my favorite moments from 2017

I feel like 2017 flew by – does anybody else feel that way? Looking back over the year, I can’t believe all that happened – all the joys, tears, plans and surprises!

 

Here are the highlights of the Shaver Crew’s 2017

2017 has been a great year! We’ve had so many big things happen (like getting pregnant again AND purchasing a home). The Lord truly blessed us and has taught me a lot.

I think the biggest thing God taught me this year was that He is faithful! He knows the deep desires of our hearts, but ultimately, He gives us what we need (not necessarily what we want) and what will grow us closer to Him.

There is no doubt in my mind that 2018 will be a great year as well – full of more joys and learning experiences.
