Thank you everyone for all your prayers and support on our journey! Its been a wild journey so far and Lucas obviously likes to keep us on our toes!!
My goal for this blog is to have a place to talk about faith and our family, organ donation awareness, special events as well as book updates. I’ve been meaning to start this blog since the end of 2015. Better late then never right?
So I have to be honest, the other day the kids and I were at my parents house. My mom pulled out a large box of notebooks and binders and asked me “Jess do you want any of this stuff”
One quick glance and I recognized the material…all my AP ( college) class material from high school…. AP Calculas, AP Economics, AP History and my favorite AP ENGLISH (just kidding).
My mother, sister and I were hysterically laughing at the scores of my English tests…. 4 out of 10 with teacher red marks all over the page telling me I was writing all wrong haha. In HS I remember being so frustrated. I told myself I was never going to write a book…writing is torture and my brain seemed to be geared more towards math and science. I was a future electrical engineer in the making.
Well Never say never, right? I think its hilarious now that I’m writing a book.
So about this book….throughout my life there have been noticeable divine interventions that I have kept near to my heart. When Lucas was born and then diagnosed with liver disease, these divine interventions became more profound and eye opening so I started to keep a journal.
After Lucas got his miraculous transplant, I knew would have to share the miracles.
Remembering my English struggles, I prayed for some help.
” God if you want me to share these stories in a book, then you will have to send help! I have no idea what I’m doing! ”
So God sent me help.
The very next day, a publisher called me.
I knew then God sent me His answer.
Even though I despised English, got terrible English grades and said I would never write a book….I took the leap of Faith. The book will be perfect because God’s got this one! I’m just the instrument, but aren’t we all!
