Prayer Request

All, if you could please be praying for my wife, Lisa, at 1:15 EDT today. She’s having a procedure done to reduce the extreme swelling in her nose. We are truly hoping this gives her some relief.

Thanks and God bless you all.

All, it seems since before I went to bootcamp, my family has been under one kind of concerted attack, or another. First, it was my marriage; then our health, sleep, finances. And now our little girl’s health. Again.

About a month ago, she was in the hospital with an extremely high fever, and was dehydrated as a result. Now she’s been struck ill again.

This week, my wife Lisa, is supposed to leave for the Captivating Women’s Retreat. It seems that everything that’s happened recently has had one goal: keep her from going.

Despite knowing, and receiving multiple confirmations, that she is supposed to go.

Please join us in praying against these things that assault her womanly heart, and seek to take her out. Please pray that God clears the way for the wonderful time he has planned for her.

Thank-you, and God bless you all!

How can I be praying for you?

Friends, my friend Kevin Haggerty is a good guy, and a great friend of this blog. Kevin and I have guest posted for one another, swapped tweets, etc. He has keen sense of humor, has his finger on the pulse of pop culture, and writes some of the funniest posts I’ve seen (his “Friday Funhouse” series).

More importantly, Kevin loves Jesus, and strives to follow him where he leads. You may, or may not, know, but Kevin was let go from his teaching job earlier this year. Despite having a baby on the way, he and his wife, Kim, felt the Lord leading them into the direction of self-employment. Kevin fell in love again with design, and launched a business, KR Graphix. After some initial business, things seem have largely dried up. (More details are available on Kevin’s blog).

All of that is to say: please pray for Kevin and Kim. That they would hear clearly, and that Jesus would provide. And if you are in need of some design work, please check out his business, KR Graphix.

On a personal note, I’ve seen God do some amazing things for me and my family this; I know he can do the same for Kevin. Please join in praying that he does so in such a way that he alone gets the glory.

Thanks, friends!

Thank-You/Bella Is Home

Thanks go out to Jesus, all of you who prayed, and the kind hospital staff. Bella is home, and back to her normal six-year-old self.

Lisa and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for caring about us.

How can we be praying for you?


Friends, my daughter, Bella, has been very ill the past few days. My wife and I have been trying to manage her illness at home, but have been unable to keep her hydrated due to near constant vomiting.

Today, we took her to the ER thinking she would get bolused, and released. Instead, she was admitted. While we’re thankful to have caught it in time, we would also appreciate your prayers. Bella is just six, and I’m sure is feeling very overwhelmed. In fact, I probably don’t need to tell you, it’s hard on the whole family.

So please pray for Bella’s healing, and grace for Lisa, Jonathan (our son), and me.

Thanks much, and many blessings to you!
