Summer Fun!

This is just a little pictorial journal of the fun my husband, my son, and I have had together so far this summer:

My son & I went backpacking with family in Ojai, CA.

We all took a road trip up to Yosemite National Park.

We accompanied our Youth Group to Hume Lake

Christian Camps for their annual summer camp.

We rented a beach house (& a 15 passenger van)

in Oxnard, CA. with 3 other couples for a week.


We have also just been enjoying the summer sun in

our backyard in southern California.

All-in-all, I would have to say that it has been a pretty awesome summer so far! We have been blessed beyond measure and count it a joy to boast in our Lord’s immense goodness toward us. We don’t deserve any of it, but He is so good to allow us to enjoy such temporal happiness! 🙂

Well, the summer is not over yet. In fact, our last trip will be coming up in the next couple of weeks. We are taking part in a short-term missions trip in the Philippines. My husband is scheduled to teach some of the local Pastors near Manilla, the capital city. Please pray for our safety and the Lord’s blessing upon our work there. May He be honored!


About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.
