HLA continues to grow we also continue to be blessed with new staff.
We’d like to introduce the newest staff members of HLA to you in this
newsletter and tell you a little bit about them and what they do to
serve your family.

Meet the Staff

David and Nathan

Nathan with Daddy

Children are a Joy! That’s why we continue to do this. I enjoy just thinking about you enjoying your children.

Our staff works hard everyday. HLA has really grown! But everyday we are delighted to think about what a blessing it is for you to have your children at home.

been especially blessed this year by God’s faithfulness. As HLA grew so
much this last year there were several times I wondered how we would
get it all done. Then God brought us just the right person for the job. If we watch for Him, He renews our faith day by day.

Children are a delight! What
a blessing to have young lives in our care. What a privilege to train
them up in the way they should go. All the money in the world could not
buy happiness. True JOY comes from the heart of God and flows through
us to our sons and daughters.

May your year be full of His power and grace. And may you feel His presence each and every step of the way.
