The Annual Turning Hearts Celebration, held on our farm on Labor Day 2011, has once again come and gone. It was a wonderful day full of food, fun activities, music, and challenges from God's Word for the entire family!
Here is the day in pictures....
sweet young ladies who were such a blessing with their servants' hearts and cheerful smiles
more helpers cutting melons...
the Bates Family came all the way from TN to share in music and God's Word. What a blessing they were to everyone! We were encouraged by their love for the Lord and each other.

Mr. Bates shared two powerful messages, "Beware Where You Stare; It May Become a Snare" & "One Failure No Family Can Afford To Make"

Throughout the day, we held drawings for various resources that would encourage families
"What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought, since Jesus came into my heart..."
attentiveness by even the young children was so sweet!
