The Presence of God

Today we remember the sacrifice of Christ. As I consider Good Friday, I'm struck by what Jesus endured on the cross. The agony of the cross wasn't limited to pain and death. Nor is it solely about him carrying the weight of our sin. It was also the end game of that sacrifice — becoming sin and the separation from God's presence. It was the…

Celebrate and Honor

It was an honor to film at the Veteran's Day ceremony held by Special Forces Association, Chapter 20 at the Vietnam War Memorial on the State Capitol grounds. It was an awe-inspiring mix of reverence and celebration led by veterans and complimented by the Central High School band. Thank you to all who have served and so selflessly given themselves for our freedom.

A little rain didn't spoil our Memorial Day weekend. We grabbed some bubble mix and had some fun getting wet in our yard.

2014.10 // Halloween

Howdy! The Reed posse had a blast at Halloween Twenty Fourteen! We first walked down the street to the fire station which was serving hot dogs and juice before looping around the neighborhood for candy. When we got back to the house, the gang helped hand out candy. Numbers were down for the third year in a row, but it…

2013.10 // Halloween

The Reed Family went with a space theme this year. Elliot enjoyed being an astronaut and Quinn rocked his stars sleeper.  We took the boys around to our immediate neighbors before getting to work handing out candy.  Although our overall total was down from year's past (173 overall, 131 kids), we love that giving out candy is the funnest part…

Happy Easter 2012!

After a busy Easter weekend we headed to Walton Park for a little family egg hunt.  We decided to bring along a basketball and started out on the basketball courts.  Elliot seemed to naturally know what to do and made a few attempts to make a basket.  I guess watching March Madness paid off. We scattered some eggs and Elliot…

Happy 2012!

We welcomed in 2012 by bundling up Elliot and taking him outside for his first true Minnesota winter experience.  He was more confused by the snowsuit than the snow itself.  What was his reward for persevering the cold?  A solo attempt at eating spaghetti!  He did a fine job.  Now if we can just teach him to clean himself up...

Easter

Easter had begun to be a tradition with me and my Grandma, and whoever else would be there that year.  For many years (since my mom moved to California) this was the time I'd go to Hibbing, decorate eggs, staining my poor fingers for days, eat more than I should, and just generally enjoy the tradition -especially the egg cracking contest,…
