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.

I spent some of the weekend trying to write thank-you cards to the many people who have given to us the past few weeks. Ironic that I bought the cards at Target with a gift card someone had sent. Some of the people are from as far away as Alaska, and some are in our community, like the lady in our church who turned around after the service last week and handed me a check. "The Lord prompted me to give this to you."

I didn't know what to say. There are so many others in our country and community who are in a much worse situation than we are, but I took the check as another affirmation that God is up to something and that he is going to help us through this next season.

I can't help but think of the father in some distant land who is weeping now because his child is sick and needs medicine, something simple, and he can't get it. And here I am with a roof over my head and dealing with a home issue. It's humbling and challenging at the same time. Maybe you're going through something like this right now. Hang in there and let's see what God is going to do.

One of the teachers or administrators at our children's school contacted the local NBC affiliate about our home issue and early on they called Andrea. We haven't been in any condition to talk to the media about this, other than on my program, and even that is debatable. But the news crew is supposed to come today and do a video shoot. Our hope is that it will raise awareness of the issues we're facing and that some people might be helped. If they actually do the story, I'll provide a link here in the coming days.

I've also been getting good feedback about Dogwood. Thank you for those of you who have purchased a copy. Some old high school friends have bought a bunch of them and I'm grateful for that. (Obviously they hadn't read it before they purchased it.) But if you want to buy a copy from Amazon, click Dogwood.
