This is Emily Grace. She's my beautiful, sweet, compassionate, caring 6 year old daughter.
Our lives were typical. Work hard. Play harder. Our biggest concern was what park to play at and what to cook for dinner.
In July 2014, at the age of 4, we heard these words "Your daughter has neuroblastoma cancer".
After 2 plus years of painful treatment, sickness, loss of childhood innocence, fulfilling her bucket list, Emily Grace died on October 3, 2016.
LIVING THROUGH is where I hope to journal my journey of walking through the valley of the shadow of death. My faith is weak. My hope sometimes shallow. Fear is rampant. Grief is debilitating. YET... God!
I cling to Hebrews 13:8, he "is the same yesterday, today and forever".
If my story can help you pick yourself up off the floor, offer a sliver of hope that you can get through, reveal that you can be full of anger and hurt toward God and still believe...
I'm still in the heart of the valley. Some days I don't know if I'll ever make it out. But I keep walking. Come with me.
