About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I am a Christian, saved and sustained daily by my wonderful Savior. I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, Mitch; we got married at 19! I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, an aunt, a co-worker, and a woman that struggles with infertility. God has used this struggle to completely transform my life. I have experienced fear, hope, anxiety, compassion, trust, peace, tears, excitement, pain, laughter, and many other things that come with infertility. But most of all, I have a deeper trust and friendship with my Creator and my husband, and for this, I am forever thankful. The purpose of this blog is for me to remember the ups and downs of this trial, and how my Savior has brought me through it all. For those who have never struggled in this area, I hope this blog will help you see a glimpse into the life of someone struggling with infertility, so that you might better know how to encourage them through these difficult times. I also pray that this blog will help other women struggling in this area to know that you are not alone! There is a river of peace that is found in Christ that can help you through even the darkest of circumstances, I promise!

Bridesmaids Dresses, Assumptions, and Sweet Rolls

Baby,

One thing that mommy and daddy are pro's at is weddings. We have been in our fair share of weddings over the past several years. Aunt Rachel is getting married in 5 weeks! This is super exciting, but I really wish you could be there for it.

When I bought my dress for this wedding 4 months ago, I bought a dress that would accent my adorable baby belly. Well, seeing as how the wedding is 5 weeks away, and as of today I am for sure not pregnant, looks like my assumption about this dress was pretty foolish.

I put a time frame on God. Me, little ol' me, made a complete assumption that by April 5, 2014 I would have you in my belly, and you would be so big and healthy, that I would need a dress to accent this new adorable feature of mine.

Lesson learned.

Oh and guess where I'm going on my way home from work? To Wal-Mart, to buy a pack of sweet rolls. We all know what that means...

I've got to keep reminding myself that God is still good, even on the days that I don't understand His timing. Maybe I am learning these lessons now so that I can teach them to you one day, like my momma taught them to me.

I love you baby, and I pray that my assumption that I will hold you in my arms one day doesn't turn out like my bridesmaids dress assumption.

- mommy
