The Redemption of Henry Myers Official Trailer

Here is the official trailer of the movie Daniel got to intern on last summer, and Emily and I got to be extras in. It should be coming out in theaters soon!

Below are some photos I took while on set.

This is the sheriff in the movie, during a bad wind storm.

My niece, Kelsey, was an intern.

Here is Daniel, aka, Danny, on the job.

My nephews (on the left) interned as well.

Biblical Manhood (Paul Washer)

Our family has been listening to an inspiring series on Biblical Manhood by Paul Washer. So far, it is SO good! We have only been listening to the MP3 audio, but I found the videos online, so I thought I'd share them with you. The first part is entitled What a Man is Not. Real manhood has been lost in America today.The second part is Are You Ready for a Relationship? Here he discusses how you must earn the right to have a relationship with a daughter of God. We haven't listened to the last part yet, so I can't recommend it, but if it is like the first two, it will be great! The third part is talking about A Young Man's Attitude Towards Women. Young women are not to be treated like one of your guy friends.

Take a night per lesson and listen, pray and discuss what  you hear. You may not agree with every detail spoken of, but I bet you'll learn and grow from these. Enjoy!

My Flowers and Veggies

 I love that the Morning Glories climbed up our tiki torches. It just may make them hard to light!
 This white Butterfly Bush planted itself. 
 I planted this tiny little rose early in the spring, but the dog sat on it and I thought, killed it. I planted squash in the flower garden on either side of where it had been, and look, it grew back! 
 Purple Lantana amongst the squash plants.
 Zebra Zucchini and Summer Squash.
 Piracantha (spelling?) Bush.
 Purple Butterfly Bush.
 Pumpkin flower.
 Ugly wire fencing to keep dogs out. :)
 Marigolds planted around veggie beds.
 Yellow Cherry Tomatoes.
 The first of my red tomatoes.
 The first mellon! So cute!
Morning Glory mixed in the Cosmos.

Growing Up

My son has grown up. He started out as this tiny, sweet little thing, always sucking on his fingers. 
 Then he grew into the boy that was like the labrador retriever puppy- always knocking things over and overly excited to do anything with anybody.
Now he is a high school graduate. He worked hard and overcame many obstacles. 
 I am very proud of the young man he has grown into. I love you, Nicholas! Congratulations!

Sift together:
3 1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp ground cloves

In large bowl, beat until light and fluffy:

Beat in:
2 C cooked or canned pumpkin

Now add the dry ingredients in three additions alternately with:
2/3 C water or milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Do not over-beat between each addition. Fold in:
2 C coarsely chopped nuts (slivered almonds are good) opt.

Pour batter into two greased loaf pans, lined with wax paper on the bottom, and sprinkle tops with cinnamon-sugar.
