Why Blog?

Why blog? My mother brought this idea to me and I was a bit skeptical at first. However, a calling has been felt lately to somehow share my insight and journey as a soldier for Christ. It has been prayed about and I don’t want to risk missing His answer. God blessed me with the […]

Life’s Drastic Detour – Entry 80

I am sitting by TyAnn’s bedside admiring the beauty of the day through her shade drawn window. The shades block out a great deal of light so she can sleep during the day but also allow me a generous view of the cloud covered, dark blue sky. In roughly seven hours, the hospital will discharge […]

Life’s Drastic Detour – Entry 79

I was able to catch up on some rest and even enjoyed a massage, thanks to loving friends God has placed in my life. I feel rejuvenated. Not 100% rejuvenated, but more like myself. It may seem a bit odd, but I have found driving alone to be a real downtime for me lately. It […]

She had her first class today at the Getty Museum. The program is an amazing opportunity for children with cancer. She was […]

These past couple days have been difficult for us to say the least. TyAnn is going through a great deal of pain and discomfort and, as a result of experiencing this for such a prolonged amount of time, she has now started to suffer from depression and anxiety. The panic attacks are heartbreaking. I know […]
