Welcome to our Family

  • Welcome to our Family

    Welcome to thedurons.tv. This is a site designed to give our friends and family all over the world an invitation to share our vision of Christ’s abundant life. This is a virtual scrapbook of sorts, but it is far more than that. You will find a wide variety of inspirational, motivational, and instructional tools here that at one time or another will address almost every area of our journey as families and individuals who desire excellence. We are an ordinary family with the same challenges as every other, but we have discovered the life-changing truth available to everyone, that God loves us and has an amazing, intricate plan for our lives.

    We have also discovered that this plan takes its true shape when we do all that we do for the Glory of Jesus Christ. We hope thedurons.tv will encourage you to fulfill your dreams in academics, athletics, music, acting, business, education, missions, church or para church ministry, or whatever area of life you choose. We are all called to be lights in the world and in a season of history when “reality” is defined as controversy, crisis, and chaos, we believe the most fascinating and adventurous lives are empowered by and lived within the supernatural plan of the creator.

    As we say in Louisiana, thank ya’ll for droppin’ by!

    Bienvenue,

    The Durons
