This is the online home of Scott and Annie McClellan. We use this blog to keep you posted on our comings and goings, activities, and high jinks. We started blogging during our adoption journey to bring Elise into our family, and we completed the adoption process December 18, 2008. But that’s not the end of the story.

As a family of 5,  Elise (born, June 11, 2008), Maggie (born May 11, 2011), and Jack (born June 16, 2015) we get numerous opportunities to guide our children through learning how to relate to each other and us. And as you can expect, adding a third child further amplified the noise level, so it’s never a dull moment and rarely a quiet one. 🙂

SCOTT: I’m a writer, editor, conference director, occasional speaker, family man, and fellow of infinite jest. I’m the Communications Pastor at Irving Bible Church. Whatever free time I have belongs to my family, writing, reading, various side projects, whatever I can help you with, making poor dietary decisions, etc.

In March 2013, my first book hit the physical and digital shelves. It’s called Tell Me a Story: Finding God (and Ourselves) Through Narrative. I’ll try to keep this page updated (along with the rest of the site) with the latest news about the book, but you can also subscribe to my mailing list to make sure you don’t miss anything.


ANNIE: After teaching Deaf Ed for ten years, I am now work as a stay-at-home wife and mom and part-time substitute teacher. I actually taught 8 years, stayed home for 2, taught for 2, and now am home again. We will see how long staying home sticks this time.

In the past I blogged at tapestryministry.org/blog. Now I mainly blog here, mcclellantown.com, sometimes my thoughts but mostly about style because I like it and it’s fun. Thanks to my girls, I became a prolific consumer of fairies, princesses, ballerinas and all things pink, but with the girls growing up and the addition of our son I am not as overrun with pink now.

  1. Hi Annie,
    I came across your blog while browsing different sites (I think I started with Show Hope…) on adoption. My husband and I have been talkng about adoption off and on for a year or so now. We live in middle TN and really don’t know where to start. We don’t know if we should look internationally or domestically, or if we should consider an infant or older child. We have 2 biological daughters ages 8 and 5. We are both 42 and would love to have a little boy to love on and add to our family. We have considered trying to concieve again, but at our age the risks are high and with so many children in need of a loving home we feel we need to consider it. I see a link to CAS on your blog site – is this an agency you have used or recommend? Or do you know of a Middle TN agency that is reputable?
    Any info would be appreciated – God bless you in your journey.
