Randy Alcorn's Blog: Family

Sermons by Our Sons-in-Law

Stump and Franklin familiesI love to see young men preaching God’s truth in their local churches. One day recently Nanci and I viewed video messages by both our sons-in-law, Dan Franklin and Dan Stump.

Grandchildren, Grandparents, and Spiritual Heritage

Owen videoMy home church, Good Shepherd Community Church, recently showed this delightful video. In God’s providence we were seated behind Owen’s parents and grandparents when this was shown. Among other things, it demonstrates the power of a Christian heritage, and the potential spiritual influence of grandparents. 

Happy Mother’s Day to My Wife Nanci and Our Daughters Karina and Angie

Alcorn familyI am deeply grateful to the Lord for my wife Nanci and for our daughters Karina and Angie! Nanci is a great mom, and a fantastic grandma. I look at Karina and Angie now as moms who are in their thirties—the mothers of my grandsons—and I am just delighted to see their hearts for Christ and the ways God has gifted them.

Scottish or Irish?

Alcorn brothersI am Scotch-Irish (or some prefer Scottish-Irish), descending back to three Alcorn brothers who lived in Belfast long ago. There are indications the three brothers came from Scotland.

Truth, Grace and My Father's Conversion at age 84

Angie (Alcorn) StumpBecause of my daughter Angie’s pending surgery and diagnosis, and because the subjects of trust and trials are all pertinent in my heart right now, I wanted to share some thoughts about how the Lord uses pain and suffering in our lives.

Trusting in God’s Unfailing Love

AngieMany thanks to those who have been praying for our daughter Angela Stump and her health, and peace and encouragement for her and her family. (See my original post about Angie, and the update.) Her surgery has been scheduled for Thursday June 14, at 9 a.m.

The Latest on Angie

Angie and Dan StumpOur daughter Angela called us late yesterday afternoon to let us know that the needle biopsy the doctor performed on Tuesday was inconclusive, meaning it told them nothing, so it’s not bad news or necessarily good.

Cancer Comes to Our Family

Angie and Dan Stump"Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous....They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them."  —Psalm 112:4,7

Friday our youngest daughter Angela was diagnosed with cancer.
