cancer // the prayer gathering

cancer // the prayer gathering

I’ve been procrastinating the blog post about our prayer gathering last Sunday. I just don’t have the words it deserves to describe the beauty of it, the presence of God, the incredible generosity and outpouring of support. It left me speechless. Over 100 dear family, friends and sweet clients came out to our house on Superbowl Sunday. Some sweet faces that I hadn’t seen in so many years, several who battled cancer as well, and some who I didn’t even… Read more »

So many other sweet people have been taking… Read more »
