We love watching these videos each day. It is so incredible to see what you see (and to see you). Owen and Lucas loved watching you make lunch and dance, Nonie. Enjoy the rest of this amazing journey.

Love you,

We love y’all. Love,

Oh my gosh, after reading crossing the tiber, how can anyone not become Catholic. I don’t get it.
It makes sense. So why don’t others join?? Your parents, James Dobson, Jimmy Swaggert? You lay it all out pure black n white………..I’m really asking why don’t others join the Church Jesus Christ founded????????? Your awesome Stephen K Ray!!!!!!!!!!!
