My name is Elizabeth.  I have a new designation on all school forms and applications.  I am a widow.  It is not a title I ever dreamed of having,  But who would?  I was married 20 years and we had 6 children together.  We have always attended the same church– in fact, it is the same church I grew up in as a child.  I buried my husband in January, 2013, my uncle in February, 2013, and my father in March, 2013.  Those events have changed me forever.  And my children.  We live in Oklahoma City where I try to keep house and raise the children with the help of many wonderful friends and family.  This is the story of our journey, our new experiences, our joys and sorrows, and our trust in God’s faithfulness to get us through.

  1. Thanking God this morning, as I read this, for your example of walking with Him. Thanks for “doing the next thing” even when you don’t feel like it. Others are watching and you’re honoring Him. I love you sweet friend. (And this blog is a WONDERFUL idea.)

  2. It made me happy to see that you are taking the time to chronicle this most difficult journey. I wish I could have crawled out of the hole to do more of this during my darkest days. You are not a super woman but you are a faithful woman who will walk down the path that has been laid out for you. Robin Jones commented to me once in the early years after Kaitie came to live with us that she admired my deliberateness. (going to church, getting dressed, speaking, etc. when you just don’t think you can and you know you don’t want to) Your deliberateness (faithfulness) will be your greatest ally. I can now look back and see all the beauty that God created from the horrible pain. Kaitie is a spectacular testimony of His faithfulness and I would have missed out if I hadn’t kept on keeping on. I am so excited to see how this unfolds for you and the Dyer half dozen. It only took a decade to see it
