Trying to Spread the Message of Hope...Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome newcomers to my blog!  I’m participating in the 2011 Ultimate Blog Party in order to spread the message of hope and encouragement to those who are seeking it.  

My latest post, How a Horse Named Hero Changed My Lifewhich has received the most comments I have ever had on one post, is a good example of what I write about here.  I am a homeschooling mom and survivor of leukemia (twice) who had a bone marrow transplant in 2009.  It has been a long recovery process over the last two years, and my husband and I blogged about the whole thing, even in the darkest hours when it looked like I wouldn't make it.  We offer encouragement and support for those who are suffering.

Comment below if you found the blog through the Ultimate Blog Party and thanks for visiting!

Wow, Krista--what an amazing miracle you are! Just stopping by your blog was a real blessing to me. I love the header photo of you and your family with "hope" written in the sand. What an inspiration.

I'd love it if you'd stop by my blog, Cindy's Book Club:

Thanks, Cindy! I did stop by and visited your great book review blog! So cool to find a fellow booklover and I'm already adding a couple new titles to my summer book reading list thanks to you.
