For a few very hard years this word was my mantra.
The word means
-undismayed; not discouraged; not forced to abandon purpose or effort
-undiminished in courage or valor; not giving way to fear
But the truth is, I was often dismayed by everything that had taken place, and I did battle discouragement. I battled fear and doubts. I hurt and was angry, and sometimes "undaunted" sounded more like a mockery than a mantra, and I was determined to be real about all of it in these posts, thus the name, Undaunted Reality. More than that, though, I was determined to live undaunted, not because I'm so great or strong, but because my God is, and no matter what this world looks like, He is the only reality that matters.
I pray I live the reality of Him beautifully undaunted.

With Loving Memories

 Rob Phillips
August 6, 1968-February 15, 2011

Rob Phillips suffered a massive heart attack just after midnight on February 15, 2011.
Despite medical efforts, he did not survive.

His family deeply appreciates your prayers as we deal with the shocking loss of such a wonderful man.

For each of you who have known and loved Rob...thank you.

If you would like to bless the family in some way, a trust fund has been set up for the children, donations can be made to the V-Foundation for Cancer Research, or you may contact the family for further ideas. Thank you for your prayers.


  1. Seeing his picture ... it's hard to think he is no longer with us in person. Know we are sending our love and prayers from afar ... we love you!

  2. Sweet friend, I am so sorry for your pain and loss.

    Please know my prayers continue for you and your precious children.

    Love you, sweet friend.

  3. Jerri -

    God is holding you in the palm of his hand during this unexpected crisis. I pray that God will reveal himself in a mighty way to each of you and you grieve and mourn yet again.

    Love you,

  4. Oh Jerri. I found myself in tears praying for you in church this morning. I got home a little while ago, and have just now read this about Rob. I'm still shocked and have no words... I love you, friend. I will keep praying for you and for Anna & Robert.

    Much love,

  5. Nicole, thank you for the prayers.

    All of us are shocked, and no one has words... :-)

    Love you,
