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!

Dear ALL moms: SHUTUP

Dear ALL moms: SHUTUP

There have been two different articles going around Facebook this week. One that started out by a stay at home mom that was urging all other stay at home moms to shut up and stop complaining about their jobs. Then another by a stay at home mom that said, DON’T shut up; urging stay at home moms to complain less, but also not to be afraid to be open about the daily struggle it is to be a full time mom.

As a woman that is dealing with infertility, and has yet to become a mommy, these two articles make me sick.

I would give ANYTHING to have puke on my yoga pants,  or get peed and crapped on all day, or have to change 20 diapers a day for a living, or have to juggle all of these things that stay at home moms can’t make up their mind about whether they love or hate.

I get it, I've never walked in your shoes. I've never had a child, so I don’t know what it’s like to have the stress of being a stay at home mom. But, most of you have never walked in my shoes, and you should be thankful for that. Most of you have probably never desired a baby SO bad, and had to swallow the fear that that desire might never be filled.

So please, get off Facebook, and go cuddle your child. No matter how frustrating and difficult they've been today. No matter how many times they've puked and peed on you and drawn on your walls and stained your carpet. Go cuddle them, and kiss them, and sing them to sleep. Because I promise you, there are women out there that would give anything to trade shoes with you for a day.

-a mommy in my heart
