Philip “Steve” Steven McMichael

April 24, 1982 – May 13, 2018
Steve, age 36, passed away on Sunday, May 13, 2018. He was a proud native of Hillsdale, LA and a resident of Amite, LA, who was passionate about being a Heavy Equipment Operator. Steve was a member of many Jeep Clubs and Cummins Clubs. Steve had a passion for anything that ran on diesel; whether it was his four wheel drives or heavy equipment, spending quality time with his wife cooking crawfish or anything outside was where he was often found. He had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed hunting and fishing. Steve’s true love was his family and always put them first in everything he did. He would help anyone in need, always shared his huge heart with anyone around and was never seen without his beautiful smile, he never left without a big hug and always said he loved you before leaving. Steve was an incredible husband and father, loving brother and son, and remarkable person who will be deeply missed.
He is survived by his loving wife of 5 ½ years, “My Jenny” McMichael; son, Timothy Alan Humphries McMichael; daughter, Taylor Ann Humphries McMichael; parents, Philip Owens McMichael and Rhonda Harper McMichael; siblings, Rhonda “Michelle” McMichael Honeycutt and husband Jonathan, Matthew “Dewey” Owens McMichael, Aaron Ray McMichael, Joshua Caleb McMichael and wife Haley. He is also survived by his niece, Avery Ann Bellaci; godchild, Alexis Bromell; new puppy, Diesel; and many close friends and extended family.
Steve is preceded in death by his grandparents; and best friend and dog, Tank.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home to assist the family with funeral expenses.
Service Times and information are being developed by the family at this time. Please check back soon.

Update on Josiah Huckaby written by his mom, KK

Update: Josiah is doing really good. They put him on the home vent Friday, and it’s the one we have been requesting. He’s doing great with it! They are going to start a very very slow wean of his steroids. The goal is to get back down to a dose that they know he has done well with. Cardiology came by while I was there Tuesday. His echo that was done last Thursday showed his pulmonary hypertension pressures were stable & pretty much the same as his April echo. So now we are looking at weaning off 1 of his pulmonary hypertension meds. Thanks for the continued prayer. God is so good!!!

 

 

Update on Joanne Seymour written by a friend, Charlotte Bryant

Hi my family and Facebook friends, a much better update on Joanne for today. She and I talked on the phone and she sounded great and said she was feeling much better. Becky (her sister) is staying with her and taking great care of her. They both seemed as if they are having fun in the big Apple. Please continue Joanne in your prayers, they are definitely being felt and we all appreciate them. Thanks

Monday

Then I said: “LORD, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, ….

~Nehemiah 1:5~

 

 

Yesterday, the 2018 graduates were honored at many area churches.  FBC, Kentwood not only had a large number of graduates, but we also had such wonderful Christian young adults in the group.  May you take God with you each day whether you will be in school or on-the-job.

 

Read the Bible

  • Reflect on God as Sovereign
  • Complete any passages you missed this past week

 

 

It was good to have the Dillons at church again.  “Miss” Ruby’s illness has kept them homebound for a year.  How wonderful it was to have them at church!  I know it was wonderful for them too.

 

 

Also, Mrs. Bessie Hayden was back, this time with her oxygen tank.  She wore a big smile, as usual.  I’m thankful again today to the men who built her a ramp to get her wheelchair out of her house.

 

 

I’m also thankful for the elevator at church that enables people like these two ladies to get to our sanctuary.  It is much more than a convenience for others to use when they are not able to climb the steps.

 

 

If you know someone who is not mobile enough to climb the steps at church, please tell them about the elevator and the volunteers who wait out in front of the church to assist those who may need an umbrella, help with a heavy load, wheelchair assistance, etc,  Those volunteers make mobility to the sanctuary not only possible, but also much more pleasant.  The volunteers usually  notice your need before you can ask!

 

 

Pray for the family of Mr. James W. Frazier today.

 

 

Have a fantastic week!

Saturday Evening

“If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him.”

 ~James 1:5 TLB~

 

 

This is an appropriate verse for the ten graduates who will be honored in the morning at FBC, Kentwood.

 

 

Thank-you to David, and Brett and Susan Frazier for helping take our boys and girls to M-JAM at Tall Timbers Conference Center. Thanks to the parents who entrusted us with their children Friday and Saturday and for sending them to missions class on Wednesdays.  What a great week-end we had hearing about God’s calling on lives and missions on the home-front as well as internationally.  We all learned so much!  We came back extremely tired, but we are already making plans for next year.

 

 

Please pray for Mr. Red Pittman who has been hospitalized at North Oaks.

 

 

Mr. James Walter Frazier has been faithful to check on us the last few years.  We think of him as a special friend.  He passed away yesterday.

James Walter “Jim” Frazier, Jr.

Friday

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 

But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Daniel 3:17-18

I love to read about Daniel.  He had such high standards as he served God.

 

 

Mrs. Bessie Hayden got her portable oxygen yesterday and called to say she will be at Bible study this morning.  How many other places could she have chosen to to go today, but the desire of her heart is to be at church studying God’s Word.  We’ll be glad to have her back.

 

 

Pray for Debi Bales as she has  tests today at Cypress Point.  Pray for medical answers.

 

 

M-JAM is tomorrow.  Pray for the hundreds of hearts to be open to God’s word and the message of telling others about Jesus.

Operation Christmas Child 

  • Do you like to paint, draw, crochet, sew, cut with scissors, laminate, etc.?  You will be able to make some items for OCC shoeboxes!
  • Do you shop?  Keep your eyes open for items children need or would enjoy (spoons, small bowls, flashlights, hair ornaments, solar calculators, highlighters, small puzzles and games, hairbrushes, glue sticks, t-shirts. scissors, fishing needs, aprons, small cars and trucks, small dolls, balls, small battery operated clocks, etc.)

 

  • If you received a shoe box two weeks ago, please see me for a label for your box.

 

 

How are you going to help someone know about Jesus this weekend?  One way is to bring them to church and let the Sunday School teacher and the pastor do the “teaching” for you!

I told you how wonderful the ladies’ meeting at Amite was going to be.   I’m sorry if you missed the meeting, because it was even better than our expectations.  I hope you have the opportunity to talk with someone who was there.

 

 

Today begins a new month.  Operation Christmas Child suggests you purchase hygiene items such as bars of soap, washcloths, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, body scrubbers, STICK deodorants, and combs during the month of May.  You can add these items to your shoeboxes or bring multiple of some of these items for us to send as fillers which can be added to boxes that are not completely full when our boxes get to Dallas.

Let me update you on David.  He is feeling much better, eating like a horse, and has gained back six pounds so far.  Thank you for praying for him and asking about him.  He is regaining his strength and hopefully will be back to his usual size and activity level in a few more months.
