Choosing Life

Today, Mr. Phillips of Vision Forum wrote about his wife. I have read very little that spoke to my heart as this did. Mr. Phillips brought to attention the many, many amazing results of one mother's brave decision. The situation seemed tragic, "but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." (Genesis 50:20)

My sister and I were able to meet Mrs. Phillips at the Jamestown Quadricentennial. What a sweet, motherly, godly lady! Thank the Lord for her life!

I just wanted to say how much your blog inspires me!! I've been reading your blog for awhile... I found it on the Christa Taylor website (congratulations on winning!!). I love your courtship story and it helps me to know that even though the person I'm supposed to marry could live across the country God can bring us together! How wonderful to go and live in alaska! It's so BEAUTIFUL!! Are you a little afraid of having bears on your property?

Thank you so much for your great example! I've loved reading your blog and learning from you!!

Hello Alexandrea!

Thank you so much for the sweet comment!

You don't know how glad I am that our courtship story has been a blessing to you! After following the courtship route, I can definitely say that it is "the way to go"!

I always worried that I would never meet a young man who had the necessary initiative to pursue a courtship relationship. Tait was wonderful, though! He took all of the initiative. Being courted by him was a joy!

To be honest, yes, I am a little afraid of having bears on our property. But Tait says that when we get a dog, it will help keep the bears away. At least I won't have to worry about snakes and spiders! :D

I sent the link to your blog to my sister. (Of course, since she was just downstairs at the time, I could have just told her about it. Ah, modern technology!) It looks like you and she have a lot in common!

Have a blessed day, Alexandrea, and thanks again for commenting! I look forward to more communication between us!
