Prayer Requests

Hi everyone! Hope ya'll are having a fantastic day. Things are slow around here. We've mostly been hanging around the house for the last few days. Not necessarily by choice, but because the Army is stealing our money and making it hard to do anything. Ha! Okay, so they're not really stealing our money but they did accidentally over-pay us right after Ryan got home from Haiti and now we are paying that back. Soooo... we're doing lots of creative things at home these days. Which is just fine because it's quality family time and that's a good thing. I have a brief list of some prayer requests for our family. Some are for right now, while others are for the next few years. If ya'll wouldn't mind praying for us and possibly passing them on, that would be great! Here goes...

  • We are really trying to get pregnant before Ryan deploys. We are quickly running out of time, so please pray that it happens. And if it doesn't, please pray that we will have peace in knowing that it's God's plan for our family.
  • Jax is being a super picky eater these days. It's not such a huge deal, but since we are trying to get him to chubby up, it's making it hard. He's healthy so we aren't really worried, but please pray that he has a strong appetite and that he eats lots!
  • Pray for Ryan's upcoming deployment. I can't post any details, but please just pray for safety, protection, lots of peace and comfort while he's gone, and for the time to FLY by. Also pray that plans work out for me to go home to CA for awhile during that time.
  • We are in the early stages of figuring out what Ryan "wants to be when he grows up". Or at least that's how he puts it :) He has a little less than 2 years left in the Army and he isn't planning on re-enlisting at that point. We would love to move back to Clovis/Fresno, but that mostly depends on finding a job there. Please pray that we hear God's voice when it comes to this process. We are specifically praying for connections to job opportunities. For a job that pays well enough for us to not feel stressed about money. For a good place to live. For a smooth transition back into civilian life.
I'm sure there are more things that I could list, but those are the things that are almost constantly on our minds these days. Thank you so much for your support and for continuing to keep our little family in your prayers. It is appreciated so much more than you know!!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your prayer requests. You guys have a lot of big things going on and coming up. I will have to check out the Manna series on discipline. My little food thrower is getting some of that lately:)
