I was baptized as a baby, but I have been seeking God all my life. I really started to pursue a relationship with Jesus in my early 20s, when a lot of young women and men are searching to find who they are. One scripture that I have always clung to, whether I was walking closely with the Lord or bumbling my way through life, hanging on by a thread, was Jeremiah 29:11.
It has become my family's scripture, the one my husband and I pray out loud, in the quiet, together and alone. It really sums up what we all need to make it in this crazy world: HOPE. Placing my trust in God to guide me and help me navigate life was the best decision I ever made. It doesn't make things perfect, but it makes life enjoyable.
This scripture has a particular place in my heart as it relates to my hopes and dreams to become a mother. In the 'About Me' section of my blog, I talk a little about my road to motherhood because it was the catalyst for a lot of big changes in my life. The news of my health troubles and infertility led to me making big changes in my life spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. The greatest joy to come out of my journey to motherhood has been my relationship with Jesus.
I'm going to unfold a story to you over the next few months. It is a story of grief, brokenness, heartache, trust, redemption, love, friendship and of course, HOPE. I pray you will follow my blog as I share a very personal but important story, one that changed the course of my entire life and led me to a place I hope each and every one of you finds.
My greatest wish for you is that you find your purpose and embrace the man or woman God created you to be, for you to have hope and a future.
Yours in health,
