Twice Adopted

We are so proud of our daughter Jalynn Grace (11). She committed her life to Jesus today and followed His example and command in baptism. We rejoice in her new life in Christ and adoption into the family of God.

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. ~ Romans 8:15-17a

Perfect 10!!

We are so very excited to announce that our four new additions - Jalynn, Josie, Bryan and Elly - are now officially SHACKELFORDS!!  We are so blessed to permanently add the four beautiful children to our family.  Thank you for your prayers during this almost 2 year process!  (Okmulgee, Oklahoma)
