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.

Michael's Baptism

By Creg
Michael getting baptized
 We met Michael a couple of years ago at Faithworks, where he was known as mighty Michael with the mighty appetite, and we became friends. He is a hard worker who doesn't have trouble finding a job, just trouble keeping one, because his demon would always come back at the worst time. He's been trying to break his drug addiction for most of his life, going through various programs & counselors. He knew he needed something different.

People from HOPE Church praising God for his rebirth
April 20th at Jacob's Dream on the ACU campus is when Michael started something different. After a lot of studying, prayer & sharing his testimony at church, Michael decided to give his life to Jesus & be baptized for the forgiveness of his sins so the Holy Spirit could come live in him.

He knows his addiction is not gone, and there will still be struggles ahead, but now he has the power to deal with them by giving them up to God for healing.

On July 10th Michael graduated from the Serenity House for recovering addicts. His story keeps getting better.
