We are a couple of newlyweds who were married just six months when Tyler was diagnosed with testicular cancer. This blog is our ever-evolving testimony of God’s immeasurable grace through the heights and the depths of life and love.

We never expected to become so familiar with cancer in our first year of marriage but we count this season as a blessing. Our faith grows strongest in times of trial and suffering, and it is this deep and desperate faith in Christ on which we are building our marriage.

Despite appearances, this is blog is not meant to be directed toward married couples or Christians. We hope anyone will feel comfortable reading it and welcome and encourage questions and comments.

“Heights of Love” comes from the Christian song “In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townsend.

  1. A friend of mine shared your blog with me and I just wanted to tell you that it is really awesome and inspiring. I have recently been diagnosed with cancer as well and started my own blog too, partially to share my testimony and as a way to keep people informed on my progress.

    I will be praying for you both during this difficult season; and that this time only strengthens your love for God and your love for one another.

    God Bless You Both!!!

    With Love,


  2. Dear Matthew,

    Thank you for stopping by the blog! I’m touched to know that God has used this blog to inspire you. I’m sorry to hear about your recent cancer diagnosis. I visited your blog and am amazed that you are able to so willingly share what you’re going through, both physically and spiritually. Very powerful! Thanks for your prayers; we will also be praying for you and will stop by your blog to see how you are doing.

    Blessings to you,

    Rebecca and Tyler

  3. Your story reminds me of Laura Story. I had the privilege of hearing her speak a month ago … if you have not heard her testimony or her song (Blessings) look her up … I think you would enjoy it! Will be praying for you!

      • Her husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor within their first year of marriage. He has suffered short term memory loss and other complications due to a surgery. Your heart reflects, much like hers, her trust in her Maker and the knowing that His plans are ultimately good. Keep going… Keep sharing… Keep loving Jesus … He is using you!
        Romans 8:18
        For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
