"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Announcement and Prayer Request!

I am so thrilled to announce that I found out yesterday that we are expecting blessing #5 at the end of October!  Normally I do not announce my pregnancies this early, but because of my recent traumatic loss, I am desperately seeking prayers!  I am super excited about this little one, but also a little apprehensive about getting excited this early.  Will you please keep my precious little one in your prayers?

Thank you so much for joining me in lifting up my blessing to the Lord!

"For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be."

~Psalm 139:13-16
