If you are here after receiving a copy of "Safe In the Arms of God" by John MacArthur, we want to welcome you! We are praying for you. Our hearts ache for the loss of your little one. We pray that this blog will be a help to you as you walk this new hard road.
We will occasionally be putting new posts up that we hope will be helpful. We will even have some guest writers that we hope you will enjoy! There will be stories from others who have walked similar roads and how the Lord has helped them.
This blog was made in memory of our son, Mason Fritz. Mason was born 13 weeks early on June 16th 2010, and due to a severe genetic disorder, was with us for only four days. He joined our Lord and Savior Jesus in heaven on June 20th. To hear more about Mason's story click here. It is our prayer that this blog will be a source of comfort and encouragement to others who have experienced the loss of a baby, whether your baby lived a short life, or just lived in the womb and was lost through a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or by any other means. The message you'll find here will probably be different from what you'd find on most other sites like this. It may challenge your thinking regarding life, death, God and the Bible. Please examine the Bible for yourself and find comfort and truth in the strength of God's Word.
If you do not already have a copy of "Safe In the Arms of God" and have recently lost a baby, please contact us. We would love to hear about your little one and send you a copy of this helpful book.

I came to realize that even though I cannot care for him every day, as I do my girls, I could remember him in small ways. I want to share some of the ways that we remember Mason and the blessings he brought into our lives.
necklace that has each of my girls' names on it. My parents had a charm made up with Mason's name and it hangs alongside my girls names. I love wearing this necklace. The second gift was a pair of earrings that were given to me by a dear friend. The earrings were made using Mason's birth stones. I love wearing them!
Every year we purchase our girls a Christmas ornament and this Christmas we also purchased Mason an ornament. We love decorating our tree each year as a family. The girls enjoy rediscovering all their ornaments and talking over the memories that accompany each ornament. It is only fitting that we have an ornament that holds the memory of our precious son.
In the week following Mason's death, Chris and I talked about setting money aside each month to do something in his name. We did not know what to do but trusted that the Lord would bring opportunities our way to give too. We have been so blessed by the opportunity he has brought us through donating books to hospitals and funeral homes and through this blog. We have been so blessed by the generous support of others who have given to see that this book is given to more hospitals and funeral homes.
