Would you please pray for this precious little girl?

UPDATE: Anna Beth is out of surgery & all is well. Things were more complicated than they predicted, but she will recover with a healthy heart! We see that God has protected her all of these years and are full of gratitude for that & and for your prayers.



This is my darling niece, Anna Beth. And she sure could use your prayers. On Friday she will be having heart surgery.

Anna Beth is my sister’s youngest daughter, and she is one little bitty great big bundle of joy! They moved to Colorado last summer and because of the high altitude, it was discovered that a valve in her heart never closed at birth. She will be having surgery at the children’s hospital in Aurora at 8 AM (MST). Anna Beth and her family have the Lord’s Peace over the situation, and feel so grateful that this problem was discovered. However, we sure would covet your prayers; prayers for the doctors, operating room, her siblings as they wait and worry, and especially her parents as they watch their baby girl be rolled into the operating room. If you would join our family on this front, we would be ever so grateful! I will hop on and give an update after the surgery.

And as long as I’m asking, would you please pray for me too? I am speaking at a ladies event on Saturday and am asking God to speak through me and send forth His Word to revive and heal hearts as He calls His own to a deeper intimacy with Him. 🙂

Thank you so much for lifting up my family and me. I pray so often for you ~ The Lord keeps you on my mind. Many blessings of the Lord to you, my friends~
