"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Breast Cancer Walk

Words really can't describe how blessed I feel to be apart of this journey alongside my friend Dawn as she fights her battle with Stage 3 breast cancer. Dawn is someone who inspires others along her journey. I had the privilege of walking with Dawn and several other close friends in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk this morning. It was an incredible experience! We decked Dawn out in pink! She was beautiful!! Dawn's best friend of 18 years, Nikki, shaved her hair in support of Dawn. These are the friends God has blessed me with! From the moment we all arrived at the walk, it was raining, and it rained the entire time, but the love, energy, and support you felt from the thousands of people around you, you would have never known it was even raining! The start/finish line... Walking with Sarah along the way... Group photo at Mile 1... We did it! We completed the 5K! At the finish line, such a trooper!
Dawn and her husband Jason. What a loving and supportive couple! Thank you to all of you that have been praying for Dawn, and for those of you that supported me financially on my walk. Please continue to pray for Dawn and her family as she continues her intense chemo treatments in the next few months.
