In Honor of Matt Kell and Cathy Spehn

The two people in the photo below are Matt Kell and Cathy Spehn. Their extraordinary lives and shared love of Christ provided the inspiration to create the New Day Foundation for Families in their honor.

The New Day Foundation serves children who have lost a parent to cancer, providing financial relief, counseling referrals, basic emergency needs for the family during their most difficult times. 

Each Fall, the Matt Kell Memorial Golf Outing is held and serves as the primary fund raising event for the foundation. It is our hope that additional events can be held throughout the year to benefit this worthy cause.

In the meantime, I encourage you to keep this 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in your prayers. And if you are so moved, please donate online at

Below is a video put together for the folks who attended our most recent golf outing.
It offers a glimpse into the families who have been helped by the foundation.

  1. I started the book this afternoon on my Kindle and read it until my flashlight gave out tonight. (I am reading the Kindle by flashlight so as not to wake my husband). Your story is amazing and your journey of faith a blessing. We are missionaries in Jamaica. I saw you on the fox cable affiliate here on a broadcast of Huckabee.

  2. We were honored to have you on our Chit Chat Cafe Live Show! Your book, “The Color Of Rain” is amazing, and our listeners loved hearing from you. Your family is in our prayers for continued blessings. To think that out of unthinkable sorrow came fabulous joy….we hope you visit us again on Chit Chat Cafe Live. Best to you always, Nancy and Lisa. You can enjoy the mp3 archive click 11/3
