We trust you all have had a good year so far and are
anticipating the holiday season with joy. Even though we are
staying in Hickory, NC, for a while yet, we are spending as many
weekends as possible in the mountains, and seeking God for His good plan
for our future.
At this point in our lives we know for certain that trusting God and His
timing is all we want, so we
have peace and assurance that we are walking in God's Master plan
Please pray with us as we listen to the Holy Spirit for guidance and
wisdom in decisions. We continue to spend time in
the Word and prayer and God is covering us with great grace and giving
us unprecedented favor as we follow Him. We are not discouraged, but
enlarged in this waiting time, knowing as it says in Psalm 31:15, "Our
times are in His Hands."
Dennis is enjoying another year at Challenger Early College High
School as their counselor and basketball coach. The season has begun and
he is looking forward to a good year with his team.
Jeannie is thrilled to announce that her new
book is now available!
You may order it today at
and it is also listed on Amazon.com. The ebook version
will be available in January. This is Stacie's
story and subsequently our story, too. Rowe Publishing in Kansas,
who published Jeannie's first book, Dawn of Day, published
this new book also. Stacie picked the title and Jeannie added a
subtitle: I Will Not Fear: A Chosen Life.
It is our prayer that this book will bring hope and joy to all who read
it. Here is the description listed on the publisher's website:
She arrived late - over three weeks past her due date - and she departed
decades too early for her family and friends. But during the 36 years of
her life on earth, Stacie Jeanne McPhail brought love and joy to
everyone who knew her. As a young child, she made the decision to live a
life of complete faith in the God Who loved her.
Stacie loved the Word of God, and relied on the Holy Spirit to guide her
in making life decisions. Through the joys and challenges of growing up,
school, career, relationships, home, and ministry, Stacie never doubted
the good plan God had for her. Even when faced with a cancer diagnosis,
Stacie stood firm on God's promises, and remained strong and courageous
all the way Home to Heaven.
I Will Not Fear: A
is a testimony to the faithfulness of God. It is the fulfillment of a
mother's promise to her only child, to share with others why and how
this family chose, no matter what, to live a life of faith without
That was our theme throughout the year of Stacie's battle with cancer
and it continues to be so as we face each day. Fear, grief, and
sorrow are replaced with faith, peace, and joy in our wonderful Lord and
His good plan for our lives. Sometimes waiting for new dreams and
visions to come to pass isn't the easiest thing to do, especially when
you really want some things to change now. But the words to this old
Gospel song say exactly what we know and are doing and that makes all
Turn your eyes upon
Look full in His
And the things of
earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His
Glory and Grace.
From our house to yours,
and Happy New Year,

out for a while but we still like to share it -
The Macs singing the National Anthem
The last song Stacie sang here on this old earth was our National Anthem at the WOFR radio rally on June 9. We don't have a recording of that
performance but we were honored to sing the National Anthem on Sunday
afternoon, March 4, 2012 for the NCAA Division II South Atlantic
Conference Men's Basketball finals in Hickory, NC. We did record
it and if you haven't seen it yet - or even if you have - we hope you
will go to YouTube and listen. Here is the link:
