If you have appreciated the over 1,400 stories that we have published in the last 3.5 years, please consider that the only way those stories could ever have happened apace, is with the long-standing faithful wife of our editor-in-chief who is now in the battle of her life against stage 4 colon cancer.

Hope is not, and never is, lost. If you can help, and after prayer you feel led to, the link is below directly to their page for donations to help cover the cost of her treatments.

I know God can do amazing things, and I pray it is his plan to be magnified through this tribulation in their family. Joy is a shining light of a person, a truly special wife and mother. If you know her at all, you know.

    I’d love to donate but I’m retired on a fixed income and am keeping my head above water. Now I can PRAY for your family and wife. I will do that and hopefully GOD will hear and answer all our prayers.

  • Combs Linda says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with Joy, Joel and the family. I have known Joel since he was in High School and Joy not long after they married. Amazing and wonderful young people, they have gifts that have made our community a much better place because they have shared them with us. Their faith is exemplary and such a beautiful grace for them and their loved ones. I will be praying very hard Joy and Joel for your healing and return to the daily life you have carved out for all of you.

    Joy Keller, a friend of Judy Davidson, Joy’s mother, announced to the church of 150+ that Joy Davidson desperately needed prayer. Judy assisted the births for some of our young people long ago when she worked with Ora Jane Brixey. We will be praying. Joel deserves all the support he can get and we will believe for her to live on.
