After a long day of tests and scans, here Eli is hearing from his primary oncologist, Dr. Julie, that he is officially cancer free and in remission! While he will continue to get scans every 3 months for the next few years, and blood work done once a month or so for a...

This afternoon I’ve been sitting next to Eli in the hospital as he fights off a 104 degree fever, which he has been battling for nearly 24 hours now.

He keeps getting the shakes and feels just terrible. Whole body hurts.

I wish I could say I am a really good “wait-er,” but the sad truth is, I’m not.

“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”

There it was. Up on the wall of a local coffee shop alongside other inspiring quotes written on cool looking pieces of wood pallet art.

Of course, on the surface, this sounds right. It sounds true.

Earlier today I was reading my wife’s Caring Bridge update on our son, Eli. I was struck by something she wrote. In her post, she shared the lyrics to one of her favorite hymns, “His eye is on the Sparrow.” Verse 2 of the hymn jumped out at me...

“Let not your heart be...

There are few things that bring as much comfort to a follower of Jesus in the midst of a trial than the truths and promises found in the Word of God. When we need hope, when we need an anchor to hold onto, God’s Word provides just that.

For many, Psalm 23 is one of thos...
