In January 2021 President Trump invited the American people to a protest in DC where my husband, 14 year old daughter and I along with several church members and friends traveled to the rally. Since that day, our family along with so many other Americans have been dealing with the dark side of the events that transpired that day. My daughter is still dealing with trauma she suffered from that day as she was pepper sprayed and gassed along with the rest of our friends. It’s truly the most devastating thing we’ve ever experienced. In May of 2021 we caught the FBI following us to church and saw them sitting in our neighborhood for weeks. 6 weeks later on June 30th at 545am our home was raided. 50 plus swat agents and homeland security agents, and 3 armored tanks threw flash bang grenades at and in our home. They called us out of our home one by one, my children included with lasers on us at gunpoint. The force they used was so excessive my pictures in my home were knocked off the walls from the flash bangs, my carpets were burned up. It was so traumatic and when I walked out my front door it looked like a war zone. I could not believe what was happening. My poor neighbors thought we were shot and killed. They also drove the armored trucks through our gates to the back of our property and my poor dog ran away during all of this and she even suffers with ptsd from loud noises now. After the raid the swat team left after clearing the property and about 40 FBI agents came on the scene and came in my home to search for anything they deemed as evidence. We later found out they raided our friends at the same time the same morning and took 3 others to jail as well. They were released the same day with ankle monitors while my husband was advised by his public defender to go to DC for a better chance at getting released, he sat in jail for 14 days before finally getting a new judge in DC to grant him bond where he was released on house arrest.  He was on house arrest for 16 months. PreTrial conditions were that he was not even allowed to be on our porch, take out the trash or help his father who lives on the same property. He had to be indoors. Unless at work or church.  After 16 months we saw God move a mighty mountain and he was taken off of house arrest and placed on stand alone monitoring..Only God!! Since all of this my family has witnessed God’s mighty hand in our lives, and seen him work things together for our good so many times. My husband is not who the media has portrayed him to be and my heart hurts for him over all of this. He is a God fearing man who loves Jesus with all his heart. He loves his family and his country and he does not deserve this. We’re saddened but not bitter because God has used this to change us and make us stronger in our faith and for that we are thankful.  It’s also caused our family to cling more than ever to the promises of God and we are trusting in him for the strength to get through this. “My help cometh from the LORD, Which made heaven and earth.” Psalm‬ ‭121‬:‭2‬ ‭He has been our help and our peace in the midst of all the chaos. My husband’s trial is March 6th and we are hopeful and trust God to do a mighty work. I hate to ask for help but I am seeking financial help to cover some bills if he’s convicted..I will need all the help I can get until I find employment that allows me to still homeschool being that I’m a stay at home mom and we depend on his income so this has created added stress and I’d be extremely grateful for any financial support but more importantly I desire prayer! Pray for God to be glorified through this, pray for our faith to be strengthened and unmovable, pray for divine intervention and that others look at us during this trial and see Christ! Pray for our judge, our public defender, and even the prosecutors.Thank you so much for your help and continued support and prayers.


“This I recall to my mind, Therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, Because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: Great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; Therefore will I hope in him.” ‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3‬:‭21‬-‭24‬ ‭

I just wanted to thank everyone again for all the prayers and support especially the last few days. They got us through some very dark days. For those following our story Michael was sentenced to 48months. It’s not the outcome we prayed for but we prayed for God’s will to be done and we know if he brought us to it he will bring us through it. We’re clinging to his promises with every thing we have right now. Please continue to pray for our family as we try to find normalcy and keep our family intact as much as we can. Thank you all for the financial support as well. It has truly been a burden lifted from me as I’ve been struggling through the waiting part of all of this. Please pray I find another job to go along with my part time job so that my children don’t have to work to help me survive. It doesn’t feel natural for them to have this burden placed on their shoulders. Parents should help their children not the other way around. But they have been doing all the can to keep our home going and I’m so proud of them and so thankful for them. Thank you and God bless you all.

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” ‭‭James‬ ‭5‬:‭16‬ ‭

We fly to DC in the morning. Please keep our family in your prayers as we travel and for Michael’s sentencing on Thursday morning at 10am. We are so thankful for all the calls, texts, and for the many prayers for our family. Keep them coming❤️ We have peace that passes all understanding. We know our lives are in HIS hands, not the enemies and what ever happens is going to be according to His will. And that’s what we desire, for God’s will to be done. No matter what that looks like, we trust Him! His way is perfect and He is more than able to bring Michael home and I’m believing him for that, but even if that’s not His will. We’re still gonna praise God because He is good! Please pray for Judge  Carl Nichols as he renders a verdict and that he’ll do as the Lord says and he’ll have a heart of flesh and God will speak mercy into his heart. Pray for Benet (The lead prosecutor) My hearts desire is for her to come to know the Lord through all of this. As much as my flesh wants to see God punish our enemies, I know He loves her and wants her saved and I don’t want any hate in my heart for anyone, I want to see her saved, so please help me pray for her soul. Thank you all!

