About

This blog followed our family’s journey through a thorny avenue in our lives. It chronicles a desperate effort to save Josh’s life from a life-threatening and rare genetic disease called Fanconi Anemia, which leads to bone marrow failure and cancers.   Josh was a pastor, husband, father, brother, and friend to many.   Thousands of saints prayed for healing for Josh and more time in this life.  We really hoped all would turn out well after a necessary bone marrow transplant.  Our journey took a devastating turn when he died a complication of multiple organ failure and left a budding church and our family as a widow and two young boys.  However, faith in Christ and the love and support of others has kept my soul anchored and has comforted our family with peace beyond human understanding.

The blog was started as a place were our church & long-distance family and friends can keep up with our lives and ways to pray for our family.  We have gained many new friends through the process! This blog evolved as many encouraged me to continue to write and I pray about writing a book.  As I transitioned to writing devotionals, my own heart is encouraged by God’s Word and I am continuing to learn and grow.  This blog has been a blessing to me and has encouraged my own faith. We are thankful for giving us your prayers and support!  I hope and pray this blesses you as much as it has blessed me.

Grace and peace,

Erika
