You dear people. May our God provide you with a peace that passes all understanding. I have come to know you all, as if you were my own family. Looking at it clearer - you are in Christ. If not here in this life, perhaps in our Home, I will be giving you big hugs.

Thank you for sharing your lives with us, who don't know you. I can see God in a different way through you! As we face our own small hills, I am encouraged by your strength in our great God.
Our whole family is lifting you up in prayer.

Thanks for sharing pictures! Ellie's hair is really looking adorable. It does my heart good to see you and imagine you all togetehr as a family in the amazing mountains of Momtana. OOps, that was a type-o, but it kinda works for the pictures.
Much love, The Garcias in Paradise

i've wanted to comment for a long time but haven't been quite sure what to say...i guess all i CAN say is how much of an encouragement you are to ME. i've had struggels in my life...and i can see where i use that as an excuse. but you've been through so much more and you're still giving God all the glory in your life. it amazes me. you're an inspiration...and i've been praying for you and your entire family a LOT. i'm not sure if you know what facebook is. but you can make "groups" that people can join. i made one for ellie. i hope it will bring even more people to your site and cause even more people to pray. again...THANK YOU. you've touched so many people...that you don't even know.

Praying always. <3

Sarah,
Well, I got caught up on the past week all in one night. YOU ARE LIVING LIFE.... what an example you are to me of someone feeling the full impact of life. Your perspective on life has greatly impressed me. Thank you for humbly and generously sharing it with the whole world to see!
I am taking all that is on my heart tonight to our Heavenly Father. If you need some good teaching, Loui Giglio just taught at my church and had an incredible 2 part series on suffering. If you are interested and want to watch it online for free here is the link: http://www.buckheadchurch.org/messages and the title of the series is "When Life Hurts". I hesitate even suggesting it, because I don't want to be trite, or even try to give answers. There is no way I can come close to understanding what you are feeling and experiencing as a family these days.
As someone put it so well, "crying, praying and trusting with you."
Love,
Kristina

These pictures brought immediate tears to my eyes - praise God for your sweet family. You know, I read "Hostage" last week and was just struck anew with how amazing your faith in our Father is - it will be worth it all when we see Jesus and when we see those we love, and be with them forever.
