I've learned a few things about communicating (and surviving) in hard places.

On a quiet Sunday afternoon at the swimming pool, our eight year old son, Blake had a headache. His pain quickly escalated to excruciating, he began vomiting, and we rushed to the ER. We quickly discovered he had a severe brain aneurism, and were launched into a crisis we never saw coming. 

Blake spent the next 48 days in the hospital, and for the first few weeks, we weren’t sure he was going to survive, or if he did, how extensive the damage might be. I’m grateful to say Blake is a walking miracle and an answer to countless prayers…and that leaves so much of the story untold. If you are facing impossible circumstances today, please stick around, I’d love to encourage you to keep holding onto hope.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” {Matt. 19:14, NIV}

If you’ve ever felt uneasy communicating about faith with your kids, you’re not alone. I’ve created a simple resource to help get you started!

I sat in the dealership with my hands crossed over the purse in my lap, willing myself not to burst into tears. It was time to sell the boat. When my Dad passed away, my first inheritance was a messy and complicated estate – mountains of work to do with no definitive...
