What Faith Can Do

You might have noticed a new song as you opened this blog today.

It's called What Faith Can Do. The first time I heard it, I thought of Matt & Molly and the journey they have been on for over a year. The words seemed to speak directly to their situation.

So last night, on a complete whim, I decided to change the first song on the blog to this new song... What Faith Can Do.

Then, as if to reassure what I already KNOW Faith Can Do, I got into my car early this morning to take my son to preschool. As I turned on the engine and pulled out of the driveway, the very first thing I heard were these lyrics from What Faith Can Do...

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it's more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know.

Don't you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining!

Was it an odd coincidence?

Maybe. But I like to think it was something more than that!

I wanted to share this story and this song with you as we approach the one week mark... one week until Matt & Molly go to court again.

They are facing the clouds right now and at times I'm certain the ache feels like more than they can take.

Through this blog, I have personally witnessed generosity, that at times, seems to have no limits. I have witnessed people offer prayers, support, and love to the Nagel family... many whom have never even met the Nagels. It truly restores my own faith... to see so many reaching out to help a family in need. That's What Faith Can Do!

So, as the one week mark draws closer, I invite you all to renew your prayer efforts on behalf of the Nagels.

We need to encourage them not to give up now, for with prayer, the sun will soon be shining they will find the silver lining!

Because that's What Faith Can Do!


Look Who's Praying for Waverley....

As I mentioned, the blue prayer bracelets are here and are starting to show up on the wrists of people across the country! If you are one of the many generous donators, your prayer bracelets are on their way!

Matt & Molly know in their hearts that many people are praying for them. But I'd like to continue to encourage them over the course of the next week by SHOWING them how many people are praying for them!

If your are a prayer warrior, please email me ( a picture of you (or your family) waving to Waverley and showing off your prayer bracelets!

As the pictures come in, they will be added to a "Look Who's Praying for Waverley" photo gallery! Let's work together to visibly show the Nagels how many people love them and are praying for them during this difficult week!

If you don't have a bracelet and want one, please email me ASAP!

So, let me me start the
gallery by showing you a few little ones who are...

Praying for Waverley!

Emily & Noah

Who's Next?
