Never Ever Give Up book review

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book to review!  When 11 year old Jessie was diagnosed with a brain tumor she was challenged to Never Ever Give Up Jessie's Story of hope courage and compassion was a fulfilling read. I could only hope that I would be able to face such fear and turmoil that cancer can cause with such grace and selflessness. Jessie takes her family on a journey of spreading hope and smiles to others through her joy jars. To read about someone finding their purpose and passion and making it happen in the midst of struggles is truly inspiring! I recommend this book to anyone who is struggling in their current life, who is longing for direction. God truly has a plan for each of us the question is will we go for it. Will we take the "bad" in life and use it for his glory and see his blessings flow. I loved the honesty of how awful cancer is and how horrific it is to watch anyone suffer through it especially a child. Most of all I loved that a family would share their story and offer such hope to others. To honor Jesse and her dreams Joy Jars are still be handed out all over the country.
    I am planning a Joy jar party at the end of September with the help of my amazing niece in honor of Childhood Cancer awareness month and the 6 yr anniversary of her diagnoses. If you are interested in learning more about Joy Jars and the type of items we may need click on the following link

Baby Cameron

I would love to introduce you to a sweet little boy I feel in love with before he was even born. From the moment my sister in law told me she was having a baby to the day he was born I could not wait to meet him! He arived a few days early on April 8 and I was so excited to meet him and take a few pictures. He may be annoyed when he is older but I could not resists the chance to take a few Timbers pictures as I loving called him baby Darlington after my favorite soccer player!  

On Easter sunday who doesn't  do a mini photo shoot? :) Just look at that face!!!

Doug and Molly thank you for letting me take a few pictures of Cameron!
