Fall 2018

Dissertation Update: Paul spent much of the summer wor king on his PhD disser tation. He took sever al study
trips to Princeton University, Indiana University, and Clarks Summit University to do research and have access
resources which are only available in theological libraries. He is glad to be nearly half-way finished, and he hopes to
officially complete the dissertation this school year. His work is entitled “Archaeological Discoveries of Ancient
Corinth and the Exegesis of First Corinthians: From Archaeology to Exegesis.” He has completed 120 pages, and
expects to write another 150 pages. Please continue to pray for Paul as he juggles ministry, family, and PhD work. We
want him to finish well (and soon)!

Family Update: J er emiah Paul is now 20 weeks old. He is holding his head up, and is
showing signs of rolling over very soon. You can tell from the picture with his daddy that JP
is a very happy baby. He brings great joy to our little family, and we can’t remember what
life was like before he came along! Caroline is a very busy 2.5 year-old. She loves to play
outside, sing songs, read books, and color. We are truly blessed, and thank the Lord everyday
for our children.

From the heart of a mother: As I sit her e wr iting this

newsletter, Caroline is rummaging through the pen drawer,
looking for “card making” supplies, and Jeremiah has spit
up all over his third onesie for the day. Sometimes I feel as
though my whole day is spent cleaning up messes! I have
been struggling lately feeling like a “non-person,”
wondering if anyone out there even sees me (I am sure this
has been the experience for every mother at sometime). How thankful I am, however,
that in this season of life I am growing even closer to the Lord. I have been spending
extra time on Bible passages dealing with love. While it may sound cliché, I’m not
sure I fully understood what love was before having children. Sure, it’s easy to love
them in the snuggly times, but what about when they use your favorite lipstick as a
crayon? God is continually reminding me that love is not circumstantial. It is a
purposeful decision, and it should be an outpouring of the love that Christ has for me!
I cannot help but love others when I am reminded of His sacrifice. I want to be an
example of God’s love to not only my children, but to all those around me.
