Smiles all around

We're pregnant! We are overwhelmingly grateful for this precious gift of life growing inside right now. This is old news for most of you, but maybe for some of you - this is new news! Kalen and I have been praying for a child from our womb since day 1 of our marriage (Almost 7 years ago). You can learn more about our story Here.
I am 24 weeks along and we're expecting a precious baby girl. This momma is smitten and happy-tears grateful.
The journey has been the reward. Though it's been a hard journey, I've learned to walk so intimately with Jesus in surrender through many years of desperate prayers.

I had already been experiencing a lot of false/early labor in the previous weeks, but nothing that woke me up from sleep - so I knew these were something different. I immediately got up out of bed and started walking around, and they seemed to stay steady and strong 5 minutes apart for an hour and a half. I then decided to wake Kalen up and called my mom to come over. By then it was around 5:30 a.m., my mom gets to the house around 6... and off Kalen and I go to the hospital.
The second I entered the hospital, my contractions started settling down a bit. I entered Triage and was very discou…
PSALM 33:12I cannot say that this scripture is true for the nation of America anymore. With the rampant disobedience and liberal mindset, we have swayed from the foundation which has held our nation for generations; Jesus Christ. This post is not to bash to our nation, but to remind of us our countries founding, to ponder how far we've traveled away from that foundation, and pray for the Lord's gracious hand to lead us back to that place.
Hobby Lobby and Mardels posted a WONDERFUL, God-fearing add in the Houston Chronicle for 4th of July. I was so pleased to read it, but I was also very saddened with the realization of how far our Country has slipped from the Rock that it stood upon. We are no longer a nation that fears the One True God, but a nation that has...
