We promised two big announcements today. You have been very patient here they are:
We have spent the last month working on a book inspired by Joel. We released it for sale today as an ebook. (We are hoping to have a printed version soon.) We are really proud of it. We have never been very comfortable with the idea of fundraisers for Joel, but we are happy to accept people’s support through the purchase of this children’s book that shares his story and ours.
Our second big announcement today is that there is really wonderful documentary about Joel on you tube. It was released today. It is thirteen minutes long. We love it a lot, and we are excited for the world to know more about Joel and to witness God’s past and future faithfulness to him. We hope you will share the video with your friends. (We also hope you’ll tell people about our book if you like it.)
We also realize that the release of this video means there may be lots of new visitors to this website. So, later tonight, or early tomorrow, I will post a brief recap of how Joel has been doing since the documentary. In the mean time, if you are new to Joel’s website, welcome. You can read a very brief history of Joel’s fight with cancer so far by clicking on the “This is Joel” link at the top of the page. On the side of the page, there are links for photos, videos, “Daddy Art” which are really cool art things Ryan has posted, especially in the first year of Joel’s fight with cancer, and “Mommy Theology” which are the posts since the beginning that communicated what we feel like God has been teaching us along the way. (We are pretty sure the website has too many posts for anyone to go through and read them all from the beginning, but if you click on those links you can get a basic background.)

    I just watched your video about little Joel on Soul Pancake. I wish you all the best of everything. Joel is a fighter, and it is amazing to see the love and positivity you all have as a family. I am thinking of you all x
