We are branching out to inform you of the dangers that we have warned our kids about and some new ones that we are learning of. Each time we hear of something new to be aware of we will research it and post about it. We want you to be informed. Here is the link to the new “BEWARE” section of our site.
Blessings from all of us at WFK
Feel free to email us with any topics you would like us to be aware of or discuss.
“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
quote by Rose Kennedy
Today we would be wishing Joshua a Happy Sweet 16th Birthday! It is hard to think that it was 3 years ago that we celebrated his birthday here with him. I often wonder who he’d be today.
With school starting back up for the year in a couple of weeks we hope that you share the knowledge of the choking game that we wish we would have had. It is real and happening around the world with little to no knowledge of the consequences.
We hope that you would share Joshua’s story and educate your children so that it doesn’t happen to you.
Happy Birthday Joshua, we love and miss you dearly!

A drop of information can save your life “choking game kills”
Liking this knowledge makes a ripple!
Sharing begins a wave to save others!
… being from small town Iowa, where everybody knows everybody, I have been overwhelmed by questions about the movie that premiers tonight at 8pm on Lifetime. The Choking Game Film is based on the book titled, “Choke” written by Diana Lopez. I am so glad it is coming out to educate parents. I hope the audience understands that the most deadly age is 13 as with my son Joshua. I would have loved to have had this make the network to reach even more people. Not everyone has cable/satellite.
THE CHOKING GAME airs TONIGHT! 8pm on Lifetime — Miss it? It also airs tomorrow at 12am, 1pm & 10pm…
Blessings on the completed project but now is when the questions will begin…
Today we/my family are at a family reunion. We are talking about what has happened since Easter (our last big get together) and I am telling them all to watch the movie so they can get more of an understanding of how Kids get drawn in to try this deadly activity.
Blessings to all of you!
It’s that time again, the countdown to the Polk County Fair held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Around the farm once again, we all hurry and hustle around, the kids are getting their final projects ready and complete for county fair! This is a hard time for our family as the county fair is our week-long “vacation”. All of our family’s hard work is showcased at the fair. Thia year Josi will do a project about the choking game and how education is needed so parents ans caregivers get the right information to pass along to their children.
This was a week that Joshua loved so much! He was truly an all around 4-Her! His sisters and brothers continue to be active in 4H and most conversations will include memories of Joshua.
We hope that all the 4-hers, FFA members and families have a fun and safe county fair!
