Immeasurably More

More Hope, More Joy . . . Embracing Life with Down Syndrome

About Linda August 19, 2012

Welcome to my blog for Immeasurably More! I have been blessed to be Rick’s wife for 32 years. Together we’ve enjoyed the ups and downs of married life and rearing kids. We’ve been given the gift of three children and our family continues to grow with weddings! Our children, Zach, Ben & Caroline,  Kassi & Stephen are a great source of joy! We have always lived in the beautiful Mitten State (it’s easy holding up your and and pointing to where you live! ) and thoroughly love the beautiful Lake Michigan shore!

I have been involved in Moms In Prayer International ministry for 24 years. Moms In Prayer has been a life changer for me.  I learned how to pray aloud and cry out to God for the lives of my children as I gathered with other women to pray for an hour each week to pray for our children and schools. I am currently serving as the Special Needs Liaison for the USA.  If you would like more information about Moms In Prayer, check out http://www.momsinprayer.org and/or connect with me anytime at specialneeds@momsinprayer.org

My desire is to encourage and give hope to other families who are on similar journey in rearing a child with Down syndrome or other special needs. I believe every life is precious and created in God’s image, and God has a purpose and plan for each one.  Jeremiah 29:11
