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!

Spark of Faith


With all of this news since Sunday, I have had a million emotions go through my mind and heart. On Sunday, I was scared and bitter and mad and angry and I pretty much lacked any faith that I would meet you one day. It was not my finest moment. Then, slowly but surely, God did a work in my heart, right in front of my eyes! He gave me peace, and strength, and comfort that literally surpass all understanding. As you know, one of my favorite poems by John Piper, The Misery of Job and The Mercy of God is something that I listen to often. Today was the third time I have listened to it this week. One of the sections stuck out to me most

Sometimes the spark of faith is slight
And does not make the darkness bright.
But keep it lit and you will find:
Far better this than being blind.
One little flame when all is night,
Proves there is such a thing as Light.
Remember now the place and price
Where Jesus promised paradise.
One answered prayer when all is gone,
Will give you hope to wait for dawn.

My spark of faith today is that I am pregnant. I AM PREGNANT. Words I never thought I would type. Words that I thought were so far out of the realm of possibility. Today, I am so thankful for this pregnancy. I am so thankful that my deep, dark, scary days of wondering if my body was capable of pregnancy are shattered. Those fears are gone! Even though this spark of faith doesn't fully make the darkness of this situation bright, it gives me hope to wait for dawn.
