Hey everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful day. Rosalie was not expected to live 12 hours but 8 1/2 months later by the grace of God alone, here she is :) She is making positive steps every day! We thought we would share a quick video of Rosalie and how she is doing :) Love you all! Thank you for all the prayers. She will wake and show us her eyes in God's time. Until then we have to stand together and keep believing and receiving the healing that is already done in Jesus Name. Thank you all for loving Rosalie but most of all thank you for loving our Lord and Savior. God bless!

Four years ago our Rosalie went to be with Jesus (seriously still jealous(maybe eager or anxiously waiting better fits 😉)....anyways......what a messy life we lived through and in for the last several years but friends what a mighty God we have who brings beauty from ashes. We have experienced heart ache beyond anything I have ever felt, a messy marriage for a while and many other things but today this post from 4 years ago caught my eye and encouraged me so much. I see beaut...y in our post from 4 years ago.

"Until that time arrives I will continue to be a slave to Jesus Christ in whatever way he needs me to serve Him"

How faithful He has always been to wade and I but this took my breath always. This is still his heartbeat in us even 4 years later, as we move our family to California to give our lives, as followers of Jesus, to the refuges there.

We love our Rosalie and miss her desperately but because of the hope we found in Jesus we can't help but serve Christ by sharing with those who have rarely heard. What an amazing God we serve. May we exist purely for his glory...always sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.

If you would like to get updates or hear more about what the Lord has called us to in California please PM me your email 😊

After Rosalie died wade and I knew that we would not have made it in marriage or life in general without the hope of Jesus. God really started to bring back our heartbeat for people who have never had the opportunity to hear the good news of Gods grace.

We are so grateful for all of you who walked alongside us in prayer and many other ways during everything with Rosalie and wanted to invite you all to be a part of what God is doing in us now because of her sweet little life....

With much time spent in prayer, we will be moving to Los Angeles, California to live among the unreached international people there. We are so humbled that the Lord invites us into his kingdom work and can't wait to share our life and make many new friends with the refuges there. We know that God is already at work there and is walking before us and with us. We appreciate all your prayers and encouragement.

*If you would like to know more about what we are doing shoot me a message to share our heart or send you some more information.

Today marks 4 years since our life changed forever…

4 years since we have talked to Rosalie

4 years since we have heard her sweet little voice

...

4 years since we have taken a new picture of her running and playing

4 years since we watched her play with her brothers…..

These things all break our hearts to a very deep place…. It hurts so much it actually physically hurt all over. The tears that fall, fall as if there is no end. The hole that will forever be in our heart will never go away. The thoughts of that day 4 years ago will always linger….

Today I am reminded of my savior and even in spite of what we would say was the worst day of our life, I think of how on that day the Lord grabbed me and has not let go.

He has been with me

Loved me

Held me

Caught every one of my tears

Held me

Continues to catch all of my tears

Held me

Made a place for Rosalie in heaven

Is making a place for us

But most important the lord allowed this day 4 years ago to change me.

The last 4 years I have got to know god in a way I never dreamed possible

The last 4 years I have come from such grief into such supernatural Joy

The last 4 years I have learned in a deep way how much I need God…… like I need him like I need air to breathe

The last 4 years my fire for him has not stopped burning

The last 4 years I have learned what it is to have an authentic relationship with my father in heaven

The last 4 years god has allowed me to see things in a whole new perspective, a kingdom perspective

The last 4 years I have grown in my love for all people

The last 4 years the bible has become my life line

The last 4 years I have realized my love for the Lord is far greater than even the love I have for my kids or spouse

I have come to realize that I wouldn’t change the last 4 years of my life for anything. I would never want to go back to the person I was 4 years ago. Even with all the heartache the last 4 years has brought, I wouldn’t change June 6th 2012 for anything because the JOY and GLORY that I now see in God is worth every second of what we have been through.

The hope that we have even when our life seemed to be unraveling held us together like glue. The Lord himself held us up with his right hand. The prince of PEACE laid his hands upon us and turned our weeping into dancing.

Do we miss her sweet little face each and every day? Yes.

Do we still cry with such heartache for our little girl? Yes.

The hope that we have in Jesus, the one who died on the cross for our sins… The one who endured great suffering for my sake….. for your sake…. Is a hope that can never be taken from me.

