About Us

Grace & peace to you from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rachel and I (Bret) are glad you have visited our blog. We were recently married in June of 2006. We live in Fort Worth, Texas. I am a student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS); as well as an employee of SWBTS, doing both welding and plumbing work for them. Rachel is my incredible wife. She takes care of me (which is pretty hard work), enjoys ministering to other women, and does a wonderful job with hospitality at the President’s house here at SWBTS.

We have designed this blog not only with our families in mind, but with the Lord’s church in mind. It is our prayer that it might serve in pointing people to Jesus Christ, that they might be more encouraged to love and obey him, in order that he might be glorified in all the nations. “For from him, and through him, and to him are all things, to him be the glory forever. Amen” (Rom 11:36).

Soli Deo Gloria,

Bret & Rachel

    Thank you God for Bret and Rachel. I love these children of yours with all my heart. Joyful tears flow freely from my eyes as this prayer is written, for I know you love them more than I. They have taught me much and continue to do so by sharing your Word and love. Lift them up high today dear Father. Let them know across the miles that they are being held up in prayer and in my thoughts today. Again, Father…..I thank you.

    I just wanted to thank you for your website. I could not find an email to personally write to you, but I guess this will suffice. I am considering enrolling at Southwestern this fall for the M.Div. program. Coming to seminary with a wife and a son is a tremendous challenge, but one that I look forward to. I wanted to thank you because I am encouraged by your God-focused view of the home and the Scriptures. Please keep going! I can’t wait to hear more of your thoughts.

    I just happened to stumble across your blog, which is amazing by the way, and saw where you go to school. My cousin Pat Thomas studied seminary there not long ago, and I believe he’s still there studying for a PhD. I just wondered if you knew of him. . .

    I am glad you found the blog. I know Pat Thomas! I work with him at the school’s physical plant. I will ask him about you.
