Hello everybody! I have been super busy with school and other things recently, so I have less time to blog. So I am going to take a break from blogging just for a week or two. I realize for me, blogging takes of a lot of time that I don’t really have. So I need a break from it. So this means that I won’t be posting, answering comments, or reading posts. So if you comment on something than I won’t answer till after the break. This break will be until the Monday after the following one, so April 8th. Anyway c-ya all later. 😀 -Ezra
Hallo! 😀 So, I have an amazing friend who’s name is Mercy. She doesn’t have a blog or else I would link it. 👌She asked me if I could spread the GoFundMe for kids in Uganda who need help, I said yes, of course. 💕 Anyway, she made an awesome explanation of what’s it about and everything, so please read it. 😁 This would mean a lot to me, her, and for help with those children. If you can’t give please ask people you know! Thanks!
According to the World Health Organisation, 1.46 million Ugandans had HIV or AIDS as of 2015. In many countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, children with HIV face stigma and shame from their communities. HIV is worldwide, but due to recent medications, it’s no longer a death sentence, and people all around the world have found hope and a future in the face of their diagnosis. But there…

Hey everybody!! I am going to start this new thing that I’ve seen lots of other cool blogs do called Weekly Bible Verse or WBV and I want to try it. So I am going to start posting bible verses on here weekly, it will probably be every Wednesday but if that doesn’t work I’ll just do it whenever I have time every week! Okay I am so excited to start, so lets get to it!
“Because you belong to Christ, you have everything you need. He is the ruler over every power and authority.” Colossians 2:10
So that was it. I actually just wrote that down in my journal this morning after I read my bible because I think it was really cool! I think this means that we don’t have to worry about anything because God is so powerful and he can take care of us no matter how hard it may seem to us. So when you are like really stressed out just remember God has you covered! 😀 I actually wrote a song about that a few years ago but I lost the lyrics. I’m going to write a new one…. Okay I was going on the rabbit trail. But anyway tell me what this verse means to you, I would love to hear from you!
Well I wanted to do a genealogy post and I decided to ask this. How can genealogy help you? Well besides bragging rights for being a descendant of Martin Luther (In your face, I’m his 15 greats grandson! XD). Genealogy also helps you with money actually. If you think you are part Chickasaw Indian or something but you can’t prove it then you don’t get benefits… You wanna know how to prove it??? GENEALOGY!!!!!!! If you take a DNA test with like 23 and Me or Ancestry, they are really expensive but they pay off! Because I don’t know about you guys but I almost know I’m like part Cherokee, because my great grandma said I was but her grandpa never proved it when he could of so now we don’t get benefits! But if I take a DNA test I can prove that I am part Cherokee and I can actually get benefits! Oh and by the way the benefits are pretty awesome you get like a clothing grant of like $50 every month to spend on clothes, or like you can get like a lot of money, or lots of other stuff, it just depends like what kind of Indian you are and lots of other stuff that I don’t know about….
Anyway if that wasn’t cool enough if you take a DNA test than you can put everything you have figured out on your Family Search, or Ancestry tree or whatever genealogy source you use. Also if you don’t use a genealogy source, then talk to me and I can get you hooked up to the right one! So yeah you can get a ton of genealogy stuff figured out by taking a test. And don’t worry you have to let blood ooz out of your body. Most DNA tests like 23 and Me and Ancestry you just spit into this cup thing and it works. Oh yeah and if you take the Ancestry one it automatically fills in your family tree with the results you got in the test. For me that wouldn’t help anyway because I don’t even use Ancestry (it’s so expensive, and Family Search is free so it’s way better). So I wish I had the money to get a DNA test and an Ancestry account but they are just to expensive right now. But I honestly don’t blame them for being expensive because they are sooo helpful, you have no idea. Okay for the actual prices: 23 and me test is $99.00 and Ancestry is also $99.00, I also just found out that the My Heritage test is only $59.00 I don’t know how reliable it is but I can look into that! 😀
Anyway I thought this was kinda cool to help you guys understand some good reasons why you should ❤ genealogy! 😀 Okay anyway bye everyone c-ya next time! -Ezra

Hello everybody! So today I will show you a song my brother Jesse and I recorded. We are both musicians he plays drums and raps and he used to play some trumpet. I do a lot of bass and guitar and a little bit of drums and baritone and I sing. Anyway we want to show you our song that we wrote called “At the Mall.” I am on electric guitar and backup vocals and Jesse is drums and lead vocals! Anyhow I hope you like it (it doesn’t sound as good on the recording system, but I want you guys to hear it anyway). So here it is! And tell me how you liked it and what you think we could fix to make it better! Thanks! 😀
Oh also if you wan’t the lyrics here they are:
At the mall at the mall at the mall we met a guy at the mall at the mall at the mall he said he didn’t know Christ. Listen up sir we know a guy he lives in us and his name Christ he never sins he never dies but he died on the cross once to save our skins and after 3 days he rose again and he stays with us deep within and he’ll stay with us from beginning to end (of our lives) yeah, that’s not all there’s way more but we’ve gotta head to the Lego store so open this bible check it out there’s lots more to learn about! (Repeats like 2x) Don’t get me wrong don’t get me wrong don’t get me wrong I’m pretty good at singing the good news in a song (repeats like 5x and then goes back to the first part once)
That’s it! Hope you like it! 😀

I’m editing this because Meredith just gave me a good one too:
So what do you think of them? let me know what you think of them.
This blog is under construction because of the new changes. So if it looks strange that is because I am working on it. It will hopefully be finished by the end of the month. But I will be able to make some posts in between now and then including my new song and a collab with Christina from Creative Critique! Okay I’m finally done! -Ezra
Hello everyone I have made a decision. This blog is going to be going through tons of changes! I am going to change Ezra’s Ancestors into………………. I don’t know yet, please give me some ideas! But it is going to be about lots of cool and random stuff including genealogy! And actually we are not really getting rid of Ezra’s Ancestors we are technically improving it! It is now about everything.
Note to Kaelyn (if your name is not Kaelyn you don’t need to read this):Kaelyn you have been amazing help to this blog! And if you would like to, you can make posts about whatever you want pretty much including genealogy. You are so valuable to my blog and I am sorry if this was a little bit too sudden but I wanted to let everyone know sooner rather than later. So when you make your once a month post you can just tell me what you want to post about and do it! Thank you soooo much for taking your time to help this blog grow so much! 😀
And I don’t want this blog to be about just me. You guys are the most important part of this blog so I am going to do lots of collabs and stuff to try to include you guys a lot! I was even thinking of having a signup page so you guys can do posts on here. But I’ll get to that in the near future. I don’t want us to be overwhelmed with all the changes! 😀
But as for this week and next week what will be happening is:
A new name, I need your help coming up with it!
A new design
A new URL/web adress
A contact page
Okay so that’s about all I need to say. C-ya later! -Ezra
P.S. Oh yeah and my song will probably be the first post on the new blog. Probably on Saturday!
“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” - Isaiah 55:6-7
