Congratulations AmandaGrace

I know this photo is from Spring, but I love it! And the girl in it. Today marks a very special day for this young woman (I was going to say kid but can't!) Today AmandaGrace made the honor roll. This is the first time she has done that since the eighth grade! I am so proud of her. I knew she could do it. This is also the first time she has ever gotten anything higher than a C in math. Way to go girl!!!

Business Math - 94%

It has been a rough ride over the last three years. There has been much struggle and tears (some from Amanda too). But mostly just a ton of prayers. It's hard to keep your eyes above and remember that God is in control all the time. Every single teacher that has crossed our paths have been hand selected for us. All of the whys and complaints may never be answered but they were all strategically planned by the Lord Himself. We have been in the palm of His hand. And for that we say thank you.

Today it's all about AmandaGrace. 

Tomorrow it's all about Daniel and his IEP. 

But tonight. Tonight it's all about how Great Are You Lord (click  here).


  1. First, that picture is amazing.
    Second, I am just beyond thrilled to read this, well done, Amanda! After all these years of struggle, to see both our girls make honor roll is such a sweet event! All the struggle & tears makes this victory worth so much more.

  2. This is so awesome! That picture of her is so beautiful. She is such an amazing young woman and has worked so hard. She has an incredible mother and a steadfast God, neither of whom has ever given up on her. She is strong in heart and strong in Faith, just like you. Keep up the good work Amanda! Congratulations!
