Wash Day (And our favorite EVER products!)

Wash Day (And our favorite EVER products!)

If you've been around here for some time, you've probably been on the journey with me of learning how to care for Selah's hair and skin. It's definitely an area I am always growing in, but man, I've learned so much along the way! 

Last week, a childhood friend sent a desperate text, "Hair help please!" She had just gotten a new foster placement and this sweet girl was in desperate need of hair care. I'm so glad I'm finally in a place where I can help! I actually know how to help! So she came over and I washed and styled sweet girl's hair and it was my honor to love on her and her foster mama in that way. 

I realized that many of you who have babies born from your heart might need the same help, so I'm going to take you step by step throughout our wash day. I'll show you exactly what to do, and tell you all about these amazing products we've been using lately.

1 in 8 Go Through Infertility. These Are Our Stories.

The theme for this year's National Infertility Awareness Week has been "flip the script." It's been amazing to see all the stories that have been shared over the past week of God's goodness and His faithfulness in the middle of so much pain. It's also been amazing to hear of miracle after miracle that He has performed in the stories of so many.

Infertility Gave Me You

Infertility Gave Me You

Our stories, they both started with brokenness. 

Mine looked like month after month, year after year of negative pregnancy tests. It's all I ever wanted to be, a mama. So when doctors and my flat belly told me it wouldn't happen, it was a deep pain, probably the deepest of my life. It wasn't suppose to be this way. My body is designed to conceive and carry babies. 

I don't like to think of your story as painful. It tears my heart in half to think of you being in pain. But the truth is, in a perfect world, before the fall, God intended mommies to carry their babies. Your birth mama, she loved you so deep, she knew she couldn't give you what you needed. So she made a brave choice, and chose life for you, a life she couldn't give.
