"I owe everything to my Savior, Jesus Christ. He has given me hope and continues to give me a future. I now know after so many trials in my life, that He does listen to me and He will answer my prayers. I no longer have to think about seeking Jesus, He is in my thoughts all day long. My heart knows my Savior’s voice. When He calls me to prayer, I obey. When I ask to sit with Him in counsel, He is always there. If it weren’t for the trials in my life I would never have developed the faith I have today. There is no longer any question, there is no longer the “Why is this happening”, there is only trust because my Father in heaven is always faithful and just."– Liz Dixon

Back To The Blogging World

We have a new place to call home. We have settled into our new house and are enjoying life here. Don't get me wrong. There are still plenty of boxes to be unpacked, or stored somewhere. Just don't look in the garage. We have enough of the essentials in place that a few more weeks won't hurt the unopened boxes. There has been little time for unpacking between school and church events and business trips. Shortly before we sold our home, we found a new home church. God has opened so many doors through this church and we are loving every minute of it. I look forward to telling you more about that later. The quads are riding the bus again this year, and are in school three hours each morning. It's going great! Logan is in a new school and is loving it! He has already learned so much and the school year has just begun. Most recently he has come home reciting scripture verses and telling us about the Trinity. I mean seriously! I could not be more proud. Today, Logan came home from church and has been singing "The B-I-B-L-E." How cute is that. I remember singing that as a child. It use to be that, if I went a while without writing on the blog, then that was a sign that something was wrong. However, for some time that has not been the case. Until recently, the Dixon fam has been wonderful and we have been enjoying life in the most normal way that we possibly can. I say until recently, due to the fact that as some of you may be aware of, I was hospitalized a couple weeks ago (after a surgery) and have been sick and trying to recover. I got a skin infection following a laparoscopic procedure. Some of you may have heard of this not so nice infection, MRSA. I am on heavy antibiotics trying to fight it off. Also, I have a ovarian cyst that continues to grow and get more and more painful each day. I'm on lots of pain meds to deal with that until it bursts, or my MRSA goes away and I can have surgery to remove it. We will see. So many friends and family have reached out to us and helped us with meals, laundry, babysitting, and cleaning and we are so grateful. You guys are awesome!! We love you!!
