Parfitt Family News…

Well, hello, y’all!

It’s been much too long since I had the chance to post anything, but I haven’t found any time for such an undertaking! But at last, I have squeaked in some time to dust off my photos!

Trevor, my third-oldest brother, got married in May.Β From left to right…

And my second-oldest brother, Elliott, passed away suddenly a week later from heart failure. Then two days later, Rachel Jane Parfitt was born. Sadly, Elliott never got to meet his daughter.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and support during this difficult time! The Lord has abundantly blessed us beyond measure, and the church families around us have held up our hands!

Before Hannah left with her family for Washington State, I was able to get some portraits of my adorable nephew, Gideon!

Mabel was sure she was going to be part of this photo shoot!😌

Perfect Canon advertisement!πŸ˜‰

Thank you all for the encouraging comments! They remind me to keep posting!πŸ˜‚πŸ€­

  1. Hello! I found your blog recently through Abbie’s ( Thanks for giving us a bit of update in your life!
    I’m sorry to hear about your older brother’s death. I actually heard about it for the first time at the beginning of August at some church meetings, but I didn’t remember your last name. As I was reading this post, I was thinking, “This story sounds very familiar…” and then it clicked. I don’t remember which pastor brought this up as a prayer request… πŸ˜‰ Anyway, all that to say that there are people you don’t even know who are praying for Hannah. <3
    I'm looking forward to reading more posts!

    In Christ,

  2. Hi Leona!
    I have seen you on Abbie’s blog, too! So when I read your comment, I knew just who you were! Yes, you’ve probably read comments by us and seen pictures of us on Abbie’s blog!
    Thank you for your prayers. What is the name of the church that you go to? Thanks for commenting!


  3. I’d prefer not to say the name of my church for privacy reasons (I try to be careful what I post on the internet), but the church meetings were held in MI. πŸ˜‰
    You’re welcome!

  4. Always neat to find new connections!
    Great post, Naomi!! Loved all the pictures, especially of Hannah’s adorable family! Your Pleasant Photography skills continue to blossom. The picture of you holding Rachel with KK and Gideon looking on is my favorite!πŸ’—
    I’ll have to keep offering comments on behalf of your blog.πŸ˜‰πŸ€­

  5. Thanks all for the comments! After I commented, Leona, I realized that I think it’s a good idea not to ask/answer questions on the internet! πŸ˜” Thanks for sticking to that policy!😁 It’s amazing how far news has traveled about Elliott, and how many people are praying for us!

    I’ll try to keep posting, Stace, as long as I find time and things to post about…πŸ˜‚

    Haha, glad you like my photography, Abs! We sure had fun with them, and can’t wait to see them again!!!πŸ˜„