Hey y’all, just wanted to let everyone know Michael’s sentencing is Aug.17th at 10am. My children and I, along with our pastor and a few friends will be traveling to DC to be there for it. Please pray as we travel. My daughter is having some anxiety about going back there and so am I. Also, pray for God to move in the heart of this judge on behalf of Michael. We’ve prayed and trust God to bring him home to us because we need him, he’s our protector and provider and my children and I miss him terribly. He was always right there with them doing whatever they were doing their whole lives. There’s a sadness in our hearts so deep it hurts and will continue until we’re all together again. We are gonna choose to trust God no matter the outcome. We want God’s will in our lives because His will is perfect. We are expecting great and mighty things to come out of this situation because God is good and He will work this together for our good and He’s able! I expect nothing less. Continue to pray for the hearts of all those working on our case, and that through this they’ll be saved and God will be glorified. God bless you all and thank you for your love, kindness, and precious prayers.❤️

“For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.” ‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭

Hey y’all. Please be praying for Michael a little extra the next few weeks. They took him to the DC Central Detention Facility on Wednesday. He is in 23 hour a day lock down until next Friday and then he’ll be on 20 hour lockdowns until sentencing. We have no idea when sentencing is going to be. We are waiting on the presentence report and then they have to reschedule the August 16 date because his attorney is not available at that time so it could be sooner or it could be later, depending on what they agree on as far as a date for sentencing.Since leaving FL 2 weeks ago he’s down 20lbs from the stress of being shipped all over the country, missing meals and sitting in holding cells all day at every facility only to be moved again. It’s absolutely maddening to me how he’s being treated. Please be praying for his mental state, being in that horrible facility with no Bible or anything just sitting on a bunk for 23 hours a day is pure torture and inhumane. I don’t know how they can do anybody this way. God help those in authority that make these policies, you will answer to All Mighty God for all the evil one day!! We treat our animals in America better than we treat the people in our prisons. I don’t care what people have done. No one should ever have to endure this kind of torment. I’ve been studying about suffering and our world is full of it. But I take comfort in what the scripture says about suffering, Jesus suffered the most and out of that suffering came salvation to all who will believe. God calls us into that same suffering with Christ. And just like Christ, we’re going to endure some suffering.  Suffering never feels good, it never looks good, but we know that our God is a God who takes something bad and turns it into something good. That’s just who he is! God said it’s acceptable for us to take suffering patiently when we endure suffering and grief wrongfully. 1 Peter 3:17 says…For it is better if the will of God be so, that you suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. God’s word says to hide his word in our hearts because something like this could happen one day and you might not be able to have his word. Don’t take your Bible for granted. Please pray daily that God puts a verse on Michael’s heart that he can meditate on. And a song in his heart. Thank you, God bless you!

“Thou tellest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle: Are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: This I know; for God is for me.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭56‬:‭8‬-‭9‬ ‭

Hey everyone. It’s been a rough week spiritually and mentally. I feel like I have no more tears to cry. But even in my brokenness, I find peace in knowing that God is still with us he knows where we are and he’s bottling up our tears. I just wanted to give a quick update and ask everyone to pray! Michael’s attorney was trying to get the judge to keep him in FL since sentencing was moved back 30 more days (now Aug .16) She filed the motion on the afternoon of Friday the 16th and the court was closed on the following Monday and so he was shipped to Oklahoma in the middle of the night on that Monday before the judge could even get a chance to review the motion. I 100% believe it was intentional to try to get him to DC for that extra month.  Michael was doing so well in FL and had a great ministry there with the men. Now he is back to square one. Since Monday the 19th he’s been without his Bible in a horrific facility in OK and has been extremely sick and worn down from all the travel over the last week. I had just ordered him some food and things he needed and some medicine and he was flown out next day so of course we lost all that money along with the commissary money in the last facility. It is so corrupt how they do that and don’t allow refunds. So from FL he was moved to OK and then to Philly area and then bussed 5 hours to upstate VA.  They call this “diesel therapy” You can look it up but it’s basically another form of punishment and they have been doing it to lots of J6 guys. Please help me pray for his health, his peace, his protection and that he gets a Bible soon. He’s trying hard not to let any of this break him because that’s the purpose of all of this. Please pray for my children and I as well. The anxiety of the not knowing where he is and how he is, is a lot. Thank you all for the prayers.

