Little man asked to go for a car ride today. It was his first trip out of the house since early January. It was short lived. He got super lethargic and started feeling junk, but it was worth it to get out of the house. Too many tears have fallen at home this last week. Trucker and his siblings needed some fresh air and beautiful scenery. The big kiddos watched the perfect surf and Trucker snuggled mom and dad. So lucky we live Maui. #Ho'okipa always does something to the soul. We stayed 5 minutes then drove home. Something changed. There was a little more peace in the van on the way home and a few less tears. #inlightofeternity #soulofmaui #Godsbeautifulcreation #teamtrucker

When @mauimammadukes says "let's get tattoos" and we all jump on the idea! Thank you @nanoartbus for coming to us. #inlightofeternity #truckertough #sharedachinghearts #sorrymom

I’ve had this beauty for the past two years and yet I'm still asked weekly, “Since when did you get a tattoo?” I feel like I don’t do a stellar job of explaining how meaningful it is to me, so to those who have asked, this is its story. The cross intertwines with two hearts representing that the self-sacrificing love of my Savior has graced me the ability to passionately love Him. "In Light of Eternity" is a healthy reminder of the promise God made to gift eternity with Him if I so choose to follow. I've made a decision to follow, but I don't always exemplify it. Being human, on the daily my flesh is unceasing in wanting me to be bitter, angry, self-promoting, etc…but the words “In Light of Eternity” refocus my mind on what truly matters. It reminds me to think “In Light of Eternity”, does how I’m acting, the way I’m thinking, and the way I’m speaking emulate the heart of Christ’s relentless love and bring furtherance to the kingdom of God, or not. 
As Lecrae would say--"If you didn't know Him would ya life look the same Can they tell you value Jesus by the way you rep His name?"

“He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names. Great is our [majestic and mighty] Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is inexhaustible [infinite, boundless].”
‭‭- PSALM‬ ‭147:4-5‬ (‭AMP‬‬) The thought of everything I perceive to be infinite fitting into the palm of God's hands is mind blowing to me. I like to look up at the stars because it reminds me of how minuscule I am in the midst of creation. But even more mind blowing than that is the thought that even in my state of nothingness in comparison to the universe, God loves me. He has chosen me and appointed me, but I can never forget just how infinitely big He is. #angelrosetattoo #theuniverse #inlightofeternity #psalm147 #infinite

It's been a day since you obeyed Jesus' command to come home. We're left here on earth with pain and that is OK because this life, this suffering is SO brief compared to #eternity in Paradise. Thank you Kara for all that you've taught us. If I can ask for one more favor, please...ask Papa God to hold your brother Robbie tightly. Ask Him for comfort and peace, and the same understanding your dad and I have knowing that you are FREE! He misses you so much. I know rob puts on a face that everything is alright because that's what older siblings do...but i feel his hurt, I see his sorrow, and I know only the Lord can give him what he so desperately needs. We love you Kara...our warrior princess. 🙏🕇🎗💜💛 #liveingoodness #inlightofeternity #bekarageous #siblingbond

You have allowed me to suffer much hardship, but you will restore me to life again and lift me up from the depths of the earth. Psalm 71:20 NLT

💔💔💔For a little boy and family I've never even met, their journey has changed my life🙏🏻🙏🏻 and will forever be in my thoughts. I am beyond grateful to you all for sharing the last 2 years with the world

Fly high sweet angel, no more pain👼🏻👼🏻. #lovebeatscancer #fcancer #inlightofeternity

The love of a brother runs deep. The bonds formed growing up together grow all the way down to the root of lifelong friendship. The older brother taking the younger brother by the hand and ushering him into what this world has to offer, sometimes adventure and sometimes adversity. Through it all they remain close with togetherness, not always on the same page, but held together with the binding of being in the same book. Sometimes pages of that story are torn out and a brother can be lost not knowing what comes next in the story. A new chapter has to be written. The chapter feels a lot like putting together a puzzle with some of the pieces lost or playing a game of solitaire without all the cards. It doesn't make sense, but with time, if you look deep into the story you're writing, behind the adventures, beneath the colors, quietly underneath the sounds, you can see the lost pages, find direction and continue on with the legend of brotherhood because you realize your brother is not gone but you are carrying him with you. #brotherhood #LoveBeatsCancer #TruckerRidesWithUs #NeverForgotten #InLightOfEternity

