Dear Friends and Family,

This is our first entry. We are so excited about what the new year is going to bring us. One of our goals is to try to keep in touch with those who have touched our lives in the past. We realize that with the busyness of life this may be the easiest way. We are hoping to make this a family effort so you will be seeing posts from all of us. Most of ya'll who are reading this already know us pretty well but we're going to go ahead and introduce ourselves and hopefully you (the readers) will get to know us better.

Jonny and Marseilles White

My name is Jonny and I'm the Dad. I am currently very busy. I am working on a Ph.D. in Church History at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, working full time at Huntington Learning Center, grading for a professor and teaching a class one night a week. I also have the privilege of serving as an elder at Grace Immanuel Church in LaGrange, KY. I love spending time with my family and reading books.

Hello! My name is Marseilles (Mar-say) and I'm the Mom of the White Family. Jonny and I have the privilege of raising a family that desires to honor and glorify God. My main priorities in my life right now are to serve God, encourage and be a help meet to my husband, and train my children. When I have a free moment I enjoy trying new restaurants, reading, and spending time with my family. In my idealistic world I would love to travel and see the world, but in my realistic world I am planted in Louisville, KY.


I am 15 years old. Doing school, playing games with my youngest brother, knitting and reading take up most of my time. My favorite books include: Mary Bunyan by Sallie Rochester Ford, The Pearl Maiden and The Brethren by H. Rider Haggard and of course the Bible. I love exploring woods, fields and any of God's creation! I also really like just hanging out and talking with my friends and family.


Hello everyone I'm Spencer and I'm 11 almost 12 and the oldest boy of the White clan. Present activities include school, reading, playing with my family and trying to glorify God. Some books I enjoy are The Chronicles of Narnia series, G.A. Henty's books and the Crown and Covenant series by Douglas Bond. On the other hand my favorite movies include Star Wars, Chronicles of Narnia, Hogan's Heroes and Facing the Giants.


Hi I'm Andrew! I'm 7 years old. I like to play games with my family and play with my toy soldiers! I like watching Davy Crockett, Star Wars and the Chronicles of Narnia. I like to read with Mommy. Right now we're reading Scout. My favorite restaurant is Frisch's Big Boy! I love my family and love to spend time with them!

Oh, my goodness! I cannot believe how big the boys are and Victoria just gets prettier every time I see her :-)

Wow! I cannot believe how old the children are getting! I gasped when I saw that Victoria was 15!!! That cannot be possible! I like your blog idea! I'm glad that everything is going well! Keep in touch.

What a horribly unhappy looking family! You all need to cheer up a bit.

Great blog, guys. Victoria is truly a beautiful young woman. Spencer is HUGE! (double knuckles for my boy) Andrew looks like he knows nothing of mischief at all.

Looking forward to much more. Blessings.

Hi Marseilles & Johnny & kids,
I can't believe how grown the kids are. Your snow pictures are beautiful. We just finally saw snow in Colorado a couple of weeks ago. It was so much fun, except for the "falling" part when we went skiing. Wow, Victoria & Andrew look just like you Marseilles, and Spencer looks just like Johnny. Hope your mom and dad and sisters are doing good. Love, Bambi & family
