Little Flowers Family Press Destroyed by Fire

My friends it is with a heavy heart beyond words, I share that we lost our home, our business, our entire livelihood last Friday (July 19th 2013) with a fire.

We barely got out with our lives. Just 45 min later our entire house was done. We are thankful God found reason to spare us and our 4 boys, three with autism. The devil was mighty upset for our work i guess.

I’m hope you don’t mind my posting this and asking for your prayers and support. We had no insurance and rebuilding our lives will be a huge job. Rebuilding ‘Little Flowers Family Press’ will be an even larger job. But, if God wills it, this won’t be the last from us.

As we try to make sense of our life, we cling to God, who is our ‘all’ now that all our earthly possessions have been stripped away. In His mercy, He has saved us from destruction, for a purpose.

Below are local news stories and information on a trust fund and fundraising efforts for us.

Please share as you are able. Thank you all for listening. I love you all.

    I just saw this news. I’m horrified! I bought your book “Immodesty: Satan’s Virtue” years ago and it’s, in my humble opinion, the BEST book out there on the subject.
    Hope and pray you are able to rebuild. Thank God for sparing your lives.
