What else is new with us? Well... very EXCITING news, we're taking a trip to Florida this September! Me and "my story" were chosen to go to a national insurance conference, where agents from ins. companies all over the country will come to be more informed on the importance of different types of insurance (can I say that word just one more time please?) Four families were chosen from across the country and a representative from each will speak to the agents on the last night! I don't know if they know what they're getting themselves into having chosen me as one of the speakers! ha ha, but I know God, like he did Vegas, will use this to magnify who He is and to help others, I'm excited.
And as well as going to the conference Newsweek magazine is doing an editorial on each of the four families attending! We had our photo shoot for that yesterday, and boy is it stinkin hard to get two children to cooperate at the same time. The photographer was so sweet and hung out with us the day before where he commented on how well behaved the boys were, well... I'm sure he had different feelings after the shoot. ha! We shot at two locations and took a billion pictures so considering all they had to endure they did great! Oh and the newsweek will come out the last week of August or around that time:)
This Monday we film a short video that they will show at the conference, detailing our story, who we are etc. I've already done one for my ins company for Vegas and it is very emotionally draining because you have to relive the accident all over. But the motivation that I am helping others encourages me to stay strong and do my absolute best. Pray for us on monday if you think about it!
We'll be in Florida for the "anniversary" date - 9-15, which is a HUGE blessing because it will be something good to look forward to. Especially because we get to go to Disneyworld! whoohoo! I'm so pumped, Disney anything makes me feel like a kid again and takes the sad out of life, momentarily anyway! My mom, sister and Kristin, Jonathan and Susannah will also come to support me and just have a good time.
I'll end here with the last video we did... sorry it took me this long to share.
