I’m reminded today that every one of us is a masterpiece, created by God for good works He planned for us before we took our first breath.
But it’s hard, almost impossible, for us to believe that in ourselves because we know our faults and failings.
You must believe!
You are deeply, passionate loved by a God who wants more than anything to pour His love all over you so you love yourself and then, love others.
Do you believe?
Can you even begin to understand the depth of love God has just for you?

Some of my most precious memories with Aleya were bedtime.
That was our special time together.
Every night I would tuck her in bed. We would say prayers and talk about the day.
But on Friday and Saturday nights, we took more time for "tuck in".
Aleya loved to plan, so she gave me the choice...
Friday...massage or tickle
Saturday...massage or tickle or if it was a really busy day...snore
Bedtime with Aleya and Daddy was special. Memories I will treasure forever.
As I was taking a moment today to catch up on all the pictures of summer travel of friends and family across the county, I was reminded of this incredible gift by Darla's sister, Amy Geist.
We know that Aleya's story has impacted thousands of people around the world, but it wasn't until Amy gave us this gift where the impact really hit home. We were completely stunned and overwhelmed...
She took a map of the world and placed a pin in every location we had confirmation of people who were praying for Aleya, watched her Celebration of Life Service, or shared a picture of Aleya's quote "Inhale FAITH Exhale FEAR".
Pins on every continent. Impact around the world.
This gift also came with a box of pins. Amy said it was so we could continue to mark where God was taking the story of our little girl to change the world.
We're honored to carry on this tradition so please, if you take a picture of sharing Aleya's message of love and "Inhale FAITH Exhale FEAR", be sure to tag us so we can put a pin in the map.
People around the world are playing a vital part in keeping Aleya's story for her love of Jesus alive.
Only GOD could take the small prayer of our little girl to bring hope and healing to countless people around the world!
In His love,
