Excitement was in the air for us five children! 78 year old Memere was coming to live with us, Even though she was my mom's mother we did not know her very well, Will this be our opportunity to really get to know her, or will an unforeseen tragedy get in our way.
While taking care of mom, away from my husband for months, I tried to be brave and give her as much of me as I could. Those days were not easy. Would I ever be able to go back home? All I could do was pray and wait. An answer was needed, for her and for me. Would it ever come?
A huge decision had to be made concerning mom after her stroke. Should I leave home for however long it will take to care for mom in her home, many hours away, leaving my husband in Maine? This was not going to be an easy decision, nor an easy task taking care of her. God help me with...
The boys all grown up and gone their separate ways. The empty nest syndrome just setting in, then, "Wham!" "A family tragedy!"
Oh My! Shy, humble Andrew. Our last baby. The child that could not hear very well for all of his childhood, the child that was too shy to talk to anyone. The child that achieved so many accomplishments despite his handicaps. One could only wonder how far life would take him and what G...
Decisions, decisions, decisions! Oh! So many decisions to make! Not only for Mark and I, but the kids too. Would we make the right choices? Will we listen to God's still small voice, and be lead in the right directions, following the right paths? Will this end up being the best year e...
Our Tim, since five years of age his goal in life was to be tall, and a great basketball player of which he did achieve to some degree. We never would have dreamed just how far life would take him. Amazing!

My boys were growing up and turning into hopefully the men Mark and I envisioned them to be. Their teenage years were not always easy, would they make it through? Each one of them would have to lean on God for all the decisions they were about to make. This is where I had to let go a...
How different was the home life my children had in contrast with my own childhood. The Lord had heard the prayer of my young heart and had shown me how to find that “better way to live.” I could see the fruit of following His instruction all around me...a living miracle.
Wow! As the boys were growing up it was getting harder and harder to raise them. They were very independent, and it seemed that any advice from us would only cause more strife in the home. What to do? We had to let go and let God, which was not an easy thing to do at times, especially...
Now that my children were all in school, and doing really well, it was my turn. My goal has always been to finish high-school, something I promised myself I would do someday if I ever got the chance. Was it time yet? Would I be able to see past the many obstacles still standing in my ...
We had such gratitude toward God after our first child's decision to give his young heart to Him. Little did we know what other wonderful things awaited us in the near future for our next two children. They never cease to amaze us. God is good and will shower us with His love and grac...
Our boys were really starting to fit in everywhere, at school and at church. We were so happy for that. Then one day, an unexpected bombshell landed right in our laps. Our first born, who hardly ever showed interest in religion, was about to do something that we never would have expec...
Wow! What a difference to be in a real home. It was nothing in comparison to the bus or camper. We had space, space to walk in, and play in and just live in. What a wonderful feeling! We loved our church family and enjoyed meeting new people. My kids still had to start school and meet...
Here we were, finally in Maine, praying for a suitable home to reside in. The months were going by quickly, soon it would be winter. The little camper was just not going to be sufficient enough to keep us warm. Would God supply us with a home that we were praying for. Would it come in...
The long awaited day finally arrived! We were going to leave the bus behind and move forward! God opened the way for us to go to Maine. He helped us purchase a new mobile home which we could not live in yet. Instead, while we were waiting, we bought a small camper. Our living space se...
Every cloud has a silver lining! At times, living in the bus proved to be gloomy and discouraging, especially in the winter months. There was no running water, and sometimes we had very sick children. After six long years we were ready for a change, but had no idea what to do. We need...
Raising young children in a bus did not always prove to be pleasant. Such discouragement would set in at times that proved to be overwhelming. Satan, our enemy, was always trying to cause me to forget why we were there, Christian Education for our children. Then one day, without any w...
Healing and comforting! Two wonderful words! See how our stay in the hospital put things in the right perspective for us, as we watched the sick and dying all around us. Then there was our new kitty that found it's way into our bus and into our hearts. He really helped us with our hea...
January 13th, one of the worst days of our lives. It started out normal enough, getting our children ready to start our day, planning to take our boys to school. Little did I know what lay just ahead of us on this cold, misty January morning. Oh, if I could only have known! God protec...
Another difficult decision to make. Whether or not to leave our beautiful warm state of Connecticut to travel to cold, up North New Hampshire. We knew it would be colder for us there in the winters, living in a bus, but the upside of this decision was our wonderful friends waiting wit...
