Dear Young Man,
I know a lot about YOU because I was your age a few years back, and I remember it well, so listen up......Maybe you’ve been ‘interested’ in girls lately. Online, Facebook, at the beach, school, and maybe you’re interested in a sweet ‘church girl’. That’s all well and good, but I need to tell you something:
When you ‘look’ at my daughter and ‘think’ about her I want you to also ‘think’ about her Daddy. You see, I will always see her as a precious princess sitting on my lap, hearing my heartbeat as she sleeps on my chest, running into my arms as I walk through the door, giving and receiving her butterfly kisses. SHE IS A PRECIOUS PRINCESS, and I WILL ALWAYS see her this way, and so will God. She is not your ‘eye candy’ or some ‘sweet thing’ to look at. She needs to be treated with honor, with respect, and with with respect to the mother and father who raised her.
If you see her the way her mother, God and I do, then you will understand how important it is to keep your eyes and heart pure when it comes to her, to wait until your wedding day before touching her intimately. To wait until your wedding day to kiss her. Can you do that? If not, then move along, she’s not for you. If you can wait (and she‘s worth the wait), then you are on the road to being a man of honor, and only then will I consider your interest in her.
Dear Young Ladies,
You see these handsome young men? They are MINE as in I am their momma!!! Let me share something with you. When you look at my boys you see handsome, respectable young men. They are indeed just that. They are also my little boys. They always will be my little boys. They reached up for my heart and hands first. That is the way I will always view them.
Maybe you have got the bug- you know the boy crazy bug? Yep, I had it too when I was younger, but it didn't really help me. It made me long for something that really wasn't mine. You see we are helping our boys stay pure in a world that is anything but. Help us out. Please don't follow them around or ooggle over them. They need to hear how amazing they are FROM ME and their DADDY not from someone who will date them and break their hearts 2 weeks later!!!
Also, I am trying to show our boys respect for all young ladies, but when you wear those short shorts, shirts that show cleavage, dental floss bikinis, or make kissy faces on your FB feeds - YOU ARE NOT HELPING US!! Please- I know you don't always mean anything by it! I know you may want a young man to protect you and give you respect. Please go to your father or mother for those things. I know some of you don't have that- please pray that God would lead you to Himself HE can be your father figure who wants you, tells you that you are beautiful, and wants what is the absolute best for you!
When it comes to our boys I want them to remain pure and focused on being the best godly father on the planet. Hey, we have taught them to change diapers, play with younger kiddos, cook, do laundry, the whole works! I want them to feel comfortable with hanging out with their mom and dad! I want them to chase after God not short skirts or an inappropriate photo or video!!
So here is the deal. In order to have the husband YOU DESERVE we need to take a step back from what society thinks is normal. You know date tons of men/women, kiss and tell, and much more that we don't need to detail. We strive for a "hands off" approach to ladies until they find that special young lady they will marry!
Believe me ladies----- when it comes time for them to find a young lady. YOU WILL BE THANKING ME!!! You will say oh my goodness......why would I have wanted it any other way? PROMISE!!!
Believe me we joke about that often. Not because we want our children to be sheltered, but yes in a way we do!!! We want our children's innocence in tact! We don't want them concentrating on things that are not appropriate for anyone. We want them to know they whys, the hows, and the whens!! But not from a s*x happy media, but from people who have lived life and have found out our own mistakes.
Just thinking about it gives me chills. I want them to have a pure and beautiful love for their spouse that is not polluted! We have been praying since they were babies for this very thing....and we have tried our best to help them attain that!!!

Will and Holly started with Christian Adoption Consultants on January 4th! The finished their paperwork, profile, and all those home study bits and were already matched by April 30th!
May 19th this sweet face appeared and their world is forever changed!!!
Holly shares: After many many years of struggling with infertility and 7 miscarriages we still felt God wasn't done with our family. I turned to Facebook one day in January to ask how to even start a domestic adoption. I had many responses but two people strongly recommended not even starting without the help of Jason and Dawn Wright at CAC. So I checked the website out and realized we needed some help with everything!
After one phone call with Dawn I knew we were in the right hands. We started our home study right away and it was finished towards the beginning of April. Jason and Dawn did all of our paperwork and made our profile book for us! They answered ALL those questions you feel silly for asking and never thought a thing about it!
When I felt the process was long and nobody wanted us since we had two kids already Dawn was there to reassure me there was a baby for us! They "held" our hands when we felt alone and gave us SO much exposure to situations!
On I got an email from one of the agencies they directed us towards saying we were chosen by a birth mom!! On we welcomed our son into our family! We can't imagine our lives without him! Needless to say I would never adopt again unless we had them walking with us!
WE ARE SO THRILLED FOR YOUR FAMILY!!!! CONGRATULATIONS WILL, HOLLY, and your entire family!!!! What a beautiful baby boy :)

So I enjoy sharing what our family is doing. So here is the deal....we are becoming oily. THIS IS NOT A SELL JOB!!! I am not going to start posting all the time about the wonders of Essential Oils mainly because there are literally 100's of people doing this already, and I have information on my pin board about oils too!!!
I just simply want to share what I have learned so far. :)
I do have to say that Young Living's intro Oil packet (so to speak) is cheaper!!! That's all I am saying about that.
That is where the oils have come in!!! With just the intro pack so to speak I have been able to take care of many "everyday" things. From rashes from unknown source, poison ivy (specifically), headaches, body aches, bug bites, ear aches, congestion, sinus control, sore throat, sun burn, and more. It seems a bit crazy at first. Learning what is for what, but now Joanna will even come to me and say mommy I need some lavender for my itch, etc. It's kinda adorable!!!
