Location: MICHIGAN, United States

Thank you for stopping by. It's my hope you find glimpses of my Savior interwoven thru my writings. I am the wife to one husband for over 25 years, a blessed mama to a dozen children, yes each born from me ~ two of which see Jesus face to face & ten at home, all of us yearning to see Jesus someday. We have been home educating for over 18 years with . . . well, another 15 years to go (the youngest is 3, the oldest 23!) I have walked through rejection, to continually learning I am CALLED, LOVED and forever KEPT by God - never, ever to be rejected by Jesus! (Jude 1:1) I've walked through deep sorrow to find that joy does come again, though the night may be long; I've witnessed God orchestrating miracles with my children still beyond my comprehension, & I am seeing new love forming as we begin a new road of older children finding life mates. My life has and is a journey, from the deepest, almost rock bottom pit, to stumbling through my faith and looking towards the ultimate climax of everlasting life in heaven. Will you be joining me here and there? ~ Loni

(UPDATED) Urgent Prayer Request for Young Girl

This little girl, Candace, age 7, is the sister of a young couple, Patrick & Hannah, who are friends of ours that live in Florida. She is actually Patrick's youngest sister (of a large family). Patrick & Hannah attended our church well over a year shortly after they were married. They are now involved in missions.

Candace is in critical condition. At first they thought she had cancer but ruled this out and have said that is is an aggressive infection called "Gram positive cocci Infection" originating on the bone and spread throughout the soft tissue in her body & is rapidly eating away her bones and muscles. As of 3:00 p.m. today, she was having her 3rd surgery of this week this time to insert an ear tube so that they can place her in an oxygen chamber. They are hoping that that pure oxygen kills the infection. The doctor did tell them today, that "We cannot get to a worse situation that we're in now."

You can visit their webpage updates at: From this page you can also sign their prayer calender to let them know you are praying for them. Please be in prayer for Candace and their family.

URGENT UPDATES: (from their website)

In the Chamber. 2/10/06 11:41 a.m.
As the sun rose this morning I was never so grateful for the opportunity of life. At this very hour Candace is undergoing "hyperbaric-oxygen-therapy". A little while later she will receive yet another life saving surgery than return for her second therapy session. Pray for her on these critical day's and for the antibiotics to take effect.

Surgery a Success. 2/10/06 1:40 a.m.
Candace Joy is safely out of surgery! Candace survived a lengthy emergency surgerythat involved removal of much muscle and tissue through out her pelvic region. God has seen fit to spare her of any amputation and or organ loss. We are grateful for one more daywith our precious child. Continue to pray for her for she will be on a ventilator and receive transfusions plus daily surgerys. God's grace is more than sufficient for us

Emergency Situation Worsens. 2/9/06 9:32 p.m.
Candace is either in or going into right now a Massive Surgery to save her life. A form was just signed givingthe Doctors all rights to take away anything necessary to save her. Please pray that she makes it through the Surgery and without fatal damage.

Massive emergency Surgery. 2/9/06 8:45 p.m.
Details are lacking but we just heard that when Candace was taken out of the Oxygen chamberthat something happened and a drastic surgery is needed right away. Candace is now being wheeled in for some massive emergency operation details coming soon.
