- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo
- family unity, harmony, love, strength, joy, happiness
- anything else you feel God puts on your heart

Hour of Prayer

Today is day 24 of Kristin's hospital stay. Can you please join us in prayer for these specific needs:

• Continued discernment for the Doctors and Nurses (who have been amazing!!). Kristin's health is very complicated, and has required extra care.
• A decrease in muscle spasms and pain!
• For Kristin's appetite to return and energy to eat.
• For improved mobility.
• For Shawn & Kristin's kids as they continue to adjust to Mommy being in the hospital. 
• Health and strength for Shawn and kids, Grandparents and siblings.
• For Shawn as he is being stretched between Home, Hospital and Work.
• A MIRACLE... Complete Healing!!

An hour of Prayer...
It would be great if we could all gather in Kristin's room to pray. Unfortunately that is not possible. Instead, we are asking everyone who is willing to set aside some time WEDNESDAY JAN 29th between 6:30pm-7:30pm to pray specifically for Kristin. ** In your own homes **

"For where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I among them."
- Matthew 18:20

* Gather with your friends * Care Group * Family * or go on a Prayer walk * find a quiet spot alone * on your knees or on the couch! * 

Kristin has said on this blog many times "your prayers have blanketed us in Peace".
It's so great to be a part of a family who is willing to hold up Kristin and each of us  in prayer.

Thank you!
~ Kristin's Family

    Hey Soul? Feels like there's a million things to do today, but really there is always only one thing:
    Just. Stay. Calm.
    "The Lord Himself will fight for you.
    Just stay calm." Ex. 14:14
    God will do the battle for you. You just do the breathing in Him.
