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.

Sterling is 15

By Creg

Sterling holding his Veggie Tale notebook we made for him when he was 3 with his dinosaurs posters in the background.

From Veggie tales to Pixar movies to dinosaurs to Star Wars to Pro football & back again. Sterling has grown in leaps & bounds the last 15 years. 

His first memories are as a little boy who loved Jimmy & Jerry Gourd from Veggie Tales. He spent many days creating his own world with all of the characters from that series. The movies "Toy Story", "Bug's Life", "Monster's Inc.", and "Finding Nemo" took his interests to Lenny the binoculars, Heimlich the caterpillar, Harley (the yellow monster with a big mouth & no arms), & Bloat the blow-fish. He always seemed to find a minor character to be his favorite. And since they rarely made toys of those "in the crowd" personalities, we spent hours making our own figures for him to play with. It was great.

Later his fascination turned to dinosaurs and he read everything he could get his hands on. We took a vacation with Granny & Pa King to Glen Rose several times to see the dino tracks and Creation Museum. Then his older sister, Sierra, got him into football and he played 2 years with the home-school Jr.High team here in Abilene, leading the team in tackles & sacks.

Now he helps us out with whatever job we're doing, takes care of his 3 turtles, 4 frogs When he's at Granny's house he loves to watch "The Andy Griffith Show", "Pawn Stars", and Animal Planet. He also takes care of all the chickens on our farm and runs the power point during worship at Hope church of Christ. We're proud of him.
