About Us

Isaiah 58:10-11  And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness,  and your night will become like the noonday. The LORD will guide you always;  he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land  and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. 

Tough Questions

I got this question from a reader of my blog. It is a great question and one that others probably have too.

God’s Heart for the Poor – Bible Study

Scripture is full of references to God’s concern for those who are impoverished, vulnerable and oppressed.

Living a Life of Worship

Posted by on Nov 26, 2012 in Devotionals | 2 comments

This is a devotional I wrote this past week. I didn’t even think about putting it on my blog, because, I don’t know, it just seemed like a weird thing to do. But Jason read it and thought that it may bless someone out in blog world… It was a good reminder for me. I pray it is a good reminder for you too… Blessings, Kameron Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal...

Mark has been home for 3.5  months now, and it is going unbelievably well. Sarah is adjusting well with having a new baby, and is in fact really getting into playing “Mommy” with her own baby dolls.

How We Cocooned without Cocooning…

Like most adoptive parents, we attended adoption training seminars, and read many great books with well respected theories on how to prepare for and raise your adopted child. “Cocooning” is one of the most popular  methods for helping  your adopted child learn who mom and dad are, and become acclimated to their new world and family. In simple terms, cocooning is basically wiping your calendar clean and focusing on staying home/laying low with your adopted child. You don’t go to church, play dates, birthday parties, out to dinner, a friend’s house or even...

The Post I Never Wanted to Write…

Posted by on Aug 21, 2012 in Our Fight With Cancer | 4 comments

Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God, that is, for those who are called according to his purpose, all things are working together for good.” I never imagined I would use this blog to share this type of news. To reflect on these types of thoughts, fears, hopes and doubt. Truthfully, I was prepared to close down my blog, as I only really like to blog when I am in a season of spiritual and personal growth, and when I feel like my experiences may encourage someone. Apparently, such a season is upon us. My Dad, my sweet, stubborn, full of life Daddy….. has...
