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.

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


These are some of my favorite ways to grow in my walk with the Lord. Start with building a habit of spending time with Jesus and learning more about Him each day. ❤️ What a Friend we have in Jesus.

Psalm 94:17-19
“Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
When I said, My foot slippeth; Thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.
In the multitude of my thoughts within me, Thy comforts delight my soul.”

“I need Thee every hour
Most gracious Lord
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford
I need Thee, O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O bless me now, my Savior
I come to Thee
I need Thee every hour
Stay Thou nearby
Temptations lose their power
When Thou art nigh
I need Thee, O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O bless me now, my Savior
I come to Thee
I need Thee every hour
In joy or pain
Come quickly and abide
Or life is vain
I need Thee, O I need Thee
Every hour I need Thee
O bless me now, my Savior
I come to Thee
O bless me now, my Savior
I come to Thee” - Fernando Ortega
“Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.” - Jonathan Edwards ✨

Keep up with our adventures…


My parents @thebatesfam put on the most wonderful weekend, which we've always called “I Love You Day”! It is always centered around a theme for costumes and games and this year was “Little House on the Prairie”. Every year grows, as you can imagine, and the grandchildren now bring so much excitement and joy to the party. This is just a glimpse, but you will find more on our YouTube [Chad and Erin] 📹 I'm so thankful for the time we spent in Tennessee with family and friends. I'm already missing everyone! ❤️

Thank you, Jesus, for the sweetest gifts. ❤️ Sometimes I feel like I'm experiencing a little piece of heaven while here on earth. I love this man with all my heart and I will cherish every moment we get to spend together. 😘
I'm so blessed.

It’s late. The house is quiet except for the purr of little William’s swing. I can hear the occasional fireworks in the distance. I have my Bible laid out and my journal open; it’s like I’m closing the chapter on an amazing year, not without its difficulties or struggles, but a year that has changed our lives in a big way. 
A Psalm that has always meant so much to me says, “…but I WILL REMEMBER the years of the right hand of the most High. I WILL REMEMBER  the works of the Lord: surely I WILL REMEMBER thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work and talk of thy doings.” (Psalm 77:10-12) 
I want to remember the hard days when it seemed as if everything was out of control, but I knew He was with me in the midst of it. I want to remember the days when I saw Him answer my specific prayers. I want to remember the days when He spoke to my heart, calmed my biggest fears, and gave me peace. 
You see, I know when I start thinking about how good, loving, and forgiving God has been to me in the past. My heart starts overflowing with gratitude and a renewed passion to just trust Him with the future. Trust Him with my fears. Trust Him with my life because He is faithful. He is worthy of our all. 
As I turn the page in my journal, it’s like a blank slate. How am I going to fill it this year? Will I use my time wisely? Will I point someone to Jesus? Will I become a more devoted Christian? Will I become more like Christ? 
I'm encouraged to make every moment count for eternity this new year. 

✨Excerpt taken from our weekly devotional at ChadandErin.com
The Bible is God’s love letter to you and me. Spending time reading it will challenge us to become more like Christ. It will encourage us when we are down. It will bring peace when we are overwhelmed. It will give hope and joy when we need it most. It's the best gift. ❤️

My favorite Christmas hymns. “O Holy Night” and “The Birthday of a King”
Every single time I read through the lyrics it touches my heart. Thank you, Jesus. ❤️

‘Twas a humble birthplace, but O how much
God gave to us that day
From the manger bed what a path has led
What a perfect, holy way.
Alleluia! O how the angels sang
Alleluia! How it rang!
And the sky was bright with a holy light
‘Twas the birthday of a King.
