Weekend in Omaha

tss-road-trip.jpgIt’s been slow around TSS because this weekend the family and I returned to Omaha for my sister’s wedding. It was a great time back in Nebraska and it happened to coincide with the Red Sox winning the pennant and the Don Whitney conference at OBC. Sadly, there was no time to take in the conference Saturday, however, it was a great surprise on Saturday morning to run into some OBC-ers and Dr. Whitney at a local Starbucks. We were blessed to hear Whitney preach at OBC on Sunday morning. I’m told the weekend conference went well and you can get the audio here.

The outdoor wedding on Saturday was great. Weddings always provide an opportunity to catch up with family and friends we’ve not seen in a long time. As you can see below, our wedding gifts are usually printed and bound. It was an honor to give Tim and Amy a copy of Dave Harvey’s newest book on marriage, When Sinners Say ‘I Do’: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage (Shepherd Press: 2007). No doubt, one of the top books this year and perhaps the best book on marriage in print. If you don’t have it, I highly recommend it! (And it makes for a great wedding gift, too.)

Well, it’s good to be back in MN. And congratulations, Tim and Amy!

  1. We are well on our way to the end of “When Sinners Say ‘I Do'” and are LOVING every bit of it. We’re learning new words too, which we have decided are part of a secret Sovereign Grace language we are starting to adapt to. I do have to say, the Pottery Barn dishes are amazing, but the lessons we are learning and the challenging points this book makes are more than any Katherine-style place setting can serve up. Thanks, Tone and Kare! We were so blessed to have you there with us on Saturday. God made the weather perfect, didn’t He?! With love, Tim and Amy Martens. XOXO

  2. Ames, read it once every year of your marriage. And oh, how I was moved by the final chapter. Incredible book. … It was a joy to share the day with you guys. Look forward to seeing you soon! B-icka
