Family math

I know I was a factor.
Jeff was too.

Our product?


Jan 95

16 years old today!

I thank God for multiplying the joy in our family by adding Jenna to it. She’s brought us laughter, excitement, maturity...and exponents of love.Nov 96

Many factors go into raising a family.
   * Decisions to make.
   * Activities to choose.
   * Friendships to nurture. factors and products

The only way to survive whole is through prayer. Without God in the equation, how could parents do it well?

Because for every multiplication fact, there are two possible divisions facts. The divisors are numerous: selfishness, laziness, lust, pride,....Dec 04
We need God’s grace to subtract them out.

What you do and say has an effect not only on you, but also on the product you create.

Never underestimate the power of factors on your products.

Be wise.
Choose God.
Pray often.

And thank him for the way he multiplies!

Happy Birthday, Jenna!

I love you!

She is beautiful and sweet (and her comment...I love it!).

I love your math metaphor here, Lisa (and believe me I don't like math). It is an equation indeed -- and God is the biggest factor.

I loved your tribute to Jenna and I'd say an added tribute to you and Jeff and all of your beautiful family.

Ann's post today was also a beauty.
