God’s Promise To Me

God’s Promise To Me

It has taken a while for the reality to sink in; to believe that it’s really, truly, real… We are going to have more children. I kept one of the pregnancy tests (yeah, there were a bunch of them) out on the bathroom counter for about a week, just because I’ve dreamed about having a […]

Thankful Doesn’t Begin To Describe It

Thankful Doesn’t Begin To Describe It

“Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind” (Psalm 107). It is hard to know where to begin, this Thanksgiving, in gratitude to my Lord for the blessings of this past year. Do I start with my husband’s promotion? My beautiful new home? The fact that […]

The Lord’s Next Chapter For Us

Windows in the NICU

Windows in the NICU

Before, Dominic, I’d never been to the Neo-natal Intensive Care unit (NICU) in my life. After Dominic, I never wanted to go to the NICU again in my life. God had a different plan. Doesn’t He always? I continue to be left breathless in amazement from the ways the Lord has shown Himself to me […]

Discipline, Punishment, and Wedding Dresses

Discipline, Punishment, and Wedding Dresses

Bad circumstances in life do not tend to bring out the best theology in me. For example, I know that the Lord did not cause or allow my baby to die to punish me. I know He is good, and He works for my good, in all circumstances. Regardless, there are times when that Job’s-friends’-retribution-theology […]
