Seth Andrew Ferrill entered this world at 12:25 on Jan. 23rd (01-23 of '09 my Mom pointed out). He was 7lbs 1.5oz and 20.5 inches long.

Potatoes, Potatoes, Potatoes, and Eggs

Some years ago my next-eldest brother taught me how to make fried potatoes, and ever since it's been one of my favorite things to serve for breakfast. Today I taught my youngest brother how to make them and also did my own variation of "Potatoes O'Brien". Here's what resulted:

Our usual fried potatoes:

The same thing done with sweet potatoes (for those of us on diets):

And the "Potatoes O'Ferrill":

Potatoes, anyone?

Somewhat Dearly Departed

While we were in California, I not only got invited to run a dance immediately after we returned, but I also heard about an internship opportunity with the National Center for Family Integrated Churches. I've considered interning at Vision Forum for some time now, having had an older brother go through that experience. If you read the information on the internship page of the NCFIC website, you'll see that one of the main things the interns will be doing during our five month stay is building out the organization's website.

If you know me very well, you can already tell that this would be a perfect fit for my skillset and interests. Thanks to I'm sure over generous recommendations from some good friends I'm starting on the 29th of January and as I mentioned won't be back probably for five months. I would appreciate your prayers as I prepare for this exciting development God has placed in my path. My personal prayer is that God would use this to teach me new things both technically and theologically, and that I would be a credit to my family and my church as I serve there.
