Don’t Let it Steal Your Joy

Lauren Bennett | March 8, 2019

Written by Amber Reynolds, Guest Blogger It was a Sunday just like any Sunday. I showed up early to serve at church, grabbed a cup of coffee, and headed to the sound booth. Then someone made a joke.

Inflammation and Infertility

Lauren Bennett | February 25, 2019

Written by Laura Gilstrap, Guest Blogger The female body is amazing. We are creatures of resilience. Of elegance.

The Broken Road

Lauren Bennett | February 6, 2019

Written by Whitney Ellis, Guest Blogger My mother reminded me a few years ago about a conversation we had while I was in Nursing School.  I had told her that my dream job would be to work with moms and babies in their homes.  I was fascinated with breastfeeding and wanted to support new moms.  I ultimately fulfilled that dream by working for 10 years as a Public Health Nurse,…

His Faithfulness and Goodness

Lauren Bennett | December 11, 2018

Written by Emily Williams, Guest Blogger This is a story of God’s goodness and faithfulness. I found myself pregnant at 15 years old. On December 3, 1997, a beautiful baby girl was brought into the world but her time with me was limited. I’ll never forget those moments in the hospital before her adoptive parents came to take her to her forever home. I was filled with so many emotions…

 

A Heart Crushed for Adoption

Lauren Bennett | December 6, 2018

Written by Kelly Briscoe, guest blogger Adoption. There’s so much depth in the word adoption. I knew from a very young age that adoption was going to be part of my story.

Kristi Graves | November 19, 2018

Written by Kate Starrett, Guest Blogger   It was summer of 2015 when my husband and I decided it was time to start a family. We had both had stable jobs, we had paid off our school debt, and had just bought a house with 4 bedrooms that I imagined filling with babies. The timing was just right, in my mind. We actually became pregnant quickly. Only 3-4 months after…
