"I think the wood stove is my dad's favorite thing because he doesn't have to run heat all winter."
-Tori Bates

  1. Christian love always causes one to invest his/her life in another. What a blessing to see a family - that invest in each other. God gets glory!

  2. We heat with wood, too, up here in the north country. Nothing can get you warmer on a sub-zero day.

  3. My heart goes out to Nathan, wise beyond his years. Loving someone is never easy, so it is important to make sure when you give your heart away that you know for sure. Ashley and Nathan are great people and their sprint shines threw by the grace of god.

  4. Nathan and Ashley who knows might get back together
