Those folks who become like family.
Years ago, when Josiah was just a baby, we took a church in Central Missouri. There I was blessed to become bosom friends with one of my most favorite people on the planet. Gee Gee (as Josiah called her) just has that special way about her. She would come to my house, bringing gifts of bananas (Josiah's favorite). She would send me off for a nap and play with Josiah. Heaven for a mom of a busy baby boy.

Gee Gee (who also goes by Jennifer) has an equally precious family...who have also become some of my most favorite people on the planet. During the height of our moving activities, I was devastated to learn that my friend Mindy, Jennifer's daughter, had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.
Mindy is the homeschooling mom of 4 young kiddos. She has the voice of an angel and has already faced battles in her life that would leave most of us low. She has made the decision to undergo homeopathic and natural remedies to help her body fight this cancer.

I can tell you that I am encouraged by her every day. She has been so transparent about this battle of her life. She and her family are walking by faith and trusting that God is going to not only provide healing, but the monies necessary to fund her natural treatment.
For those of us who have faced life-threatening situations, we understand the daily battle one goes through to take every thought into captivity. We also understand the new urgency to appreciate life to its fullest despite what is going on around us. We also cherish every Intercessor and word of encouragement that crosses our path.
Mindy is very active on Facebook and I know she would love to have more friends who would be encouraged by her journey.

The number ONE thing you can do is to keep Mindy and her sweet family in your prayers. Pray for strength and encouragement for Mindy's husband. Pray for Mindy's precious babies...that they don't fear and will continue to grow and thrive during this time. Pray for Mindy's mom, Jennifer and her dad, Glen. They are strong in the faith. You have never met more faithful people. Pray for Mindy's sister, Missy and her husband, George. Missy is Mindy's strongest defender. Pray for Mindy's brother, Matt and his wife, Ashley. Pray for Mindy's niece and nephews. Pray that God will make Himself known in every area of this precious family's life.
