Welcome to our journey. The purpose of my blog is not only to journal our life experience, but also to share what God is doing in our lives. I do not claim to be an expert in parenting, marriage, or even the Bible. But I do have a heart to share my experiences and the true love that God has for each and every one of us. You can read our testimony by clicking on the top of the page. And if you'd like to know about the Homeless Ministry my husband started, you can click on the Homeless tab. I hope you will comment freely on my posts and in my community.

Survival Mode Parent

Another blogger has started this group. It's a volunteer organization that is aimed at helping parents who have sick children in the PICU/NICU. She is looking for volunteers all over the country that are willing to be on call in your area. What a great idea! Being that I've had a child in the hospital more than once. Actually my son was in the PICU for a day and thankfully was healed and only their for a day. My daughter was hospitalized twice for a week and she wasn't in the PICU, but it still was tough. So, I can ONLY imagine what it's like for families when their children are there for an extended time and especially if they're critical. Many of you know about my friend Shannon, who spent many weeks in the PICU with two of her children who ended up dying from Alper's Disease. It was horrible. She continues to help these families even after her children are gone.

This organization is called Survival Mode Parent. You can sign up to volunteer at that website. Please spread the word! Also, if you're into contests at all, here's an incentive. You can win a blog makeover. Not just one but FOUR...one for each season. How cool is that? If you're interested in that, go to this blog and follow the details.
