Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Another Memorial Day is behind us and we did not have a parade here locally. We usually do that on July 4th and honor the veterans. But as I was heading to bed, I was looking for something to read, and I came across my father in law’s book that he wrote last year. His older sister died ten years ago, and as he was going through her things, he found a stack of neatly tied letters that he had written to his parents back in 1944 as a 19 year old training as an infantryman and then heading into combat. And it’s a fascinating glimpse into that era.

From these letters, he takes the reader through his basic training, how just checking a simple box at the top of a test form changed the entire course of his military career. His embarkation to Europe, then heading into France…and being wounded in November of 1944.

It’s one thing to watch the movies portray what happened—it’s another to see a family member’s recollections. And this book, written mainly for his family and fellow soldiers, just captivated me. So on this day after Memorial Day I wanted to mention that. Here's a link to see more about the book.
