Tidbits of News

Hi Friends,

It's been a busy week mostly away from my computer, so this week I'd like to share with you some tidbits of news in case you missed any of it. So, here ya go:

1) My interview with Focus on the Family about infertility and miscarriage aired this week on Monday and Tuesday. Lots of encouraging emails have come in from listeners who were impacted by the segments. Yay, God! Here's the link to Focus broadcasts in case you missed it: http://www.focusonthefamily.com/radio.aspx

2) My "Childless on Mother's Day" story went live today on the new HELD blog from Hannah's Prayer Ministries. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/mlTbXr Thought from that story: God has not abandoned you, even when prayers go unanswered and hopes seem crushed. Instead He's asking you, "Am I enough? Even now, even in these difficult circumstances. Do you still love me when all seems wrong?"

3) Jayna, Joelle, Bethany, and I had a great time riding in the Salinas Valley Fair (in King City) gymkhana show this week. Jayna won high point in the 6 and under division, and the rest of us won ribbons and also had LOTS of fun in the show, then at the fair too. Below are some pictures:

Me taking off around the third barrel in cloverleaf barrels, ready for the all-out run home!

Bethany and Rusty ran like the wind!

Beautiful form for Joelle! She had her fastest runs ever.
