Too many times I receive an answer to prayer, but only rejoice temporarily. Then the dark cycle begins again. Difficulty–>Emptiness–>Questioning “Why”–>Doubting the “Who,” which is God. As I’m getting older an more preoccupied; I realize that I MUST stop and record my journey with Jesus. This blog is just one of many outlets. An email […]


I may have one free hand, but it’s rare to have two free hands these days. Thus, the recent absence from my blog. Nevertheless, in the newborn haze, I’ve had many of those “aha,” “good-to-note,” and “I-wish-I-would’ve-known” moments. So, here we go.

October 18, 2013--Our little girl finally arrived!

35 Weeks Pregnant with Baby Girl

Last night Josh told me that he thought this baby looked bigger than Caleb did at 35 weeks. Notice, guys, he said the baby not the mother. Good move!
