As I was getting ready for work this morning, I was feeling pretty discouraged about my lack of ability to be the right kind of mom to a daughter who is battling severe food allergies.

I had been texting with a friend early this morning and sharing my struggle and she said,

“Maybe we can figure out what to do to make it easier.”


As I read the word, “we” in her text,

I realized I am not allowing God to work in the mighty way He can if I do not ask for help in the places where He might be able to step in and provide just what our family needs.


So, I’m asking for your help this morning.


I need recipes and guidance for a child with allergies to wheat, soy, milk, eggs, peanuts, and pork.


Coming up with creative meals is a challenge for me.


And I’m failing.


I love you all so much, and I know many of you live in places all over the world and might know of resources of which I am not aware.


I feel excited for the first time in a long time just thinking that maybe God has been waiting for this moment.



“Ask and it will be given to


seek and you will find;


knock and the door will be

opened to you.”


Matt. 7:7
