Hello World! Welcome to our blog! I’m Kimberly and I have felt for about a year now that God was leading me towards starting a blog. I can’t explain it. I don’t really read blogs or follow many. I just knew it was something I needed to do.
So what has taken me so long? Well, I wondered if anyone would read it, if I would have enough to write about, and if I was a decent enough writer to make it bearable to read. Last weekend I heard Charles Stanley preach that “God will not lay something on your heart that he has not prepared and equipped you for.” So, here it is ……. my leap of faith! My only other reservation.…… I have to admit……was that I am so nervous. Our family has been fairly private about our struggles and being so raw with anyone and everyone is very scary. But now, I am deciding to face that fear while claiming Psalms 27:1…… “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?”
Now, on to what this blog is all about. The mission is to follow the life of my family as we navigate this world with our son, Cannon. He is 4 years old and Autistic. There….I said it. Many friends of ours knew something was up but not many knew the whole story. This blog will definitely provide you with the whole story. I pray that this will be a place that I can share our struggles, rejoice in our triumphs, and just tell our everyday life stories. I pray that we can keep our friends and family updated on Cannon’s developmental progress and medical condition along with educating them about Autism and the other issues and therapies he endures. I also hope to network with people who have been affected by Autism or any other illnesses or disorders. I want this to be a place where we can all support each other.
So, do me a favor! Subscribe to this blog! Give a girl some confidence to keep it up! And if you know others who might be interested or have similar struggles……pass this info along. I know that God has a plan for this site and I am excited to see what it is. Join us!Laura Story - Blessings
