I love my life. The reason I am able to love my life so much is because I know that Jesus loves me. Because of His love, I am able to love...my Savior, my husband, my daughter, my family, my friends, my job, my calling.
I grew up in a ministry home, so I don't really know anything different. When I went away to college....all of 40 miles from home...I majored in "full time ministry." That's where I met my amazing husband, Steve. After being married 4 years, we had our daughter, Claire.
Our life has been full of trials...losing a job, losing a home, trying for 4+ years to have another baby...but we have found so much joy through those difficult times. The Lord has never left our side, never failed us, and proven time and time again that He will never leave us or forsake us. Looking back over the last 9 years....I don't ever want to go through some of those trials again, but I am so thankful for them and who we've become as a couple and a family because of them.
Right now a huge part of our journey involves trying to have another baby....and considering the path of adoption. My hope and prayer is that these entries will help me remember where we've been, to be reminded of the journey...the valleys and the mountaintops....and hopefully encourage others along the way.
