Pre-Christmas Pictures

Peter —  December 24, 2020

Christmas Eve has come quickly!  We are long overdue a family post, so here are a few pictures from the past few weeks.  Everything is a bit strange this year, of course, but we are thankful that we have a busy household which is an extra blessing during various versions of lockdown.  In the past few months church has been at a village hall, in a field, just online, and in December, as guests in a big Anglican church building.  Other activities have been restricted and we are all getting used to using Zoom much more than we would prefer.

Meanwhile, family life continues.  In November our littlest turned 5 – where did that half decade go?

Here is Jessah with her Curious George cake (well done, Melanie!)

Jessah enjoying a few minutes with Joel at the dinner table.

At the beginning of December we managed to surprise all the children with Hannah arriving home early.  Everyone was genuinely shocked and thrilled to see her (including our friend Georgia – who is often at ours because of support bubble provisions!)

The three older girls back together – here enjoying a meal out with Mum and Dad (a replacement Christmas present since we couldn’t get to the theatre together in the summer . . . the gift kindly adjusted into a meal out!)

And the little two enjoying having Hannah back – here with matching hair styles!

This week we spent a few hours together as a family in Bourton-on-the-Water – a lovely Cotswold village.

Hannah and Jessah waiting patiently for their pizzas at lunch time!

Whole family selfie with the mid-river Christmas tree in the background.

Christmas Day is coming soon, and these two are especially excited.  Here is their little bedroom tree getting decorated in anticipation of the big day!

Thank you for praying for us during these months.  We don’t know what is going to happen in the next weeks, but we anticipate further restrictions.  Thankfully our God is not restricted and so we continue to trust Him for life change in the home, in the church, and across the globe!

Introducing: The Little Him Book!

Here is a brief introduction to The Little Him Book:

And here are a few kind words from friends:

 

The Little Him Book is now Shipping!

Peter —  November 25, 2020

Peter’s new book, The Little Him Book, is now shipping in the USA as well as the UK/Europe.  It was originally scheduled for release earlier in the year, but Covid-19 delayed the launch date until now.  So it is great to finally have this book available!

If you are local we have copies available.  Otherwise, we will put our affiliate links at the bottom of this post.  (Anything you order through these links will add a few pence/cents to our support – thank you.)

We have been encouraged by early responses, and hearing of people buying multiple copies to give away (Christmas is coming!)  If you are able to review the book on Goodreads, Amazon, 10ofThose.com, and on your social media accounts (please tag Peter so that we can see it), that would be a huge help.  There are so many new books coming out all the time, so any help in promoting this book will be massively appreciated.

Here are a few of the endorsements which have been a huge encouragement to us:
