Ladies' Home Journal

I was excited to see the latest issue of Ladies' Home Journal feature this story in their March issue.

I had the privilege of meeting both Editorial Assistant Amelia Harnish and Health Director Julie Bain during a girlfriends trip to NY City this winter. Amelia gave my friends, Rebecca and Lesle, and I a tour of Ladies' Home Journal.

David Molar and his wife Tammy did the photo shoot for the magazine. They are such a great couple with such amazing talent. If you ever have the chance to see David's work, check it out.

One of my favorite photo of the day was of our family.

It's ironic that the article came out the day I was being released from the hospital. This is the first time in a long time that I have felt very sick. I am still recovering from the RSV, pneumonia, and infection. It has been a harder road then I expected. I do feel so thankful for all of the prayers, letters, meals, gifts and well wishes from everyone to keep my spirits up. I am trying to reflect on present blessings and all of the amazing things God has done in my life, to bring me to where I am this day.


  1. Tricia, I have followed your story for many years. You are beautiful, as is your angel of a girl, Gwyneth. Thank you for continuing to blog and keep us all updated. So glad to hear you are recovering in good form, and so frustrating to hear that insurance had denied RSV prevention for you.

  2. You have a beautiful family Tricia. I have had the joy of getting to know you only through blogs and twitter but you have truly touched my heart. Many prayers for you and yours while you continue to recover and always:)

  3. Tricia: the article is a beautiful tribute to a beautiful woman. Feel better soon!

  4. Four of my grandchildren has RSV. Two were hospitalized. I promise that you are recovering at "normal" speed. It's just s-l-o-o-o-o-o-w.

  5. I'm glad you're back home and I hope you continue feeling better. Congratulations on the magazine feature!

  6. I could only read one part of the article and I loved going through the memories I had of that time.

    Your family is so unique and beautiful anyone could take a photo and it would reflect that :)
