Inspiration for Moms

I am an avid user of Instagram.  I love connecting with people through photographs.

Yesterday, I ran across one of Stephanie Nielson’s Instagram photos.  {If you don’t know who she is watch the video below.}

Anyway, I noticed some of the comments written under her photo.  Many people were referring to her blog post on Tuesday, June 19, 2012.  I made a mental note to go check out her post later.  This morning I woke up thinking about her and reading that post.  Now, after doing a load of laundry, doing a wii dance workout with my youngest, showering, having lunch and making my bed…I was in the middle of making my bed when I was reminded of visiting her site to see what happened.

With tears streaming down my face I share with you this video.  Stephanie is my hero.

I just ordered Heaven Is Here: An Incredible Story of Hope, Triumph, and Everyday Joy and look forward to the spiritual strength Stephanie exudes.

Disclaimer: I am sharing this because Stephanie inspires me, not because she or anyone paid me to write this.  Just to make that clear. 😉

Find every day JOY,


  1. I know how much you admire Stephanie! She is amazing.

  2. Well for me, this is really very important and family is one of the most treasures we have in our life.. Anyway, I just love the video provided here..

    Oh my God, I have tears in my heart…these children are blessed with this parents.

    • Patricia, I’m reading her book right now and it brings tears to my eyes every time I read. I can’t fathom/comprehend how she was able to get through the pain. She has come so far, but still has pain and surgeries. These parents, Stephanie & Christian, come from exemplary families, though. The support of a loving family is crucial in helping during a tragedy such as this one. We can all learn from both the families they came from and from S & C’s family. I highly recommend reading her book Heaven is Here. I am not only learning about her struggle, but find I’m learning more about myself as well.

      Thank you for your dear comment.
