One year ago at this time we were at the hospital with Lynzi, where she spent 2 weeks recovering from a ruptured appendix as well as another 2 months out of school very sick and recovering from infection. This past year she has experienced challenges in recovery, but she has grown like a weed and today stands as strong as ever! Laci and I thank God for his hand on her life and look forward to a productive year of doing good for the glory of God!

Here is a quick look back at our 2014:
