Welcome to the first of the Family Stories posts! There will (hopefully) be one each Sunday of November. Today’s Family Story comes from my friend Larri. Here’s a little about her:
I’m a self-proclaimed Jill-of-all-trades as I love to embark on new learning adventures almost daily. I am a Jesus-Praiser and homeschooling, public schooling, sewing, baking, blogging, crafting, and thrifty-spending wife of almost 18 years to the best husband ever (known around here as DH), and momma to three fabulous kids: Son#1, Son#2, and LittleGirl. I find much joy in trying new crafts, and am currently stitching up my first quilt, as well as learning to design and draft my own fashion and AG Doll patterns. While sewing and crafting, you’ll most likely hear me singing my heart out to my Lord or humming praise and worship songs.
I’ve had the privilege of getting to know her over the past few months and I’m so glad she is sharing her story today! You can find her at Seams Inspired.

I answered and was greeted by a family member. My grandmother had suffered a massive coronary and passed away that morning. My mom had been out all day didn’t have a cell phone at that time, thus the call to me. I knew I hadn’t heard right…because in my plan, God would take my grandfather first. He was older, sicker; and it just seemed to me that’s the way it should be. Once the shock wore off, I began making the necessary calls to my parents and siblings. God’s plan was definitely not my plan.
