Prayer Reminder:

To all who have committed to pray tonight... THANK YOU!! The thought of so many people lifting Kristin up tonight at one time is overwhelmingly AWESOME! 

Just a reminder, this prayer is in your own home (friends house, walk etc) NOT at the hospital. 

We have chosen 6:30pm-7:30pm tonight, but if that time doesn't work for you please feel free to continue praying any time!

Your comments mean the world to our family, sorry to those who have tried commenting and have been unsuccessful. Blogger has been very fussy! My only suggestion is to try choosing anonymous and leave your name in the comment message.


  1. I will be praying for you Kristen. I know Kori and Keri and have gotten to know you through your absolutely amazing blog. Your writings are such an inspiration to me as you go through this insane time. You are such a blessing and a beautiful woman!

  2. Always praying. Sending our love.

  3. Never stopped parying for you, my you!!!!

  4. Praying fervently for you and your precious family.
    While I was praying, I was prompted to share this. I really like the way in sounds in The Message:
    From Isaiah 40--
    "God doesn’t come and go. God lasts.
    He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
    He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
    And he knows everything, inside and out.
    He energizes those who get tired,
    gives fresh strength to dropouts.
    For even young people tire and drop out,
    young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
    But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
    They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
    They run and don’t get tired,
    they walk and don’t lag behind.

    Bless you. In this day, hour, and every moment. We are storming the gates for you, dear Ericksons.
    Karen Van Egmond and family

  5. Praying for renewed energy and health for Kristin, for peace and calm for Shawn and kiddies and for Kori and Keri and families. A special prayer and hug for Mom and Dad, always there, always loving and supporting all of your babies the best you can.


  6. I am reminded many times throughout each day to lift you all up in prayer; may God be your shield and shelter and rest. There was a lot of fervent prayer this morning at the church (ladies prayer meeting).

    "Glorify the Lord with me;
    let us exalt his name together.
    I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
    he delivered me from all my fears.
    Those who look to him are radiant;
    their faces are never covered with shame.
    This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
    he saved him out of all his troubles.
    The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers them.
    Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him." Psalm 34:3-8

  7. Praying for you all everyday. Praise God for His Mighty Love and may you be surrounded by It, each and every moment. You are loved by so many here on earth, and much more so in the Heavenlies!

  8. Prayers for you and your family that god will be with you and provide comfort for you and your family. May the love of god surround you.