So on the hard days I will rejoice in his great name….. On the good days I will rejoice in his mighty name.

He was worthy of my praise June 6th 2012

He is worthy of my praise today, tomorrow and forever and ever.

For without him, I am nothing. To him be the Glory forever and ever. Amen

Hey everyone! I can't even begin to guess how long it has been since I posted on here, I'm not even sure it still works (ha).

There were a few weeks ago that were very much a rough time for me and wade we were missing Rose so much, Our marriage had just endured probably the toughest time we have ever faced. "The enemy prowls like a lion waiting for someone to devour" the enemy is constantly trying to pull us into his tricks and lies. I can't help but share that only because ...of Christ is my marriage still standing today. Only because of Christ am I able to function. Only because of Christ do I have any hope. Not hope In this life but the one to come.

The bible tells us that there is a hope in Christ that no matter what we face here no matter the circumstances he is with us. He is near the broken hearted and crushed in spirit and he loves us.

I sit here in Provo,Utah just overwhelmed in the presence of Christ. There is such a good news and a hope we have in Christ and Without Him I'm lost... What ever you are facing today I can't stress enough how important it is to go toe to toe with God through your pain and heartache. If you have a choice to either turn away or share your deepest heartaches with Christ I promise he wants to hear your words. When we talk with him through our darkest pain, he is able to bring a healing that no one or anything can bring. He loves you and wants to pour his love and grace upon you today! If you are in a valley today look up and look to Christ and he will bring you to the mountaintop with peace a joy. To Him be the glory for ever and ever amen!

So I was looking through some stuff yesterday from the thousands of you who sent us stuff and showed us so much love. I have boxes and boxes of letters that I will never ever throw away.

But one thing that caught my eye yesterday was a tiny little bracelet that Rosalie wore. My heart misses her so much but the beauty of the bracelet some how made me think of her Heavenly beauty.

I don't know about you guys but life is heavy. It seems to never stop being heavy. Rosalie will ne...ver have to feel the heavy that we feel, she is home with Jesus....the place we so desperately want to be and are telling others about. So am I sad yes....but the joy I feel when I think about her with Jesus is a breathtaking imagery of my sweet baby girl.

One thing God has been helping me see day after day is......we don't have to wait till heaven to feel that kind of comfort. When he died on the cross he sent us His spirit and he is ready to help us when life is heavy. But I also have been seeing how much of a choice it is. We must choose to seek God when life is heavy. We must come to the end of ourselves and fall humbly to our knees before His throne.

We will have really emotions but it's our choice to either dabble in sadness, fear, worry, hate, anxiety, bitterness, anger...,, or we can choose to fall to our knees knowing our strength comes from God moment by moment. We were not created to be able to handle life's heavy standing up tall but rather on our knees.

If life is heavy for you today call on His name....God and only God has the power to bring you above your circumstances no matter what your facing. God is and will always be the source of our strength.

We must stop trying to standing so tall during life's trial and start falling humbly to the one who brings peace.

Love you all and thank you all so much for helping carry our burden In prayer and letters and encouragement when Rosalie was still here.

When I see this picture it makes me think of Jesus and how he reaches for us. We all come from different things...we have all fallen short but what remains constant is the hand our Father extends to us in mercy and grace waiting for us to grab it. There are people here that judge harshly but Jesus came for the sinners not the healthy. No matter what you have done or how far you have fallen, no matter what people say about you or how they judged you, his hand is ready to grab you out of your darkness. You have never fallen to far for the forgiveness and mercy of God. Turn from your darkness today and follow Him into light.

I started reading through some of my most intimate thoughts I had wrote as a prayer to God just days after Rosalie’s accident and I wanted to share one with you……

“I am struggling right now Lord I know that I need you more than anything else that I need right now…. I need you just so I can take breath after breath Lord. I feel very alone, hurt and angry. We had one of the most difficult nights I have had so far. Lord it was so hard to be woke up at 2am to the nursed on top of...

Over the last year since Rosalie's passing we have prayed and prayed for clarity on how we can help bring glory to the kingdom in such a horrible tragedy we have faced. As we prayed it became clear that the Lord has called us to help marriages get through the pain of loosing a child. Wade and I know we would have never made it without Christ. He has carried us every step of the way. We have seen many many marriage go through hardship after loosing a child and it breaks our he...art knowing that our spouses are the only people that truly understand our heartache. We want to help you fight for your marriage through the pain.

