Hit the Ground Running


Wow, making the decision to turn the light off on cancer has felt like getting off of a merry-go-round. The only thing is we have had to hit the ground running. Both of my girls are going on a Mission Trip to Belize at the end of May 2014. So we are beginning with fundraising.

Yard Sale in April – if you have items you would like to donate to our sale, please let me know, I’ll be happy to come and get them.

Fundraising website – we are in the process of setting on up which will make it easy for long distance family and friends to support the girls.

We are also selling Burlap crosses. Pics to come $25 Let us know if you would like one.

Babysitting – both girls are available to babysit, please contact mom, I’m keeping it all together on the family calendar.

Homeschool Friends, RileyGrace is available during the day for Babysitting. She can only do 2 days a week and still get her school work done. First come first serve.

Bake Sale – this is going to happen during the yard sale. We hope you will be able to come by and support us.

OK, that is all for now. Whew!
May all that we do bring glory to the name of the Lord.

Love to you all!


Return Home Notes


I have started this post a dozen times and it’s been in my drafts folder for almost 2 months now.  To sum up what I feel about Africa, well I have decided that it would be almost impossible. There are things that God spoke to my heart in Africa that He didn’t use words to speak.  So to put them into words for someone else, I can’t, I don’t the words to describe.  The emotions I have felt since being home really surprised me in some ways.  Then in other ways  I have so much more to learn about God.  I will be processing this for some time.  I am not as emotional as I was when I first came home.  However, I am still “caught” at times by the thoughts that invade moments that from the outside have no connection with Africa.

I will say this  – for you my family and friends – I pray that you get to know God more.  That may or may not be a mission trip to a foreign country, it may be something profound that he wants you to do here – right where you are. Wherever it is, whatever it is, listen closely – I’ve never heard God scream.
