But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as Eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Picture by Alton Strupp, The Columbus Republic

Today, the article about me and my sister, Sheila, was in the Columbus Republic.  The Republic ran a special "Pink Purpose" issue of their newspaper a couple of weeks ago, with some awesome, inspiring stories of people fighting breast cancer.  Sheila and I are a part of this Pink Purpose month of their newspaper, and our article appeared on the front page of today's paper.

We did not see the photo or article beforehand, so I was quite eager to see it!  I want to thank Alton Strupp for such a great photo of me and my sister and Andrea Zike, the reporter, for her wonderful article!  Excellent job!

I did run around town rounding up extra copies for my family and friends, but I was careful to leave some at each store....so hopefully you'll go pick up a copy!  :=)  You can also find the article online here 

I also want to thank the Columbus Republic for their month long devotion to the cause of bringing awareness to breast cancer.  I have read and enjoyed each and every story and applaud you for your work in this area.  I know you are helping to save lives by giving people this platform to reach others!

You can find the special Pink Purpose issue and read the other stories at http://www.therepublic.com/view/local_story/Pink_Purpose_2011_special_sect_1317965815/

I am very proud to be a part of this Pink Purpose project.  I'm in a "club" that no one wants to be in, but now that I'm in it, God has given me a mission to help educate and encourage others.  Thank you Columbus Republic, for allowing my sister and I to tell "our stories" and my prayer is that it will help someone out there.

Until next time......let God use you wherever you are or whatever you are going through in life.  Be a willing vessel and He will open up the doors!
