The Real Santa Claus with Lighting By Veterans

I was strolling through the internet yesterday when I stumbled upon the real Santa Claus.  I didn't know that he actually lives in Texas and has a side business installing Christmas Lights for LBV.  As the questions to Santa rolled off of my tongue, he began to tell me about all of the kids that need to "Believe to Receive."  Our conversation then turned to the parents that give up on Santa because they can buy their kids presents.  Both He and I shook our heads and we know the truth and will never stop believing in the Spirit of Christmas.

Santa began working with Lighting By Veterans in 2011 making Texas twinkle with beauty. This effort was aligned with Him taking pride in the amazement and smiles of the Children who lived in their clients homes.  Christmas preparation begins the day after Christmas when you're handling as many clients as LBV does.  If you're looking for the BEST CHRISTMAS LIGHT INSTALLATION COMPANY in the marketplace than give us a call at 469-269-2838 (AVET) or check us out online at

This year with the help of the Real Santa Clause, LBV would like to introduce an authentic channel to the Spirit of Christmas himself, Santa Claus.  We would like to encourage children to have their parents email a story of a gift that their kids really would like to have or need this Christmas.  You can reach him by posting on Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Twitter or just simply emailing him at  You have to "Believe to Receive" and I would imagine there may be a few people reading these emails that would like to be Santa's helpers.  ;)

Ron Robey, Brittany Robey, Josie Robey, Keith Craft and Sheila Craft and Elevate Life Church

Today Ron Robey thanked Tony Delsol on Easter Sunday for originally inviting him and his family to Elevate Life Church five years ago.  The "Super Bowl" of religion (Jesus Christ's Resurrection) changed the world forever 2,014 years ago.  One simple invite card to the "Worlds Best Kept Secret" can change your life while opening your eyes to the awesome power of God flowing through the imperfect vessels at ELC.  It's amazing how something that takes such little effort as an invitation could be the turning point for a family that can possibly echo through their generations.  Tony is a servant leader at ELC and has always been a man of God in Ron's eyes.

Book Sign
Pastor Keith Craft from Elevate Life Church has constructed the Cathedral of Frisco which God had marked an X on this property long before the fastest growing city in the US sparked its boom.  Pastor Keith may not be a household name but has shared the stage with the likes of Margaret Thatcher, Mikhail Gorbachev, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Tony Romo, Zig Ziglar, Terry Bradshaw and Rudy Giuliani to name a few.  Elevate Life Church with Pastor Keith has joined the "Champions Network" and aligned himself with Joel Osteen from Lakewood Church.  You can't choose the family that your were born into but you can decide who to go through life with later.  Your "Family of Choice" and alignments are the most important thing you will or won't do in your life so choose wisely and put God first!

Ron traveled back to his home state of Virginia to surround himself with the family and friends that have always been there through thick and thin.  Leaving behind two daughters and his Church home, Ron thought he was making the right decision.  Obviously a man can go crazy without his school aged children and his place of worship.  Thank God that Elevate Life Church offers alternative ways to attend from another state by clicking and then clicking the Watch Now button.  As all relationships have the potential of disappointment, the real relationship that Ron was seeking was a relationship with the person who has never turned his back on him, God.  Pastor Sheila prayed for Mr. Robey and his family in Feburary and after 7 short weeks has was restored to his family and life in Texas just in time to celebrate the good news of Christ's Resurrection

Robey's at Elevate Life Church

RON ROBEY was born: 

On August 12th 1977 Ronald Edward Robey Jr. (Ron Robey) was born in Manassas, Va at Prince William Hospital.  His mother Sharon Robey and father Ron Robey Sr. raised him in Manassas until the middle of the 6th and 7th grade.  The family had settled down in Stafford County where Ron graduated High School in 1995 to then immediately enlist into the Air Forces most prestigious unit.  The shotgun marriage between Mr. Robey and Malisa Danyell Stinnett was soon after the news of a baby on the way.


Most young men who are turning 21 can be found drinking the night away at a local bar.  Ron was at the hospital with Malisa watching their first born child.  August 13th, 1998 Brittany Jewel Robey was born in Washington, DC at Mary Washington's Children Hospital.  What a coincidence to have a child born the day after your birthday naturally.  God had blessed this young family with a daughter and a great responsibility for two young people.  The marriage was put on pause as this couple experienced living separately in February 2001.  Ron found Jesus in October 2001 and started seeing Malisa again.


After a Christmas season of reconnecting a family that was once dissolving in different directions, a fire for the Lord was sparked in their hearts. Josephine Texanna Robey was born August 14th, 2002 in Alexandria, VA at Alexandria Hospital.  Josie was named after Texanna Johnson (Malisa's grandmother) which who raised Malisa while her mother was battling addictions.  This couldn't be a more beautiful family that is currently looking for another miracle.  God has revealed himself through this family and will continue these efforts.

Christmas time with the Robey's
