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.

Many of you have asked about the poem that our guest Dawn Rae read last week on Chris Fabry Live! It was written by 12-year-old Hallee Cartwright from Tennessee, who passed away earlier this month. Her family has graciously made that poem available to us, so I'll share it here. Please continue to pray for the family and friends of Hallee, whose life and vibrant faith in Christ continue to touch the hearts of those who hear her story.

I AM POEM

I am athletic and outgoing
I wonder about the golden streets and the pearly gates
I hear birds chirping through my window
I see the sunset setting over crystal blue water
I want to live life to the fullest
I am athletic and outgoing
I pretend to be a flower raising up to the sky
I feel wind blowing beneath me
I touch the strings of my guitar as I play a "D"
I worry about people who don't know Christ
I cry for orphans
I am athletic and outgoing
I understand why I am on the Earth
I say words that motivate and help friends and family
I dream of reaching my goals
I try my hardest in everything I do
I hope to be in the presence of the Lord someday
I am athletic and outgoing

This was my neighbor's daughter. The funeral was an amazing worship service. She touch more lives than most adults will in a lifetime.
