Jogging for Jack 2014

As many of you know, we are big supporters of GiGi's Playhouse.

(Meeting Drew's family for the first time in person at Gigi's Playhouse.  We LOVE them and so grateful for their friendship!)

We are participating in their annual 5K event on June 7th, and I'm inviting you to become a member of our team! Jogging for Jack!  Last year we found out about the 5k two weeks before the event...and had a BLAST!  We would LOVE for you to join us this year!!

About Me

My photo
The name of this blog was inspired by Kristin Armstrong's devotional book, Strength for the Climb. I am a midwest girl married to a handsome, hardworking, God-fearing man and the mother of two boys. My eldest son, a social butterfly that has enough energy and excitement to make anyone tired and a personality that will make you giggle with laughter. My youngest son, can cuddle like no other, and his eyes will speak right to your soul. Both of my sons have taught me more about God's grace and goodness. We are blessed to have an extra chromosome in our family as our sweet Jack was diagnosed at birth with Down syndrome. With that, I am reminded daily to trust and rely on God's perfect plan on this journey called life. I am a child of God and grateful to my Heavenly Father for His continued blessings, guidance, wisdom, and most importantly for saving my soul.
