We must have been separated at birth because this is the brother I never knew I had until March of 2016 when God brought us together in Uganda. And today is his birthday. I'm so glad this man was born and that God saw fit to have us be brothers. Such grace. One of the most important people in my life and words would fail me to tell you of the deep respect, awe, love, and depth I feel for this guy. Happy Birthday, @timothy_albers ... I wish there weren't so many miles between us today so we could celebrate together.

Started the Coins for Lent Giving Calendar tonight with the kids (a day late obviously because we are the Boekells). Excited to see our family grow in generosity as we work through this great resource benefiting Acres of Hope Uganda! Thanks @dunlapmarbri and @redemptionwv Kids Ministry for this exciting resource.

Officially a Boekell for one year today. But she stole my heart long before that and I'll love her till the day I die! My daughter. Our Phoenix. We love you, Phoenix Juliet Boekell. Happy family day. #familyday

We were supposed to be Dallas today watching these two covenant in marriage but the flu laid us all out instead. This photo is just a tiny window into how they've grown to be family over the last year or more being in our home and in our lives. Words really do fail me this morning (maybe it's the flu or maybe I'm just sad we're missing the big day... both). But we love you David and Krista. May this day be filled with the greatest joy and Christ exalting glory. I know it will be and I wish we could be there to witness it. Happy Wedding Day!

When one of your pastors and his bride find out the family is sick and had to cancel a weekend trip and they show up with all the good stuff! I'm always learning from my sweet pastors and their families. Sweethearts. Every last one of em. @joshperry77 and @sarahp6 need to stop it right now. On the sly and all that tricky stuff.

Limited Portrait Sessions in 2018

We have had very little availability over the last few years as we went through some major transitions and one of the craziest, most exciting seasons of our life as a family (bringing our beautiful daughter home from Uganda). We’ve got a tiny bit of margin again, so we’re going to expand our offerings (although they will still be limited). PORTRAITS ONLY: families, kids, couples, and individuals (NOT weddings for now).
ONLY 40 SHOOTS per year: the first 20 can be pre-booked (to use at your convenience) at $175 each, and the remainder will be $200 each.

We’re excited to be back at it in a small way. Contact us to book your session or to ask any questions. *portrait sessions will be one-hour on location and will include an online gallery, 25-30 fully edited digital images, and full copyright release.

He only has about 3-4 hours total ever on a snowboard just always shocks me when I see how he takes ownership of it so quickly every time he gets on it. HE WAS SO PROUD OF THE TINY JUMP he did on only his second run. Haha. He's such a cool dude! We'll have to get him some more time on this thing. Thanks @rickijoy and @mgullion3023 getting him on one in the first place and thanks @dkinzel and @evergreenandlace for the sweet board last winter.

This one goes out to all the strong and beautiful queens in The Pearl. My fierce immigrant brown skin daughter has more dignity in her big toe than... I won't say it. But Phoenix, know this, just because our POTUS calls some African countries a a $h!+hole doesn't even come close to making it true. Your birth country is one of the most beautiful places on the planet filled with hosts of the most beautiful people on the planet. Your blood runs in that dirt and that red dirt beats in your chest and you're better for it. And I'm better for it. We're better for it. You bear the Imago Dei, you're a queen (not the fancy bratty type but the gentle warrior type), and you'll move mountains. #uganda #Afrilachian

Excited to dive into this today with @redemptionwv ... when fear threatens to overwhelm us, we need to be reminded of who our God is and that our Good Shepherd Jesus is always with us.

Come to Redemption Church (1021 4th Ave Huntington) today between 10-2. Anyone between the ages of 18-44 is a possible bone marrow match for this sweet little baby. The transplant is becoming more urgent every day and they need a match ASAP. Come by for a quick and painless mouth swab and see if you might be the match. #huntingtonwv #gotowv

Gonna slow cook this thing. Marinate a little. Let off the gas pedal and go deep. And I'm super excited about it. Nothing has changed my life more than the God of this book.
