About Me

My name if Phyllis Rice.  I am a Christian, the widow of a amazing man who happened to be a pastor,  proud mother of 3 great kids, and Nana to 3 precious little girls.  I have a heartfelt desire to serve our Lord and to serve others in whatever ways God leads me.

I have changed the topic for this site.  I want it to be a place to share memories.  As time passes we find they become more vague and writing them down and sharing them means they stay fresh in our minds. I also want it to be a place to record for my grandkids the memories of a Papa they didn’t know or won’t remember.

    We’re sorry to have to miss music camp too. We loved it.
    Sorry to hear about the car wreck. That’s a bad injury for a piano player.

    Hey Charley — Hey Phyllis!!!! You guys look great, as always!! 🙂 It’s so nice to see a recent picture of the two of you. (Curtis is asleep, so I’ll have to show it to him later.) We miss you guys. Hope you’re enjoying WV. It’s a nice place to raise kids and it’s gorgeous in the Fall.

    We’re still doing the same old, same old. Looks like we may end up with 8 kids before long if these adoptions go through!! The life of a foster parent is never boring, that’s for sure! The babies are so much fun. I really love it!

    Stay in touch!! We love you both!! Kim (& Curtis)

    Hi Phyllis,
    I’m not sure if you remember me. I graduated from OCS in 1987 and taught there from 92-96. I am trying to get in touch with Charity. I need her help in contacting graduates of 1985 for Dr. W’s upcoming retirement banquet. Would you please email me at the address I provided? Thanks a bunch 🙂

    Hey Phyllis! I want to make sure you know how much I enjoy your journal entries and pictures. I can tell from your writings what a warm, sweet person you are. Because I know Charley I realize how blessed you are to have him but from getting to know you I realize how blessed he is to have you. You have such a beautiful family and and I remember you all in my prayers daily as you serve him in ministry. Because I was saved under Russell Rice’s ministry, the Rice’s will always hold a special place in my heart. The Lord bless you, Phyllis.

    I was trying to look up what I can find about the Robert Sheffey Memorial Camp Meeting and through my googling I found your blog telling that you had attended in 2007 (I think).

    The Camp Meeting is July 10-17 this year and my husband and I would like to attend. Roger Roller is the guest speaker and we have heard him several times in our area when he held revivals.

    Now that my husband and I are retired we would like to travel there with our camper but cannot find out anything about the camping area.

    Can you be of any help?

    Thanks for any information that you may supply.

    Jean Cannon

    Hey Phyllis, love this website. You are truly a beautiful person inside and out and what a beautiful family you and Charlie have. I really enjoy reading your post. Nice to know there are still true Christians that live for the Lord. I’m sure all of us have done things in the past , or had things happen that we are not proud of, especially me. But, God was always there. Waiting to pick me up and put me back on the right path again. He never left me, I left him. I went so far down that I had to look up and am really thankful for what I learned and even prouder of where I am and the road I am headed down. It was so great seeing you guys at the Tab Reunion. Love you guys.

      Hi Phyllis I love your blog! It really made my day brighter, like you sometimes I get down on things in life and worry about similar things like expenses, cars, making the mortgage etc.. But you know I know I can not go through life worrying We are not promised a tomorrow and God has been good to me through the good and the bad, I have had alot of bad this year especially, i appreciate everything you say and you are such a blessing to me! You are truly God’s humble Servant, I wished I had your strength I suffer from Depression and sometimes I let myself feel that God is so far away. Sometimes each day is a battle. Please keep me in your prayers and again you are trully a blessing!! God bless. Linda
