And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15 (KJV)

Who we are...

  • In December 1998, Kay retired form the Alief Independent School District where she was a middle school counselor. She stays active with her Wednesday morning Stitchery group, Curves for exercise and yoga, and in various activities at our church home.

  • In 2011, Kay started a new business, Cook Counseling. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and she worked in this business until March, 2016, when she retired again.

  • In October 1998, Lawson retired from the Texas Instruments' Stafford site, where he was an electrical engineering manager. He is active as webmaster for the TI Houston Alumni Association, FCC licensed as Amateur Radio operator N5ATT, and active in various duties at our church.

  • We are members of Second Baptist Church in Houston and attend the West campus in Katy. Kay teaches Bible Study for youth, and is a member of the choir. Lawson volunteers as a video engineer for the television ministry at the main Woodway campus.

  • We listen to Christian Radio in Houston at 105.7 FM. You can hear KHCB on the Web for Biblical teaching and beautiful music: KHCB-FM.

    What we like to do...
    Our Recreational Vehicle (RV) Storybook
  • We enjoy getting out and experiencing God's beautiful natural creation as much as possible using our 5th wheel trailer. Our equipment: A 2015 Ford F250 SRW 4x2 Crew Cab Lariat 6.2L EFI V-8, 6-speed transmission, 3.73 axle ratio and PullRite Superglide #4100 16K hitch (replacing our 1999 F250) & a 2002 Glendale Titanium 24E29 5th wheel. The trailer is a 2005 replacement for our 1999 Wilderness 821-5B 5th wheel.

    Using the window of opportunity we have been given at this time, more of these vacation trips are being made without the RV. This is due to the great distances of these destinations from Houston and the limited amount of time we currently can devote to a particular trip. We still prefer to travel in the RV.

    Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that Great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21 KJV)
