What are you?

I am ready a book that is rocking my world. One of the questions it asked is, When you walk in a room do you think:

"Here I am?"

or

"There you are?"

Which one do you think you are? Most the time I am the first but I want to be the second one!

Weekend Away


We are back from the lake and let me tell you it was a blast. WE DID NOTHING!!! Nothing with my three boys is the best time in the world a women could ask for. I wish we could have stayed for a month=) The boys took baths in a huge bath tub, Nathan thought they where swimming!

Thursday's at home!

The Knox Family is off to Grand Lake for the Weekend! Our Life Group leaders have a great lake house and let us use it to get away and spend time with just the four of us. (have I mentioned I love our Life Group)

We had SWITCH last night it was wonderful! 405 students and 15 salvation's! The youth team rocked it out. The youth band was on fire!!!

Today is the first day of NO Mothers Day Out. I think I like the idea of a "stay at home mom" means to "stay home", not to say we cant leave the house, the boys and I just need to spend more then 30 minutes a day out the house when we are a wake. This is really hard for me because I love to be out and doing something ALL the time.

That brings me to my question how much time do you spend at home a day that you are a wake?

Easter Egg Scramble

This is Tim, Nicole wanted me to blog about our family today. Today the Knox Family went on our first ever Easter Egg Hunt to Hafer Park. Nathan's 3 and he is the perfect age to hunt plastic eggs in an open field with other toddlers. We had plans to stop by Target and pick up Easter Egg Baskets, but before getting the baskets we wanted to see how many people were at the park. An hour before the hunt was supposed to start there were so many people already at the park that we decided to not to get baskets and just use the Randy' M&M in our car. We parked the car and the boys were so excited to hunt eggs they could barely wait. There were so many people that we just followed the crowd without knowing where we were going. We ended up standing behind an orange rope with thousands of other people waiting for the signal to start hunting eggs. I had to hold Nathan back, he was so excited to pick up the eggs. As the announcer said it "go" you would have thought there was $100 in each egg. It was a mad dash with elbows flying. The toddlers just watched as their parents ran through the grass picking up as many eggs as possible like they were in the Olympic Games. Nathan stood there in the middle as adults ran by him, barely missing him. I didn't realize that the sign that said "Easter Egg Hunt for Birth - 5 years" really meant "Easter Egg Hunt for the Parents of Birth - 5 years". Nathan was able to pick up a few eggs during the stampede. We left with 3 whole eggs, several halves, and an experience we won't forget. Fortunately Easter is about so much more that eggs, bunnies, and nice clothes. This was a great reminder to for us as parents to be intentional about teaching our kids the reason we celebrate Easter.

Zoo





Today we all went to the ZOO, we love going and seeing the animals and playing on the play ground. Nathan and Micah were not very happy today but Tim and I had a great time! This weekend Tim is working a lot since it is Easter weekend. We know that a lot of lives will be changed. Who are you inviting to church this weekend? We are going to invite our McDonald's friends that we see at least once a week=) We are going to the BIG Easter Egg hunt in Edmond tomorrow afternoon, it should be fun!!!

Life Group


I just love our Life Group. We have all been together for 3 years. When we had Nathan 3 years ago we went to the Lifechurch.tv web-site to find a Life Group where we did not know anyone. So we went to Life Group and have been there ever since. Tonight we had family night with the kids and went to the park and had a picnic. One of the best times we have had with Life Group was going to Pheonix and starting a Lifechurch.tv there. What are neat things that you do with your Life Group?

Mothers Day Out




Today was Nathan and Micah's last day at Mothers Day Out. We decided to take them out and spend more time with them. If you would have asked me to do this a month ago I would have said "there is NO way I need my Thursdays for me." Don't get me wrong I do think we need time alone, but the Lord has been teaching me a lot about "my time". I am really looking forward to our new chapter. Nathan is already 3 and Micah is 17 months old, they grow up to fast. Look at them they look just like their HOT daddy!!!

SWITCH

SWITCH is the the youth ministry that Tim and I serve at. (its also Tim's job). Last Wednesday we had 464 students at SWITCH. We grew 50% in 2 weeks and had 10 new leaders. People keep asking us "What did you do?" The truth is we did nothing!!!

The neat thing is Tim's mom my mother in-law called me two Wednesday nights ago and had me pray a verse over Tim Psalms 78:72 "David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them." How awesome is that, to have a mother praying for you when you are 28, also The Lord telling her that something big was going to happen.

Every Wednesday night Tim and I still get nerves after 8 years of doing youth ministry. We love what we do and we love to see students know that there is a God that loves them even when they feel there is NO one out there that gets them.

Free Van

Saturday, November 03, 2007


As many of you know my car broke down 3 weeks ago and we have had one car. To add to the stress we have been getting medical bills every other day! When my car broke down Tim told me that we are going to pray that the Lord gives us a FREE van. So we did for 3 weeks. While we are praying our Life Group tells us we need to have a garage sale and they are going to give us stuff to sale. At first we are like no someone else might need it, plus with Tim working all the time we did not want to take the time to get ready to have a garage sale. Yesterday we are getting ready for the garage sale and I tell Tim I need a nap, like always he says, "that's a good idea"! At 3:30 there is someone at the door, Tim comes running into my room and says "SOMEONE JUST GAVE US A VAN"!!! We ran out side and there was our new van. They told Tim it is more of a blessing to be a blessing. I just started to cry and cry. God really gave us a Van and not just any van, a van that Tim and Nicole could never go buy. So we did have the garage sale today and cant wait to be a blessing to someone else with this money. How could we not serve the Lord I keep asking myself? If anyone every needs a ride I am here for you!!

First One

Well today is my first blog, I am a little scared because everyone I read is SO good at this. Today Tim and I took the boys to see ELMO Live! We had a wonderful time. I looked over at my three boys and thought how in the world do I deserve to be so blessed. I am married to my best friend and I think he is really hot! My boys Nathan and Micah make me smile everyday (and scream). We are going on a big date tonight for FREE! Talk to you soon.
