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...

day of hope prayer flag project


 August 19th – Day of Hope Prayer Flag Project is a profoundly moving, poignant and healing event that was created to help inspire people who have experienced the death of a child to create meaning amongst their grief. Not only is this project an incredibly touching way to honor these children’s lives, it also helps to break the silence surrounding the death of babies and children. Each year there are thousands of people taking part across the globe, 
making this a truly inspiring event.

This past week as we vacationed at Half Moon Lake I
made a prayer flag for Kristen. I photographed it hanging near the lake that Kristen loved. It truly brought me joy to sit for a minute and 
create something to honor her.

Each year I also paint Kristen a rock.
