Duck Jam release is HERE!!

It’s here! It’s Here!! IT’S HERE!!!

Official launch date for the Kayleigh’s Birthday Bash!!!

This year’s name… DUCK JAM!
Johnny Sandlin’s Duck Jam benefitting the Prayers for Kayleigh Foundation. If you don’t know who Johnny is, it’s worth a little google searching. Johnny’s amazing musical career has had him working with some of the most well known names in the business. He and his family, who are VERY private people, chose to bless the PFK Foundation by gathering artists from Johnny’s legendary life for a benefit concert. We have 3 stages, 30+ acts, and music starting at 11:30 am on Saturday, May 13, 2017. We are looking forward to a day celebrating this amazing man’s life, remembering our Kayleigh, and most importantly – raising money for pediatric cancer.

Mark your calendars and come join us.

Happy Friday! Spring break kicked off in our house. We are looking forward so some wonderful family time together. I pray you all have the opportunity to enjoy the friends and family around you this weekend.

Please continue to pray for Sawyer. Initial reports on her surgery are good. Pray her body stays strong and that she heals quickly. Isn’t our God an awesome God?

Until tomorrow,

11 Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him. 12 Remember the wonders he has performed, his miracles, and the rulings he has given,

Hello friends,

It’s been a long time since I posted a prayer request, but tonight Kayleigh’s precious kitty cat friend, Sawyer is in need of you prayers. Sawyer has a different type of brain cancer than Kayleigh’s, but it is a persistent bugger. My friend Jamie, Sawyer’s mom, posted an update this morning. I’m pasting the entire thing below. Watching Kayleigh’s friends battle is a difficult thing. I know what Jamie’s heart feels like right now. I know what it’s like to have to hold it together because your child needs hope and strength and they draw that from you. I know that fear of the unknown.

I also know that our prayer warriors can absolutely move mountains, because we serve and Almighty God. So friends, tonight, storm heaven for Sawyer.

From Jamie …
11 months ago my entire world changed. I always knew I was meant for great things.. I thought I’d be famous or rich or solved world hunger. However I never imagined I’d get to be a mother to a real live super hero. I thought the first time I had to tell people that Sawyer had cancer was hard but I’m finding it even more difficult to let everyone know that we got some devastating news yesterday. Super Sawyer’s cancer as reoccurred already. She has 1 tumor growing and 2 new questionable spots. She is currently getting a spinal MRI and a lumbar puncture to see if it has spread into her spinal fluid. Until we get results back from that we are unsure of what course of treatment we will take. Her oncologist and neurosurgeon feel as though we need to be aggressive so she will be having brain surgery at Le bonheur hospital tomorrow morning to resect as much of the tumor as possible. We feel your prayers around us and I know they help so please be praying for us! Sawyer is handing all in stride as usual and I am in awe of her strength.
Galatians 6:2-3
2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3 If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.

Verse 2 is awesome, but I love verse 3. There is perspective to be had there. Indeed, none of us is too important to help another. Thank you for standing with us. Because of people like you, no one has to fight alone.

Until tomorrow,

Psalm 46:10a
10 “Be still, and know that I am God!

Be still… that is often times one of the most difficult things for us to do. I know that I don’t look forward to still moments… still moments mean I have time to think, time to miss Kayleigh, time to be sad. Time to think about what is missing. So, rather than be still, I keep going, pushing, doing. My plate is over flowing, yet I continue to take on more. And guess what? That works for a little while. But it is also absolutely exhausting.

Tonight I am reminded that when God said “Be Still,” it wasn’t a suggestion. God said BE STILL as the ultimate authority figure. He tells us to be still for our benefit. All the other things going on around me are still just as important as they were this morning, I still have a to do list a mile long, problems are still bombarding me from all directions, and those things are ok. I’m taking a little time to be still, and all of that mess will still be there in the morning. But I will have a different frame of mind, because quite time with my Lord resets my mind.

Until tomorrow,

This is what it looks like when you fail to be still and hit the wall… Kayleigh at about 18 months 💜💜💜

March 21, 2017

It’s been another incredibly crazy day around here. I must say, the speed at which my life is running at right now would best be described as “breakneck.” So many different irons in the fire and far too many hats to wear, it is exhausting. If you’ve seen me in the past few days I’ve probably looked pretty harried. Thankfully, the craziness seems to be productive. Much is coming together, and for that I am thankful. Even more so, I am thankful I can see some vacation coming in the near future. This mama needs some time to chill!

I would very much appreciate you prayers for rest, strength, and details to continue to fall into place. We have been blessed to watch God in action these last months, so I’m not worried – I know full well who is in charge. I’m just tired. But that is ok too, because when I reach the end of myself, God always comes to my aid – carrying me where I need to go. How blessed I am to be able to say, there is a great deal of peace to be found in my own weakness.

And just like brokenness can be beautiful, so can weakness. God shows up in the most amazing ways when we get out of the way. Who would have ever thought I would find myself so thankful for all my limitations and short comings? What a strange mindset to find myself in. But now, I have discovered I can see Jesus so much easier in my weakness. How thankful I am for my Savior.

2 Corinthians 12:9
9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

Until tomorrow,
