#165: Erin's Story
Erin and Jon were married on August 2, 2002 settled down in a Midwestern Wisconsin city and began to enjoy and contribute to a community they loved. Jon loved God his family and serving others and was known as big “fellowship junkie.” Jon and Erin’s family grew as did their love for God and their involvement in their church and community.
Olivia, their oldest child demonstrated a real love for God and people and would often be found in the middle of a conversation with adult friends about God, eternity and other topics that seemed to set her apart. Those who think of her today might have both a tear in their eye and a smile on their face as they remember her loving and sincere heart. She was quiet, but silly, one who was cherished by her family and friends.
On, May 3, 2015, as they went for an early spring walk a random act of violence temporarily separated this family and left Erin fighting for her life.
The extreme pain of separation has given Erin an understanding of God, His love and His healing power. Although Erin’s story still has many chapters to complete, she candidly shares with those willing to listen where hope can be found.
