Visiting Ashland

Stayed in a 'suite' at the Super 8...not very well kept, but TONS of room for Isaac to run around and for us to spread out with all the baby stuff!

Big Changes = Time To Blog Again

Big changes in the Simpson Family!
We have a new addition to our lives and her name is Liberty Reign!
She is beautiful, and sleeps VERY well! (Thank you Lord!) I think she is going to have an interesting mix of mommy and daddy just like Isaac does. She definitely has Carl's hair color..and my eyes.
She is a sweet baby and she sleeps like a baby too!

on a slightly different subject....

I want to share the significance of her name with everyone. It is a declaration and a proclamation of literal, figurative and spiritual freedom reigning in every place, in every life and in every dimension!
For those who wonder what the point of having a name like this is, there are a few things that we believe that support our reasoning. One of them is that there is much scientific evidence and Biblical evidence that says that every particle in the universe was created through sound waves. This is how Genesis describes the Creation, God spoke the earth into existence. Every sound wave has the potential to heal or harm, to proliferate or to decimate. The Bible says to speak to the mountain and it shall be removed. You can take that verse a number of ways, but if we are to be temples of the living God and be His ambassadors to the earth, then I will take it every way I can, including to mean my voice has power. Power to raise the dead, power to curse a fig tree and it shall die.
I have seen things that seemed unchangeable change because of words spoken.

So Liberty Reign's name carries with it a huge significance. Each time a person hears her name, or says it, they can and will be affected. Each time the earth and everything in it hears her name, it will be changed.
I like the nickname Libby, it is cute, and it is acceptable. But that is all it is. Please, use it as you will, but I do ask that people say her whole name often as well. It is a great name. It is a proclamation. Those who are captives shall be set free. Free from the law of sin and death. Free of disease. After all, that is what the word salvation means. Complete health and peace in every way.
So as you read this, I hope and pray that you are set free in some way and that Liberty truly Reigns in your life.

Latest news!

I would like to thank anyone and everyone who has already asked me to book their travel! I have yet to advertise, except for this blog, and word of mouth, and have plenty of business! I am very thankful to all of you and please everyone, if you didn't know already, I can book ANY travel.

A note concerning airfare,...I can book it in a package as it is cost effective for me to do so, often saving you money and I myself am able to derive some commission from the airline off the sale. Much of the time though you will find the same rates yourself online. In order for me to take the time necessary to sell flights only, I will often be forced to charge a fee. I am happy to book flights for people, but if you are going to stay in a hotel or resort, please let me also serve you in this area too, as it usually will save you money and gives me the opportunity to be of greater service to you while remaining a successful business.

Also, I can book little hotel trips too, so don't forget about that!

Enough about the business though! Isaac is now 17 months old, and doing awesome! He is as adorable as ever, and one of the words he says the most is "Jesus!" only is sounds like "eeyuh!"
He worships the Lord at church and even laid hands on me once and said "eeyuh!" Seriously!

Carl has been hired as a teacher at the middle school as the teacher for behavioral intervention. Praise the Lord! He hopefully will be used by God to be a positive influence on some kids who really need good role models!

My parents are getting ready to build a log home and become dealers for log home kits themselves! Very exciting and hopefully it all works out as planned! :)

We had a tent meeting down here in southern Oregon a couple of weeks ago, with some awesome speakers! A man named John Crowder, who has a great book out that I highly recommend called "The New Mystics". He has a website by the same name. A wonderful speaker and excellent book! Just a man filled with the Holy Spirit who has a heart for the Lord and loves to pour himself out! We were truly blessed!

Also, Carl and I made the mistake of watching the Pirates of the Caribbean movie last night and I do not recommend it at all! It was long, confusing with the difficult accents, and had a lot of really gross looking characters in it that made my stomach turn over the whole time!

Well this is the latest scoop! God bless everyone, and hope you are all doing well!

Announcing the Opening of Fly Family Travel

Hello, everyone who comes to the Simpson Family Blog! I just wanted to give out some information that may be of interest to you all!

Announcing the opening of my business
Fly Family Travel! I (Heather) have applied for my business license with the city, and am sending my state registration application in today! I have also signed a business agreement with a travel agency in Portland called ABC's of Travel. They have a website I am an independent contractor and will have their oversight and assistance every step of the way. I will have a website as soon as possible to serve my clients locally. If anyone would like assistance with travel needs, please email me by attempting to post comments (they are filtered because I was getting spammed comments). Put your email, name and phone number in the comments!

Once I have your information, I will contact you and arrange to meet if possible. I will meet people I know personally in their homes, and others in public places at their convenience. I am very good at returning email and of course telephone calls!

Fly Family Travel is a full service travel agency. The primary focus is "
Family Vacations". Cruises, All-Inclusive Resorts, Italy and Hawaii are the main products I will be offering. Of course I LOVE the entire world and am enthusiastic about sending people anywhere! I myself would love to visit just about every place people like to go!

I will be up and running completely either this week or next week and can start planning travel immediately. Once all of my license and registrations are complete, I will be legit and ready to roll!
I am SO excited about this!! I have worked in customer service for such a long time, and LOVE the travel industry!

My background if anyone is wondering, is training as an Airline Travel Specialist from International Air Academy. There I received travel agency training as well. I worked for Delta Airlines for just shy of 3 years. I have been in some type of retail or service industry for about 14 years. I also feel God has been directing my path throughout the years in this direction. My experiences and desires have culminated to this career. I am also operating out of my home to be able to stay home with the kid(s).

Fly Family Travel is going to be centered around the clients needs and desires! I want to give people a very harmonious travel experience. I will strive to give people the very best experience their budget can handle! I am not a high pressure sales person. For myself, I despise doing business that way! I will only upsell people to the things they really want, will enjoy and can afford. I would like to arrange plenty of luxury travel as well, and believe in this area there is a market for that, but offering true value is of utmost importance! Giving people the best experiences for their money is my goal! Throughout the years I have increasingly grown weary of the standard business/client relationship. It is no fun for anyone to speak to a client for 10-15 minutes (or more depending on the industry) and then never speak to them again! I desire ongoing relationship with my clients!

I would love to do business with
YOU! If there is any way I can be of service, now and in the future please contact me! I will be marketing Fly Family locally very soon. Some of the details are still being worked out! Get ready to plan the vacation of your dreams!

Sincerely and Excitedly,
Heather Simpson

Here for all to see, proof for anyone who doubted it was really true... Carl has his license and his degree!!! They even have their own nice little frames! Thank you all so much who have prayed and supported us in so many ways (you know who you are!!) and for believing in us and thank you God! We are so thankful this is finally over. Sorry, there won't be any graduation ceremony, but if anyone would like to celebrate let us know! :)  Posted by Picasa
