It’s Halloween…Please whisper a prayer for my fam

Today would have been my brother’s 41st birthday. He was a Halloween baby.


All of the “firsts” since his passing have been pretty tough on everyone. I know today will be really hard for my family, and if you get just a minute, I would really appreciate if you could join me in lifting them up. I am praying specifically for my mom and dad, my sister-in-law Ragan and the 4 kids (Trey, Madison, Carsyn, & Presley), and my two sisters (Tammie & Stephanie). I feel such a peace that I know comes from the Lord, so please help me pray for peace and comfort for them today especially.


We all love and miss my Michael so very much.

Have a SAFE & happy Halloween, everyone! Pictures of the CUTEST little dinosaur you’ve ever seen coming soon!!

P.S. Go find a dentist who buys back the candy to send to the troops. Smile

I am so sorry for your loss. My mom's birthday was the 1st and it was my second without her.

I wanted to reach out to you though because I notice you read many Christ-centered books. At church the other day, we were talking about letting go of worry and my pastor said something that hit me, "Worry is knowing God CAN, but you don't think he WILL". At that moment I broke down because I thought to myself well you know I actually do think that, and I think that God proved that to me- he could have saved my mom- but he didn't. I didn't realize I was so MAD at God. I want to draw close to him, but I don't know how to forgive or let go of me feeling like he just didn't want to save her. Anyways, I was wondering if you could think of a book that may be helpful in drawing me closer to God and understanding in his timing, but really how not to be mad at him for taking her. I don't want to be mad and I didn't know until that service how upset I really was with him. I just don't know how to get passed it.

If it's easier, you can email me at

Thank you so much for any advice :)

Sending you and your family prayers and hugs. Your brother has such kind eyes--he looks like the type of man that everyone would have been glad to have as a close friend. I hope that, in the years to come, y'all see many of his best qualities emerge in his beloved children.
