We are the Ducommuns! There are 4 of us now-Craig, Laura, Zamara, and now Mahashavah, our 1 year old son. We adopted Zamara from Ethiopia in 2008. Our son is also from Ethiopia and we are hoping to bring him home soon. We live Flagstaff Arizona. We are so glad you found us. Take a look around and don't forget to leave us a message.

Jesus Conversation!

At bedtime, once teeth are brushed and jammies are put on, we snuggle in the lazy boy rocker and talk about the day, pray, just plain snuggle.

The other night I was snuggling with Zamara and we were talking about the people we loved. I told Zamara that I loved Jesus the very best and she asked me "Why?" I said, "I love Jesus because He loves me and took away all my sins."

She asked, "What are sins?". I said, "Sin is when we do something naughty."

Zamara said, "Oh, OK" then asked, "He takes ALL our sins away?"

I said, "Yes. He takes all our sins away if we ask Him."

To this she said, "Actually, He only takes some of them away, though."

So we went on for a few minutes with me trying to explain that yes, Jesus does take all of our sins away. It was a very cute conversation and so purely simple that it almost brought a tear to my eye. She has also been trying out some new vocabulary like, "actually" and "though". She tends to add them on to almost every sentence.

The whole conversation was very adorable and I wish I would have had a tape recording all of it. These are the conversations I want to remember for forever.
