Need a little help!!!

Saturday, January 24, 2015



A writing sample from her 1st grade “star student” week.

Ive asked for help on my personal Facebook page and wanted to put it out here to our sweet, supportive blog friends as well…..I need a little help with a project Im working on.  🙂

This coming week, we celebrate Evie’s 7 year “heart-iversary” and this momma has an idea.  A little visual for her.  A world map identifying all the places where people were praying for her along her heart journey.

So, if you remember…… maybe you were a recipient of this first email……or followed our blog early on her heart journey through the many tests and procedures…..or have come alongside us on this path……IF YOU HAVE PRAYED FOR OUR GIRL somewhere along the way, can I ask something of you?  Would you kindly leave a comment with your name, city, state and country?   Excited for Evie to have this little keepsake showing her the love and support that has been showered over her her whole life.

There is no greater joy than seeing this child living in a knowledge of Gods great care for her.


circa 2012 (Evie coined this pose before Taylor made it cliché! 🙂



Awed by all those who have loved and prayed for her!  THANK YOU!

    i prayed for little Evie while I was living in Edinburgh, Scotland and now I pray for your family from Fort Lauderdale, FL. Also, when you go on your Disney cruise this summer, where are you leaving from? It wouldn’t be anywhere near here would it? It would be so fun to see you after all these years.

    Dear Evie, We have followed your blog from the very moment we heard how sick you were. For many years our families have been connected. We prayed that you would heal and run and play and you have. We live in Maine which is a long way from where you are. But maybe someday we can visit. Your great grammie and my mom were best friends when they were little girls. Now they are together again in heaven with God. We all love you very much Evie. Pat and “Your Maine Family”

  • Peggy Melzer says:

    I knew 2 other “heart babies” that I was praying for and I was following their blogs when I found this blog. Evie was about 2-3 years old at the time. I started praying for her and your whole family and I still pray for her and all the “heart babies” and their families. I pray that Evie will be able to enjoy a healthy, happy and holy life.
