Update September 5th 2016

Summer for us is officially over as we start our little homeschool classes tomorrow. Its been a whirlwind of a summer with a few big trips, some small ones, family visits, and all the everyday summer highlights like pool parties, day hiking, paddling on the river, ice cream runs and potting training! It has also been an extremely emotional season for us with personal and extended family struggles. I know a bunch of you took time in August to pray for me and my family. I want to thank you for doing that. There is something really special when you know that people are collectively lifting you up in prayer.

With that said there are a few things that I would like to ask you to be praying for in the next coming months...

~ I have been having a few more symptoms, nothing major, but it always hard when things start getting more difficult physically. Would you pray for healing and peace as I live each day one day at a time. 

~ We start school back up tomorrow!! Please pray for me that I would have the energy and faithfulness to love on and teach my children well. I enjoy having them around me and teaching them at home, but it can be challenging too. 

~ My next PET scan is Oct 7th. Please would you pray that whatever the outcome I would have peace leading up to and after the scan. It can be an extremely emotional time going through scan after scan waiting and wondering and then getting results. Some of you know what this is like... please pray for us as we wait and wonder. 

God has also been so faithful and gracious during these days...

~My youngest is responding so much better to our training and discipline. We still have hard moments but man what a difference a few months can make. Praise the Lord. He turns three this week and I am just so thankful for who he is and what awesomeness God has in store for his life. 

~I was able to do so much this summer! All of our trips went smoothly and we were able to make some beautiful memories together as a family. 

~The Lord has been working on my heart lately and bringing healing in an area of my life that I didn't realize I needed healing. It has been really hard but so important. 

I pray that you all are well and thank you so much for your love and prayers!


P.S. A friend sent this song to me a few days ago and it really speaks to where my heart is right now. Please have a listen. Sandra McCracken God's Highway


  1. Aimee, I am so glad to hear that you had a summer full of making new memories. Praise the Lord for His mercies! I will continue to pray for you and your family, especially as you are experiencing new symptoms. I pray He will give you the strength and wisdom to teach your children well, to rest your body when you need to, and to grow together with your family closer in Christ. Praying for peace and trust in the outcome of your PET scan. Praying for healing. Praying for joy in the little things. Above all, praying for a peace that passes all understanding.
