A lesson learned!
Laura goes to a women’s retreat with Forest Hill Church - Little that I know that on the retreat the Lord was going to speak loud and clear to me, He opened a door in my heart and a light to understand His mercy better. i learned that God uses our struggles to let His light shine in the world, for those around us to see Him in us and His love. I understood that longing for a child more than for Him was idolatry, and as Christ followers we are called to love Him above all things, including something as good and pure as a baby.
We then realized that we needed to fill that whole with God and Him alone, and there I found peace and knew that somehow God will provide and will give us a baby one day.
We have days that are harder than others, when a good friend tells us their joy of getting pregnant, and over and over and over, its hard but we love them and are happy for them, just hope that joy can be ours sooner than later.
in other News, we are Homeowners of a beautiful home!
“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives and the one who seeks dins , and to the one who knocks it will be opened” - Matthew 7:7-8

Living with infertility.. This season in our lives has been so far the most difficult struggle I have ever imagined having, and doing it by ourselves was not the smartest thing we could have chosen to do. So we decided to share it with some friends and even went to a healing service at Forest Hill Church (where we are members), and both Pastor David Chadwick and Jonathan Scott where both there, and prayed for our future children.
Along with our life groups from church and our families we had great support system, but still felt like there was a big whole in our hearts that longs for a baby. So we didn’t just pray we started to give thanks because as the bible teaches us, in Samuel 1:27 when a woman prays for a child the Lord our God who is always faithful will grant what we asked.
On this promise alone we continue to pray without ceasing, remembering Sarah and Abraham who at their old age were barren, and God fulfilled His promise.
“By faith Sarah herself when she was unable to have children, received the power to convene offsprings even though she was past the age, since she considered the ONE who had promised was faithful”- Hebrews 11:1
