  2. Brad, I just saw your blog for the first time via a link on facebook. Wow. What a blessing I stumbled upon it. I am a wife (17 yrs) and mom of three incredible kids (ages 13, 11 and 6). I love the title of your blog. Thankful to walk this road and share experiences. God Bless you and your family.
