My name is Colleen. I am wife to Lenny and mom to Cassie, Chad, Marissa, Kendrea, Zachary, Landon, Garrett, Hayden, and Kyla. I am mom-in-law to Micah and to Kelsey. I am grandma to Jordan. I homeschool my three youngest. I do laundry, make meals, manage my home, love my family, follow hard after God.
I believe that Jesus is the Son of God–that He died to rescue me from sin. I believe He rose again and lives. If we believe in Him, and confess Him, and repent of our sin, He saves us and makes us His child for eternity. I love Him because He first loved me. I want to tell the old, old story while I live out my story.
In September of 2015, my 24 year old daughter, Marissa, was diagnosed with Stage III triple negative breast cancer. I started this blog as a way to trace God’s goodness through the hard. After 20 weeks of chemo and a double mastectomy, the cancer recurred in May 2016. She courageously fought for 10 more months. On March 6, 2017, Marissa finished her fight here and went home to glory where she is right now fully experiencing God’s goodness.
We miss her, but we trace His goodness as we continue our journey without her. Someday we will see her. Someday we will weep no more. Someday we will see all the glories of God displayed.
Until then, we know Him. We trust Him. He is good.
You can follow details of her journey on our facebook page.
