Simplicity

I have been thinking and praying about more simplicity in our lives.
And in doing so I came across Luke 18:16-17

“Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them!
For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive
the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”

Have you ever considered how a child receives the Kingdom of God?

Simply.

Bruce and I took Molly out to get some pictures in the wild flowers last week, before they were cut down.
She had so much fun just noticing the flowers.
You can't really tell in these pictures, but there were little pink flowers mixed in with the yellow flowers.
She ran and spun and picked flowers - lots of flowers.
And she cried when it was time to go home.
She has asked me twice in the past week if we can go to the flowers again.

Simplicity lives in the wonder of a child.

Oh Rhonda- I LOVE this.....These Photo's are absolutely PRECIOUS! The Lord has me teaching preschoolers right now and it is so refreshing to see the simple, joyful faith of a child! May we all receive and give to others the love of God like little children so gracefully do.

Great photos of Princess Molly =). I bet this was a lot of fun. I love the scriptures, it reminds me of my Daddy God.

Oh my goodness, how precious! Your kids are so beautiful, and what a blessing that you have all these awesome photos to remember their childhoods. Love it.

So sweet. I love how you styled her, she looks like a little french beauty :).

Do you want to contact me?

Why photography with an eternal purpose?

In 2008 I read a book by Francis Chan called Crazy Love. While reading that book, I was challenged in the way I gave back to God. Tithing couldn't be enough anymore, but our family lived to the end of our means - without any margin for God to use. So I prayed about how that could change. This venture is one of the ways I have responded to the answer to that prayer. A photography business where God gets the majority of the earnings to use for His purposes.
I'm not sure what that fully looks like yet, but I'm excited for the potential of what God is going to do.
