My Week Through Selfies and Pictures

Just a post to show what Tennessee life and working in the office of Above Rubies is like. Of course we don't have a wedding going on every week... but there is always something chaotic happening :D

February 9

It was a getting chillier. We even got some snow - not really getting very much this year, the Tennesseans all loved it :D

The wedding day is getting closer...but we're having a blast together. This girl is so awesome!

Some of my favorite/ most used possessions: laptop, set of interchangeable knitting needles, and Bible :) 

February 10

During lunch I went on a nice brisk hike up a steep hill.

Hemming Esther's wedding dress... getting it all ready for the big day!

Celebrating the success of the dress being done! We made got chocolate and watched a movie:)

February 11

A long day of editing Power Of Motherhood for Above Rubies. Editing can be fun...but it's tiring on the eyes, too. ;b

February 12

Making the blessed tee-shirts.

Hanging my wash out...isn't it all bright and colorful?

Cleaning house and listening to music... such a great Friday! :)

Ending the day with a movie, Phantom of the Opera. The movie was great. Then it ended and Esther and I got in a fun, but heated argument over it. 

Such is life with us :D ;)

We each picked out the other's outfit then did a photo shoot. It was so cold outside! 

Walking to a friend's house... it's pretty nice out :)

Watching three really awesome people work on THM videoing. Very interesting... ;)

One of my best friend's... spending a relaxful day with her family.

Did my hair up to make it look shorter ;D

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish. I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am. But my perception  has changed with experience. It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own. But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish. I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural. Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream. " Mom ," I said. "He's drinking soda!"  Left to right, back row: Jonny, Jonathan (Dad). Front row: Jacob, Keturah, Rebekah (Mom), Jonah (on Mom's

Peace During Patience

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” - Philippians 4:6 My family and I were sitting around the breakfast table several months ago. Mom had just read this verse. One of the kids laughed incredulously, “What is it saying? Be careful for nothing – live recklessly?” “No,” I answered quickly. My tone was very matter-of-fact, blunt, as if I were all-knowing. “It means do not worry.” The kids all nodded among themselves and life continued on for them. But for me life paused at my words. I had heard this verse soooooooo many times. I had always known what it meant. But now? Now it really meant something . “Do not worry.” This path I've chosen. I can not see it. I can not feel it. I do not know where I am. I have chosen to follow God, and no other. But why did He hide the light from my eyes? I must take a step forward. But I do not want to. How long w

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello. My name is Greg.  I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes. "If only..." But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me. It is cold. My clothes are thin. My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance.  I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon.  They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know. It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me. As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted. Convicted, but not  guilty. Years.  68 years for standing against injustice. How many years have I sat in here? I have forgot. All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials). I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release.  {If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing} I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day. Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very p
