Forest Home

We just returned from the mountains of Forest Home and once again had an incredible time.

God seems to meet us there on that mountain. I know He meets us in the valley too but it seems we can hear Him more clearly. It's probably the lack of distractions, the calm peaceful setting, the snow and the raging fire in the fireplace.

We've been coming to Forest Home for various retreats since 1999. The past two years we've been blessed by Forest Home and used their free two night Pastor's Cabin.

The kids love it too. They play in the snow, we hike, sled and adventure together. The pictures say it all.

During our stay I decided to have Riley shoot a video of me talking about snow and how it is an illustration of purity and how God cleanses us and makes us "white as snow"...a very serious moment...except our little comedian Aidan had plans of his own for this video shoot.

  1. looks like a blast. i’ll be honest with you… i was hoping for a snowball in the face in that video. it was hilarious 🙂

  2. i love piderman!

  3. I remember one of those retreats at Forest Home!! Dan and I loved getting to know you guys better that weekend. It was crazy snowy…our stupid little car had some trouble I seem to remember as well. I also recall that Riley came about 9 mos. after that weekend too. I think Forest Home probably brings back some great memories eh Jeremy and Janie? 🙂I couldn’t resist!! You can delete my comment if you want to!

  4. Hey Angie, that is so funny b/c my first draft had the information about Riley getting his “start” at Forest Home, but after not being able to load the video it wiped out my draft, then I forgot to put it back in…that is hilarious.We always remember that retreat for several reasons including that snow storm and your car getting stuck!!!Yes, Forest Home is definitely a “magical” place for us.

  5. aidan always cracks me up.i had such a nice chat (okay, i dunno if an hour counts as a chat or not) with your wifey today. she told me about your pictures and the trip to the mountains.How cool that looks. Glad you guys were able to go and relax.Have a great week!
