What Happens When Women say YES... to God!

Dearest women...

What a season it has been! On September 5th 2011, I'm sailing into a
new adventure in my home on a six-week
video discussion series with Bible teacher and speaker,
Lysa TerKeurst and YOU, dear neighbor, are invited!

Here's a special message from Ms. TerKeurst herself from
the series we will be embarking on:

"No matter who you are, no matter where you've been, no matter
what your current circumstances are, nothing needs to happen
to clean you up or to make you more spiritually mature before
you start becoming a woman who says YES to God.

It can happen today!

When a woman says YES to God, her obedience sets off a chain
reaction of divine change --she changes, those around her change
and the world changes. Truly, one person saying yes to God
can change the world. I believe that with all my heart.
That doesn't mean our obedience will be broadcast
on the evening news, but it will start a series of events
that could lead many people to experience God.

I want you to know deep down in your bones that He can be
so much more than just an item on our good-Christian-girl
checklist. God is truly to be experienced in an intimate
relationship, and He invites us to encounter Him every day.

Will you accept the invitation?"

A New Journey Begins...

Well... at long last, I'm writing again. I know, been quite a while.
For those of you who don't know, we've recently moved our family to a
more rural/suburban location in the Boyertown, Pa area. Can I just say,
we LOVE this place! We've got farmer's markets, racing, family restaurants
everywhere, scenic drives, best fireworks displays and lots of community events.

Our new home is quite cozy, spacious and fun... for living in a townhome community
too! It makes you just get out and meet new people, I love being forced to do that, lol.
The neighborhood is wonderful, families are often seen outdoors, taking care of their
homes, chatting with people, children playing and nearby park is helpful too.

God has truly blessed our family in many ways and we are so thankful.

The boys are adjusting well with our new transition too. Though, Charles (big brother No.
1) is away on his summer vacation, he's excited about having his own room and a
basement to play with his brothers in. Spencer (big brother No. 2) is thrilled to have
a bigger home to play in, a neighborhood with kids his age too. Joshua (Not the big brother)
had a little bit of frustration not knowing where he was for a couple of days, adjusting
to a new room, place etc. but finally is running around the house, all smiles with mommy
and meeting new little friends daily too!

Tony and I are just relieved that God gave us a new start to begin again financially,
"new smaller bills" that aren't breaking our back or bank anymore. Everything is new.
I truly missed that feeling! Change was inevitable and it has been good to us thus
far, cannot complain.

So.... that's all for now as far as family updates. We're all just settling into this new home,
neighborhood and looking forward to what God has in store for our family next! Stay
tuned for news on the job front and anything else that happens in the Allen family....
thanks for staying with us everybody!

There's No Place Like... Home!

End of June 2011

Thank You Heavenly Father...
For your favor, provision and wisdom during our searches.
We want our home to honor You above
all and for it to be a place where family and friends can be at peace and
rest as well as much laughter, song and dances!

May your sovereign blessing be upon this home as we await
the adventures to come!
