In 2019, we co-authored a book called You Can Trust God to Write Your Story: Embracing the Mysteries of Providence. It included the stories of many dear friends who shared how a single moment altered the trajectory of their lives, and how they have found God to be faithful in every circumstance and season. In God's providence, on March 8, 2020, we began a new chapter in the story God is writing in our lives, when Robert was diagnosed with melanoma.
We will update this site as we are able, with further details, specific prayer requests, and what we are learning as we navigate this journey. Thank you for walking with us. We definitely have moments of apprehension, especially with all that is taking place in our world at the moment. But we are counseling our hearts with what we know is true: God is good; He is faithful; He is with us; He can be trusted. We say to each other many times a day, "Heaven rules!" That has always been the case and it is no less so now. My Christ be magnified in and through our lives.

We received a call from the doc's office this afternoon with the pathology report. All good news! There was some residual melanoma, all of which the surgeon got. The lymph nodes were negative for melanoma.
We could not be more grateful for His mercy and kindness to us.
We will go back to Grand Rapids next Wed to have the stitches and bandages removed. (My sweet husband was SOO happy to be able to remove his “head cone” bandage today and replace it with a Cubs cap during the day and a bandana to cover his ears at night. He needs to continue sleeping in his recliner until the bandages and stitches are removed.)
The next reconstructive surgery will have to wait till we get past COVID.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement in this journey! We are praying for others we know and love who are still waiting, trusting Him in hard chapters of their story.
“The LORD gives His people strength;
the LORD blesses His people with peace.” (Psalm 29:11)
