What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

First Blog

We don't presume we've done anything that someone would like to read about, but we hope you will have as much fun reading our blog as we will have writing it and living it.


  1. Yay!!!! I am so excited about this! :-) Now I can keep up a little better - and I always love pictures of my favorite Abilene family.

  2. Me, too! And the name ("Istre in the Making") is a stroke of genius!

    Look forward to reading about your family adventures!

  3. Kristy,
    My (genius) Aunt Dyna and Uncle John thought of the name for us. When Creg quit teaching and we were thinking of doing some sort of family business selling herbal products or breads and garden goodies like pickles and homemade salsa, this was one of the four choices they had brainstormed for us. I really like it. It's so clever! =)

  4. Rael,
    I'm so excited too!!! Glad you are following along.
