For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand- when I awake, I am still with you. Psalm 139:13-18 We are so blessed to say Woods McClain Smith was born July 25!!!! There are no words to explain our joy and gratefulness that the Lord is entrusting this bundle of sweetness to our family💙 psalm 139 came to mind immediately and also the thought that if you are feeling unknown, know that there is a God who created you for Himself🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 how awesome is that🙏🏻 and @nate.smith02 are so in love with their little man💙 thank you for all of your sweet thoughts and prayers for our family and getting ready for @twoandyonder grand baby number 2 in September 🙌🏻💙🙌🏻💙😘😘😘😘

The young couple married in October 2018. In May of that same year, Melissa Reeves thanked her soon-to-be-son-in-law for his service… Emily’s husband Nate had been in Iraq serving with the United States Army. Melissa and Scott Reeves have been married since March 23, 1990 and also share a son Lawrence David Reeves. In 2018, they opened their family business Revival Roast Co. on their Nashville farm in their home state of Tennessee. They’ve described themselves as ‘third wave coffee roasters’, which Scott explained in an April 2019 interview on Pickler & Ben, “First wave, which is coffee we grew up on… the second wave was like the Starbucks… and then along came third wave… there’s a way to brew it, a pour over method… the purest way to do it.” Feel free to watch the full interview below and again, all the best goes out to the Reeves and the Smiths during this special time!
