Faith. Culture. Life.
Well said Ben. Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you.On my knees for Chaia and prayers of strength for you and Shaina.Diane Firis
BenI have never met you or your family but I love you all and have been praying for sweet little Chaia. I was questioning my own faith when I stumbled across your blog. Chaia's story has helped me get back on the right path. Your faith is an inspiration. In her short little life so far she has already done great things for our Lord. I pray she has many many more years to do even greater things in His glory.God Bless
Continuing to learn a lot from you my friends. Will fast with you tomorrow and will continue to lift you all up in prayer. Love, Sharon
Our Father, who art in heaven,Hallowed be thy Name.Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our trespasses,As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.
I believe that Jesus is with you like He was Daniel in the fire. Tomorrow I will continue to pray for Chaia and I will fast for her. May God give you strength and comfort.
Love the video. This morning my husband and I were talking about Chaia...a popular topic recently in our house : ) He said, "It is so hard to know what to pray for in this situation." I said, "Just pray that God's will be done." He always has a plan and all we can do is ask for understanding and faith. Your family's faith is a great example for all. We will continue to pray here in Tennessee, and I will fast tomorrow for Chaia.

We are strangers, yet we are so moved by the strength of all 3 of you. Thank you for sharing your testimony that transcends all circumstances. I am sharing it with my high school students and I know that the seeds you're sowing will bring great glory to the kingdom of God. We are praying and fasting with you and want you to know that Chaia, in such a short time, has done more for God's glory than most of us do in a lifetime. May she continue to shine the light upon our Father!
AWESOME sermon, Ben. I haven't been able to be in church lately and find this little vignette on your blog very uplifting and helpful to me. I am soooooo glad I had the privilege of being one of your English teachers at SHS and getting to know you. You are indeed one for the books! Love you guys and praying always for your continued strength and Chaia's health. God bless you all, Anne Fischer
This is Christina, Shaina's cousin. I have been following your story on FB over the past few weeks. Thank you for your transparency and sharing your struggles. I pray for peace over your hearts and that many will come to worship our Creator and see His mercy through this difficulty time. The Lord gives and takes away, blessed be His name. To God be the glory. -Christina Fowler
Dear Ben:Mname is Hector Acosta,and I just heard or read about ur beautiful baby, Chaia,from my pastor in Apopka, Florida, Pastor John Hampton. He has been a blessing to our Journey Christian Church, and without him knowing it,like in your case, very individual,private and glorious changes in our way of looking at "religion"throgout him. Jesus is The Light of the World, and Him we follow. Your baby is now in a lot of people's praying list, GOD BLESS YOU...
Dear Ben: I do not know you or your family, I found your page through Ashley Doss and Courtney Schnee's page on FB. I was drawn to your page after seeing that you had spent some time at Children's Hosp as I am a prev NICU nurse and currently in the Heart Center. Please know that I am praying for your beautiful little baby girl, Chaia, you, and your wife as you go through this trial. Your story has brought tears to my eyes and butterflies in my stomach. Your words and outlook on this situation is truly inspirational and encouraging to all in a relationship with Jesus, no matter where you are. I pray that God will give you understanding, peace, and joy no matter where this path may take you. God bless!April Rush
