For This Journey We're On bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! My name is Brantley and this is my little corner of the web! I am a wife to incredibly patient, loving & Christ-seeking man! I am the mommy to two beautiful girls! Katherine Grace was brought to us through the blessing of adoption. Annalise was welcomed in May 2014 through the blessing of birth! I gave up my life-long passion & career as a photographer to be a mom first! I still enjoy documenting life through my lens and sharing them here! The Lord has taught me so much, and continues to work in my life daily! Our journey is fun, exciting and often times hard! But through this journey, I cling to my Savior knowing He is in control!

    My husband and I began a ministry, called Voices 4 the Voiceless back in 2011. We both feel burdened to care for the fatherless and advocate on their behalf! Join us as we journey through life!

7 Months

7 months ago today, we were sent to the hospital where we would soon meet this little nugget.  Oh how fast the time has flown by!  I miss each day that passes but look ahead with such excitement as I watch this sweet girl grow!

Annalise, what a joy and blessing you are!  Mommy & Daddy and of course, your big sister, all love you so very much!

He Makes All Things Beautiful

I want to say thank you.  Thank you for the sweet thoughts, messages and prayers.  I fell so incredibly loved.

As I said before, I believe that God is good all the time. Whether good or bad, happy or sad, He is SOVEREIGN!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 & 11

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

2 a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

The Lord is molding me.  He has given me great comfort this last week as we experienced loss.  And for that I am thankful.  I truly believe He is making ‘beautiful things’ out of heartache.

Until then…

Adorable!

Its beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

Its beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here!  As we wrap gifts, make cookies, enjoy the Christmas lights and all around us… my prayer is that our children know the ONE TRUE reason why we celebrate Christmas!  We make it a point to only do a few gifts per child.  Usually 3.  Then we have a tradition of making Jesus a birthday cake and decorating it all pretty!  We try as often as possible to constantly bring it back to Him – as this is HIS special day!
