Nick's Foundation Continues to Reach Out

2010 has started out a little slow in energy as far as the foundation goes, but I believe that God has called us to "be still" and "refocus" a bit as we venture into the future.

Tim and I have entered a new chapter in our grief.

Reality sinks in a little more each day and honestly, we have found ourselves drawing nearer and nearer to God and having more moments of simply being quiet.

Last year, I worked on Nick's foundation night and day. I think that for me it was a way of coping with the loss of Nick and all that went with him............24/7 care giving, so many different medicines, never sleeping very deeply, etc. This year I am tired. I find myself falling asleep earlier and sleeping more soundly. I am thankful for that part of life right now, but the pain of losing Nick has intensified as winter has begun changing into spring so I stay in the Word and God's promises for my daily strength.

I am writing today to let you know that even though not many things have been shared about the foundation lately, we do continue to mail out memory boxes when families lost children and deliver baskets when kids are sick. We are still trying to raise the needed funds for the orphanage in India so that they can build their new facility. I speak at ladies' events any time I am asked, because I feel that God has placed in my heart the desire to encourage women in their walk with the Lord.

I just wanted you all to know that we are still here. Reaching out with the love of God to hurting families.

Nick's legacy continues.

I will write more soon.

Much love,
Tammy and Tim


  1. Tammy,

    Our family is continuing to pray for you and yours. I just wanted to let you know that I was at a doctor's appointment the other day and they have some of Nick's books in the doctor's office waiting area. Sitting on the floor was a small child who was completely engrossed in reading one of the books from the shelf. He sat there and read book after book while his Mom was waiting to be seen. I wanted to pass this along to you and I know it will bring a smile to you and your family. =)

  2. Oh, carrie, thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You just made my day!!! :)
