Joy to the World!

Each year as a family, we journey to the Teton mountain range. We camp at the base of gorgeous mountains, surrounded by nature and a great dome of sky.

The mountains, with their beauty and grandeur, invite us to contemplate our true place in the universe. Our thoughts are drawn to the miracle of creation. We look at the majestic mountains and think of God, our Creator.

We see how many stars there really are in the night sky - without competition from city lights. We witness that some things are most beautiful without our interference. We climb the terrain and see the raw courage of a flower pushing through a boulder. We watch how nature renews and balances. We take time to be awe-inspired.

In this setting, we see that we have work to do: more love to give, more of our own character to refine, more to teach to and learn from our daughters.

We are grateful for the joy we find in this magnificent journey of life. We are surrounded by a beautiful world: filled with love and laughter, family and friends.
