We have some BIG news ! .
I announced on my Facebook page earlier this week about our exciting news, and wanted to share with my Pure Sweat Project family too!🎉🎊
How we have prayed for this gift coming August 25th. How we have strengthened our faith in God waiting for this blessing.
We experienced an early loss back in the fall that was painful, even if it was super early after finding out we were expecting. It may have felt like a short time in the dark ...
How fear and doubt can creep in with a sting, but the faithfulness of my Lord is stronger and these were the lyrics to a song I set my mind on for months :
. “Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness,
I'm still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You never failed me yet
I've seen You move, come move the mountains
And I believe, I'll see You do it again
You made a way, where there was no way
And I believe, I'll see You do it again”
We are grateful, excited and ready to bring another sweet one onto this team Amilian ! 💛
The battle between me and my willpower begins in 3, 2, 1. Also, this photo might be the only proof that these cookies ever even existed. #thinmints#widebodies#fullhearts
A stainless steel spoon that cooked for countless church meals, generations of kids, and everyone from any where- my Grandma cooked with her heart for all to enjoy. I pray that this old spoon of her’s passes some type of that specialness she had in her food into my own dishes and I can share that in turn. #fullbellies#fullhearts
There is no greater role for me on this earth than being a husband to Bonnie and a father to these amazing little girls. With each day that passes, I am continually amazed by the fact that I fall deeper and deeper in love with them all. I never thought that I would be this happy as a father… Of course I thought I would be happy, but not THIS happy! I am so honored to serve my wife and our children and I am forever humbled that God has entrusted us with this mission. I won the galactic lottery when I became Bonnie’s partner on this journey and I am completely convinced that she is the absolute greatest woman in the world. This is our Tribe. #godalwaysprovides#sharewhatsgood#familyman#familyiseverything#proudpapa#communitybuilders#fullhands#fullhearts#heybigbro
• Week of Service Day 5 • On our last day of Week of Service, a group of our sisters visited the Mid-South Food Bank. We enjoyed packing these boxes knowing they will be going towards a good cause. Along with that, several members and alumnae made food donations, and these donations were delivered to the Tiger Pantry! We love serving and we will continue to give ourselves to service! Just because Week of Service is over does not mean that we will stop contributing to service. A special thanks to @paige_darnell99 and the places we visited for making this week a successful one! #FightingHunger#FullPlates#FullHearts#FullMinds
PARENTING // Sometimes I want to put on cruise control and not do the hard work of parenting. Is there an auto pilot button somewhere?! Nope. Shepherding little hearts is like plowing a field in spring so you can see a harvest in summer. And with the hope of harvest you beg God for rain to provide all they need — the things impossible for you to provide— to grow. There is dirt under my nails as I lean in to my part and the rest I surrender to Him. Out of diapers and into this territory of middle years between toddler and teen, I’m learning to pray and trust like never before. •
What are your favorite parenting books or resources that have helped you cultivate little hearts? #parenting#itsnojoke#fulldays#fullhearts

We found out that we would be using our boy name, Caleb James.
You were set right on my chest and got a good first meal. You have been filling our hearts with joy, our home with laughter, and our praises to God with even greater gratitude.
A promise and a gift that keeps on giving. We love you, sweet boy.
Caleb - “follows God wholeheartedly”
