Two years ago today, I lost my sweet friend, Manda.
For those of you who are new around here, Manda was one of my very best friends. Two years ago today, after her third time battling cancer, she met Jesus face to face…at only 35 years old and leaving behind a husband and two precious kiddos.
So many of you prayed for her as she battled cancer, donated to her family’s Go Fund Me page, bought t-shirts, supported the charity created in her honor and so much more. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Please keep praying for her family…especially for her sweet parents. This, of course, has been so hard on everyone, but it’s been extremely hard on her mom and dad.
If you want to be really blessed today…you should watch her celebration of life service HERE. I’m telling you…YOU WILL BE BLESSED BY IT. It was such an amazing service, full of determination, hope, joy and love that can only come from having a personal relationship with Christ. It is inspiring. I watched it on Thursday afternoon for like the 15th time and bawled my eyes out. It’s amazing and wonderful and you should watch it.
You can also watch the video tribute that includes Manda herself sharing the gospel of Jesus HERE and the slideshow presentation that was shown at her visitation and before and after her celebration of life service HERE.
For the last two years, I have proudly sat on the board of The Manda Strong Foundation where we help mamas with cancer here in Collin County create special memories and moments with their families. If you would like to learn more about our foundation, please visit our website HERE. If you’re local and are or know a mom with cancer, you can nominate them on our site as well. It has been such a blessing getting to pray for and love on these mamas so bravely battling cancer.
Two years without her, but two years closer to seeing her again one day.
