A family affair: Barbecuing, a shared passion for Stephens family

Body

Who’s the best barbecuer in Fort Stockton you may ask?

Fort Stockton native Jimmy Stephens might just be your guy. And his sons Aaron Stephens and Brian Stephens, who now live in Midland, might just be right up there with their father.

The three don’t claim to be, but the product speaks for itself.

In 2008, the Stephens’ entered a different realm of barbecuing when Jimmy and his oldest son Aaron decided to start competing in barbecue cookoffs around the state.

If you have been keeping up with our discussion in the last two articles that we began on Advent, this will be the third of five articles on Advent this December. In this article, we will spend some time discussing the Third Advent Candle. The candle that we light on the third Sunday of Advent is called “The Shepherd’s Candle” or “The Candle of Joy.” At FBC Fort Stockton we simply refer to it as the “Shepherd’s Candle of Joy.”

The two important considerations are that your child is secure in the harness and the car seat is securely attached to the vehicle. One thing that parents often do not take into consideration is that heavy jackets can interfere with keeping children safe in car seats.
