How's Your Son Doing?

We get asked the question, "How's Sawyer doing?" all the time by friends and family.  I thought I'd put this exerpt from a personal letter to me, his mom, on the blog so you could see how he's doing in his own words.  I want to thank everyone who has and is supporting Sawyer through prayers and letters.

"I love getting emails from Mikella, Joe, and Gabe!!! I MISS YOU GUYS SSSSOOOO MUCH!!!!! But I know I’m supposed to be here and I love it. I’m not homesick, I just think about you guys a lot. I miss coming home and seeing y’all and I REALLY miss our little late night talks. I’ve learned to talk to my Heavenly Father instead. Prayer is an amazing gift. I have received answers right then and there when I pray about them. God does answer prayers and we must have faith in him to do so.

"These past 5 months have been the hardest of my life. They have also been the most spiritual growth I have ever had. I hate to admit it but it has. Only because God cut me down to my knees and made me nothing. I must submit to the father’s will. Peace, I’ve found, is a gift of the spirit, your right, it’s something we work towards. I’m not there yet, I’m still having a very difficult time.... but I have hope and faith that, one day, whether in this life or the next, it will come.

"I love and miss you Mommy. Thank you for your prayers. I have been given strength many times and I know it is because of the support of my family and friends back home. I Love You!!!"


  1. He is right. When we feel cut down, that is when we grow more. Good words for everyone to read!

  2. I love you so much Sawyer! It is such a journey to experience. Prayer is key to us getting through. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us <3
