so the next Harry Potter.

I am so shocked that you had never met. I just assumed you were old friends. What an amazing way that God brings us together with people that we need in our lives.

He knows all the details.
