Hello, My name is Ester. I absolutley adore Jesus! He is the center of my life. I am nothing without him. He has allowed a dream of mine to come true. I've always wanted a little boutique. I've been praying for the right time, the time is now! I am the mother of 3. I love my children, they keep life so exciting. I homeschool and I have one in traditional school. I love to craft, it could be a full time job. I love it that much. I like sewing, baking, bow- making, and all things family! I am married to my highschool sweetheart, you can read about that on my other blog. www.loveinmyhouse.blogspot.com.

Every year since we've moved to Memphis we celebrate Hanukkah with friends. My dear friend Miriam makes the best latkes ever! The other food is amazing too. We are not Jewish but we do enjoy celebrating biblical holidays. I mean our Savoir was Jewish. So I guess that makes it alright. I like to take what learn from this celebration and point it all back to Jesus. 
 We're the most eclectic group of friends. We all come celebrating something different but the love shared among us all is the same.  I wouldn't change a thing.

Life choices.

When we started down this path of becoming local missionaries my mind couldn't fully comprehend the depth of service needed. Living life with people is truly loving your neighbor as you love yourself. So far I've experienced joy of babies being born, anger that something was stolen, concern for children without, selflessness as I put other people's need before my own. Today however I'm feeling sadness and grief as a sweet young mother has to make the decision to take her baby off of life support. This young lady has shown so much strength through this all. She birth 2 babies, cared for them both for 6 weeks and now making a hard decision for one. I can't imagine what she feels, my heart aches for this family.
This is the sister we're helping care for while the family is at the hospital with the other. Every time I see her face, I pray for life. Life will be different growing up without her twin.
I'm all in my feelings #nooneshouldeverseethiskindofpicture

Baby it's cold outside!

Hello everybody!! This has been one crazy week. We have officially been without heat, hot water or a stove for a week and 2 days. Right after thanksgiving I kept smelling gas in the house. I called the electric company and they confirmed a leak and turned the gas off. We've spent our days dealing with the plumber, code enforcement and the electric company. Let's just say they are ALL on their own time schedule. I never thought I would be so ready for my stove back. I'm just thanking God because I know the we were protected from something that he saw. I'm trying hard not to complain and see the beauty in this all. 

Yesterday at church(house church)we had an emergency. Right as I was pulling up the ambulance was right behind me. Much to my surprise they were going to where we were going. Before I could get to the door someone came out to fill me in. The twin to this sweet baby girl stopped breathing. She's in ICU at the children's hospital right now. Please keep her in your prayers. I felt very honored that the family called and asked if I would keep the well twin while they are there supporting the mom. I love babies and I was glad to help!
