Endurance and Faith


For the past few days, I've tossed around ideas for this post, from adventure stories of the amazing kiddos, to an update on the dayjob (which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE), but I quickly realized this post should not be about me at all, it should be about someone else.

Now, some of you are probably thinking, "Uh, oh! Where's she going with this post?" Hah! I assure you, my goal is to be uplifting and enthusiastic for what's to come in the near future to readers across America and abroad (our neighbors across the pond have shown great interest in the topic as well). This is the first in a series of posts that will shed light on a project I have been working on since November 2010, an account of hope and courage, as well as a story of selfless determination to help millions across the globe.

My intentions are not to tease you with sketchy details or to dramatize the significance of the story, but to pique your interest so you will not feel uninformed when the time arrives to reveal all details about this amazing project. You all have been so supportive and encouraging of my writing, and I do not want you to feel short-changed in any way.

Most importantly, you should know that the subject of this story is a true hero, a young person who has made a courageous choice to help you and me, and millions of other people worldwide. It is his prayer that many will benefit from the fruit of his efforts. Indeed, he is a testament of endurance and faith.

In closing, I would like to say that it has been an honor to know this young man, and it is my privilege to convey his story to you.

Have a great weekend, everyone! ~ Tory

  4. Lindsay, I'm so glad I "piqued" your interest, and I hope this means you'll keep a weathered eye on Head in the Clouds. Though I will work around the clock to ensure this project is a success for all involved, I promise to update on the story in the coming days/weeks. Again, thanks for stopping by today. Your support means a lot!

  5. Consider me piqued (actually since November), andy my eye weathered...and glad to hear the new job is going well.

    My breath is bated. (Not baited... I think that would mean I've been eating worms or crickets or something.) :-)

  7. Hi, Andy! So glad you visited, and I promise there will be more updates of this story in the near future. Hope all is well with your family. :-)

    Thank you, Jeannie! Was a bit nervous about putting myself "out there," but you know better than I that it takes this and so much more to build interest in a project. Hope things are going well for your father - please keep us updated on Twitter:)
