Lost

If you’ve ever lost something ridiculously valuable, my heart touched yours tonight. You might know that sinking, pit in the stomach feeling that consumes you as you begin to pray…. “Lord. Help me. YOU know…” I have had that feeling a few times in my life, the worst being when any of my little men … More Lost

Finn

October 21st was a bit of a whirlwind. Birthing our fourth boy, discovering he had a vascular malformation known as Port Wine Stains, and then further learning that he would need an MRI on his brain day one and could potentially have developmental delays and seizures was not the sweet entrance into the world we … More Finn

Last year we waded through the book of Romans, and … More Mercy

Manna

I must rewind. It was one week after Finn was born and we were embracing his colorful little self and all the possibilities of his new normal. We had been praying fervently for good reports as we prepared for numerous appointments with neurologists, ophthalmologists and dermatologists in the coming weeks. We were raw and a … More Manna
