I don't honestly know what else to say. The last couple of weeks have been crazy (in a very good way!)
So, the last time I posted about Hannah, her heart was broken. Well, though I can't say she is happy about the status of Hawk Nelson, it did bring an amazing opportunity our way, let me explain.
Scott and I were very concerned about Hannah's reaction to the news of Jason leaving; it is hard to see your child so upset. We encouraged her to pray, explaining that we cannot always understand God’s plans, but we need to trust Him and know that His plans are good. I kept reinforcing to her Jason's statement that he had prayed on this decision for three years. We talked about the power of prayer and, WOW, within two weeks of our daily prayers, God answered with an amazing opportunity.
Hannah came to us to share a tweet from Jason Dunn, Hawk Nelson's lead singer

So, being the supportive parents that we try to be, Scott contacted Jason. The next thing we knew, we had scheduled Jason to come to Olean in April! We are now terrified and trying to find venues for him to play, but we are trying to trust God that He will guide us in this process.
This is an amazing opportunity for the youth in our community and for the girls in my girls group, and I am thrilled to be able to give them this. We do have one scheduled show at the Obi Community Church on April 20. This will be specifically for the youth in our community, and we are expecting at least 200 kids to come out. How exciting!!!
So, that is my big news that will be keeping me very busy in the weeks to come. Please pray that we can make this a successful event!
We are off to New Jersey and Long Island this weekend for competitions. I am tired just thinking about it, but hopefully Hannah will have a lot of fun and success!
