On May 5th Phil Rhodes — my beloved husband and daddy to our three young children ages 9, 8 & 6, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.

Unfortunately due to a liver condition that was diagnosed before he was married, Phil was never able to obtain life insurance.

We appreciate your prayers during this time. If you would like to help ease the financial burden of the funeral, expenses involved in shutting down Phil’s solo law practice and allowing me to provide consistency for our kids during this time of transition, we would be so grateful.

Donations can also be made to the “Phil Rhodes Memorial Fund” and mailed to: Phil Rhodes Memorial Fund, c/o Folsom Lake Bank, 905 Sutter St., Folsom, CA 95630.

OneSky and the Left-Behind Children of China

My heart breaks for the small children of China who are left behind by their migrant parents. I’m sure the parents’ hearts break as well, but China is often a hard place. Life is hard and there are no good answers for many families. Thankfully, OneSky is working hard to make a difference in these children’s lives.  Little Yutong is important to someone and we pray that through OneSky she and other lonely children like her will find joy again. Watch her story here:  Yutong’s Story