Hey y’all! Just wanted to share an update with you. I’m reminded of the story of Joseph as I witness the work the Lord is doing in and through my husband. Every day I speak to him his faith is stronger and renewed day by day. In Genesis 50:20 we see Joseph not angry or bitter with his brothers for what they did to him. But rather he looked at it through the eyes of Christ and realized what they meant for evil God used it for good and used Joseph to save many people from famine. And I see that in what Michael’s going through. Satan meant to destroy him but he’s still going and still doing all he can to bring hope to the men God has placed in his life and because of that men are being encouraged and saved. God truly is using this for good. Michael is still doing his daily Bible study and prayer meetings at night. He’s led 4 men to Christ now, and many others have rededicated their lives and one even told him he believed God sent him in there just for him because he needed to be reminded to come back to God because he’s been running for way too long and was on a path of destruction. To God be the Glory! Our church has also been sending in Bible’s to the men Michael is ministering to. Please pray for all these men. There are 12 that attend his Bible study and he is encouraged by their interest in God’s word and it’s proven to him this is not in vain and God is not wasting this hurt. He’s already proven himself so mightily. Praise God for his provision and for every fellow believer and American patriot who are being obedient to the Lords voice by helping take care of us through this dark time in our life. We are so blessed and grateful and we covet every prayer. It’s helping us stand when we are weakest. Pray for Michael as he will be flown to DC sometime after June 22nd in preparation for sentencing in July. Pray the DC guards and facility do him no harm and that God gives him favor among them in DC just as he has in PCSO. Also pray for sentencing and that his judge would be just and merciful. Thank you all for the continued support..God Bless you all! 

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” ‭‭2

Just wanted to share a quick update and thank everyone that has donated since Michael had to turn himself in. It has allowed me to not have to stress the financial burden of this as much, on top of processing and adjusting. That truly is an answer to prayer and I’m thankful to God for his loving care and provision. Michael is redeeming the time he has in jail. Since starting his Bible study he has had the privilege of leading a precious soul to Christ and is encouraging many others who have strayed from the Lord. God truly never wastes a hurt. He is working in the unseen. He never promised a life without persecution and trouble but he did promise he would be with us wherever we go. And I know he’s with him and giving him strength to endure this “light affliction” that is for but a moment and that is worth so much in light of eternity. The Bible says there’s rejoicing in the presence of angels over one soul that repents “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”Luke 15:10 God and Jesus were rejoicing this week over this soul and Michael will be rewarded in eternity for his faithfulness in sharing the Gospel. “It will be worth it all when we see Christ, one glimpse of his dear face, all sorrows will erase, when we see Christ ❤️

Please pray for James as he grows in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus. Pray for Michael as he shares the love of Jesus with all who will listen and pray for him as he leads the men in nightly prayer meetings before bed that he has just started doing in addition to the Bible study. To God be the glory!

But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more…Psalm71:14

I’ve tried to type an update and have deleted it many times this week because I just couldn’t get my thoughts together enough to say what my heart was feeling. This past Monday April 17th Michael turned himself into the middle district of Florida court marshals for presentence detention which is in July. Our hearts are hurting and our minds are scattered. My poor daughter is devastated . She is a daddy’s girl.. We’re all just devastated to be honest. The first 2 days we just listened to each other cry over our phone calls. We had no words. Michael was stripped of everything, including his family, he couldn’t even get a Bible, he didn’t have a pillow, and he can’t receive any extra food or commissary items until next week so the thoughts of your husband being completely destitute while you try to get through your days, because life does not stop has been the hardest thing we’ve ever faced. But because God is so faithful and is near to the brokenhearted he has sent angels to minister to our family through calls, cards, and visits. Guards have encouraged Michael and some of the inmates have encouraged him as well. One inmate has even made a pillow for Michael and I was able to get a Bible sent in to him which he received Wednesday and since then he’s been in better spirits. He told me last night he was having his first Bible Study with a few inmates this morning (Saturday the 22nd).Praise the Lord!  I also praise the Lord for his goodness and favor he’s shown to Michael and our family. I praise him for his provision and for the answers to prayer through all of this. The Lord is teaching me a lot about gratefulness and thankfulness. Or should I say my lack of gratefulness and thankfulness. When I sit down with my children for dinner, and we thank the Lord for our food, it’s different now. To know what my husband has for dinner compared to what we have makes it hard to eat sometimes.It truly does make you start to be really thankful for what you have. I don’t know why our family is walking through this. I don’t know why my husband has to suffer like he does, but I do know that God‘s word says in Romans 8:28 “And we know, that all things work together for good to them that love God to them that are the called according to his purpose,”I know I can trust him. I know his word is true. and I know there’s a purpose for this. There are souls that are precious to the Lord and Michael may be the only one that can reach them for God. They are not letting inmates freely have access to the Bible and they make it so hard to get a Bible so I believe God allowed Michael to be in there to preach his word so the Gospel could be in that place because someone there needs the Lord. That makes this suffering more bearable for me, I know this hurt is not in vain. When you go through this kind of hurt, satan desires for your hope to be destroyed. He wants you to feel hopeless. But God’s word has encouraged me to hope continually even when I feel like all hope is lost. A song that has helped encourage me is called “When God has another plan” by the Rochester family “Alone and brokenhearted, questions fill your mind, changes can be hard, but they come by God’s design. if you could see tomorrow, with a view from heaven’s throne, every unexpected struggle has lead you closer home. When God has another plan, be assured that he knows best, when all your dreams are shattered, rest in his sufficient grace, we don’t have to understand, when God has another plan.” Verses that have encouraged Michael- “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, And his ears are open unto their prayers: But the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3‬:‭12‬-‭16‬ ‭He said to thank everyone for the continued prayers and for all those who have written to us, Thank you!!  If anyone would like to write him, you can message me through the prayer button and I can give you his mailing information. God Bless you all!

Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.

updateImage Our family decided to go down to the beach for one last family vacation before Michael has to surrender himself. As we sit on the beach watching a storm roll in and as the waves roughly crash on the shore we are reminded of the verse that says “Though the waters be troubled”  We will not fear and we’re trusting in God as our refuge in the storm we’re facing. We got a call this morning (Wednesday April 12th) that he must surrender himself on Monday morning at 930am. Our hearts are hurting but we are so thankful for the time we have had the past week and we  are so thankful the Lord allowed him to return home after trial so he could see his children and get some of his business and financial affairs in order. Please pray for my children as they say goodbye to their father and for my husband who is so burdened by the fact he won’t be able to protect and provide. We know God has a plan for him and we know the only reason for him to be in there is because God needs Michael to tell someone about God’s great love for them. Pray for him to have peace knowing that and to have boldness as he preaches to the men in the jail and that he’ll see fruit from all this. Thank you all for your prayers and support. God bless you all!

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. We are still struggling to come to grips with the reality of this all and we greatly covet your prayers as we walk through the next step. My husband will have to surrender himself in 30 days to await sentencing on July 13th. Our hearts are shattered in a million pieces over this. Please pray for the strength we need to get through this. Pray we don’t grow bitter, especially my children. Please pray I’ll find work and that it’s flexible and doesn’t take me out of the home so much as I still homeschool my daughter and my main priority is my home, also pray my son finds a job as well. My husband has his own business and so my son will also lose his employment being he works for his father. We don’t understand any of this but we trust that God’s ways are not ours and he always knows best. That doesn’t make this any easier but I know somehow he’ll get us through this fire. Thank you all for the continued support. Any financial help from now on will go directly to my bills. God bless you all!

Cast down, but not destroyed ✝️

The past 10 days have shook our family to our core. We have been through one of the darkest valleys we have ever had to walk through but we’ve also felt such peace and we praise him for his goodness through it all. God sent complete strangers from all over the country to sit in that courtroom and pray us through. I like to think they were angels because we needed them as we sat there feeling so alone. We were blown away by the support and even though things didn’t go how we had planned we witnessed God reveal the truth, shame our accusers and we walked away able to forgive those who have terrorized our family for the last 2 years. I spent most of the first week of trial wanting to rip those people to pieces over the lies and hurt they’ve caused us but Friday I began to look at them differently, I looked with compassion. Jesus was showing me how he sees them. He loves them and wants them to be saved. They need him. It’s easy to hate them but our God is known by love and I want them to know that love. I’m thankful for the opportunity God gave me to see if I truly practice what I preach…loving and praying for my enemies. He put my faith on trial. I know that verse about loving your enemies but when you have to live it out that’s a whole different story but when I left the courtroom I pulled them all to the side and told them we forgive them and we will continue to pray for them and as those words left my mouth the bitterness I had, left as well! We had hundreds of people all over the country praying and we are so thankful for every prayer. We are still clinging on to every promise in the Bible. We are his children and no parent ever forsakes their children especially God! He has another plan and we know he’s gonna walk us through whatever comes next!

“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬-‭9‬ ‭.            

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭44‬ ‭

Thank you for the support and please continue to pray for sentencing. And to the angels who sat with us in that courtroom you’ll never know the blessing you were to us in that moment. God bless you!
