I Still Believe by Jeremy Camp


How can one hold onto to their faith in the midst of the most trying circumstances? Jeremy Camp shares his powerful testimony in IStill Believe, a book that will challenge every reader to strengthen the foundation of their faith.

Jeremy Camp, award winning Christian music artist, came from humble beginnings. His parents turned to Christ after struggling with substance abuse in their young adult years. Jeremy was brought up in a loving, Christian home, but they were very poor. Yet, he never felt in need. After his own conversion experience as a late teen during summer camp, Jeremy dove deep into the word of God and never looked back. After high school, Camp moved to California to go to college and while in California, he met Melissa. She was a passionate Christian young woman who swept Jeremy off his feet. Melissa was diagnosed with cancer after they met, but after treatment, it appeared as though she was in remission. Jeremy and Melissa were married, but after 3 ½ months of marriage, Melissa died. It was after her death and struggling through emotions that come with grief that Jeremy wrote the song “I Still Believe.”Jeremy goes on in the book to continue to share God’s faithfulness and love for him. He has since married for a second time, is the proud dad of three kids and continues to share his story through the music he writes.

I knew a bit about Jeremy Camp’s story before reading the book, but I didn’t know all of the details. I now have an even greater appreciation for the song “I Still Believe” and I find a great amount of comfort and confidence in Jeremy’s story. God can take all circumstances and work them out for good and for the furthering of his kingdom.

I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my review. I was not required to write a positive review.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
