Nine Reasons Why My Family Should Be Selected:

  1. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">With a family of five boys, holidays can sometimes bring mixed feelings; i.e., the joy of expression, but the sadness of limited finances.

  2. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">We are a grateful family that understands both the blessing of giving and the humility of receiving.

  3. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">Can you imagine the “wear and tear” in a home that a house full of boys can bring? The numerous repairs and constant cleaning requires more attention than the resources available.

  4. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">Every young boy loves the adventure that a good bicycle provides. With so many boys to satisfy, sometimes their dreams end up flat or broken.

  5. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">I promised a cruise to my wife for our 5th anniversary. Instead, our first child arrived. So, I made a promise for our 10th, and then 15th anniversary, but more sons were still arriving. By our 20th anniversary, we were too broke to consider one! Maybe Holiday Travel Agency can book one before our 25th.

  6. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">My wife tends to care more for her husband and children than her own desires. Would you begrudge a husband who appreciated her enough to adorn her in fine jewelry in appreciation for the years of love and sacrifice?

  7. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">We are a host home for the youth in our community. Twice a month, about 25 high school students meet for fellowship. We provide a safe and fun atmosphere with an emphasis on good morals and strong character development.

  8. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">As a family, for three days and two nights, we had the privilege of assisting and caring for almost 800 Rita evacuees in a shelter at Lufkin First Assembly of God.

  9. class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .5in">We are thankful for the opportunity that KTRE and their sponsors are providing. However the outcome of this contest, we have learned to be content in all things.
