i wish i was the eloquent-creative writer that sara
but i am not.
i am brief.
i lack detail.
i am not as captivating.
i cry, way too much, tends to delay my typing.
but, let me not miss a single detail here…
sara is a humble girl with a soul full of love, and faith.
if you know her, you have in some way been shown compassion or
service by her. she is always thinking of others.
it’s literally impossible to know her and not admire her.
she is beautiful on the inside & the outside,
she is oozing talent from every pore of her body,
a creative genius with the most incredible eye for detail.
she is a devoted daughter,
a loyal friend,
she is a loving, supportive wife
and doting momma, most of all. she adores her family.
matt is extraordinarily humble, full of faith.
a very committed, hard-worker,
he is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet.
he honors his family,
he is always there to help.
he is always there to serve.
he is a true & constant friend,
honest to a fault.
he is the most perfect daddy to his boys,
an admiring, loyal husband.
matt & sara’s beautiful family, which consists of kaden (9), trevan (6), daynen (2), and bronson (16 months) had a terrible, tragic accident ten days ago.
since then, sara has so graciously opened her soul to the world in the past seven days via their family blog. She and Matt are true examples of faith, testimony, and courage. their little bronson is a little miracle as he has survived a drowning accident and continues to improve daily. i believe, as his family does, that little bronson must be the most prayed for baby in the world right now.
bronson’s final prognosis is unknown, and will remain unknown for some time to come. sara & matt are continuing to spend every minute possible at the hospital with little B, and their home is 40 miles away. at home, friends & neighbors are helping to run family life with their three older boys.
the staker family is in awe of the outpouring of love, prayers, and support they are receiving.
sara told me today, “i will never feel alone…ever again.”
but, i am not content with the outpouring of love, prayers, and support.
it is amazing.
but, i, like many others still are feeling the urge to do more…
here are a few options i wanted to share,
1. matt’s sister mindy has said,
“We have set up an account at Wells Fargo.
PLEASE instead of buying food to make them dinner..
Donate $5, $10.. whatever you may have on their behalf.
As we all know the ICU isn’t cheap. Just the life flight for B cost $15,000. …
The account is set up under “The Bronson Staker Donation account”.
If we could even make a little dent in what will be an EXTREME amount,
I know they would be tremendously grateful.
In speaking with Matt, I know all he asks for are prayers.
This is MY plea. My desire to in some small way help them.”
2. help a momma out, by buying her book!
sara, being the humble gal that she is, has not shared some of the most exciting news she has had this year – she is officially published now!
sara designed “latter-day occasions: my baptism keepsake,” cover to cover, and the book is beautiful! a portion of the books expense goes right into sara’s checkbook, what better way to support the staker family than to purchase one of her books?!?
Inside you’ll find a wonderful book perfect to give to that newest member of the LDS Church. The cover allows for the child’s picture to be placed inside of it as well as pages in which to write. Each page has meaningful letters signifying important parts of a child’s life surrounded by the Gospel. “M is for Memories” includes several pages to write about this important event and “T is for Testimony” includes a page to write their personal testimony. This would be a beautiful gift for 8-year-old who is about to be baptized.
3. are you doing a remodel? building a new home?
matt is one of the fine owner’s of carpets america,
located in downtown provo.
call them for your floor covering needs!!!
please, share your love for the staker family, for bronson,
this could have been any of us, any one of our babies.
