The Gift of the Grasshopper

The gift of the grasshopper

We can learn from the creation around us. Take the grasshopper’s strategy of life. A grasshopper cannot physically hop backwards and cannot hop to the left or to the right. It must position itself before it leaps forward while grounded. The grasshopper only has one direction and that is forward. Do not let the woes of this world make you position yourself to go in the direction of the past. Instead let God position your leap. A leap of faith in the right direction is a lesson learned by the gift of the grasshopper. Please keep my son Duke in your prayers. His father is physically withholding Duke from the only person who has been in his life, his entire life. I lift up Ash in prayer and prayer for an intervention to stop this neglect. I allowed Duke to visit Ash on weekends because I believe in fair parental rights. There is no custody order in place and we are waiting for a hearing date on custody. The enemy is using Ash to destroy my son. Prayers are appreciated!

Mother Me

Dear son Dear son

Find joy in the sun

Warmth in the moon

Learn the way of the land

That is your silver spoon

A bunch of fish

And game meat on a dish

May your freezers be full

And your bellies never empty

Mother me mother me

My heart sings for you three

Debut Alaska

I had the pleasure of sharing my children’s book for the first time in public at Mat-Su College for the cultural club event! I hope to read my book all over rural Alaska one day!

Battlefield Alaska

She did not find herself when she thought she was lost

She did not whimper when life leaned on her back

She did not cave in when everything crumbled down

Sometimes when you feel like there is no hope, sometimes when you feel like the world swallowed you whole and spit you back up covered in dirt, this is when it’s a good idea to stand strong and keep your faith. I put my faith in Jesus.

I choose not to fight the battles thrown at me in life, I pray for my battles to be taken to a different battlefield, the spiritual plane where Jesus steps in and commands evil forces away, where there was darkness, He brought light. I am praying this for my home state of Alaska right now. We are loosing our young people to suicide at an elevated rate. In order to fight suicide we need to work together as communities and encourage our parents to spend more time with their children. The more effort and time a parent puts with healthy activities the less likely that child will take their own life. It’s the early ages of 0-7 years that is the most important time for parents to spend quality time and at the same time the child is being molded subconsciously into the unique individual they become. Included in that time is prayer. Pray for your children, even when they are no longer children. Why pick your battles when you don’t even have to fight them, that is the truth of the prayer warrior.

Pray vigilant, love and be love.

There was a sadness in her eyes. The tears seemed to never run dry…

I lost my younger cousin yesterday. He was such a happy kid growing up. He was best buds with my younger brother. They hunted birds and game growing up. When my son Zeth was born he held him and told me he would teach him to hunt when Zeth grew up. I rarely get to see any relatives nowadays, but you are all cherished deeply. I always called Christian Koosubacker or bud. You will be missed dear cousin 💕🙏🏼

Zeth and our cousin Christian 16 years ago.

My sincerest condolences to his parents, sisters and families ❣️
