Matt Turner


I know not everyone is on Twitter and I highly believe in the power of prayer so this post is important.

I've been following Julee's blog for years and she is one of the sweetest people. She is definitely one of those people I feel like I "know" although I have actually never met her. We've shared emails as we both journeyed though some battles to become parents during the same time period. I was extremely overjoyed when Julee became pregnant with Preslee. Sweet Preslee is now 10 months old.....
Last night, Julee's husband, Matt, was killed in a car wreck. He is also someone I feel like I "knew" after reading Julie's blog and watching him on TV for the five years I lived in Northwest Arkansas. He was a wonderful man. 

My heart is aching for Julee and Preslee. I've not been able to keep myself together today because I feel so much pain for them. 

I know they are feeling our prayers and God is holding them, but please continue to pray. 

There are several videos and articles going up online about Matt. This is on the site for the station Matt recently started working for.

If you want want to contribute to a fund to send Julee and Preslee treats or another one being set up, you can find more information here.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." - Matthew 11:28-29

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." - John 14:27

"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed." Psalm 34:18

I'll resume my 31 Days of Twin Treats tomorrow.

  14. I kind of lost it when I read about Matt, too. I'd met him when I worked at Celebrate, because they had their satellite office right across the hall. I felt like I "knew" him too, just from watching him and seeing him at different functions around town. I didn't know about Julee's blog, but omg my heart is aching for them... SO SO sad!
