“Adversity will be a constant or occasional companion for each of us throughout our lives. We cannot avoid it. The only question is how we will react to it. Will our adversities be stumbling blocks or stepping stones? Our responses will inevitably shape our souls and ultimately determine our status in eternity. Because opposition is divinely decreed for the purpose of helping us to grow, we have the assurance of God that in the long view of eternity it will not be allowed to overcome us if we persevere in faith. We will prevail. Like mortal life of which they are a part, adversities are temporary. What is permanent is what we become by the way we react to them.”

My name is Allison and this blog highlights the ups (lots of laughs and energy) and the downs (um, scrubbing toilets) of life in a family full of little boys (and one adorable baby girl!) We have 5 boys (ages 11, 8, 6 yo twins, 2 and 10 months). Our oldest son has brain cancer, so this blog follows his journey as well!
