That Could be My Family

For 10 days, my friend Mandi would update our skype group with prayer requests for this beautiful family.  My heart is broken for them.  Every time Mandi would update, I would think, “That could be my husband.  My family.”

From Mandi:

Earlier this month, my friend Jenny called 911 after her husband became disoriented and incoherent. He was immediately taken to ICU with a brain infection and fell into a coma-like state. Over the 10 days that followed, we prayed continuously for his healing, and it was a bit of a roller coaster ride as they doctors would become hopeful that they had a diagnosis or treatment and then things would worsen once again. Two weeks ago, he passed away, leaving behind his wife and five children between the ages of 9 months and 11 years old.

As Jenny moves forward as a single mom after her husband’s death, I know finances are a huge stress for her. She’s a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom, and while they did have life insurance, it’s really not enough given the circumstances.

As a way to help their family while still providing a great resource for readers, I’ve brought together a small group of bloggers and put together a pretty amazing benefit sale, which includes the 9 ebooks listed below plus the complete set of Life Your Way printables. The set is worth more than $50, but will be available for just $5 for three days only, starting at midnight ET on Tuesday, 10/2.

One of the most beautiful aspects of “this blogging thing” is the community that surrounds it.  You!  Blogging has made my world bigger and smaller all at the same time, all for the better.  If you feel led, please join me in helping the Barlow’s today by purchasing an ebook bundle or donating directly here.

Hug your family!
