  1. Great to hear about your journey following the Lord, guys. And I like the rendering of your family on a two-winged adventure! Captures your lives well!

  2. Dear Phil & Jess,
    I am encouraged in reading your blog, what a great tool! Thanks for the note, also. I am smiling ear to ear at your great news, Congratulations!!! We have found a home church and went to our first Life!Group last night. It was a blast. I am thankful for the fellowship we share as believers and look forward to making new friends. It is a good place, even though challenging, to move and trust God in different ways than you had too. I have been doing quite a bit of reflecting too.
    We are excited for your journey and praying for you often,
