Hi Wendy I 'am new to FFN and found your page. Thanks for all you do. It is great to see all the Christian FF. The Devotions look great and I plain on sharing and studing them. Again thanks for all. Please let me know if you have any more out there to buy.
Wendy, You have my permission to use any of my photographs for the Federation of Fire Chaplains website. I consider it an honor to be able to serve our Lord ins such a manner and that of course includes sharing my creativity in the form of my photography. Take care of yourself. Mike

Hello Wendy,Hope you and your family are doing well. I cut right to it, Im in NC and have FF in our dept. with a very sick child, Prayer is our way of life here so what better way to get the prayers out. Visit the site below and pray hard for this Child http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/maggiejoynicholson
Hey Wendy, How are you? I see your from Texas. I plan on visiting Dallas in the not so distant future ( new business venture). Have you ever been there? If so, you will have to let me know what to see. Thanks, and Stay Safe!
Nice to know you are showing the love of Christ in this profession. That was also my goal. I hope you will read, and pass on the word--regarding the book about me, doing just that! "Angel Promises...Remembering the Youngest Firefighter." "The Thirtymile fire" is expected to be a movie...out sometime after the latest re-make of "Fire On the Mountain,"(book by John N. Maclean) by National Georgraphic films in 2009. See www.karenleefitzpatrick.com The Lord is everpresent, and with us always, even through the hardest day, and the most horrific fires!--KF
Hi Wendy, I'm not sure how to connect you or provide the FFN address for another member being new to FFN. I have had the opportunity to talk a couple of times to a wonderful Fire Chaplain in South Africa that I am sure would benefit and truly enjoy having the opportunity to take advantage of the resources that you have access to. Here's one of our fire chaplains on scene at a reported drowning in my 1st in district, which happens to be the pacific ocean... : ) Take care, Mike
I've met Ronnie before. I'll email him for more information. I've been here for 13 years now and on the Honor Guard for 10 (3 of which as the OIC), and did not know we had a state task force for funerals. I'm curious to see what his response is. We have a Chaplains association, but I had to teach them a class last year on funeral protocol at the county fire school. Unfortunately I was only afforded a couple of hours, which of course wasn't nearly enough time
Fortunately we don't have many LODD deaths here. Most of the funerals we've participated in have been non-LODD, but even still there never seems to be any direction. We try to be a leader in this aspect, but typically get railroaded by someone else who thinks they know how things should be.
Hey Wendy: keep the faith.....I served to serve and in the process found faith that has kept me pointing in the direction I need to keep.......NAFFVN and firefighterveteran.com/ web site...have a look...use the tools there in your efforts to help us...to help others...Project is called F.I.R.S.T. S.T.E.P. H.O.P.E. care for the caregivers.....check it out...in the meantime.....Keep smiling and Keep going at the bit "IT" cause sooner or later.....they them the other guys will get "IT"......Having served for my entire 26 year career as an IAFF member and as a member of our Honor Guard....as well as past president by election of my peers....for 7 years and three as emeritus....having served on over 155 pensioners funerals, four line of duty deaths and 6 firefighter suicides.....I will add here....you have my love admiration and support for your work and for the ministry.....
God Bless you
God Bless your hands and heart.....
much respect and
a "General Salute"
from my orgnaization to yours....
Thanks Wendy for clarifying that for me. I guess I misunderstood the purpose of your trip, but after reading your Bio I understand.
It's good to see that someone is taking an active role in LODD services. I've been involved in a few here and too often it seems as if there is no direction and there are several people trying to put their hands in the process, which makes a difficult situation even more so.
It would be nice to have a task force or something similar here to lay the foundation for consistent and adequate services.
Keep up the good work and God Bless. As far as I'm concerned, your job is just as important as any of ours, if not more so.
