Praying for Your Family & Friends




We all know that praying for our families is important, but sometimes it is hard to know how to do that. On today's episode, Wesley & Denise talk about some practical tips for praying for our marriage, our children, & our friends. 

We talk on this episode about making a list for your marriage, your spouse, & each of your children. Sometimes, I need an example to get my mind going!  We have created a list of 16 Prayers for Your Marriage & 16 Prayers for Your Children.  {Click the link to download or save the images below.} We hope you will use & benefit from these prayer guides for your marriage & your children. We encourage you to use these simply as a guide to help you pray. (You can even cut the page & glue the pieces together to make a bookmark!) Please personalize these & make them your own. Pray for specific things that you or your spouse need help with or that are important to you.  Make a list for each of your children & make them specific to include what things your children need help with at this moment (maybe it is attitudes or a specific health problem or behavior that needs to be corrected).  Nothing will humble you as a spouse & parent as seeing your specific prayers written out to God & realizing what role you play in helping your own marriage & children.  Be sure you make a list for yourself as well-how you can be a better spouse & parent.  Post your list where you will see it often & can pray through it throughout the day. 
We love you--Wesley & Denise

Creating a Heart of Thankfulness

November is a month that our country traditionally thinks about being thankful. As Christians, we should have a heart of thankfulness all year long. On this episode, Wesley and Denise talk about how we can create this in our children and ourselves.

Our family was blessed to travel to Oklahoma to the Legacy Family Camp last week.  Since I had over 500 pictures.....I decided not to Instagram them!  Ha ha!  Here are links to the Facebook albums. I will add them as I go.

First up, Day 1 & 2 Travel & Express Clydesdales
Legacy Family Camp-Thursday



There are some really fun videos from our trip-especially tomahawk throwing-but I cannot get them to upload directly to the blog. You can check them out on Facebook.

Samaritan Ministries Health Sharing Experience

Now that we’ve had an ER visit complete with two night hospital stay, I love Samaritan Ministries even more. See these circled totals? That’s how much our bills were (you can see the “bill total” above was before “discounts” 😳). With our Samaritan plan, we are responsible for $300 per event. Well.....when you receive any discounts, that goes towards your responsible amount. So, ER visit & 2 nights’ stay....we will be responsible for $0. Yep. $0. How does that compare to our crazy deductibles we used to have?! No comparison. It’s a hugely amazing blessing.
Here’s more info. I’d be glad to answer any questions. I know how much of a burden medical insurance & bills are & am thankful we chose this!

Estate Planning

Estate planning isn’t a topic that we really want to think or talk about, but making plans to provide for our children in the event of our death is so important. On this episode, we are joined by Attorney Charity Stubblefield to discuss what plans we need to have in place, what documents we need to have available for our families, & how to choose guardians for our children in the event of our untimely death.
The bottom photo is the table of contents to a Legacy Binder one of our friends created.  There are lots of links in the show notes, including how to make a Legacy Drawer/Binder & what to include.
