Date my hubby? What's that?

Of course I like spending time with him on a day to day basis, but with young children, and the adventures of off grid living an hour from town, dates haven't exactly been high on the priority list. Unless you can count the nightly "ahh" moment when the children finally are asleep. Having the reminder (and deadline!) to make time for each other seemed like a great idea...

My friends, Jesus is calling.

In a way that I cannot deny, Jesus has called me to embrace a new ministry role and a new beginning in a new location. We did not seek this call and therefore repeatedly tested it with the Lord seeking confirmation. He provided that confirmation with incredible clarity and consistency...

Every year, on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, SBC hangs heart-shaped prayer requests that have been printed out by our SBC Kids and hung from the ceiling in the foyer. Our church foyer looks beautiful and seeing the hearts reminds us to love and to pray for the kids God has given to our church family...

We were on our way to Vancouver anyways so we decided to stop in at Harrison’s Hot Springs and do our date night there. We had a few goals: Keep it under $25 of course, soak it up in some hot springs and find a waterfall to explore...

At SBC we love and welcome kids and we hope it shows. Whether your kids are 2 weeks old or graduating high school, we consider it a privilege and responsibility to have them entrusted to us for any of our events.

Our Sparks girl’s club is an opportunity to spend time with the girls from our church family as well as the community. Every year a huge highlight for both the girls and us as leaders is Father Daughter night and this year was no exception...

Greetings from Mexico!

The ministry is finally underway and the travel is now behind us. We had uneventful airport stops, flights and border crossings. Things went very smoothly and we arrived in San Diego for our first day! We had the chance to swim in the ocean, walk the beach, go for seafood and get to bed early for a great sleep...
