I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

a few more crafts

Crafty I'm not, thankfully, my girls are. We have 2 weeks until our handmade donated 
items need to be ready for the festival, which is a fundraiser for the 
Children's Hospital here in the valley. 
We have had fun making several different items. The past few days we have been
making hair clips and headbands. They remind me so much of Kristen.
When she lost her hair we made her several..
She wouldn't leave the house without a bow or a hat.
Her bow board still hangs in her room full of bows, headbands and flowers
These turned out so cute that we decided to make several more for the cancer patients.








Please continue to pray for the George family. Joany has mentioned that her
daughter Ashleigh, who is in basic training, is very distraught. She has asked that we send
Ashleigh a card or a letter of encouragement. 
You can send me an e-mail me and I'll get you the address.

These are awesome! I plan on making a few for my girls for Christmas! We've been keeping the George family close to our hearts and in our prayers.
