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.

The Shindig

By Creg

I've never seen so many beautiful, healthy, polite people in my life. The Great Ozark Mountain Shindig was a 4 day seminar in central Missouri for Christian families sponsored by No Greater Joy. It consisted of classes, games, fellowship and hundreds of wonderful home-school families from all across America getting to know each other.

There were classes on Bible study, herbs, young love, budgeting, marriage, teenagers, and much more. We all benefited from their wisdom and experience. In between classes they had volleyball, frisbee, basketball, and other games for all ages. And there was plenty of free time to fellowship with the other families.


The Plath family
The first afternoon we met the Plath clan, a wonderful family from Georgia. They have 9 beautiful kids from ages 15 to 7 months who would sit on the front row of the classes for almost 2 hours with barely making a peep. The mom, Kim, has written a booklet about herbal products, so you know her and Chelsa hit it off well. It is so neat to see such Godly parents and kids.
Our cabin. It had 5 bunk beds & a bathroom.

The inflatable water park where we had a lot of fun.

We met a 17 year old home-schooled author who was selling his books. Sierra enjoyed his book on the way home.

Exploring a cave with the Plath family.

Sterling found several bats in the cave.
