A LIFE Runner that Fought the Good Fight

I am a LIFE Runner.  There are more than 950 of us around the world.  Today, we lost one of our youngest members.  A little boy, (JP) that has fought for his life since birth.  His parents, Jason and Deanna, have been valiant leaders in every race and a strong part of our team since its early beginnings – they set a high bar of faith for all of us.

Jason, JP’s Dad, said this in his LIFE Group Devotion a little more than a year ago,

“For our family, his life forces us to count our blessings no matter how small and to realize that Jesus is with us always.”

You can read his entire LIFE Group Devotion here.   Here is JP’s Caring Bridge page.

JP is pictured in the center between his two friends, Grace and Brianna.

It has been such a blessing being a part of this team and to get to know all the wonderful members.   JP’s  family is a pretty special and  impressive bunch.  They have held tight to their faith all the way through this battle.

To all the runners and everyone that follows my blog, please stop and say a prayer for JP and his family.  JP Ran the good race, fought the good fight and now – rests with our Lord.
