learn with us!

We love the simple life — home cooked meals, watching sunsets with a cup of coffee in hand, and learning more about Jesus together.

We hope we can give you a glimpse into the heart of our home — the beautiful, and the sometimes difficult — and it will offer encouragement and support.

treasure God ’s Word

Ground Yourself in Scripture

“My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.”

Proverbs 4:20–22

…be inspired daily


Psalm 42:1-2 - “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”
Psalm 23:3 - “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.” 💗
He is the same yesterday, today and forever. May we desire His presence more and more each day. 💗
God never witholds from His child that which His love and wisdom call good. 

God's refusals are always merciful "severe mercies" at times but mercies all the same. 

God never denies us our hearts desire except to give us something better. - Elisabeth Elliot
PSALM 37:4-5 - “Delight thyself also in the LORD; And he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; Trust also in him; And he shall bring it to pass.”
“O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go, I Rest My Weary Soul In Thee.” 💗
Keep trusting the One who keeps you trusting. 💗
“A living God must be served in a living way.” 💕 #Christianquotes #Godfirst #LiveForJesus
Joshua 1:9 - “Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

When God’s Word takes root in our heart, it changes everything. This is why we are passionate about getting Scripture into homes across the globe. You can grow deeper in your relationship with Christ by grounding yourself in His Word.

Keep up with our adventures…


It’s your due date, sweet William. ❤️ I can’t imagine our family without you. You are precious in every way and we thank the Lord for the joy you have brought. We all love you.

We had the sweetest time with Papaw Paine and Grandpa Paine this week. ❤️ William got to meet his grandfather and great-grandfather for the first time. Sometimes, I wish I could stop the clock, but there is joy in every season, and for that I am so grateful. God is so good.❤️

✨Bedroom transformation✨
I love that Chad repurposed or made almost everything in our bedroom. It’s our “hotel bedroom” as the kids call it! We have way too much fun doing projects together. 😘 Find the full video on our YouTube channel. 🎥

I cannot thank my sweet friend @tarynyager enough for flying to Florida to make my “baby picture” dreams come true. Since the first time I met her, I knew we would become friends. She has the biggest heart, and she is the most encouraging person to be around, and yes, she takes the best pictures. 📷 I will always treasure them. ♥️
For almost 5 years he has prayed for a little brother. Since the day we brought William home, Carson hasn’t left his side. He has spent hours talking to him about all the wonderful things they will do as brothers and how much he loves him. This mama’s heart could burst seeing them together and my faith has only grown seeing how God answers prayers. ❤️ 
We're convinced he is straight from heaven. 💙

(For those asking, he was born 34.5 days and weighed 5.10)
One week of loving you. You are precious. ♥️
