Extending My Warmest Christmas Greetings To You!

Merry Christmas!

It truly is a wonderful time of year as we celebrate
the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Not everything in my life is functioning perfectly, but I praise God for what is good and what I’m learning in the process of becoming more like him. More about that later.
First let me brag on my kids!

Everyone was here in Grand Rapids for a wedding in July.
Can you say Happy Mama?

Back home in Charleston, SC, Eli’s turned in to a CrossFit beast with Kym cheering him on. Eli is a firefighter and Kym is an award winning manager with Starbucks. They took a trip to Ireland last spring to discover castles and moors and Guinness.

We all breathed a sigh of relief when Kym’s mom, who lives in Puerto Rico checked in after a 7 day silence during Hurricane Maria. Marisel was in Charleston for Thanksgiving. 


Jake is staying busy as a mechanical engineer at work and busy at home … remodeling his truck, his motorcycles and his garage. He’s transformed the old building into a heated automotive workshop where he spends many happy hours. And he makes the best pie.
His pretty pup, Nala, thinks he tastes as good as he looks.


   Dave and I are running the roads from event to event and loving it. There is nothing better than helping women experience God in a more personal and powerful way.

Although Dave does most of the driving, he occasionally has to surrender the wheel, which is apparently only good for one of us. He is truly my Mr. 4-Ever, partnering in ministry and fixing everything that breaks in our old house.    









I am working with several coaches to discover God’s best for me and in me so I can teach it to others. Not always easy or pleasant, but I am confident that this hard work is necessary. I (mostly) love what I am learning and am so excited to share these lessons soon.

And you? How are you? I’d love to hear how your family is, what you’re working on,
or what’s vexing you in the best possible way.

Praying you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Robyn and Dave (Mr. 4-Ever)

    We are downsizing to a double wide mobile home on our daughter’s farm. It’s exciting but stressful. Our oldest son is getting married on New Year’s eve and his family is moving to Germany on January twentieth, we are happy and proud, but will miss them terribly. Our grandson from Michigan brought us a golf cart for Christmas so my husband will be able to get around when we move. Many changes in our life right now, we believe God is in charge and life will be better once everything is settled. Prayers are appreciated.

      Sandy, That is a LOT of change. I pray for the peace of God to fall and stay with you so you can enjoy all these new and exciting events. God bless you. Robyn
