A tour of Guam

In case anyone is interested, I thought I'd share some of our exeriences on Guam with you.  I have billion more but this should do for now. LOL

Our first day on Guam.  We arrived at night so we had to wait til morning to look out and see what was out there.  The view from our hotel balcony was impressive.

One of Guam's Motto's: Guam, it rains a lot, even during dry season.

Thanksgiving in Guam

Christmas in the tropics


A rough life, no? 



Guam looks so beautiful! Is it like Hawaii without all the tourists? How would you describe it? Touristy? A place to visit with kids? Keep posting your experiences and photos in case I never get there!

I loved looking at the pictures. My dh once was talking to someone about a possible job in Guam..I didn't even know at that where Guam was. I loved the tropical Christmas picts.

These pictures are BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I just wanted to stop by because you had put "CHCHC Notification" in your comments and I just wanted to be sure that you wanted to be notified of the posts. Please email me ( and let me know if you (that way I have your email from that... there were more than one of you who did this, and I just don't have the time to find everyone's email addresses out, and also want to make sure that you want the notifications).

Blessings to you and yours! I'm excited for our Challenge!

In Him,

I had some dear Navy friends that were assigned to go to Guam and the wife ABSOLUTELY did not want to go. She had the entire church praying and urged her husband to do everything in his power to make the Navy change his assignment. In the end they were sent to Jacksonville instead.

Through it all, I never prayed how she wanted me to pray. As much as I loved her, I disagreed with her attitude and wondered what blessings she might miss out on by digging in her heels and refusing to go. I guess I'll never fully understand, not being in her shoes, but from these pictures, I can see some of the blessings she missed out on (even though the Lord DID bless them in Jacksonville).

I had this whole new entry all typed out regarding your question about how I would describe guam. Then I it post and the cable went out and I lost it. Wahhh! I'll have to recreate it again.

....your advent candle idea. That is to cool.

I can't go to your blog when my Elizabeth is nearby, she'll want to know when she can play with your daughter.

Your book list is something else I'm borrowing.

God bless,

I am sending out a "mass apology" to everyone I told about "The Clean Heart, Clean Home Challenge". I have received some comments in regard to leaving the button on people's blogs and I feel the best way to make sure there aren't others who are offended, is to apologize to those I sent the notice to.

I feel just horrible that some thought I was "advertising" in some way when my intention was to share with other homeschoolers what I was offering as encouragement and a way for us to join together.

If you are one who was upset by my post, please feel free to delete it and email me or leave a comment on my page and I will personally apologize. To those who have joined in The Challenge, I'm so looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us and hope we will all be able to bless our families and grow in the Lord through it! Thank you most importantly for seeing my heart. I never meant to disregard anyone's post when I left the comment about the Challenge, and want you all to know that anything you ever have to say to me, whether on topic or not, is more than welcome on my blog. I will also be making a new category on my blog that will list those of you who don't mind getting urgent prayer requests or information from time to time. I hope this way I will be able to avoid upsetting anyone similarly in the future.

Thanks for allowing me to comment on your blog. I hope you will accept my apology (and not be upset that I'm "off topic" from your post, but I have many people to get to still tonight).

In Him,

Amy Verlennich
