Back home to a “new” normal

Hi, friends,

Just a quick note to say we are safely home. We spent about 4 hours home Thursday and then left for the Joni and Friends Disability Ministry Summit conference.

It was exciting and exhausting; God’s presence was surely there, and it was an honor to be a part of it. Needless to say I am emotionally and physically exhausted. It took us 4 hours to pack up our 2 tables and we shipped 10 boxes home and filled every inch of Joel’s car. We unloaded it last night and my car is still packed with all the heirlooms.

I will be checking email and getting orders out Tuesday or possibly Wednesday (with a free little gift for your patience!)

Once I can upload some photos I look forward to sharing more with you about the conference too!

Thank you, thank you for all your loving prayers. Please continue to keep the prayers going for our community. Over 1800 homes were lost. In my son’s school district alone, 20 staff members and nearly 400 kids lost their homes. I remember before people donated items even such as Halloween costumes for the kids and Christmas ornaments for the families. We’ve not yet seen any of the devastation, as those areas are closed to non-residents and we want to respect their space as well, so in some ways it all seems surreal to read about Poway in USA Today and see videos of the president who was just up the street.

Bless you all,
