Thank You Jesus for another month! I’ve … Continue reading Trial… and trial again.
Grace to you and peace be multiplied. - 1 Peter 1:2 Jacob blessed and prophesied over his sons before his death in Genesis 49. In the same way, I chose my children’s names very specifically and prayed blessings over them after birth, in faith that those blessings will one day come to pass.

Our precious "punkins" I feel as though my mind started clearing the day after we got the sad news about Zion's pulmonary hypertension.

The conversation was … Continue reading Calling a 7-day fast!
