I love Jesus more than life, and I mean that. I have been entrusted by God with an amazing family. A husband who I am madly in love with and our three kids! My main goal in raising them is that they will grow to know Jesus, love Him and care about the burdens of His heart.

The Lord sustains all who fall

Psalm 145:14-21
The Lord sustains all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in all His ways and kind in all His deeds. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and save them. The Lord keeps all who love Him but all the wicked He will destroy. My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord and all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.

First I would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love on our family. It has truly been awesome to see how many lives and hearts Scott has touched or impacted. I want you to know that if you were a part of Scott’s life, you have been prayed for by him. Whether you worked with him, or simply ate at the restaurant… You have been covered in prayer. Our purpose statement for the Attic was that people would sense the presence of God and encounter more than just another meal. That has also been the purpose statement of our lives.

The bible says that eternal life is in knowing the one true God and Jesus who he sent. In the midst of confusion and pain, I KNOW that Scott KNEW Jesus and is now with Him. That gives me great comfort. Scott knew Jesus more than being a regular church attendee and more than wearing a cross or having a fish logo on something. You can tell a tree by its fruit and by Scott’s fruit everyone knew that He really knew Jesus and walked with him. No one is perfect and God knows it is impossible for us to be on our own. Our heart condition has to be one that is listening and leaning into God. Scott had a very tender heart towards God and others. It would be his prayer that through his death those who know Jesus would press in and go deeper and for those of you who don’t know Jesus, who have already been prayed over by Scott, that this would be a defining moment in your spiritual journey. If you are in a place where you don’t even know what you believe about God or if there is a God, there is an illustration that has helped many. We can’t see the wind, but we can see the effects of the wind. The effects of God’s handprints have covered over Scott’s life.

I can’t explain or understand all of God’s timings, but I can say that in the midst of any circumstance, HE IS GOOD. I pray that as you hear from Scott’s heart that yours is stirred. Please see the video at the bottom of the blog. If you have any questions, I'd love to help you on your journey!
