Geno is the cutest of two-year-olds…the cutest!
What’s not so cute is – Geno was just diagnosed with stage 3 liver cancer.
That stinks. That really stinks.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of connecting with Geno’s mom. Come to find out Geno starts chemotherapy this Wednesday – and his mom does not have a car to drive him for his treatments which are over an hour from his home.
This is where the power of us comes in!
Instead of saying, “Oh that’s so sad!” (Like I often do!) Let’s do something. Together, we can financially partner with this family and help carry some of their heavy load. Let’s make a difference in the life of Geno… through the power of us!
If you feel that tugging and want to partner together to make a difference in Geno’s life, you can give a secure, tax-deductible financial donation by clicking on Donate at the bottom of each page on JosephsJoy.org.
OR if you have a reliable car that you are interested in donating directly to the family please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Together, let’s show Geno and his family that God loves them and his life matters!
Let’s do this!

Well guys…it’s almost here! Jon and I have a date for the release of Joseph’s Joy: Living With Unstoppable Hope. Drum role please. May 4, 2015. I exhale with a sigh of relief while my heart simultaneously explodes with joy.
I began writing Joseph’s Joy in the months following Joseph’s death just over three years ago. My intention for writing about the events that took place throughout the course of Joseph’s battle was simply to share about the goodness of God to us – even in the midst of this tragedy. God never left us. He was so near and good. My primary motivation was that I wanted Joseph’s younger brother, Josiah, to know the truth about what happened since he was only three years old when Joseph passed away. The boys were the best of friends and only fourteen months apart. I wanted to be able to explain things to him later. Not wanting to forget the details myself, I also wanted Josiah to know about all of the miracles we encountered along the way. So…I started writing one tearful sentence at at time.
As I recalled everything that happened and put words to our experiences, I heard the Holy Spirit whisper to my heart, “This is not just for you.” Intrinsically I knew that our story was meant to be shared. As a complete novice in writing a book, I transformed my journal writings into chapter titles. One chapter at a time our story came to life! A real-life story that brings unstoppable hope. God truly directed my every word and I am humbled at the powerful message of this book – which has nothing to do with me, but everything to do with how loving God is.
I would like to personally invite you on an intimate journey!
We will be selling Joseph’s Joy: Living With Unstoppable Hope on Amazon.com in kindle and paperback versions in May. ALL proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit our non-profit charity also called, Joseph’s Joy, where we provide hope and financial help to children battling life-threatening illnesses. (Please like our fb page if you have not already.)
How many of you know that you are supposed to write your story? Please share with me.
If I can do it, you can too!
