The Kids room!!

They love their bunk beds now I need to teach them that they need to make everyday!

This is where their boards are that will have their chores and Verse of the month on. ( I want then to memorize verses more this year)   I also want to put love notes to them on it!

The view from the Door! I dislike their blinds very much!

Another view and that is their closet!

Their quiet reading corner.

Their closet and all their toys and books! You can see the floor1 Yeah!
So I know I have posted this before, well it was time for another.  I am learning that as the kids grow I need to monthly do a a full cleaning of the their room.  Since they share a room it can get very tight in there and full of junk! For the past 8 years the kids have always shared a room and it has been great, but now we are getting into a new phase of life where they soon will need their own rooms.  They need their own space and they seem to be out growing this one, but we are making it work.  So thankful for what God has given us and we are praying that the bigger house at the right time will become available for our family.  So their room was beginning to look like a Hoarders room.  YES it was!! It was scary and I would get so frustrated every time I would go into it.  Well with my amazing sisters help we got it together.  I still want to do some decorating things and I may need to change a few more things but  this is how it is now and I feel so relieved.  They love it!! They have played all day in their room and I love it!

My Son, a little boy after God's Heart!

Elisha Ryan Williams! His name means God is my Salvation and little King.  I love it.  When Jimmy and I were naming him we took a lot of time deciding. We wanted his name to be strong.  We wanted him to represent  what we believe in.  This name was perfect and it was perfect for him.  If you know my son you are probably laughing.  If you know how God  works you  would say WOW what an awesome God we serve. I pray for my kids daily.  About every six months I write out a list of things that I want to see in my children or things that they need to work on and also protection, and that they make friends with people that will be the right fit in their lives and people that need to experience more of Christ Love.  

A few years ago Eli started to ask to See Jesus.  He said he wanted to see him.  So Jimmy and encouraged him to ask God to reveal himself to Eli.  He prayed this daily and one morning when he got up he said, "mom I saw Jesus last night." It was so sweet.  Then a month ago he shared the plan of salvation with a friend and that blew me away.  Now my little guy enjoys writing in his journal and sitting and reading his Bible.  I love it. It actually brings me to tears. I know that God has such an amazing plan for my little Boy.  I know that he will be called out, and I believe he already has.  I will continue to pray for him and I will continue to encourage him to share Christ's love in any way he can.

Lord Thank you so much for making my son.  I pray that you will equip us as his mother and father to be what he needs to be.  I pray that we will be that example  he needs to grow closer to you .  I pray that you  will give wisdom and strength to battle the fight that is before him.  I pray that his armor is on and he is ready.! Thank you Lord for Elisha Ryan.  He is gift! This is the verse that I am praying over my son!! I know he is warrior! He is a warrior for Christ!

"Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints...." Ephesians 6:10-18
