Photo Hunt ~ Architecture








hosted by TNChick




This barn and house was built with hands of troubled boys, my husband and I, our children, and volunteer help. When we look at these buildings we are amazed at God and what he can provide. The boys that live with us, come to the ranch, with very destructive hands. It is music to our ears when we hear one of the boys while giving a tour, I built this wall over here. They are so proud of what they have acomplished and begin to feel like they are being successful.

Proud! Most certainly!

Our barns, etc were all build by my father, grandfather, etc... while I didn't build them - I enjoy the use of them now as they are "handed down to me" and appreciate them.

Means a lot to know they were build with the love of my family.

No architecture is more beautiful than those done with your own hands. Great job, not just on the ranch and house, but with the troubled boys too. God bless you for your good work!

Wonderful pictures, no wonder the boys are proud of their work. You and your husband have a wonderful ministry and I'm sure countless live your love.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my site. I enjoyed my visit here too! I used to be a social work before I became a stay at home mom so I can relate so much to the things you go through there. What a wonderful and needed ministry you have at the ranch! I hope you won't have to let anymore kids go!

Climb that "thang!"
