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

Relishing in my girls...
Unplugging, snuggling and stealing as many hugs and kisses as they will let me. Cherish your babies #sharedachinghearts #inlightofeternity

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

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?"

#tbt to this day that i SO wish I could go back to. Summer of 2015 in Irvine. We just lost my brother Donnovhan and as devastated as I was, Kara (and Robbie) always tried to make mommy smile. She is and will always be my hero. #bekarageous #jesuslovesthishotmess

Trucker asked me "Dad can we go outside and get some fresh air?" I said "of course we can buddy!" Trucker then said "Dad it's too bright, I think I need my sunnies"😎❤️ He was able to stay outside for about 5 minutes. Every day if we can have some adventure, something that he looks forward to, we will do it to brighten his day. #cancersucks #inlightofeternity #lovebeatscancer #fatherslove #Godsbeautifulcreation

If you haven't read or heard much of Leonard Ravenhill please do so. He's a man who steps on your toes, and for your own good. His ministry was one of prayer and intercession, and his call for revival was not one of emotion but one for souls to come to faith. His book #inlightofeternity is a great read and encouragement. #leonardravenhill #ravenhill


#tbt to Kara Monster and Uncle Vhan goofing around in my kitchen. It's been a rough couple of days. I wonder if it's FINALLY hitting me. These two are living it up in heaven, pain and worry free as we carry burdens below. (Big sigh) Lord Jesus, if this pain is a reminder of your goodness and sacrifice, then I will gladly accept it.
Not only that, but I will rejoice in my suffering because #suffering produces #endurance, and endurance produces #character, and character produces #hope. and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Romans 5:3-5)

NAHUM 1:3-8 || ESV

3 The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty.
His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.
4 He rebukes the sea and makes it dry; he dries up all the rivers;
Bashan and Carmel wither; the bloom of Lebanon withers.
5 The mountains quake before him; the hills melt;
the earth heaves before him, the world and all who dwell in it.
6 Who can stand before his indignation? Who can endure the heat of his anger?
His wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken into pieces by him.
7 The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.
8 But with an overflowing flood
he will make a complete end of the adversaries, and will pursue his enemies into darkness.

#tbt to this one sweet summer day when we had a playdate with Kara's best buddy, brothers and aunt. Hanging out with @mayra66 Julian was ALWAYS on Kara's to do list. We were in between hospital stays and spent the early morning with @spectatorb and friends, then followed with water play! There are times where I feel like I can't or shouldn't go to certain places that remind me of Kara. CHOC hospital, church, beth's ranch, Dr. Ruth's office, tita badets house. I think to myself "you're going to get too depressed and drag people down." I fight those demons pretty regularly. The demons that whisper, "you're not doing well", or "stay away from people [who love you]", or "your daughter is dead, why would you want to go back to choc?" The devil is a liar. Good thing God loves me so much to dispatch angels to fight these spiritual battles for me because so far, those places I've tried to convince myself to avoid have brought me much comfort and peace. #adayatatime #thankyouJesus #yourloveisneverending

So something crazy amazing happened today 💍 I'm overwhelmed with joy and love.
I said "Yes" to the man of my dreams. The one God specifically created for me. This is only the beginning to our forever together with Jesus. And I'm grateful for everyone who's been pouring into us and loving us and supporting us. I can't wait to see where God takes us and how He grows us together. 💕 •

There's a scene in Facing the Giants when the husband asks the wife, "Even if God doesn't give us a child, is He enough?" The wife looks at him, unsure of her answer.
After she struggles with her flesh, though, she gets there. God is enough no matter what.

This song reminds me of that scene. "EVEN if you don't, my hope is You alone." https://youtu.be/B6fA35Ved-Y

Maybe your life hasn't turned out how you wanted or how you planned. The question is...Is He enough anyway?

▫️ P S A L M  2 5 :  1 -  1 0 ▫

1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me.
3 Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
4 Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.
5 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
6 Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!
8 Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
9 He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.
10 All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
