Spreading a Little Hope

Katie and Kayla Go Greek!

My heart is so full as I watch these girls pave the way for so many! What confidence and perseverance to be the 1st ClemsonLIFE gals to go through the sorority recruitment process. Thank you sororities for welcoming them with open arms. Your lives will be forever...

Courage=Vulnerability=Discipleship

Recently, Hope and I had the privilege of attending the National Down Syndrome Congress Convention in Orlando. We were 2 of the over 4000 individuals in attendance—many of whom had Down syndrome. This is only our 4th convention in 23 years, although I wish we had...

Do You Have a Backup Plan?

One morning this summer, as I was preparing to leave the house for an appointment, Hope came in my room dressed in her workout clothes.  Her normal routine in the summertime has been to wake up, eat breakfast, work out at 9 Rounds, shower, eat lunch and ride her bike...

Fighting Fears and Pursuing a Passion

This past year of blogging has been a thrill for me, a step out in faith and being vulnerable—baring my struggles and joys as Hope continues her journey to independence.   I want to say “thank you” for sharing this journey with us. Now that Hope has graduated...

Slipping on My “Peace” Shoes

Class of 2016

College graduation…less than 2 weeks away…what does this mean for Hope?  What does this mean for me as her mom?  What is my role to become now? So many questions flood my mind as we anticipate the achievement of another milestone.  Who would have thought, when Hope...

Our “Happily Ever After”

This past December brought great excitement to our family as our oldest son Blake proposed to a precious young lady, Christina.  One of the greatest desires as a parent is that your adult child will find the “right” person to marry—a person that loves the Lord, that...

Soaking In Today

Hope is home from college.  It’s spring break 2016.  I need to get in spring break mode.  It’s hard for me unless I leave town and get away from all the things that grab my attention, yet, if don’t get a new mindset, I will miss a rare opportunity to spend some...
