Today marks 3 years since the 3 ladies pictured started sewing mastectomy pillows and sending them to women in need. They’ve shipped these pillows to women and cancer centers all over the U.S. as well as to Canada, Puerto Rico and England.

Out of that very hard thing have come many, many pillows. 1500 and counting. If you, or someone you know could use mastectomy pillows, please feel free to follow this link to our request form….

I had the opportunity to speak to a group of women at the Inspire 2019 Conference in Des Moines last weekend about my struggles and things I’ve learned. Here’s a short little clip from my talk. (I’m so proud of the fact that I figured out how to edit out the part where I blew my nose :)) My Broken Body:a Biblical View of Body Image When Your Body Fails You

He sat on the couch and listened to How He Loves over and over. We had just learned his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, and this was my hubby’s way of dealing with the news. Worship. Music is how he connects with his creator. Not long after that Corey began singing and playing How He Loves in church, leading the congregation in worship.  I love to listen to Corey sing pretty much anything, but if I was told to choose one last song to hear him sing, it would be that one. Because I know what it means to…
