Four years ago, after my husband's stage 4 cancer diagnosis, I maintained a stoic front. In my heart, I believed God and took Him at His word. I knew He cared about what was happening to my husband. To me. That He was still available, able, and in control of every aspect of our lives. But wanted, needed something personal. Something from Him to show me that even though I didn't see it, He was still working, still moving on our behalf.


I got in the car to go to lunch with a group of Bible study friends. As I pulled into the parking lot of the restaurant, I again asked God for something personal. To let me know He was with me. But a mental check of His goodness, His presence throughout the Old and New Testament brought no startling revelation or singular peace.

Walking into the restaurant, beyond frustrated, I took a deep breath and exhaled. That's when it hit me hard enough to jolt my brain.

My breath!

My first breath was proof of life! Not just my life. Proof of God's existence! Proof of His personal love for me. For each of us. His breath gives us life. He created us for His purposes. Our lives were, are, and forevermore will be personal to Him.

That afternoon, in an effort to capture what God showed me, I penned the first words to A Snowflake's Adventure.

...four years later, my husband is living with cancer and doing well.

A Snowflake's Adventure is a story of God's personal love. To my husband. To me. To every child He's ever created. Unique. Purposeful. We are His one-of-a-kind design. Each. And. Every. One.
