Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Finally...you can meet....


Kennith is the love of Whitney's life. And, her whole family liked him from the minute we met him. She met him in church. (Hey Girls, THAT is THE place to meet your soul mate.)

And, for those of you who know Josie-Tatum personally, you may be as schocked as we were to hear this. Kennith came to our house after driving two hours to get here. He arrived just before lunch. Then, as Josie-Tatum was going to bed, she looked at him and said, "I think you will make a good brother-in-law." He had won Josie-Tatum over in hours.....after one visit. That was something.

You might also want to know, he has NOT asked Whitney to marry him.

But, Kennith rolled with the punch and laughed as much as we all did.

He even joined cookie baking day, with as much enthusiasm as the rest of the kids.

He loves Jesus. He treats Whitney with kindess and respect. He entertains my girls when he and Whitney skype at night.

But, New Year's Eve, he won my heart.

We had a family emergency and Kennith was on his way to our house. He took the time to text me and tell me he was praying for us. I was with the family member at the hospital. I remembered I had a Boston Butt at home I needed to put on the smoker.

Whitney and Kennith spent the day preparing the butt and keeping an eye on it throughout the hours and hours it was on the smoker.


I had come home, but needed to rest. Kennith continued working in my kitchen.

We're all thinkin' he's a keeper. He can be a part of our miracle of more.

I believe that's what we all want as mothers for our daughters. A man to come along and love them, love Jesus and have kindness. You just wrapped it up and she found him. Praises to God. Blessings to them.
