Our church family, April 2020
Carolyn Adams sent me a text asking if I could share a picture for her because she liked it and wanted others to see it as well. Welp, that sparked an idea - So I sent out a text to a few church members and told them that we are missing their faces! I asked them to send pictures, videos or inspirational/fun quotes. The response was amazing! We have a wonderful church family y'all!!
Thank you to those of you who shared a part of your life with us! We would love to hear from more of you! If you would like to add your picture/quote/video, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Blessings, Tricia

Hi Tricia, I wanted to send this picture of the banner that is on the campus here at the Manor. I love it and it warms my heart. God bless them all.
Sandi Johnston -
This chalk art I did last week was a “Love” message 2 my neighbors. The stick figures across the bottom are supposed 2 represent my dog Grover & me & my grandchildren.
Sandy also shared a picture of a "LUV" rock she found. She found this as she was walking along Sand Creek. She thinks that it would be a great project while we stay at home to make these "LUV" rocks and put them around town. I agree!
Larry & Pam Trussell -
We go somewhere almost every day to walk. Keep the bird feeders and corn, etc full for our menagerie of birds and squirrels. Did a 1000 piece puzzle. Visit the grand kids on messenger video. Enjoying getting outside to work on the yard.
Ken, & Lori Knepper -
We enjoyed time together as Brett was home for a month. Brett has returned to his Lawrence apartment. Prayers please for his safety.
Ken and I continue to work full-time. Ken at the bank and I am working my DCF Quality Control job from home. I am balancing watching our 7 year old grandson and helping with his schooling. Enjoying time with his 2 yr old sister too but she is able to go to childcare. We did enjoy Easter together as a family.
Dean & Rita Allmon -

God is good. I get up ever day with something I want to accomplish. Sometimes it's big but sometimes it's small and ever day seems to be good. ((Jeri, this video is for you!))
Paul & Rojean DuBois -
Sewing quilt “rows” and masks.
Great grands just came to play on swings and draw with chalk for a bit. Love to see them even with distancing.

Like everyone else, I'm staying home letting my hair grow out while I read, sew, walk my doggie, cook/bake, and FaceTime with family and friends. Glad to hear everyone is doing well.

Bev McGee -
It was Melissa's 45th birthday yesterday, I'm visiting while distancing myself and my brother Ron is visiting too! I made cinnamon rolls, rather than a cake.
I stay busy taking care of my yard, walking, watching birds & movies, and reading the Daily Bible. I've enjoyed the Sunday Services that are provided online and calls from Nate & Scott.
Have a great day!

Check out our little Easter egg! This is Mallorie's baby, Willow,
born at the end of February. Can't hold her though!
Jim & Donna Anderson -
Jim and I stay busy with our granddaughters, or when on our own, we read, do house/yard chores, knit, jigsaw puzzles, and cook, eat, clean up and repeat! We appreciate the church's services and those giving their talents to those services...Scott, Helen, Kelli, Mary, Vada & company and Tricia. The telephone calls are appreciated also.
Brooklyn and Lexi have been mastering their bikes and we enjoy walks together and lots of games & activities. Brooklyn read a book to me while looking at it upside down. She loves to play school and she is a teacher who requires the student's best! Lexi learned to knit stocking hats. This is a toddler/preschool size one. Maybe it will be on a future "Mitten" tree.

and me -
Working on things mostly from home. Bowie is a great helper? Taking the dogs on car rides to get out of the house - Bowie is lovin' the car rides! While my old boy Doc would prefer to "nap" most of the day - and wishes Mr. Anderson the cat would learn how to practice social distancing.
My niece Kirstyn just got some baby ducks! And if you know me at all, you know I love dogs and DUCKS! These two are too precious!! Kirstyn is giving them SWIMMING Lessons! ADORBS!
She is looking for name suggestions....
Any clever ideas out there??
Bob & Marilyn Sjorgen -
Since we've been having such inconsistent weather, I've enjoyed my indoor garden!
Libby Trusell -
I’m enjoying seeing people go by as I sit on the porch swing. Let me know if you need masks as I have lots of material and supposed to get 100 yards of elastic—I even made a mask for my stone goose!
Sue Ice -
Sue out for one of her many trike rides!
It has been an absolute
joy to put this together.
