Free Give-Away in memory of Malorie!!!


I have never done a give-away, but here goes!! If you leave a comment after this post, I'll mail you one of the "BUCKLE UP FOR MAL" keychains. Shortly after Mals accident, her older sister Ashleigh started giving talks to schools about the importance of seatbelt safety along with the keychains.

If you would like to visit Malorie's website in her memory, click on:

I can't believe it's been 19 years ago you blessed our lives! GOD IS GOOD!!!

"For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations." Psalm 100:5

This is the verse I am repeating in my head today as I miss my Angel Malorie. I still sometimes ask why? I don't know why Malorie was killed in a car accident 5 years ago just before her 14th birthday. I do know that is was the best day of her life, because she went home to our Heavenly Father! But oh, what a tragedy, and the worst day of my life!

BUT.... I cling to the factual knowledge that God is good, regadless. Tragedies in this life are beyond our understanding this side of Heaven.

I believe Jesus is good deep in my soul and that's what is so precious to me!

Faith is not something we can see. We have to step out of our comfort zone and trust God, no matter what! "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see". Hebrews 11:1


Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for letting us be Mal's Parents for almost 14 years! Father, thank you for being good and your love endures forever! Grant me the faith to know that you are good all of the time, even during the most difficult times in this life. When I am weak, lift me up. Let me rely on your everlasting love for me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
And..Dear Father, give Mal a big hug and kiss for me and tell her we love her!!!!!!

I'll end this blog with a quote I truly believe in from David Jeremiah of My Hearts Desire,

"The pursuit of God has no shortcuts.. You simply must keep walking, keep seeking, and keep yearning. Keep at it, and you won't be disappointed!

Love you All,

Happy Sweet 16 Sawyer. My baby is 16 today!!! It's hard to believe, we have gone thru so much with Sawyer. He was very sick when he was born and almost did not make it, has dyslexia which makes learning so difficult for him, and he has ADHD, which makes it difficult for ALL of us to keep up with him!

When we first learned of Sawyer's learning disability, our questions went from why our son God, what did we do wrong, and now we often ask, where do we go from here God?

My life verse, Jer. 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that Ithink toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."

With Sawyer being a Sophmore, I often wonder where God will take him after high school. I know our Heavenly Father has a plan for Sawyer, and if you know Sawyer, it has got to be big, he never does anything halfway. So, another lesson we are learning is patience. In time, God will show us His plan for Sawyer.

Sawyer, as you turn 16 today, at exactly 12:37, my prayer for you is,

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that Sawyer will give everything he attempts his best, that he will place your name on whatever he does, and that he will give you all the glory. Dear Father, I pray that Sawyer will see things as you do and be attracted to what pleases and glorifies you, and that he will stay away from things that displease you. Thank you Father for the gift of Sawyer and for everyday you give us with him.

In Your Heavenly Name I Pray,
