Juju Chang visited our house to get an update on news about the addition of Jeb Colton and the new TLC show that will air March 13th. We met Juju last year when ABC did a one hour show on the family, and we all fell in love with her enthusiastic personality! We felt like we were having a reunion with an old friend, since Juju has such a way of making everyone feel so special!
We prayed for a long time about this decision. Our priorities are to put God first, our family second, and ministry and work third. We want to be careful to maintain those priorities, but at the same time, the many e-mails we receive show that families are desiring encouragement as they endeavor to fulfill the difficult task of parenting. We certainly don’t claim to have all the answers, nor do we claim to have a model family… quite contrary, we recognize we have these same needs for encouragement. We are grateful for the many examples of other Godly families who have greatly influenced us!
The greatest message we are learning that we can pass on as encouragement to others is the message that:
This message has helped us to draw strength during the dark times and uncertain times, and we feel it is a message that can bring hope and encouragement to others!
As we learn more to lean on God for strength in our own lives, we pray that other families will also find the strength and wisdom needed to raise a generation of children that are eager to make a difference in this world!
