Prayer Update 13

Long, long ago, in a place not so far from here, I offered you prayer updates for wonderful people who very much needed your prayers. However, in the weeks and then months that followed, I grew distracted with other things, and wrote other posts, and the prayer list began to gather dust. It wasn’t that I stopped praying for anyone …

And for some reason most of them have, at some point, rubbed me the wrong way. I don’t know exactly what the problem is. I don’t know why …

Introducing the Prayer Page

I hate cancer. Perhaps that’s not a huge surprise, but it’s true. And as such, I want to do everything in my power to destroy it. To that end, I would like to introduce you to a new page on Life Springs: The Prayer Page. Here you will find people who are in the process of overcoming illness and disease, …

A Special Announcement

In the winter of 2013 I found my health in a steep, desperate decline. The longer and more rapidly it spiraled out of control the more obvious it became that something was very wrong. Finally, in early January, I was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We began chemo therapy and were told there was roughly a 50% chance that …
