Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Gifts for Grace - a day of giving

Thanks to our pastor, Jonathan, and a dear friend, Kathy, we will have a day of giving to honor the life of our precious Grace and her Creator on February 27.  Check out our pastor's blog post for more information.

What an amazing way to honor the life of our baby girl!  We are humbled and overwhelmed by the love and prayers of not only our church family, but also our families, friends, and even strangers from around the world!  Words cannot express how much this has meant to us.

To know the possibility of children living eternally with our Father because of the gifts of others honoring the life of our baby girl moves me to tears.  This is what we have prayed for since learning of Grace's diagnoses.  God continues to use her life to draw others nearer to Him in amazing ways.


  1. Sweet Karen and Chad - I once read that 80% of life changing decisions are made at camp. What a wonderful way to minister to other children in Grace's memory! I will continue to pray that the Lord will give you His peace and you will feel His closeness as you continue to trust His heart.......
