Thank you for expressing interest in my story, ministry, arts/architecture, writing and nature.
I've been sharing about my wife's second journey with cancer and how our faith in Christ has been foundational to our enduring. As of September 6th, 2018 Laina passed on to eternal life with Christ. She endured the battle with joy, peace and much love. We will miss her dearly. Thank you to all who have prayed for and supported us through this journey.
This is certainly a major life transition for our family. I'm learning what it means to be a single parent, rethinking vocation and seeking the Lord whole-heartedly for healing and direction. It is through these trials that we are finding out how deep the Father's extravagant love is toward us.
Heavenly Father, come and reveal your heart for each person that reads this blog. As you do your work of spiritual formation help us to understand the words that you spoke:
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
