You're Not Going Backwards, Just Higher

You're Not Going Backwards, Just Higher

I glanced down at my shoes when the conversation changed to pregnancy.

I reached over and wrapped my arm around Selah, hugging the very manifestation to a promise. Reminding myself of His faithfulness once before through her story, choosing hope. Again. Knowing that He is man true to His word, what He has promised He will do. That one day, it will be me sharing about a miracle pregnancy.

Baby showers still sting. Really bad. And that annoys me.

It's not even what my story is about.

A New Space

I wish I could invite each of you to my living room and we could sit down and chat. I know I say this all the time. But it's true. I hope you know how much I appreciate you showing up here, many of you, for years now. You reading these words, supporting me, and growing with me and the Father means more than you know! 

That's why I love so much our time together on Thursday's over on Facebook! So many of you send me emails asking questions that cover different topics (BTW keep those emails coming! If you have something you want me to discuss, send it over!), and I try to unpack those in our chats on Thursday's. It's so fun having you join with me in the conversation. So if you haven't already, like my Facebook page and join me live on Thursday's!
