Gayton Baptist Church, Richmond Virginia

  • The Jazz Nativity 2010

first found out that he got the job at Gayton we were both THRILLED.  Absolutely thrilled. We were excited to fall in love with the kids and to get to know their awesome families…we were ready to be a part of a church family again (since we never really found one in college) and I was so excited about the MUSIC! Oh my gosh. The Lord has completely and TOTALLY blessed Gayton with incredible musicians! It’s really unbelievable how much talent is in this body of believers. Crazy! I was blown away our first Sunday when we visited (services at 8:30, 9:45 and 11… hint hint all of your Richmonders that need a Church home! We’re waiting for you!:).  The worship and the music was amazing and I loved it. The musicians here

The Jazz Nativity | Gayton Baptist Church

  • A Night of Jazz! Last Call!

As I walked into the church, snow flurries were falling from the sky…. what a perfect way to start the night! JAZZ NATIVITY happened tonight and do not fear! If you missed it, you can come TOMORROW! Tickets are still on sale and let me tellll you! …. it will be the best $5 you spend all season! I’m talking better than any stocking stuffer, any movie ticket, and any hot Starbucks drink! It’s that awesome. (Ps. If you find a movie ticket for $5, let me know!)  However, if you come and are craving a cup of Starbucks, they are sponsoring the event and are selling coffee and sweet treats throughout the whole event! Jazz Nativity is a Jazz concert in a coffee house type setting at Gayton Baptist Church (our church!!).

  • Michael the Baker

I’m not sure if that is the correct way to spell that made-up word or not… but that is what he is. Michael, my husband, is not one to sit around passively and do nothing around the house. Now I will say that he can take naps…..long naps, anytime of day and I don’t think he will ever out grow that.  However, besides his naptime, he is normally getting something done around the house… especially in the kitchen. A lot of women have asked me.. “have you cooked a lot?!”… and my answer has to be “well, no, not really…. Michael likes to cook”.  And this is true. I HELP him cook but I have really only made ONE dinner totally by myself and I had to tell him to leave me
