One of the many joys that Kim and I have had in the past couple of years is opening up our home to college students. We find a lot of happiness in being a home away from home for young adults beginning life on their own.

One of the college students that we have welcomed into our family, we discovered, has an incredible gift in the area of photography. His name is Codey Powell and he took our family out for a photo shoot yesterday afternoon after our Easter morning worship.
