Brady and Christy Haynes, another former youth minister at FBC, Kentwood were featured in a magazine in the area where they now live.  The article was about ” two of the Bays 50 most beautiful people LOL The coolest part is that the article was about who we are on the inside and they talked about our marriage. ”  If you know Brady and Christy, you already knew that!  It’s nice to know others also recognize that though.

God is awesome!!! Your prayers are such a blessing!! Dad is going to be able to start his chemo back up today. The oncologist was concerned about his liver because it didnt show up to good 3 weeks ago in a CT and then last week his protein and magnesium levels were down. Last weeks CT showed that dad’s liver looked remarkable (that’s how they described it) and the cancer in the liver has gotten much smaller in size. Yesterday his protein levels were back up and his magnesium was still down but not as much. I believe and know God wanted us to see more of his work. If last weeks bump in the road wouldn’t have happened then we wouldn’t know how great his liver was doing. Thank you God!!

I saw this over the weekend on the Insp channel.  I hope it inspires you too.  I think we are capable of so much more than we do.  I also believe most of us do not live up to the potential God sees in us.  This is one example of those who stepped out to live out the Scripture at the top of this post.
