We’re the Chapman family, or as our family blog says, “The Happy Chappys”. Our family is an eclectic mix of wonderful personalities,
God given talents and a love for one another. Our family includes
Phil (Dad), Beth (Mom), Chloe, Noah, Billy, Ty, and Abby; seven Happy Chappy’s in all. If I had to say in a sentence what our family is all about, I would say, “We are a happy family that follows Christ through this pathway of life.” Proverbs 3: 5&6 is our theme verse.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding; in all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He (God) will direct thy paths.” Phil signs all his artwork with this verse as a reminder to give all the glory to God for his talent, success, and family.
Our family picture is a rainbow of color. Three of our children are gifts from heaven, adopted just 1 1/2 years ago. We have been so blessed~we cannot imagine our life without them. Having a “regular” job has it’s security, but I would never trade my home business, home schooling, family-traveling lifestyle for that security. As we travel along life’s pathway, we truly aspire to give God the glory for what He has done, is doing, and will continue to do in our family as we work and minister for Him. “Hands to Work, Hearts to God” is a Shaker saying that truly describes our family; each member has an important part in making our home, business and faith work out for our good and God’s glory.
