He also has 3 jobs. It is kind of a joke between us about all of the jobs he's had over the last 5 years, but he does what he does to make ends meet and take care of us. They are all super part-time jobs. He's a research assistant for Dr. Sweeney, he edits a series of bulletin inserts called "Glimpses" through Christianity Today, and he gets to work for D. A. Carson (he has really enjoyed getting to know this man and seeing how humble, kind, and what a servant he is).
He's also been able to get a few things published. If you'd like to read them, here are the links - I think they're great, of course!
Article: Passing the Plate (about church offerings)
Book Review: Tried As By Fire
Book Review: Twentieth-Century Shapers of Baptist Social Ethics
Article: Walk the Aisle (about the alter call)
I must say that although he is a busy guy, he will drop it all in a moment's notice if he senses I need or want anything at all. I try not to take advantage of that too much :) We love our little family, and I love the way he takes care of us, puts us first, and enjoys the simple things with us. We are really looking forward to the 2nd week of May, when the semester's over, and we can take a break and enjoy the WARM weather (oh how I am ready for it!). Only one more semester of coursework and then another 1 1/2-2 years of studying for his comprehensive exams and writing his dissertation. More on the dissertation to come at another time.

Last week we managed to get them all to hold still and be happy for this picture.

Isn't this a sweet sweater? My friend Jenni's friend's mom made it :) And Jenni's daughter Kara gave it to Anna for Christmas.
She has a few nicknames already, but the most suitable one is "Sweet Little Anna."
This girl LOVES smoothies. I think she would keep drinking them until she explodes.
