Growing up as a PK (Preacher's Kid) I had to always share my mother with everyone else at the church.  Don't get me wrong Mom was always there, and took amazing care of all four of us kids and Dad too.  But, she made herself available to minister to those in need and those who were just needy.  Looking back I so wouldn't change the process of my growing up.  It has made me the man I am today.  For that I have my mom Rebecka Hull to thank, and also my dad who is the greatest, but it is mother's day.
Now as a dad, a pastor, a business owner, a computer hacker and everything else that makes up my 24 hours -- I don't get to see my mom very often.  Sundays (Mother's Days) come and go and I don't get to see mom on her special day.  She is still a pastor's wife at her church, and I am still sharing.
This process though has made me the father and pastor I am today.  I have been given the opportunity to share my life and parent numerous spiritual children because I watched my mom & dad share their lives with countless people over their 40 years of ministry.
This process has also allowed me to have several other great women in my life that shared their lives and families with me throughout my growing.
Kay Miller - The Greatest Aunt Ever!
Sharon Graves - Justin & Stephanie thanks for sharing your mom while I was in college
Kathy Miller - A spiritual mom like no other...So miss hanging out with you PK
Peggy Willis - not a Mother-in-Law but a Mother-in-LOVE -- You're the Best
and of course my wife -- Shelisa Hull -- I love you so much and I am so glad to be a part of your life.

God will return to you multiple times over what you give to Him.  In ministry you give up (share) certain things -- holidays, easy Sunday mornings and sometimes family.  But He is so faithful to always make sure He gives you back more than what you gave Him.  My wife and I both are so blessed with an awesome church family that loves us. Along with numerous people in our lives that are stand-ins for the family that we grew up sharing, and even today share with the world.

Happy Mother's Day
