Caring for A Loved One Who’s Lost a Child

I recently was talking to a dear friend at church. We were discussing how to be there for a loved one who’s suffering with infertility – particularly someone who has lost a child. It’s such a horrible pain and hole that is left behind to lose a child. It can be hard to know what…

I Did a Crazy Thing This Weekend…

To some this may seem like a silly post, but I think for me – it’s really important. I did a thing this past weekend. I did a thing that was completely out of the norm for me. I did a thing that I honestly never would have imagined doing. I did a thing that…
