The Holiness of Home

I used to be obsessed with the fact that ONLY Wyoming, Delaware could EVER be called my “home”. Stuck to tradition and the love for deep meaning, another place simply could never hold the depth of what my growing up life held. That had been challenged deeply at the age of 14 when my familyContinue reading “The Holiness of Home”

Joy-filled, Grief-filled Community

“She’s really close, they think the baby may be born in just a few minutes!” My heart dropped after hearing these words. Tears instantly stung my eyes and started to flow without my ability to control them. Our dear friends we are in community with were having their second baby, a girl, only 6 weeksContinue reading “Joy-filled, Grief-filled Community”

A Band-Aid Won’t Cut It

‘My husband is a very gifted man,’ I thought to myself last night in bed. Though this is a very true statement, I meant it in more of a snarky kind of way. See, he has the gift of sleep. He could fall asleep within two minutes any time, any place and you know it’sContinue reading “A Band-Aid Won’t Cut It”

Living Hope

According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s powerContinue reading “Living Hope”

The Father’s Kind of Love

“Fierce love. It’s the best way I can describe the way I love her (Corrie). It’s a gift I can only truly understand when I look at my God – who fiercely loved. Not willing to leave me in my sin but provide a way out by giving up His life for me. I haveContinue reading “The Father’s Kind of Love”

Watching and Waiting

I naturally revolt against waiting. I like to know exactly what is coming. In this season with Anna, we know so little about the future. Right now, we are waiting on a test result that will change our lives. The major chromosome abnormalities, including Down syndrome, came back negative. But there are still several chromosomesContinue reading “Watching and Waiting”

Amnioinfusion Part 1

Today we had our first amnioinfusion appointment. Em and I traveled down to Denver in the morning and spent the day at Children’s Hospital. Two of the MFM doctors along with two stenographers performed the amnioinfusion. As a husband, it is difficult to watch your wife being stuck with a large needle. We had signedContinue reading “Amnioinfusion Part 1”

One Step at a Time

Life has dramatically changed in one week. Alex and I have been in a season of working full time, doing school online, and doing family life and ministry along with those for about 2 years now. It’s been a season that has been testing us more than most other seasons due to giving up theContinue reading “One Step at a Time”
