April Was A Family Month For Us

This month started off with Julie joining me in Oklahoma. I had no idea how much we would enjoy our time in our cabin retreat. It's so relaxing. We are so thankful for the time we get to spend watching deer, raccoons, ducks, cows, and turkeys. I had the fewest trips of any month of…

March Got Crazy Busy

We kicked the month of March off with our annual family Preds game in honor of Sparrow's birthday. It's so fun to get to all go to the game together and sit close to the ice. I love our little family traditions. Then I was off to Oklahoma and South Alabama to help churches, then…

Julie makes sure that when December first rolls around the Wideman house looks like a winter wonderland.…

A September To Remember

September began with Julie and I going on a different kind of vacation. It was a bucket list vacation. Julie has never gotten to see the Grand Canyon. She's flown over it, and been near it doing concerts with Yancy but never got to see it. I told her it was just a big hole…

Summer Time, Summer Time, Sum-Sum-Summer Time

Summer Time is crazy here in Widemanville. This by far is Yancy's busiest time. Camps, VBS openings and closings, Family Concerts and Festivals which means it's Julie's busiest time too.
