Duke Children's Radiothon

Just wanted to share that tomorrow (Wed 11 Feb), Rebecca, Eliana and I will be going to Duke for their annual radiothon fundraiser.  Not sure yet if the boys - some or all - will be going with us.  We'll see.

Rebecca is planning to make another large donation to the pediatric cardiac unit.  I'm so proud of her work!  If you aren't familiar with what she has done - you can click on the link in my sidebar under Wholehearted Bracelets.

We will be there around 5pm to make the donation and talk on the air.  This time was selected for a big audience going home from work.  If you want to listen, go to this site and follow the link for listening on-line.

I'm not sure yet what we will be asked - probably just to hear our story.  I know that Rebecca will be nervous.  She already is.  I'm not sure I've done enough to prepare her - I just want her to be able to relax and share comfortably what she has done and why.  Would you please pray for calm nerves and an ability to share what God has placed on her heart.  (I'd love that prayer for me too - though I'm not nervous about it.)  I want God to be glorified in all that we say.

I'm thankful for this opportunity and thankful for the friends we have made at Duke.  I'm thankful to be approaching 2 years on a healed heart.  I was thinking back and remembering that 2 years ago, Eliana was in heart failure.  She was struggling to eat and I was struggling to feed her.  It was a hard time - and yet God was so faithful. 

God has blessed our lives in so many ways.  We are blessed to be able to share that with others.




  1. You and Eliana have come a long, long way. Hope you all have a great day!



  2. Good Morning Leslie,

    I will be praying for you, Eliana, and Rebecca today as you speak at Duke. Eliana's story is an amazing example of God's love, faithfulness and healing power. I'm sure that God will be glorified in what you say today, just like He is in what you write in your blog. I'm so proud of Rebecca, too. What an example she is to all of us concerning her generosity and her precious heart for helping others.

    I will pray that God will give you the words to speak, so that all who hear you both will hear HIS message.

    13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.

    1 Corinthians 2:13

    "Wholehearted" Love,


  3. I can only imagine how scary that was two years ago. Praise be to God that your sweet Eliana is doing so well. I think it is awesome that your daughter is doing this fundraiser. I am sure she will do wonderful answering their questions.

  4. Praying for Rebecca and you - God will shine thru you both! Hope that all goes well. aj
