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 […]

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.
