Welcome to my new BLOG!

Thanks so much for stopping by! This blog is a new venture for me, and I hope it will be a great way to keep in touch. There is a lot of amazing grace coming my way, and I want to give God the glory...He has faithfully led me through the hardest year of my life.

This blog will keep you updated on the triumphs and the tears, and will be a way for me to share with all of you the news about my career, my kids, my life!

Many of you know the story...last October, while running with me in the Chicago Marathon, my beloved husband Chad collapsed and died. I still sometimes cannot believe that...how can that have happened, and how can this be my life? We were sooooo happy...we had such a great marriage...and we were enjoying a season of true goodness in our lives.

And, then, the unthinkable happened...and the kids and I have HAD to go on, even when we did not know how to...even when we did not want to.

Just before Chad died, I had released my first solo album. We had worked so hard for it, on it and with it...and we were so delighted by it. It was to be the foundation of our marriage ministry. Well, that ministry ended when my husband died...BUT, in the Lord's own mysterious way, He has opened up a whole new ministry for me, and is setting the path before me to sing and speak for him in a whole new way, with a whole new message.

The next few posts of this blog will bring you up to date on what is going on now with my ministry. Stay tuned for some truly amazing graces...and some wonderful pictures as we journey through!

Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for sharing your blog address with everyone. :)
I think of you often (sometimes daily, especially when I look at Rebecca) and I pray you are all covered in spirits of comfort, peace, and strength. ((HUGS))
I think of Chad everytime I see a Police car or look back on the day he had to come to our house.
I love working with Abbi when she is a classroom helper with me, she can be such a mature young lady. :)

I can not wait to hear your new CD!

Blessings,
Alison
