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!

Someone I'd Never Met

To miss someone you’ve never met
Might not make sense right now.
And though you may not comprehend,
I’ll try to show you how.

There was a time in mommy’s life
Where each and every day,
I missed someone I’d never met
So all I did was pray.
I prayed that God would hear my prayers
And help me not to fret,
But all the while I still missed,
Someone I’d never met.

But in this trial I received
What most will never get.
I got to pray and love on you
Before we'd ever met.
Before you even were conceived
I’d written this to you.
God set aside this precious time
Before your big debut.

And sometimes if I close my eyes
I see it all so clear.
Anticipation fills the room
The day was finally here.
I got to hold you in my arms,
No longer did I miss,
This baby that I longed to meet,
And finally got to kiss.

That day will be an answered prayer
I never will forget.
The day I finally get to meet
Someone I’d never met.

You

No paint will fill this void of mine,
And shutters will not do.
My heart, it aches for one main thing
And that my dear, is you.

I’d gladly give it all away
To make my dream come true.
My dream, it is for this one thing
And that my dear, is you.

I’d give away this house of mine
Your daddy, he would too.
As long as we could have one thing
And that my dear, is you.

But when these thoughts consume my mind,
I know I can cling to,
The one who answers all my prayers,
And that my God, is you.

And if a day arises when
I doubt I’ll make it through,
There is a rock that never moves,
And that my God, is you.

And even in my sleepless nights,
You make my spirit new.
My joy will come from this one thing,
And that my God, is you.
