Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Since the age of eleven, I knew I would never have biological children due to undergoing an emergency hysterectomy. Through my growing years and into adulthood, I held in so many thoughts and feelings about my barrenness. I used to tell myself, “One day, I’m going to have a lot to say about this.”
About seven years ago, I felt the need to write my story down. I started a journal and the words just came pouring out. Writing became my outlet and way of expressing the pains and joys of life, so in 2012, I decided to start this blog. It has become my personal stationary to the Lord and a love letter, of sorts, to my children.
I want so much for this blog to be a source of encouragement, comfort, and hope for others. I want it to be a place where people walking the path of barrenness can relate and find words for their feelings. Ultimately, my desire is to honor the Lord through it all – the ups, downs, misgivings, and glorified moments of life.
Thank you for visiting and spending some time here. You might read anything from the anguish of barrenness to the antics of raising children to the more serious issues regarding the state of our world.
I hope you find warmth, a comfortable spot, and a place where your sadness and joy are welcome.
I desire that you walk away feeling encouraged to live more passionately, purposefully, and intentionally.
More than anything, I hope you find enough grace, love, and faith to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
