Clip of Carlin yodeling at Lawson's concert in NC (the full version is on YouTube @ ) I'm so thankful for everyone who attended the concert! There's no way to describe how grateful we are for your part in helping Levine Children's Hospital and all of the amazing children there. #CarlinBates #yodeling

Happy Anniversary, John & Bizz! Thank you for being such a fun loving couple! Y'all are such a great example of a joyful marriage! It's refreshing to see a young couple that gets along so well and enjoys each other so much! You complete each other and bring out the best in each other, and that's just how it should be! I love you both, and I'm so glad God brought you together ❤️#JohnAndAlyssaWebster

Happy Birthday, Warden! You are so much fun, and when I think of you, I think of all the smiles you put on everyone's faces! There's certain people that you describe as being "the life of the party," and that's YOU! Wherever you are, there's a group gathered around you of all ages- young and old! That just shows what a great personality you have! You've never met a stranger! Your outgoing personality has won you more friends in these 14 years than I've ever had! And I'm certainly thankful that you're my friend! I love you❤️ #WardenJusticeBates #Skywalk@McCloudMountain #TheChimneys

Bobby's graduation in Florida gave us a great excuse for a few days at the beach! 🦀🏝☀️🏄🏖 #Ellie #Callie #Addee #Jud #Carlin #Jeb

Happy Mother's Day to two of the best moms ever from two of the most blessed kids anywhere! Thank you, Meema & Mama Jane for being such loving, patient, forgiving, flexible, available, encouraging moms! We love y'all so much 😘❤️🌹

Happy Birthday, Carson! You are such a cuddle bug, and I'm so happy you love coming to Granny's! It's the highlight of my days! Nothing is quite as special as hearing you call for me! And your hugs melt my heart! Thank you for being such a happy little blessing! #CarsonPaine #TwoYearsOld #BirthdayBoy

Congratulations, Bobby!!! I guess those wedding bells are sounding just a little bit closer- one degree down, and one to go! Hurry up, Tori lol!!! We are so proud of you, Bobby, for the past 4 years of hard work and excellent testimony! I know graduation is bittersweet- great to be done, but hard to say all the goodbyes! But I can't wait to see what all the Lord has in store for you next (and I'm super glad that Tori's on that list!!) #BobbySmith #ToriBates #PensacolaChristianCollege #BibleAndYouthMinistryDegree

"Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah." Psalm 61:1-4

Practicing a song about the names of God that they learned recently! 😊 #Judson #Jeb

Happy Birthday, Erin! I've heard the expression of a "mini me" and you fit the bill when it comes to personalities! We think alike! I could plan a fun day for you, and you could plan mine, and I think the outcome would still be the same as if we'd made the choices ourselves. Our responses are identical; our perspectives are the same; we like all the same things! You make me laugh and smile no matter how discouraged or upset I may be. It's no wonder whenever there used to be trouble brewing, all the kids would send you to do the explaining, cause I could never be mad; your "Ann of Green Gable" apologies always made me laugh! You still know how to brighten every day! Spending just a few minutes on the phone with you or hanging out always leaves me just a little bit happier! You inspire me as a Christian too! Your faithfulness in your Bible study, prayer, nursing home ministry, church, and your convictions has changed many people's lives- especially in your own family! Thank you for being such a wonderful role model! I love you so much, but even more, I respect you as one of the best Christians I've ever met! #ErinPaine #ChadPaine #BirthdayGirl

I'm so thankful God places godly men in our paths to set an example for us! Tim Tomlinson and Scott Pauley have had such a tremendous impact on my children through Crown College, and we are grateful for their ministry! ..... And a HUGE congratulations to Nathan for completing his instructor's pilot license! We are so excited to have you back home! (It's hard enough for me to picture you flying, but teaching others?? 😳😄✈️ Can I be first lol???) #TimTomlinson #NathanBates #ScottPauley #CrownCollegeOfTheBible #Bodacious #HeCanTeachYouHowToFly
