HI FRIENDS! WE’RE BEN AND MEGAN COLEMAN…
…and this is the place where we share our everyday lives. Honestly, it’s nothing fancy or earth shattering. We are just real people with a messy minivan, piles of laundry that never get folded and ice cream in the freezer to end the day right. But in the midst of the chaos, we also have a heart to share our experiences in case others are walking along the same path too.
Our story starts off like many. Thirteen years ago we got married and enjoyed wedded bliss for a handful of years. Then we blinked and had three little ones running around! As much as we thought we had everything figured out, our lives didn’t play out how we expected. In December 2013, our third child, Bennett, was diagnosed with cancer at 17 months old. Every parent’s worst nightmare became our heartbreaking reality.
We fought cancer for four short months at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our faith was challenged every day as we prayed for our son’s healing. But on April 28, 2014, the cancer died and our sweet Bennett went to heaven (we share about Bennett’s Story here). As you can imagine, this was not part of our plan for our family. It never is for anyone’s. But we continue to trust in who God is and how He works all things for good…even when it hurts.
So whether it’s about strengthening your marriage, parenting in the chaos, walking through grief or trusting God’s plan along the way…we are right there too. Just know you’re not alone on this journey called life and we would love to walk it with you!
We currently live in Sugar Land, Texas, where Ben serves on the pastoral staff at Sugar Creek Baptist Church. Megan makes a lot of to-do lists, does a lot of laundry and takes care of three beautiful children. We are blessed. We are Colemans..
