It’s “share a blessing” time again-
this is one of my most favorite thing we do at TVP!
We are asking you to help us bless others for Mother’s Day…
we LOVE to bless people, and we LOVE surprises,
we want to help you share some unexpected love and joy with others!
Do you know a mother who is going through some tough times
and needs to be blessed with a meaningful “pick me up”?
Together let’s bless someone that could use a sweet anonymous gift,
to show them someone is thinking of them who cares—
we want to send them a surprise package with a TVP goodie!
To nominate someone for a surprise blessing:
simply send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, May 2–
put “A BLESSING FOR MOM” in the subject box,
briefly (2-3 sentences please) tell us WHY you are nominating this person,
and we also need to know:
1. their name
2. their address
3. customizing info
(kids names, meaningful words or a special date,
whatever you think will put a smile on their face!)
Thank you for helping us spread some blessings and making moms feel loved!
Please understand that we may not be able to do them ALL,
but we will bless as many as we can for Mother’s Day!
Jordan and Mindi Linscombe met at ORU, have been married almost 10 years, and love living in Colorado Springs with their 3 little boys: Bear (5), Brody (2), and Blake (3 months).
Over the past several months, Brody had some swollen lymph nodes in his neck that most doctors just assumed was due to infection. Then in February, Mindi and Jordan persisted to have some additional tests done for Brody because his neck kept getting bigger.
After several days in the hospital, they found out their little boy had cancer.
It’s a rare form of cancer called Anaplastic Lymphoma.
It was a crazy feeling as parents to one day be talking about whether to put Brody in soccer this summer, versus the next day discussing what kind of treatment options they would choose to save his life the next.
Their life completely came to a halt. Brody immediately started undergoing chemotherapy and has a long road to recovery with at least a year of treatments. The Linscombes are facing many new adjustments with this diagnosis including, changes in Mindi & Jordan’s work dymanics, a new level of isolation as Brody is immunocompromised, navigating the new relationship with Brody’s brothers, and many more. They appreciate all the support of their faith, family, and friends because they know they would not make it without them.
a note from Mindi:
We have been calling our son “Brody The Brave” because he has been so strong through all of the difficult days he has had in the hospital, and at home. Brody has had to undergo several lumbar treatments where he went under anesthesia, breathing treatments sometimes every hour, numerous blood draws, a blood transfusion, and the list goes on.
For a 2-year old, we think he’s pretty brave.
However, in our time at the hospital, we have met and heard so many other stories of kids and people that are undergoing some very hard things – other rare forms of cancer, multiple family members with cancer, rare disease, job loss, infertility, disability, the list goes on. Brody is not alone and neither are we. We have been surrounded by brave people that are facing these hard things every day with courage.
We like to think of Brody as part of a bigger group of people that have gone before us, are going with us, and will go after us…”the BRAVE“.
TVP has teamed up with the Linscombe’s and created this necklace for them…
A portion of each necklace sold will be given to the family to aid with financial medical needs,
please join us and show your support!
Tessa had a great day at Biz Town, she was the Mayor!
She said it was the BEST SCHOOL DAY EVER!
The randomly picked winner of our brand new “believer” charm necklaces is…
Sarah Jones, who said: I would choose Amethyst. Not only is it my son’s birthstone, it was my wonderful grandfather’s as well. My grandfather passed away in July 2009, and it February 2011, my son was born on what would have been my grandfather’s 74th birthday. So it holds a very special meaning!
Congrats Sarah, we will be contacting you for a ship-to address soon!

a handforged sterling silver cross with any swarovski birthstone in the center-
yours, your child’s , significant others, or even a stone of remembrance.

Today our leadership team is learning from the BEST in the BIZ at
the “Disney Institute for Business Excellence”!
It’s hard for us all to get away from the studio sometimes,
but days like today are totally worth it.
We are constantly learning and trying to become better as a company
(I was a Psych major with a minor in Spanish after all!)
and we love learning from others that have been successful.
We walked away inspired, fed with knowledge and new insights…
it will be exciting to see what new ideas come out of it!
My girls and I had an AMAZING time at Disneyland…
we ate Mickey Mouse waffles for breakfast…
We rode the new CARS LAND racing ride…
(which we weren’t able to get on the last time we were here because of long lines)
and LOVED it!
All Tessa wanted was a goofy hat and gloves,
so for the rest of the trip Eden and I would point to her and say “we’re with GOOFY”.
We had lunch at Ariel’s Grotto…
watched the new Aladdin musical… it was amazing.
rode lots of rides…
played games, won prizes…
and ate mickey ice creams…
We stayed on property at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel which isn’t something we normally do, this was a total splurge (thanks to our American Express points!)
The hotel was very nice although the room was simple and basic…
but we were given a park view and able to see some of the rides from our balcony, it was pretty when they were all lit up at night time!
Because we stayed on property we were given access to the parks an hour before people NOT staying on property, so we were able to ride a few favorite rides without waiting. The weather was beautiful and the lines weren’t too bad, and being able to just take a break when we needed to go up to our room in a matter of minutes to rest (see Eden on her bed above) or go swim was perfect. We had a special entrance to one of the parks, and everything is within a short walking distance to each other (both Disney parks, Downtown Disney and our hotel) so we didn’t even rent a car.
We would definitely go back again!
It’s sad to say but my kids are growing up —
they don’t get super excited about characters anymore…
but they still take the pictures for me…
because I DO get excited, they’re so fun and part of the “magic”!
I introduced the girls to room service…
and it was yummy!
This morning I woke up the girls with a fun surprise:
we are going to Disneyland!
I don’t know how I’ve been able to keep this secret from them,
I’ve almost slipped many times.
I’m so excited to have them all to myself for a few days —
All 3 of my boys are heading out to help and serve at the LA Dream Center for their Spring Break! This is Caleb’s 3rd ministry trip as an 8th grader, Jonah’s first ministry trip as a 6th grader, and this year Ryan is a chaplain. So proud of my boys and just one of the many reasons we love our school and church — they are raising up leaders and missionaries, helping others, learning to serve and making a difference! Mark 16:15
After many requests we have taken our popular “no matter the miles between us” keychain and turned it into a necklace!
You’ll always be in my heart, no matter the miles between us, our hearts are always connected.
A handsculpted USA charm (about 1 1/2″ across) in a beautiful bronze is slightly hammered and handstamped with hearts over any 2 places with dots connecting them in between. A sweet gift for any long distance friends, loves, or family members. Finished on your choice of bronze or sterling chain with a freshwater pearl.
…are few and far between in our house!
This is the first lazy Saturday morning our family has had in a LONG time!
(We usually have sports games early)
Tessa is making us breakfast while we lounge together–
she LOVES to cook and what a blessing it is to have her help!
Happy Saturday everyone!
