About Me

Kirkland, Washington, United States
I am a child of God. I am a follower of Jesus. I am a wife, momma, daughter, sister and friend. I love good conversation and hearty laughter. A good cup of coffee is always appreciated. Most of all, I desire to bring others into an experience with Jesus. One that will shape their lives and rock their souls for Him. Geoff is my best friend and amazing husband. Parker is my handsome boy who lives in Heaven. Norah is my bright star and bringer of joy. Tori is my overcomer and peaceful warrior. I live to show Jesus' love to each person He places in my path. I pray this blog strengthens you, comforts you and encourages you and that it MOST OF ALL causes you to want to get to know Jesus in a deeper level.

An Update - Nothing exciting, just normal

I know it's been a long time since my last post, but in all honesty there is not a lot of new stuff to share. Life has just been pleasantly normal lately.

Geoff and I are still attending grief counseling and it has been wonderful. Willie, our counselor, as I have said before, is a wonderful woman of God who has been a true blessing in our lives. So that's been the same.

Work has been normal as well and we are so thankful for that. Geoff and I work in two fields that, praise the Lord, have not been affected greatly by everything that's been going on with the economy.

Church has been normal and that's a blessing to finally feel fully normal again at church. Eventually I hope to teach Sunday School again, but in the mean time I enjoy being a student and filling in when needed. Geoff has been leading worship and I am blessed every Sunday by the songs he plays due to God's leading.

So that's basically it. I told you it was all pleasantly normal, nothing too terribly exciting. We are feeling more hopefully. We are feeling more light. We are feeling God's presence every day and thinking of our beloved Parker everyday.

I am amazed when I think about the fact that this Sunday the 15th will mark 6 months... I am amazed when I think about the fact that this Sunday the 15th will mark a half a year since Parker died... I am amazed and in awe of how God has worked in our lives, filling us with strength and hope. I am amazed, in awe and blessed by how God has drawn Geoff and I so tightly together since our son's death. God is good and I am truly thankful for all that he has done for Geoff and I in these past six months.

And one more thing. I just want to say thank you. Thank you to each of you who have come across my blog, my facebook page or have come across me in person and have mentioned that you have been praying for Geoff and I. It has helped us so much. It is such a blessing to know how many people have been praying for us so thank you so very much!!

You all, each of you, are such a blessing to Geoff and I. We could not have come this far without the support of God, family and all of you wonderful friends.

I definitely see God's healing power occurring in your lives with each and every blog and I try to read them as soon as I see them posted. Thank you so much for continuing to draw closer to God with each day. I'm so glad that in doing so, it has drawn you and Geoff so much closer together as well.

You're both an inspiration to us all.

P.S. Sorry I didn't get the chance to come over and say hi at Forest and Amanda's wedding. I lost track of you guys after all the tables and chairs were set up.
