Family Time In Northwoods

This year, we were blessed to once again gather at a beautiful retreat center that is within a few hours drive of the Waller Family Farm. Together in the Northwoods Mealtime with the Wallers is often a great time to connect and talk over lots of plans and ideas as well as reminisce on fun memories from throughout the day. A pontoon boat ride allowed us to get a good tour of the lake complete with the eagle’s nest and beavers dam. David’s brother, Adam is quite the calculated adventurer. He has always enjoyed doing things a little...

A West-Coast Escapade

During our trip throughout the West-Coast, we had the blessing of combining a week-long conference with a vacation celebrating Priscilla’s Birthday and topped the whole trip off with a wedding of some friends. This two week escapade was packed full of fun and family time. Not everyone has the privilege of traveling like we do, but with it can come some challenges such as long lines at airports with tons of luggage and tired children and fellow travelers. Homeschool Conference Here David addresses the group of volunteers and staff who...

Arkansas Wedding!

Arkansas Wedding!

On June 21st, we had the privilege of witnessing Jill Duggar joining Derick Dillard for a life of wedded bliss. What a blessing to see two vibrant young people begin a life focused on the Lord, each other, and those around them whom they can serve. One of the main draws in taking the nine hour trip down  to Arkansas is the fellowship with family and friends. We snapped a picture of the arch as we were passing through St. Louis. David’s family surprised us by also coming to the wedding. We enjoyed going out to dinner following the...

May Adventures

If you were on your death bed, your last dying wish would probably not be to have had had a better car or that you had spent more time on your favorite hobby. It would probably be something to do with relationships and wishing you had spent more time with your family, deepened your relationship with your wife, or spent more time with your children. Instead of waiting until something tragic happens, why not start today? That has been what we have desired to do. David’s sister Sarah has been ministering in a ladies prison in Florida for...

Time With Family

Time With Family

Around a month ago, we camped out at Chick-fil-a in line to be one of the first one hundred guests served at an opening restaurant. Another restaurant was going to be opening soon and Priscilla’s brothers, Nathan and David Keller were excited about the prospect of being able to go camping for the first time. David still had some office work to do, so he brought his mobile office with him and finished some much needed work. David’s brothers were also coming into town for a wedding so they came a day or two early to also join us...

Paul is a Big Brother!!!

Friends and family, Paul is going to have a lot more responsibility come mid November 2014 because a little sibling is on the way! We are so excited to be expecting another little blessing. A critical decision when getting married is not just who you will marry, but do you agree on the issues of children and family life. The most important aspect of course is not what his or her opinion is, but do you both agree to embrace God’s opinion and love for children. Since the beginning of our marriage we felt led to trust the Lord with the...

Paul’s First Birthday!

Paul’s First Birthday!

Following Waller family tradition, David got up early on Sunday morning, March 16 and made a batch of “Swedish Pancakes” for Paul’s birthday breakfast–A special treat that is made to be remembered. Often, it goes along with an omelet, bowl of cereal or fruit. The Swedish Pancake recipe is so simple, most Wallers have it memorized: 1 C Flour, 1 C Milk, 3 Eggs, 1 T of Sugar, 1 T Oil, a pinch of salt and few drops of Vanilla extract. It should have a very smooth consistency to make a flat, but great crape. Once cooked on...

Weather: Chicago or Florida?

Already a quarter of the year is nearly past and we have had much happen. We have been so busy we have not taken the time to let you all know what we have been up to. Recently, we had an opportunity to head down to Florida for some more prison ministry. While David took time in the prisons along with a team of people, Priscilla and her family did much of the cooking for the team. People from all across the country came together for a seven day of intensive ministry opportunity in five prisons in Florida. On one particular day, the Assistant...

Mexico Mission Trip

  This past week we were on a missions trip in Mexico. In 2008, a church youth group came to the ministry where we have served so all of their young people could attend a Journey to the Heart. These young people had worked all sorts of odd jobs making and selling tamalis, washing cars and cleaning houses to save up enough money to travel up to Chicago and attend this ten-day life-changing retreat. On that particular Journey to the Heart, Priscilla helped run the kitchen and immediately won the hearts of many of the young people with her...
