About Us

Meet the Elmers

We're the Elmers.  Jonathan, Sarah, Vivien (6), Elijah (5), Evelyn (5), Jack (4), Benjamin (2), Luke (1), and Baby #7 to arrive this fall!

We write this blog as a tribute to our family, so that we may never forget the journey we are on, and that we may live like the Israelites in our ability to go back and look at what the Lord has done.  We don't have all the answers concerning the ways to live, and we think a bunch of formulas are the last thing anyone needs. However, what we do all need is to fan the flames of our hearts in sitting at the feet of Jesus to allow Him to change us through His Word and His Spirit.  That's what life is all about.

We're thankful for our marriage, our children, and our full life.  But most of all, we are thankful for every breath that the Lord gives us this side of heaven.

"Whom have I in heaven but you?  There is nothing on earth I desire besides you.  My heart and my flesh may fail me, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." 

Psalm 73:25-26
