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. 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!

219 Pillowcases were made today in Memory of Kristen.
This all happened at JEllen's House of Fabric, a quilt store in Ohio.
Jennifer Keltner, who is the executive editor of
American Patchwork & Quilting, 
made a special trip to the fabric store to participate in this event.
This is a pretty big deal as this magazine is number one in the world of quilting.
In February 2011, Sarah and Kristen were featured in this magazine.
Their story continues to spread today. 
Sarah and her mom, Joyce, are truly an inspiration to many.
Thank you for sharing Kristen's light.
It warms my heart to know that her light continues to
burn brighter and brighter with each passing day.
