      I have been amazed at the outpouring of prayers and support for Jewel.  When we started kicking around the idea of reaching out to those who care about her, we NEVER expected all the kind words, prayer promises, and financial gifts that we have been blessed with. 
      Here's another thing that we couldn't have dreamed of.  A dear friend of mine has a blog and is hooked up with an amazing soy candle maker.  She is donating $5 of each sale of her special Jewel's Hope collection to our girl.  Check out her site and get yourself some sweet smelling candles.  Here's the link.

Thanks for all of your support.

  1. I am so glad to help in any way I can! :)

  2. Hi,

    I didn't see a contact button, but I hope a comment will do. I noticed you're in Nashville, TN, and I think I know a pretty practical way to help you raise money. I go to Grace Center on Monday nights, in Franklin (I'm in the Belle Meade area, and it's about 20 minutes from me). It's an amazingly generous church, and I'm more than willing to bet they'd take up an offering for you. Go on Sunday morning if you can and talk to Jeff Dollar. I'm praying for you, and I know something amazing will come out of all this. Don't give up hope, God is amazing and is totally using this to bring favor into your family's life :) If you need some extra help, shoot me an email at and I'll see what I can do.


  3. She is an amazing little girl with an amazing story. Thank you for sharing her and her strength with us.
