April 25, 2017

What an awesome day it has been! Tim and I had a wonderful time doing the Cooper and Company morning show. Those guys were a fantastic way to start the morning. But man – my hat is off to them for being TV ready before 6:00 in the morning. That was tough for this night owl! After we did the morning show, we stopped in next door at the WZYP radio station. The morning host, Mojo, was so gracious to let us crash their show as well. There is just something about getting to share Kayleigh’s story that make my heart smile. She’s touching hearts from heaven and it is a beautiful thing!

Of course ending yesterday at 12:00 am and starting today at 4:30 am has made for a tired mama. But it is a good tired.

I do have a special prayer request tonight. I have a very special friend -her name is Lindsey. I met this beautiful young lady at St. Jude – not the place you want to meet people. This sweet girl has the most beautiful of faiths. She is young, yet steadfast in her faith, and filled with spunk and strength. And she is going to need it. Her foe is DIPG.

Would you please pray for my precious friend? She has been experiencing additional symptoms recently. Please pray for peace. Pray a hedge of protection around her heart and mind and family. Pray for miraculous healing. Our God is big enough!

Proverbs 31:25
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.

Continue to stand fast beautiful girl, we will stand with you

Until tomorrow,

April 24, 2017 – Faith

It’s been a long day, but as always – God knows what I need to hear. In my devotion tonight, the passage talked about faith. The verse is one I love…

Hebrews 11:1
11 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

I am so thankful that my faith rests with the one who holds everything in his hands. He has all the answers, and since I a with Him, I don’t need all the answers. I can just follow Him and He will get me where I need to be. That may sound like a simple ou too on life, and in a way it is. But simple does not mean easy. Too often our brains get us in trouble – thinking of every possible outcome until our joy is replaced with worry.

It is a challenge to walk by faith. But I have learned that it is a challenge worth taking. God never lets me down. He often answers my prayers in ways I do not expect, but He never leaves me.

Psalm 37:5
5 Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.

His word is full of promises!

Until tomorrow,

April 23, 2017

It’s been a busy but great weekend. ‘Carrow was able to speak at and participate with local Women of Worship conference yesterday at First United Methodist Church in Falkville, Al. This morning we made it to our home Sunday school class with friends near and dear to us followed by a wonderful time of worship and message at Central Baptist. And tonight we had the pleasure of worshipping at Speake Christian Fellowship a few miles down the road from us. They invited ‘Carrow and I to come and share about Kayleigh’s story in tonight’s service. ‘Carrow ended up speaking tonight and sharing about what all God has done for our family and those around us through Kayleigh’s Journey. I have to brag on her when I get the chance because I really don’t enough. And yes “Mr. Whiskers” will eventually share time with ‘Carrow on the stage in some upcoming events but she did an amazing job without me tonight letting God speak through her. Please pray for all of us as speaking opportunities come up for Prayers for Kayleigh as well as the PFK Foundation. We always want the focus to be on God and what He has done for us and through us. So thank you Speake Christian Fellowship and First United Methodist Church for the opportunities to share this weekend in your ministries .

Until tomorrow



April 22, 2017 – Women of Worship

Today was a great day. Women of Worship was a lovely day of fellowship and worship with other women. It was the perfect place for me to share Kayleigh in person for the first time. Writing, talking, sharing, that is part of my healing. I find so much joy talking about how good God is and how he has blessed and taken care of us in every way.

About three years ago I felt God call me to speak – specifically, to encourage women. At the time I told the Lord I was willing, but He would have to make the way and give me the words, because I didn’t really have anything interesting to talk about. So today, as I stood in front of the room full of women, I could see where God indeed made the way. This journey certainly isn’t one I would have chosen for myself, but if I have learned anything, it is that God rarely does what I think He will do, but his plan is always perfect.

Three of the speakers used our Kayleigh verse today, just one more reminder that God knows the plan. It’s just my job to follow.

Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Until tomorrow,

New bands to take when I speak, and my original band that has just about lost its words – but that’s ok I know what it means. Every now and then I see other people with bands that have lost their words. You can’t know how much it means to see those little reminders.

April 21, 2017 – Let’s do This!

It’s late, I’m tired, and it’s been a hard week – full of attacks from every possible direction. Yet as I sit here making sure I have everything ready for tomorrow, I cannot help but smile. I’m excited to share our journey and Kayleigh’s story with other women. I’m excited to get to listen to other women share their stories as well. I’m excited to see what the Lord has in store. I would appreciate your continued prayers through the weekend. It’s going to be busy, but awesome.

So… here we go Kayleigh girl, God’s not done with you yet Baby Duck. Let’s tell the world about His awesome goodness. Let’s share hope. Let’s help build faith. You may not be here in person, but your spirit is alive and well. Let’s encourage people to be positive and look for God’s goodness in everything!

I hope to see some of you tomorrow at the ladies event or Sunday evening at Speak Christian Fellowship.

Daniel 4:2
2 “I want you all to know about the miraculous signs and wonders the Most High God has performed for me.

Until tomorrow,

I do believe Kayleigh says, “Let’s do this!”
