And here's my other boy.😍 We don't know exactly when he'll come home, but we're thankful beyond words for @meredithtoering and the amazing caregivers at @morningstarfoundation who have loved him fiercely and continue to, day after day. To know your child has first been loved by the selfless hearts of so many before you is a humbling thing. What a gift. Love you, Meredith. Love you, sweet boy. See you both soon. ❤️

You turned 4 this last week — and we celebrated with cake and practiced in English: “I’m FOUR... I’m FOUR” with the corresponding fingers, over and over again.
The very best gift was this special book you received — a book made with love, full of pictures and names. A mom and a dad... two brothers and a sister. Two big dogs, some chickens, and a cat.
Your family 😭💛.
We flipped through the pages, saying names and finding faces, just like you had practiced your age — over and over again.
You’ve had a banner kind of year, with that brave little heart — the miracle surgery they told us couldn’t be. And now you have a family, to continue that fight for Hope — to stand by your side — to love you, call you Brother and Son. A brave little heart soon to be healed, in more ways than one.
It’s your second birthday to celebrate here with us, sweet boy. We love you to the moon, and we’re going to miss you so much. Hearts are already soaking up every bit of these last couple months — but my heart could not be one ounce more full to know that next year... next year, on that special 5th birthday day?
That day — you’ll celebrate Home🏡. @biblewilliams #tobythebravestwizard #chdwarrior

Drank manure water today. 😳 See my instastory for more on how @filterofhope is providing communities with clean water and the gospel. #cpc18

Caught up with a dear friend today. When I first moved to Nashville, 17 years ago, it was to be Eric’s intern as he led a junior high youth group in Franklin. I left a salaried job at my alma mater to take one that had little pay and absolutely nothing to do with my degrees. I wanted to move, this job opened up at the church where my best friend worked, and Nashville seemed as good a landing place as any. I had no clue what I was doing. But God knew. And dadgummit if that one decision didn’t shape all the ones since— in the best way. I’ve made most of my “life friends” in this town. I met my husband here and we had our babies here. And now I’m stewarding a business and ministry here. My heels are dug in deep, and it’ll take another God-led move to ever unstick them. And it all started with a group of middle schoolers and this guy. Thanks, buddy. @ericovanzee

Staring at palm trees in Florida while the kids are sledding in Nashville. This is L getting some solid air. 👊☃️💪

Spent most of my flight to FL reading this letter I hadn’t read in way too long. I urge you to read it too. Just google it— “Letter from Birmingham Jail” — it’s not hard to find.
I’m struck by the grace in his writing. I’m struck by his bones-deep understanding of the gospel. I’m struck by the sheer beauty of the writing and the knowledge that these stunning words were penned from a jail cell two hours from the town where I grew up just 25 years later. I’m struck by his rebuke of the Church— a rebuke that reminds me of those Jesus leveled at Pharisees and disciples alike, with truth and grace. I’m convicted and inspired and grieved and grateful all at once. May we never be silent— not so much here in our virtual world as *here* in our homes and neighborhoods and churches. God help us be faithful.
“If today's church does not recapture the sacrificial spirit of the early church, it will lose its authenticity, forfeit the loyalty of millions, and be dismissed as an irrelevant social club with no meaning for the twentieth century.” — MLK ‘63

It was a day to remember, for more reasons than the snow. ❤️ January 13, 2018

It wasn’t a perfect year, but gosh it was memorable. And is anyone else starting to suspect perfection isn’t what we think it is, anyway?
Let’s do this, 2018. Let’s turn 40 and laugh a lot and pray without ceasing. Let’s go meet my son. 👊

The ache is almost over. The Lord has come, and He will come again—to make all things new, to set all things right. Thanks be to God. •
“I also saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice from the throne: Look, God’s dwelling is with humanity, and he will live with them. They will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; grief, crying, and pain will be no more, because the previous things have passed away. Then the one seated on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new.” He also said, “Write, because these words are faithful and true.””
‭— Revelation‬ ‭21:2-5‬ ‭CSB‬‬

For YOU. 🎁
Wherever you are today—whatever your longing, your need, your shortcomings, your circumstance—go straight to Bethlehem. See the baby lying in a manger, born to set us free from sin and death. See the God Most High who made Himself low. See the living, breathing hope that is for all people. Let the realities of this complicated, beautiful, broken world be enveloped in the truth that is above all truths: The Lord, your Savior, has come. Joy to the world.

Our last Christmas as a family of five. ❤️ Sometime in 2018, we’ll travel to China to bring home our fourth child, a son. We are thrilled and nervous and counting the days. This family is a gift, and it is our immense joy and honor to welcome this precious boy into it. Forever. Thanks be to God. .

Took my people to see Home Alone with the @nashvillesymphony the other night and it was magical. The boys have been obsessed with the movie for years. We have videos of them setting “twaps” for the “wobbas” when they were 5.❤️🎄

A photo session in my backyard, no fancy clothes or hair or makeup, a photographer who makes me laugh, and photos that feel like the real me. Thanks, @simonandmoose. 💛

Nashville, she’s booking for 2018. And she’s a patient goddess during family sessions (stay tuned for that magic — my children were INSANE).📷👩‍👧👨‍👦‍👦