Every detail is not worked out completely but we ask for prayer as we go down this path the Lord has called us to. The ministry is called

Path Ministries
Partnering After The Heartache

A faith based retreat for parents who have lost children to come together seeking the Path to Peace through Jesus Christ. A place to encouraged and build life long intentional relationships with those who have been through the same heartache. A place to find moments of rest.

We are working towards offering weekend retreats for parents to come and be surrounded with people who understand and are going through the same thing.

Prayer would be much appreciated, one for the families I know the Lord is preparing to come to this retreat, and for the Lord to prepare a way for the couples to be able to come with the weekend completely funded by the ministry. We would never want finances to be a burden or a reason couples don't come.

We believe satan wants nothing more than to see a family destroyed in such a heart wrenching time and through Christ's strength alone, we want nothing more than to share the hope of Jesus with everyone going through such a painful time of life.

Please share this and help us spread this word as we want nothing more than to be the Lords hands and feet helping people find a Path of Peace in Jesus Christ.

This song always brings my eyes to look on things above, towards my Father in Heaven. I hope today, with the many who are struggling through your own trial, will find peace in our Lord today.

"I give You my life

I give You my trust...
Jesus

You are my God

You are enough
Jesus

My heart is Yours

My heart is Yours

Take it all

Take it all

My life in Your hands

I lay down my life

And take up my cross

Jesus

For You are my God
Whatever the cost

Jesus

For You, Jesus

All to Jesus I surrender

All to You I freely give

I will ever love and trust You
In Your presence I will live"

Three years ago I laid next to my sweet Rosalie as she drifted off to sleep. Tonight I am reminded that It has been three years since I got to hear her sing to me. Three years ago I heard her sweet voice sing:

"Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so........

Her voice was so innocent and pure as she sang with her child like faith to our Lord.

...

We miss her more than we will ever be able to put into words......

Tonight as I laid with Jarrick, with tears filling my eyes, I remembered what it was like to hold Rosalie. As I laid with him he asked me for the first time in weeks to sing Jesus loves me to him. Then he sang it to me....... What a special reminder from God tonight about how much he is with us and home much he loves us.

Jesus loves us so much!

Life is hard with so much pain and hurt surrounding.

So thankful Jesus has brought us hope when we thought there was none left.

He wiped our tears for our eyes.

He piece by piece is taking our broken hearts and putting them back together.

He brought us a peace and joy that surpasses all understanding.

He understood when we felt like no one else could.

He stood by us even when we were struggling with "why".

He carried us when we could no longer stand.

But most of all he healed our sweet Rosalie and made a home for her in heaven. 💗💗

We will always miss her, feeling such a pain to the point where it's hard to breath, but we know our Father in Heaven is faithful and he will continue to carry us every step of the way. What a mighty God we serve!

There aren't enough words to describe the joy I feel in being a mother. These sweet boys continue to bring us so much constant joy. It brings us such peace to know that they were the Lord's children first. God has called wade and I to raise them to know, love and serve our Lord with all their heart so they too will share the good news of Christ in their life.

We imagine our sweet Rosalie running in such peace as she has knelt before our Lord in Heaven. She served a mighty pu...rpose here for our Lord in her short life.......my heart couldn't be more full knowing she has reached the place we so long to be. Until then we are going to share hope, joy peace and salvation, through Jesus, with all who surround.

Love all you moms and dads.....hug those sweet babies but most of all teach them to know, love and serve our Lord with all their hearts, minds and souls.

Happy Mothers Day!

Gods hands are the only hands that lead and carry us through life's struggles, giving us hope, peace and joy we never thought possible.

When life takes an unexpected turn it can be very hard. Truth tells us that God has plans to give us hope and a future and as we walk through life's struggles he is there to lead and carry us. There is peace and joy to be found in Christ no matter what we may face.

"You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. (Psalm 139:1-5 NIV)

Mommy and daddy miss you our darling Rosalie. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you and the joy you brought to our lives. We know that you were our Lord's child first and for that our hearts can find a joy beyond our understanding. We love you baby girl!

To any mom or dad who has lost a child my heart is heavy with you as you miss him or her day after day. May the peace of God surround your life today.
