I am a wife to the incredible Uncle Rico and a proud mom to 3 daughters that are a beautiful blessing to me in so many ways - Mere-Bear, Ali-Bug and Ju-Bean. In 2010 our life was additionally blessed when Mere married the amazing JP! On August 3, 2011 and October 3, 2013 we expanded our knowledge of LOVE with the arrival of our scrumptious grandsons - Caiden & Carson!! Their presence in our lives has changed us so much that even our names are not the same. From now on Rico and I will be called ~ PINKY and POPS!!
I have been on a journey learning that this life is not about me...but about Him, The Lord Jesus Christ. It is because of my discoveries and growth in the knowledge of His Love & Kindness that I can't help but testify and help others along their journey's.
I am aSurvivor!
On May 15, 2010 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
It was the most wicked and most amazing journey of my entire life! The power of community with Christ and others was unbelievable!
In March 2011 I celebrated the news of being healed and cancer free! I gratefully continue to celebrate 4 years in remission this May 2014!! You can read more about my PINK Hope Journey at www.caringbridge.org/visit/veronicahutcherson
The goal of my blog is: To magnify what the Lord has done and is doing in my life. To inspire and encourage others with His Love that has provided my life with so much Hope & Healing! To advocate for the causes and concerns of Cancer, Sex Trafficking and Disaster Relief. To mentor and run alongside the next generation of women & moms without messing them up too much! ;)
I'm not perfect so please share Grace often when dealing with me. Thanks!
So honored you stopped by and look forward to all that will go on in this place!!

Is there something stirring in you? Do you sense a change coming on? Change is not a bad thing so do not resist it - in fact pray for it! Lately, I have been feeling that change was coming. I have felt it before many times and recognize it in my spirit. I am learning not to ignore it but to seek God and pray. As I sense this current change coming on I have been specifically praying for God to change me, guide me, strengthen me, and inspire me so I can inspire others with what I learn! I am also praying this over each one of my family members! I pray that we are alert and aware to respond with willingness and obedience to those things He wants to strengthen, move, remove or include in our lives. Here are some of the things I am praying: Change My Interests Change My Discussions Change My Visions Change My Imaginations Change My Thoughts Change My Dreams Change My Preferences Change My Cravings Change My Desires CHANGE ME - INSPIRE ME, LORD! So that every area of my mind, heart and actions would reflect and represent You more and Your purpose and plan for my life and my family members lives! That our own purpose and sometimes floppy & fleshly desires would become less & less and Your power & purpose would become more & more! I set out a challenge to you to pray this for yourself and for your family. I dare you to surrender to Him & His desires of service for your life. WARNING - Be prepared to make some changes as He teaches, guides and prepares you for your future steps. He wants to use you in your home, your work place, your school, your church, your community, and out in the world. In order to do that He often moves, adds, removes or takes away people and things in our lives. It is all for Good and for His Glory!! How will you know how to accomplish what He is calling you to until you surrender and seek Him and make a choice to trust and allow Him to show you the way you should go...even if it doesn't make sense or look like you thought your life would be like. Hang in there and get in His Word, the Bible, and watch it unfold! Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:14-15 NIV He must become greater: I must become less. John 3:30 NIV Am I not trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10 NIV The Lord has given me a strong warning not to think like everyone else does...don't live in dread of what frightens them. Isaiah 8:11 NLT "Imagine what you could become if you looked to others to inspire them, and not to compare or to see if you are good enough. You loved yourself & realized you were created for a purpose in this world!" ~ Sandi Krakowski Know this - that it is not whether you will change & serve - it is whom you will decide to change & serve for. Each day - throughout the day we make these decisions - be alert as to what your decisions & motives for change are saying about who you serve and live for! He is our source - We are His voice! Be Inspired! Pinky Vern
