eric’s last wishes.

In 2006, a small plane crashed in an Indiana corn field. There were no survivors.

Heather Jacobs was seven months pregnant with her fifth child when she learned that her husband, Eric, was on board. She opened their safe to get his will.

Little did she know that four months earlier, a vivid dream had prompted Eric to record a video with instructions for his family in case he died at a young age.

There are three videos telling the story, made by the Des Moines Register, that you have to watch. I cried like a baby, but the videos really are a testament to the fact that God is amazing.


About Kayla

I'm a full-time journalist turned work-at-home writer. I'm hitched to a shaggy-haired pastor and we're smitten with two wild + crazy boys: Joseph (3), who joined our family via international adoption, and Asher (1), who came the old-fashioned way. I drink strong coffee, I like pretty things, and I believe there's beauty in the broken. I hope Many Sparrows will encourage you to find worth and live a story worth sharing. When I’m not changing diapers and sweeping Cheerios, I’m tickling the ivory keys of my old school MacBook as a freelance writer and editor. And when I’m not doing that, I’m sneaking into the living room in the wee hours of the night to blog about all of the things. (Primarily faith, family, style, adoption, design, and happy thoughts.)
