For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the one with the big dreams! I’ve never doubted that they couldn’t come true either. I didn’t just dream of being a mom or having a career. I dreamed of having it all. That’s my big problem. I want it all, and I refuse to settle. I don’t refuse to sacrifice though, and that’s how I’ve … Continue reading On Being a Big Dreamer and Wanting it All
The most important thing I’ve learned during pregnancy: I’m not in control, and that’s okay. My body is taking over in ways I would not even know how to explain… meaning, it’s all good. My body was designed to know what to do even when I’m not really sure what’s happening. For example, my hips are naturally (through God’s wonderful design) beginning to shift and … Continue reading Pregnancy: Learning to Not be in Control
To all the women who come across this post, thank you for being here. I like to think of my journey to Motherhood as one that began before I saw the positive sign on a pregnancy test. I truly believe it began the first moment I realized that God was calling me to the role of Mama, and this includes my season as a Mama … Continue reading Scriptures for the Mamas & Mamas in Waiting
I get asked all the time: how did you tell Ryan? Was he there when you found out? Here’s how it all went down ♡ Telling a man that he’s becoming a father is a pretty big conversation. Like huge… and I took the responsibility very seriously. Before telling him about the first positive test, I took 4 more just to be EXTRA sure! I … Continue reading Watching You Become A Dad
Today’s post is one I prayed I would get the chance to write one day, and I am absolutely bursting at the seams to be living out a real dream come true. God has remained so consistent in this whole journey, and I want to begin by saying that I give Him all the glory, honor and praise. He is good now, He was good … Continue reading The Wife is Becoming a Mother
I’m about to be real honest. These last few weeks have been really hard. A morning last week, I walked passed Ryan, and he asked “what’s wrong?” and all I could say was “my brain sucks today.” He didn’t know that the entire morning, every critical, harsh thing I’d ever heard had been running on repeat in my mind that morning. But I put a … Continue reading “I can breathe again”
If you have something to say, say it. God woke me up in the middle of the night with a word, and I feel it in my soul that it’s one that I’m supposed to share. When I first awoke, I kinda looked around and realized it was still completely dark outside, and I wondered if there was a sound or something that had woken … Continue reading If you have something to say, say it.
I’ve only just recently processed the Event that put my husband in a wheelchair, then led him to a little scooter, then to crutches for 8 weeks and eventually to complete healing and the ability to not only walk but to run again. Sometimes, it feels like only a story until I look down and see the question mark shaped scar on his leg.
He says it feels like it happened ages ago. But to me, it feels like it happened just yesterday. Continue reading Ryan’s Story: Miracles, Medicine, and the Role of Christ in the Recovery Process
Good morning, (well, afternoon now) I’m writing this post as I prepare for a follow-up visit to my family doctor in regards to some testing I had done a little over a week ago. I chose the title for this post before knowing the results of my exams because I believe in a powerful God, and I have been praying with an expectancy that regardless … Continue reading Doctor’s Visits & Answered Prayers
I became part of a community. Having lived in Toronto for almost 3 years now, you would think I would have networked myself enough to develop a new set of friends… I’ll be honest though, I’m kind of a friend snob. I don’t let just anyone to my inner circle. I guess I’ve either been burned too many times or I just have been so … Continue reading I Did Yoga for 60 Days and This is What Happened…