Yesterday I leaned over a precious, frail 3 year old and covered him gently in kisses. Tears exploded out of my eyes as I told him 'auntie loves you and I can't wait to see you again soon.' I whispered in his ear 'can I still be your girlfriend?' He weakly nodded yes. And my heart broke in a million pieces. The last two weeks have been so surreal. And today we left for home - back to our "healthy - happy" life. Leaving behind a precious family who in less than a week will likely say goodbye to there baby boy as he is healed in heaven. On the plane I couldn't let go of Josh's hand. I felt so overcome with emotions as I realized Kicker is totally done with chemo (as of February 6th) and yet I just watched cancer strip the life out of a precious baby boy named Trucker. My heart is so totally wrecked. I have never hated cancer so much. I want to celebrate the incredible outcome of my own son and his health, but I desperately long for my dear friend Shauna's baby to be healed here on earth. My words are few as my mind and my heart are overwhelmed and broken. Please pray for Trucker and his family in his last days. Kicker said to me today "but mommy I like Trucker, I don't want him to die from cancer. Why didn't I die from cancer." How do you answer that? I just have to remember that #inlightofeternity we will all be together again. And sweet Trucker, auntie can't wait to cover you in a million kisses again! @trucker_boy_dukes @mauimammadukes

I am so incredibly blessed to know these 3 amazing women. There have been way too many laughs to count and college has been amazing so far because them.

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite persons ever!! 🎂🎁🎉🎈Kaeo, you are truly more than just a friend. You are the older brother that I've always wanted and I'm so blessed to have you in my life. Doing ministry with you has been a dream and I'm stoked to continue doing ministry with you in the years to come!! #unashamedhawaii #inlightofeternity #brotherfromanothermother #blessed

Donnovan Zach aka #balloonboy chillin' with the stuffed animals in Kara's room. Since Kara died, he has not touched any of her toys. When she was here, he took every opportunity to grab, play and throw her stuff. He was always so curious about her prized display. Now, when her door is open, he goes straight for these guys, lays and loves on them. Kara used to nap on the bear's leg and I have a feeling he will do the same when he's a little older.

HEAVY TOPIC...I am a sister to young girls, a leader to high school students struggling in a tough world, and I am often unaware of the rapidly changing culture which surrounds me. Culture Translator is awesome and critical in my awareness! It helps me gain weekly insight into how pop culture, technology, and media are influencing our students (children). To be naive in this department is a great disservice to our families, friends, communities, etc. I know it's tough to "keep up with the times" when our technological advancements have created a world that makes influences (be they negative or positive) instantaneous, but we must fight for awareness so we can be influential for the good in the lives of those God's entrusted to us.
If you'd like The Culture Translator. Just search it. It only requires a name and email.
P.S. I have no idea what each letters content will share in the future but be sure to not merely read these emails but dig deeper and find the facts. :) Then pray about how you can use that knowledge to encourage those around you.

Much needed #qualitytime with my beloved. Praise God for opportunities like this. #mercyme singing one of Karas favorite songs. I don't know this for certain, but something tells me you danced for Jesus when you met Him. Miss you Kara bear. Our world is alot less musical with you gone but I know Heaven just got louder! #bekarageous #liveinGodsgoodness #icanonlyimagine #inlightofeternity

The light at the end of the tunnel..... I see it. But the light is NOT a test result, no. For the NEXT test result already haunts me and it's still 2 months from now. I see it, the light, but the light does not reside in the words of a physician....no. I find the light in His word. Hope. Trust. Faith. It all calls to me. It may sound crazy, but when you are on your knees begging and screaming and then in the next breath being able to find the JOY and God's love surrounding you.....oh so good!!! Don't lose Faith, search for it. He is waiting to comfort, hold, and guide. I can not speak as someone who has lost a child, but merely as a friend who has watched 4 mothers endure that heartache this year and all I can say is....God is good. Nothing, nothing, but God can carry someone through that fierce penetrating darkness. Those families, those mommies, and those #angels are my #heroes. Find the JOY. Find the light. Let Him carry you.
