New ESV study Bible!!!

My best friend Kristi came last week for a quick a trip.  It was such a time of encouragement (and lots of laughter of coarse)!  But one of the highlights was when we went to buy the new ESV Study Bible.  We were so excited...it felt like Christmas...haha!  Anyway, the next morning we woke up early and went to Bean There (one of my FAVORITE coffeeshops...if you've never been get the Island Kiss iced) and started digging into our Bibles.  I know it sounds kinda silly to be so excited about a Bible, but I think what we are really excited about is that there has been a fresh passion and excitement for Gods Word that has infiltrated out hearts...and though the Bible is waaay cool and very helpful, we are most excited about going deeper into the glories of calvary as we read and study the Word!  We also started CJ Mahaney's new book, Worldliness, which is rocking our socks off :)  If you get the chance, pick it up, it is a very provoking book! 

"When someone sets his affections on the cross and the love of Christ, he crucifies the world as a dead and undesirable thing.  The baits of sin lose their attraction  and disappear.  Fill your affections with the cross of Christ and you will find no room for sin."  -John Owen 

Happy Monday!

CaNcEr needs a cUrE!

I wanted to post some links to some of the precious kids that I have had the priveldge of caring for... These are blogs that families update through the joys and sorrows of their journey with cancer... so inspiring.

This sweet boy, Keeghan Barry, has inspired my life so much and I was only with him for one week at Camp Fantastic. His mom has a very honest blog about his story. He passed away one week after Camp was over...but what a joy to spend that last week watching him live!

Last week was a hard week at work. We had two very special patients pass away. Tommy was one of them. He was the smartest kid I have ever taken care of! He was hilarious too...always had something to remind you about :) His story will bring tears to your eyes...his family is going through so much heart ache at this time. I know his parents would appreciate your prayers.

Happy news! Two of my favorite kids in the world... full of personality and FUN!
Sky and Jacob are both in remission from very serious cancer...yeah!!

Thank you, friends, for all your prayers and listening ears as I share my stories!

child like FAITH...

These are my favorite kids to babysit!
When I moved in with the Kee family I didn't realize that one of our pastors  and his family
lived two blocks away...I have had the privilege of hanging out with these super cool kids many times since I moved here.  About a week ago the four of us went on a little adventure around the neighborhood...we had a blast!  We found lots of trash that became treasures to us....everything from a trashcan to a watergun to a leaf blower to a toilet seat.  The toilet seat was definitely something that Benjamin wanted so that he could have a target to practice football!  haha!! 

The girls and I painted each others nails HOT PINK!  We managed to keep things semi tidy :) 
My favorite thing about the Campbell kids is that they are so polite, respectful, and grateful!  It is so amazing to watch them each growing in their knowledge of Christ and the gospel!  Their child like faith has encouraged my heart many times!  :)  

"And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:2-6 ESV)
