Lately I have felt far away from God. Sometimes He seems so close that I can almost touch Him, other times the silence is deafening. This time, a month, then two went by, and I hardly heard His voice, rarely felt His presence.

Imagine my surprise when I found myself pregnant 6 short weeks after suffering a miscarriage. Fast forward and that new life just turned 1!

On Thanksgiving Day 2011 I found out I was pregnant. By Monday morning I knew something was seriously wrong. My husband held me as he told me that we were not going to cry, we still had a baby today, we would pray and trust God. That night as I laid in bed watching T.V. I placed my hand on my stomach – I was still a mommy, if even just for one night. Continue reading “Mariah’s Lasting Gift”
I had too many things that I needed to get done that Saturday in March. None of them got done. But God used that day to change my life and start me on a journey towards PEACE. Continue reading “Strength in Weakness”
