Blogs to Watch

I thought I'd share with you some blogs that I love to read. These are my inspirational blogs - or ones that get me really thinking.

Confessional of a CF Husband I think many of you are aware of this blog. Nathan blogs about his life with his wife Tricia who has Cystic Fibrosis. This past year has been an amazing one for them. Tricia became pregnant in the fall just as she was beginning her PT to prepare for a double lung transplant. They were told that there was a VERY good chance that Tricia, the baby, or both would die through the pregnancy. They decided to go forward. They now have a beautiful baby girl, Tricia has had a double lung transplant, but now they are facing cancer in Tricia's lungs. They are an amazing couple who love and praise the Lord through everything they do.

Leslie's Journey My best friend growing up has two little brothers. (little - they are both in their late 20's early 30's by now!!) One of them, Tyson, and his wife, Leslie, are going through a really hard time right now. Leslie went in to have some minor surgery to remove a cyst from her nose in October. They then discovered cancer - more surgeries - then infection set into her forehead - had to have the bone in her forehead removed - and then just as she was recovering from all of that - they found out that the cancer has spread. She has been told that she will be lucky to see Christmas. They have a little boy (2ish, I think). Through all of this, they are still giving all the glory to God. I'm amazed at what a Godly man Tyson has grown up to be. Please go visit them, and add them to your prayer list.

L2ashbash Ashlee absolutely amazes me. You will read her blog and wonder what you have done with your life. Ashlee is 21 years old and is living in Guatemala working specifically with gang members in the Limonada. She is there - in the trenches - and is seeing the most horrific things that humans can do to each other. She's also witnessing a real movement that God is doing through her. The number of people who have come to Christ because of her work is incredible. (and I'm not sure how I found her - Kerry - I think it was through one of your posts like a year ago - maybe?)

A Life Outside the Box "ManyBlessings" blogs about her wonderful family which includes 5 children at home and 2 in Guatemala. If you don't like "real" blogs, and only want to read fluff, then don't bother with this blog. She tells it like it is, and I LOVE that about her!!! Lately she has been blogging about what it's really like to adopt an older child. I'm really enjoying the insight.

MizFit The Queen of the MizFits is a former personal trainer, and her blog is designed to motivate all of us to become the best person that we can be - which includes exercise and eating right. Although I can't officially consider myself to be a MizFit yet (as I'm still not listening to what she says!!), I do LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her writing style. It cracks me up. If you are looking for a little inspiration to get your butt in gear, check it out.
