Almost ten years ago, God brought a young lady into our life who continues to be a blessing to us to this day. We first met Jenee when she stayed with our family while traveling as a missionary with the Encounter Revival Team (mentioned earlier in this blog). Jenee quickly became a dear friend to our family.
A few years later, God brought Jenee to Baptist Bible College as a student and as a participant in our ministry at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Forest City. During this time, she continued to be a blessing to our family.
Since graduating from BBC, Jenee has been a friend and blessing to our whole family.
When friends began asking us about turning this blog into something more permanent - like a book - our thoughts immediately focused on Jenee.
Jenee, we recalled, had mentioned the desire to write. And we have always been impressed with her God-given combination of humility, authenticity, freshness (as in perspective), and honesty.
She has graciously agreed to take what has been written in this blog and to follow God's leading to write out the story of God's working in the life of our family over the past year as we have together faced the challenges of living with cancer.
We are excited about how God will use this for His glory and, Lord willing, to provide hope for others who face life's uncertainties and difficulties.
Here is Jenee.
And here is Jenee with our daughter.
And here is Jenee with my wife.
It is late afternoon, Saturday. A quiet afternoon. We are enjoying being alone as a family. Not much excitement. Just being together. And that is more than enough for today.
