There is no greater beginning than the beginning of a life--it's that sacred feeling of a spirit fresh from heaven. Holding a baby in your arms can often draw you into a place that feels closer to God and closer to your own beginning.
I recently learned of a mother who experienced this miracle unexpectedly when her six-year-old daughter underwent life-saving surgery and began life again, only this time as a liver transplant recipient.

Well, you don't have to. You can read about this little girl, Annie, and her family at COTAForAnnieR.com and feel the emotion and learn of their trials and their blessings. This is the beginning of a whole new life for them as they face years of tests, medical bills, and continual doctor appointments. You and I now have the opportunity to help them begin this journey with hope.
This month, on September 30th, there is going to be a benefit concert--an awesome benefit concert at Benaroya Hall--to help raise money for a lifetime of medical expenses. Not only can you help this family, but you can enjoy a wonderful date night too! Come to the concert--I'll be there!
Praiseworthy was created with the hope of opening a window into a world of things that are beautiful, inspiring, and real -- a world where mommies are creative, hopeful, and honest. Here we will write about the little pieces of our lives that might somehow create a link between us and you. The things we like, the things that drive us crazy, the things that we don't really understand--chances are that somewhere, someone else feels the same. In a blogging world, the possibilities really are endless!
