If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Sunday Snapshot- Home From Family Camp

Our family just returned from the best week of our year.

Every summer we spend one week at Pine Cove Family Camp in Tyler, Texas.

It is the place where God forces me to slow down, give my children my undivided attention, and hear from Him.

Seriously every year, God takes something that he has been placing before my eyes (and I was too busy to notice) and he hits me over the head with it   reveals it to me in an Ah Ha moment.   Then he places a beautiful bow of grace on it and says here now go and follow my plan.

I always come back with tons of inspiration, fabulous teaching, and good practical application in my hands.

I also come back with a million few pictures.  I will share some of those with you as I also try and share some of what God is encouraging me to in hopes that maybe there is something in there for you too.

Now this is how we are all feeling today after having to leave Family Camp for another 358 days.
