Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Lovely Lydia

We'd like to introduce our new daughter, Lydia Jean. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 10 oz. and measures 20 1/4 inches long. From the very first in the operating room she had open eyes and a quiet spirit. We'll see how long that lasts! :)




We've had a good day of recovery and getting to know one another, with visits from Aunt Jennifer, Grandma and Grandpa Edwards, Grandma and Grandpa Shimer, and our four older children.




May our Lydia open her heart to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and live her life to His glory, just as Lydia of Philippi did after Paul told her about Jesus.
On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where we expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak to the women who had gathered there. One of those listening was a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul's message. When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. "If you consider me a believer in the Lord," she said, "come and stay at my house." And she persuaded us.
Acts 16:13-15
