The pictures tell the story...

In the last couple of months… here's what we've been up to.  The pictures tell the story.  Click any image below to enlarge for viewing… and thanks for stopping by for a Cup O' Joe with me.
Last month's road trip with Jarrod Briggs. Three days. Three different Wisconsin locations.  Disciplemaking Is Relationships training.


Disciplemaking Is Relationships training with youth leaders from the Forrest Lakes District (WI) of the Evangelical Free Church of America. First stop: Rice Lake, WI.  It's not Canada, but you can see it from there… eh?





Here's a picture of young man risking his life. Yes, that's my daughter Josey.


Two words: Milkshake Monday.  An Allison family tradition.


Why do a major mailing when you can do a major mailing par-tay? Thanks to the Whites and the Bartz families for all the fun and help with our Spring ministry update letter!


Exploring the possibilities for a Disciplemaking Learning Community in the Bloomington/Normal IL area. Exciting.


Whenever we do ministry together, we always call each other up the day before to make sure our outfits match. That's my brother from another mother, Shane Stacey, and we're at the Coffee Hound in Bloomington. 


I have a lot of favorite pastors… here are three… because these three are some of my best disciplemaking friends! From left to right: Jess Bartz, Dave Steinbeck, and Deveraux Hubbard.


If video doesn't appear, go here.
Most people think their kids are exceptional. Mine really are. :  ) Watch the last two laps of this race closely. That's our Aubrey coming in first at indoor state in this heat of the 4x400. Overall, the team got 6th in state… cutting off almost 30 seconds from their previous best time!


"We are the champions… we are the champions…."  Okay, 6th in Indoor State isn't quite "champions" but it's a great big deal where we live.  Congrats ladies!  (Aubrey on right.)


Celebrating the birthdays of my best disciplemaking friends and Cadre staffers Dave and Rennie Garda. I like celebrating with them because they are older than me. They are grandparents (see their newest grand baby there on the right) while Stacy and I are still having babies because we're young. LOL.


It was my honor to join these guys on the radio for WBNH's Share 2012. They must be desperate for guests.


Swinging with some of my girls. Ivy looks like she's digging it.


Doing the Mentoring Connection training for the staff and volunteer leaders of Heartland Community Church in Bloomington/Normal, IL.


Easter Sunday celebration with all of my kids… and my mom (next to Emily), Aunt Betty (my kids had never met her until this day) and my uncle Bob and Aunt Jeanine. It was a great day of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus together.


Libby is playing volleyball… and she means business.  See the "war paint"?


Some of the guys from the Peoria Area Leadership Community Ongoing (plus a few extras).  It was the best lunch ever… and here's what we did.


Last weekend in Ames, IA. Disciplemaking Is Relationships training.
