Life-Changing Night

If you know my family well, you probably have heard about the frightful night in April 2007.....the night I carried my 2 babies out of our burning home in their footed pj's. Anyhoo....I ran across these photos yesterday, and I decided to share them. Very few people have actually seen them because they have always brought back awful memories. However, I can stand before you and say that God protects, restores, heals, and provides. This is the front of our house the week after the fire.
Our dining room.

Thank you God for teaching us in this way!
This life-changing night was a true gift from God.
We now have a new view of "stuff".
Thank you to all of our friends who prayed for us, cried with us, and just listened.
Would you like to see the "after" pictures?


  1. How did the fire happen? Sorry, I don't know the story. How long did it take you to find a new home?

    Yes, let's see the after pictures and all you're creative talent with your thrifty finds. :)

  2. It was caused by a creative squirrel and a hot fire in our fireplace. It took 3+ months for them to rebuild our home.

    I will have to post some "after" photos soon.

    Thanks for asking!
