God’s Christmas gift to me and Dana!

I’ll just jump to the chase: I’M GOING TO BE A DADDY! That’s right! This Christmas the Lord has blessed me and Dana with the news of having a kid, due to arrive sometime around August 6th. We’re both super excited and can’t wait for August to be here. In the meantime, we’re doing our best to prepare for the huge transition (if that’s even possible).

Dana blogged about the announcement tonight, too. Read her post about the best Christmas gift.

Thanks to all of you who replied to my Twitter update yesterday when I first made the announcement online. Dana and I both appreciate it that you guys are joining us in our excitement.

  • Congradulations Tim!

  • Congrats! Children are such a blessing.

  • Congrats! That's a great Christmas gift!

  • CONGRATULATIONS! Children do change your life—in a way that you don't know how you ever existed without them. You will also be able to relate God's love for us with a whole new understanding.

    Congratulations! Being a dad is the best thing that's ever happened to us. Don't forget to teach the baby how it too can be debt free. haha


  • Congratulations, TIM! Being a daddy is the best thing in the world!

  • Justin Van Reed

    Congratulations Tim!

    congrats tim!
    parenthood is the coolest thing i’ve ever been a part of!

  • Life will never be the same. Enjoy what God has blessed you with!

  • Congrats Tim! This will be such an amazing experience for you guys!

    My only advice .. go to sleep .. seriously, just go to sleep now, and don’t wake up until August. You’re going to need every second of it, because you’re going to be a walking zombie for 1-2 months.

  • Congrats Tim! Neva and I are expecting baby #2 in July 09! I can’t wait to share stories @ GROUP in Feb/Mar!

  • Kevin Evans
