First Day of Classes Began!

So Jeremy and I began new classes on Wednesday of this week; Romans, Soteriology (The study of Salvation), and 1&2 Peter.   The first two days have been so good.   For our first assignment in Soteriology, the instructor gave us a list of verses that had the words "saved or salvation" in them and we had to decipher whether it was talking about justification, sanctification, glorification, or a physical salvation.  This was very enlightening because most of the time when I come to the word saved in the Bible; I automatically think its talking about justification.  This is not always true.  We are so excited about what God is going to teach us this semester.  Please be praying that we will be dependent on Him and get to know Him more deeply as we study His word.  We are so grateful that He is allowing us to do this.  Thanks for all of your support and encouragement.  Also be praying that the Lord will prepare us to be parents. I was 20 weeks on Monday and we had a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday.  Our doctor said that our sweet little girl seems to be developing perfectly and every looks so far so good.  Praise God!!  Love you all!  Have a good week. 
After Christmas, Christmas Dinner with New Tribes Friends!

Baby Girl and Garrett Coming to the Cheese State!!

So our Christmas break was full of fun and excitement. We were able to spend lots of quality time with family and friends in Arkansas. The main highlight of our break was that Garrett got to ride back up with us to Wisconsin and spend the week. We had such a great time together and he was able to go with us to our ultrasound and share with us the excitement of having a little girl. It was shocking to Jeremy and I when we found out it was a girl because we both felt like it was a boy, but Garrett had always said it was a girl and got to say, "I told ya so." I have downloaded some pics of our time together. We put Garrett on a plane on Saturday headed back to Arkansas. It was sad to see him go, but we were so thankful that he was able to come see us. It was so good to have family in Wisconsin with us.

19 Weeks and Counting!
It's a girl and we are so excited and a little scared.  The Lord is blessing us so much and giving us such an awesome oppurtunity and responsibility having a child.  I definitely have a bump now which is weird and cool at the same time.  Jeremy has already started reading her bible stories form this great children's story bible that Cams got for her.  Its a really good because it teaches chronologically through the bible and teaches all the redemptive stories in the old testament that are a picture of Christ.  I can not wait for her to arrive.  We are still debating about what to name her and we might wait to see what we think she looks like.  Please be praying that the Lord with prepare us to be parents and give us wisdom.  Love you guys.  Have a great week.
