that I am Olivia's mom. The kind of adult she will become depends on the parenting that I give her. The childhood that she enjoys (or doesn't always enjoy) depends on the environment I raise her in.

"Evangelicals can fall into something that really is not very far from existential theology without knowing it. One form of such 'evangelical existentialism" is the attitude, if not the words, "Don't ask questions, just believe." This sort of attitude was always wrong, but it is doubly wrong today when we are surrounded with a monolithic consensus that divides reason from nonreason and always puts religious things in the area of nonreason. We must call each other away from this idea. It is not more spiritual to believe without asking questions. It is not more biblical. It is less biblical, and eventually it will be less spiritual, because the whole man will not be involved. We must be absolutely determined not to fall into the trap of saying or implying, 'Don't ask questions, just believe.' It must be the whole man who comes to understand that the gospel is truth and believes because he is convinced on the basis of good and sufficient reason that it is truth.

Rob made me a list of things he wanted me to do today. When he gave it to me (after waking up at 6:30 with Liv) I edited it. I thought it was pretty funny, so I'm going to share it. Rob's notes are in regular type, mine are in italics:
Now that the news is official...
I'd just like to inform everyone about how amazing my husband is.
