Defenders of Light

Three defenders of light.

For they are not just children. They have a mighty work and I’m catching glimpses of my role as mother.

They will now lead our family. We sat down as a family and invited them to counsel with us each week, decide on things to do and plan them out to help our family come closer together and to Christ.

Yes, Cade and I will still parent but they are capable of seeing and leading in amazing ways.

In fact, they will have a greater impact on our family than we ever could.

And in the process of finding and solving issues In our home they will grow, learn and become. It’s their turn to rise up, to go from being CHILDREN OF LIGHT to DEFENDERS OF LIGHT.

Cade and Carrian have three children and love to spend time together whether it’s vacationing or snuggled up on the couch for a good movie.

They love everything from the keep you fit and healthy to the get out your sweat pants indulgent and everything in between.

But most of all, they love the memories made, shared and treasured and it’s all thanks to a meal shared together with loved ones.
