I got the absolute joy last night of watching my baby brother, his sweet girlfriend, my grandma, and another family member be baptized last night. I sat there amazed at how God works, remembering getting baptized with my middle brother and my dad when our church was still young, and thinking of my husband being… Continue reading Baptisms!
Hi friends, Wanted to give you another update on the Barker household. This is the 7th week of my migraine (no, there has been no reprieve, at all, yes that means I have had one migraine the whole time, seven weeks).

God spoke through him to His people. As Samuel became older, his sons became judges over Israel. And they were a… Continue reading Rejecting The King
So, this is happening at our house. Although this has been sooo frustrating, it’s cracking me up. I do not understand how my one year old out wits me every second of every day. You could ask her a million questions with NO as the reply, and then say do you want to go to… Continue reading My Toddler’s Favorite Word.
