Please pray for Dr. Kent Hovind and his family. As some of you know, a few years ago he was secnented to 10 years in prison for what amounts to tax evasion. I have personally read over much of the legal briefs and I have been on conference calls with his lawyers. This adds up to nothing more than an attack on the church.Dr. Hovind is in good spirits and he is winning people to Christ while in prison. But he needs to be home with his family preaching the gospel. To learn more about Kent Hovind and his case or to write to him visit: I understand that there are some out there that disagree with some of Dr. Hovind's teaching, just like they do with Hank Hennagraff, Billy Graham or pick your evangelist. I would ask that you keep your comments positive or please don't make them. Thank you.

Aw, I loved watching those viedos. So fun! I'm glad you guys got to enjoy the weather! I was inside all day doing some computer work. Next time, I'm getting out there and doing something! :) I hope your garden works out! I've always thought that would be so neat to have, but my backyard is so rocky that it doesn't work too well for us. That and I had my dad plant some sunflowers for me a year or two back and little bunnies came and ate them. haha Oh well! Someday. :) What song did you use in your second video? I really liked it!
