Silent Auction

Stephanie and Christian Nielson

My sister-in-laws are hosting a silent auction tonight to benefit Stephanie and Christian Nielson of Mesa, AZ.  Stephanie is the author of the blog,

They are the parents of 4 young children. Last week they were in a plane accident where they sustained severe burns over most of their bodies. They are in the hospital in critical condition and are expected to go through months and years of skin graft surgeries and rehabilitation.

I have come across Stephanie's blog in the past and was always so impressed with her style and love for her children and life. 

We don't know Stephanie and Christian, but we want to help.  The details of their accident can be found here. As of right now, their family is caring for their children during their long road to recovery, which you can read about here.  

My sister-in-law Stephanie Waite is hosting a silent auction on her site for a Kazuri bead necklace. All of the proceeds will go family. Our family was incredibly blessed by strangers in our time of need. We want to help others if we can.  

If you can, please help us bless this family in during this dark time. Most importantly, please remember them in your prayers.

Darren was concerned that I needed a better computer to blog and a bigger monitor so I can look at more blog screens at once. I am certain I will now be capable of responding to emails in a more timely manner. 

I am in love. And so is Darren, don't you think?
