My daughter-in-law, Jovan, just started blogging. Check it out: http://jovanrhoades.wordpress.com
And concerning Jovan, yestrday during church, I read a revelatory scripture that so applied to her and I. The background is that I grew up saying I wanted to have eight boys, no girls-just 8 boys, After having 4 girls and only one boy, I would kid that Rocky was so “all-boy” God knew he was all I could handle. Then yesterday, as we were finishing up a series from the Book of Ruth (which I believe should have been called the Book of Naomi, ha!), I read this (Naomi’s friends were celebrating the new grandson and the restoration God had brought Naomi, calling her to praise Him for it):
“For your daughter-in-law, who loves you, and is better to you than seven sons…”
And this is true. Jovan loves me and I love her. And God has revealed without a doubt that she is better than seven more sons would have been. She is better.
And, Julie is now blogging. I have only spoken with Julie in person one time, but we have a lot of connection both through common friends and spiritually. She is a young pastor’s wife with a strong heart after the things of God. I’m impressed by her commitment to raise her children for God, for His intent for their lives and for choosing a surrendered life. I think you’ll like her heart, too. http://surrenderedandsurrounded.blogspot.com

Yes, Jovanie, we are blessed to have you.
Thank you for being Averi’s mommy.
I’m so glad that Jovan is blogging now! And it’s funny you should mention that passage in Ruth because I just read through Ruth last night, I believe. Weird!
That is right! I love you very much! I am sooooo blessed to have you as my mother~in~law! Honestly! You are amazing! I love this picture of us! I think that I need a copy!
