A backpack and a helmet saved our son’s life. Well… we’re pretty confident that God had a hand in it too. Last week our son Mitch was hit and then run over by an SUV on his way home from school. The support and prayers from our friends, family and community has been overwhelming. And […]
And so does my soul.I snapped this Instagram photo last Friday afternoon. Today I am not complaining about the after-school trail of destruction that Grant leaves as he comes in the door. Today I am just thanking The Lord for the simple blessing of having my child walk in the door at all. Last year […]
Stupid breast cancer attacked my friend Donna when she was 36. She had no family history of it whatsoever. Stupid cancer! After Donna had a mastectomy and a few rounds of chemo, we thought she beat it. Young and otherwise healthy, not to mention the sweetest woman you could ever meet… Of course she’d beat […]

Devin and Conner’s dad, Mike, lost his battle with colon cancer this morning. The boys were by his side, which is what all three of them wanted. Thanks for all of the love, prayers and words of encouragement.
Did you guys know that before my blissful marriage to Handsome Hubby, I had been previously married? I mean, why would you, right? (Unless you’ve read our story, you wouldn’t know.) The divorce was one of the most pivotal moments of my life. Not just because my marital status changed, or that I was left alone […]
I had another post planned for this morning, but I have September 11 on the brain. I can’t even think of a title for this post… so please bear with me as I get this out of my head and off my chest. Waking up and turning on the news this morning to hear that there […]
