2011 is coming to a quick close.  I am so grateful for all the wonderful things God has done for our family this past year.  Our family was blessed with the addition of our little Kinlee Joy, who truly is a joy to us all with her sunny disposition.  Chris had an opportunity to join the faculty at our college alma mater, Point Loma Nazarene University, as an adjuct professor.  It was hard work but he enjoyed teaching his first semester and is going back for a second this coming semester.  2011 also saw healing at our church body and some much growth has occurred.  We went from having one full time person on staff (the pastor) to having the pastor and five part time staff members, one of which is Chris as the youth pastor.  We have been so blessed by the youth group and this process and can't wait to see what God has in store for this coming year. 
2011 saw our Ethan grow from a toddler to a little boy.  He started a new preschool and loves it.  Unfortunately we have also seen a lot of hospital trips for Ethan this year, but the doctors are still feel treating him on an as need basis is the best way for his body and we gratefully agree.  We are so fortunate to have a wonderful medical team to work with for Ethan. 

I have no idea what 2012 will hold, but I do know that God is awesome and will have some amazing things for each and everyone of you out there.  I am excited as I was asked to join a small bible study, bible discipleship for this coming year.  I have been praying that something like this would come along and I am so excited to see God reveals to me this coming year. 

I pray for you all in the coming year; 2012 is going to be a blessed year!

What a year! God is good. So excited for your Bible study opportunity. We have been blessed to pray for your family and I have enjoyed reconnecting with you in 2011. Can't wait to see what He has in store for the DuFour family in 2012. A vacation to Virginia perhaps?! ;) Keep us posted on all He is doing! You have a story worth telling, girl.
